    pics of the new ride

    Here is my first SS in all her glory. My first hardtail in several years, and my first rigid fork... EVER! Of course that old Quadra 21 I had years ago was probably pretty darn close to rigid other than the crappy steering.

    First ride was a bit harsh with the rigid fork. This was no surprise coming off of a 5" trail bike. I have an old 80mm Marzocchi that I may try out at some time, but for now I am really having fun with the rigid fork. It is not so harsh once I got used to it and I love the quick and precise steering.

    The trail pic was taken in the remote wilderness of my backyard, which is my new project now that I have the SS built. Hoping to build a little trail back there to use as a test track and a place for the kids to ride.

    I have to admit I am really loving the rigid fork on my Surly.
    I agree that it takes a little getting used to but once you have it is good fun.
    That backyard of yours looks awesome. Wish I had a backyard like that one.

    Here is my very similar Australian based Surly 1x1.

    I took my 1x1 for its second ride today. Unfortunately it was on the road, as the trails are snow/slop here. The little bit of trail I did was awesome though!

    Nice builds.

    The rigid wouldn't be so harsh if you weren't putting so much weight on your wrists...
