    That's a nice build there Matt; some lovely photos on your blog too!

    I'm quite envious of your local scenery. It looks like a great place to live

    I second that. I'd call it "a desolate awesomeness". The Ogre must feel there right in its environment (and so must Duncan).

    Surly Ogre with Salsa Fargo Fork

    I have my ogre set up with a V2 Fargo fork right now and there is a bit of a difference. I have not had a ton of time on the new fork but some. You can certainly feel it being a bit more flexy but nothing unexpected of the Fargo fork. I think it rides a bit more smooth with the Fargo fork and there is a difference in weight that is certainly not a bad thing but not super noticeable. I would recommend the Fargo fork if you want a bit of a smoothr ride and are trying to save weight but to me it probably wouldn't be worth it if I had to spend the money on the fork. (if the fork wasn't given to me). Edited for pictures.

    Very interesting. I'm sure we can all admit that the Ogre fork can be a bit harsh at times. It's the fork I'd choose for running a front rack, but without a load up front, a more compliant fork might be nice. A tad more offset could be a good thing, too. And the Fargo fork saves 1/2 pound off the stock fork. Might have to try this eventually.

    Hi woodsgroovin, they look very much to me like the Crud Raceguard and Crud Catcher.

    You can get them as a set called Crud Racepac,



    They're very sturdy and do a decent job for off-road guards.

    Thank you both. Looks like they have a RacePac for 29ers coming out soon so I might hunt those down. This is definitely my fender solution. Thanks again.

    Looks like my links died on the earlier posts of mine. Same as CB's Setup.

    Hey guys, I have a question...
    I've been on the market for a while for a frame to build as an SS29er but also want somehing I.can slap gears on, load up cargo, and take on an adventure weather it be a road tour or bikepack. Seems like the ogre is.my best bet.

    Is this a decent bike for straight up singletrack?
    I guess so if its the same geo as a km.

    I would be riding it as an SS mtb more than anything since I don't really have the time to go on many trips so I don't mind having to swap parts as needed.
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    I think I can answer for both of us... first, thank you. Second, I think we're running the same Nokian Gazza Extreme 294's in the 29x2.1 size. I know that's what mine are, and I think Jordy said he's got the same ones.

    they're my first studded tires, and I'm blown away. Incredible traction in ice, slush, snow...I can't say enough. Granted, I don't have a studded tire comparison chart in my mind, but these things defy all logic and change my concept of what's rideable. Simply amazing.

    The downsides are that they are heavy and slow rolling on pavement. I just see it as training. The bike is a tank anyway.

    I love it for single track. It's a rougher ride than I was used to (came from full suspension) but now I find myself riding the Ogre more.

    I am digging the black. That is cool. I had a completely 'murdered out' commuter cx bike for a while... that Ogre is making me want to spend money

    @Gritter -are you planning on loosening fender for rear flat fixes? If, keep those struts short and fender close at the 9 oclock position, the wheel won't make it out the dropout while fender is on. Pair that hassle with IGH nuts, and stiff sidewalls and voila, 20mins to fix a flat. No biggie on tour, but you sure will be late on that commute into work...

    ^^ I have those same Cascadia fenders, and I set them up too close when I first built mine. I had never had sliding dropouts before and didn't even think about it.... quick reposition, and it's easy. I have two wheelsets (studs, slicks) and I swap them out all the time... but yes, check before you trim those struts!!
