opened some presents and discovered a new surly hub, new cog and lockring, and brooks saddle. 'twas just what i needed to get the beater beast back on the road after a horrifying hub-stripping incident. a short while later i had the new hub and spokes laced to the old rim and the saddle chopped and ready to go. may the fun begin!
and a close-up of the brooks after a quick chop:
i feel all happy and giddy. anyone else spend christmas playing with new bike goodies?

Bike looks clean. What stem is that?

thanks for the complements on the chop. it was done via carpet-knife and sandpaper. i started using a dremel to sand the edges but it made the whole shop smell like burning cow ass so i decided it was probably overkill.
as for the stem, it's a nitto dynamic 80mm that i found collecting dust in a bucket of old threaded stems at work.
and i'm glad someone noticed the b-e-a-utiful space monkey spokecard. 'tis the only one i rock.
