    Nice ride man. One of those is on my short list for new single speed. Let us know how it is after you ride for a while.

    I really dig the setup w/ the maxxis skinwalls. For some reason the crank just doesn't do it for me though.

    What do you mean the crank doesn't do it for you?

    More info here, for those not lurking the Surly forums: http://forums.mtbr.com/surly/mint-gr...ss-996802.html
    it's a challenge some of us are ultimately worthy of.

    idk, for some reason it just stuck out. I am thinking a modded 960XTR crank would be pretty sweet, paint matched to the seatpost.

    Yeah for sure, I'd like to upgrade that too. That's just the stocker crank for now.

    Don't let me be a negative Ned either...I really like the bike. So much so that you inspired me to keep moving forward with the color change on my 2011 KM.

    Great looking bike. I see you have the wheel slid all the way forward. What gearing are you running? Whats the chainstay length at? Thanks

    any shop should have that stand.

    right now the gearing is 33x20, but it's not entirely forward.
