    A new commuter followed me home!

    Okay, that title was totally misleading, but I'm extremely excited about my new commuting machine and I had to share! It's a custom, handbuilt Burley cyclocross bike, which was made right here in my home town. I've always wanted a Burley but they are usually well out of my price range. I stumbled on this one and it was well priced, fits like a glove, came with fenders, 700x35c tires, nice components, has brazes for a rack and the whole things weighs in at only 20lbs! Anyway, it should be the ideal alternative to my 60lb Big Dummy, and now I can say I have both a Surly and a Burley!

    Oh you taint bag! This puts pressure on me to get my Gunnar up and running, but there is almost no way the build will touch the quality of bike you got there. Great pick up.

    You should absolutely get some mud tires and do the Eugene cyclocross series this winter and jump up onto Ridgeline and play the "Oh ****, I Can't Stop" game on the way back down. Nothing like two inches of mud and cantilevers to put the thrill into what is normally a pedestrian downhill....

    I suppose now you are on a roll, you'll need to consider one of these:

    Used it, shouldn't be too many greenbacks.

    Then surely, you'd be purely Surly, Hurley, and Burley!

    Just saw that you got owned on the cross forum. There is a general rule about the cyclocross forums, and that is to never, ever go there.

    Wondered if you would see that, I think you even warned me the other day that they are a bunch of pricks but I guess I had to find out for myself! If we ever go to a race together, I'll understand if you pretend you don't know me.

    If I see one on cl I'll have to pick it up based on principle, along with any other rhyming bikes!

    Cool, Sizzler! Ultegra, even. I sure wich they had stayed in the frame business. Are you going to leave it with drops or put flat bars on it?

    I'm digging the drops so far, and the sti shifters so I don't think I'll be putting a flat bar on this one. You have a burley tandem if I remember correctly.

    Yup- 96 Softride Samba. Nice bike. One of these days I just might end up with one of its folding cousins.

    This almost sounds like the subject line for one of those Viagra spam-mails.
