    Why?????

    Please, forgive my ignorance, but can someone tell me why in the name of Pete (not Fagerlin) people put 3.0s on a rigid ss? I understand wanting a little suspension, but doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of a "rigid" bike. Not to mention the weight penalty. I'm sorry, but those wheels just look out of place on that otherwise choice looking ride. Just my .02 ¢.

    There are fatties all over the place in Alaska.

    That is a choice ride. Great for the deep stuff. That bike is made for the long snow races.

    It's a beach bike! Sand, snow, whatever you hit and need float. Think of the possibilities. There's alot of Alaskan shoreline just waiting to be ridden. Pat Irwin

    cogs?

    It looks like it has 3 cogs. I'v enever seen that--still trying to figure out this whole SS thing. Can you switch the cogs during a ride? Does it require an EBB? Please advice.

    Sweet looking bike.

    multi-cog SS setup

    Sweet looking bike.
    Priest, after many years of SS only riding, I find it easier to use a QR cassette wheel with 2 different cogs(usually 16/18 or 18/20 for snow) instead of spinning a FW off in a vise every time I want to change gears. When all you ride is a SS, this setup makes life much easier. It's also easier than a flip-flop hub, which I also have as backup. The 3rd small cog is so the cassette lockring will lock onto the freehub. It's the small cog in the cassette that mates to the lockring. Hope I don't offend anybody....
    I never have changed gears while on a ride, although you can easily enough, but I do change frequently before a ride, such as my 10 mile uphill commute after it has snowed all day while I'm here at the shop. Or if I decide to take the offroad trail home that's much tougher than the road for my aging body. Hope you guys understand. I've been able to run QR on all my steel frames.
    As for the orange zipties, wouldn't you know it but I ran out of black ones just before building it. I'll replace them today so you guys feel better.
    As for the bike, the Large Marge's are nice. A bit hard to change tires/flats, but all the more reason to not skimp on tubes, etc. For those who don't want to be limited to established trails, you'll now be able to hit the beaches of the world and ride until they say we can't anymore. This is also the preferred snowbike setup for those who detest windtrainers. And it won't set you back but a few bucks!
    The 1x1 is unchanged but for the color, and the brake bosses have to be shaved down for the rims to fit. Disc only!
    I heard a rumor of a tweeked 1x1 with even wider clearance in the future, so let Surly know if you're interested.
    Hope it warmer there than here, Alaska Pat Irwin

    Someone had to complain about the orange zipties… They have been replaced with some almost-matching pink ones… Sleep well…

    Pat,

    Have the Surly boys told you when the rims will be ready for sale?? The last I heard was late summer and I'm really wanting one for my unicycle. I'm having my unicycle frame built with magura rim brake mounts, so I can use Magura HS-33's in the summer with an Alex DX-32 hoop and MegaBlaster 2.5, and just memove the brake and use the Large Marge in the winter with a Gazzilla 3.0. I'm pretty sure the Marge will clear the Magura brake bosses, since they don't stick inward as far as canti bossses.


    cheers.... Mojoe from Iowa

    Marge is scheduled to arrive in June, give or take a few weeks. They'll be dark anodized and eyeleted for an even better wheel. The XC version is drilled out on the inner wall, and the DH is not. 65mm wide. Perhaps it's time for a uni in the Iditarod Trail Race!
    Later, Alaska Pat
