My new ride, just picked it up today. Surly Ogre XXL 24" shop build
Deore XT full triple drivetrain 180mm and XT BB
XT Hubs, DT TK-540 rims, 23mm 36h
Specialized Phenom saddle 155
Surly nice rack
Schwalbe Mondial in 700x40
Shimano Bar end shifters
Dimension flat top, shallow drop, drops - Nitto RM-014 dirt drops are on the way
Cane Creek stem and levers
45NRTH Heiruspecs platforms
Shimano clipless MTB pedals (shoes aren't here yet)
Other gear info
Specialized Max XL Universal helmet fits my 62mm head perfectly where a POC didn't
Pearl Izumi MTB shorts fit me well at my height too
Endura Humvee shorts, also good, well made
I'm 6'5" with a 37" measured bike inseam and about a 38 shirt sleeve, this bike really feels nice, best fit of anything I've owned easily.
*** NOTE *** After the initial shine has worn off, the frame is turning out to be small for me. If you notice in my picture the bar drop from the saddle is pretty deep and it turns out my lower back and hamstrings don't cooperate with that drop at my fitness level.
A common issue at my height is by the time the seat is high enough getting the bars up is difficult on factory size frames. I've added a steerer tube extension and now have the height where it should be, but really I need a 68cm or 27" frame so the only other option at my size is a full custom geo build.
I love the Ogre and will likely see if the new change is enough and stick with it, but at some point I may wind up doing the full on custom the Ogre was my last shot at avoiding. :-) n+1
***Another Note for the tl;dr crowd
I fixed my fit issues, realizing my seat height was waaaay too high, note the top pic vs the lower pics, look at the logo on the Ritchey post...about a 6-7cm difference. Also I realized that the TT length was a bit too long for drops to feel right for me, even with a shorter stem. I put the Jones Loop H-Bars on and I'm loving life on this frame. The flat bars feel really good on this frame and the new Big Apples rim combo makes the geo overall feel right again. Stunned how smooth and relatively fast the Big Apples are, if anything I'm rolling faster with them vs the 40mm Mondials (that could also just be fitness improving too).
The current configuration, gave up on the drops and went to Jones Loop H-Bars, Paul Thumbies, Avid Speed Dial levers. Axiom Paddywagon bag, Surly Nice Rack, 40mm Mondials.
Another change playing with things on the Ogre build. 33mm Sun MTX 33 rims, M525 hubs, and 60mm Schwalbe Big Apples (love them!)
