Hell, you introduce me to your friend Benjamin and you can take the BBM's sweet bike home. Then you'll be the envy of all foo-dom - how frickin' cool would that be?

My two year old, but newly renovated, Surly LHT. 54 cm frame, which means 26" wheels. And 26" wheels, in turn, mean that no SKS fenders fit the curve properly, unless you mount them ridiculously far out from the tyres...

Lowest gear is 22-34 and highest is 48-11, for ~16 to ~107 gear inches.

Crank...that is a vicious guard dog I have there.

They wouldn't be ridiculously far from the tires if you installed gigantic tires. Great bike, btw. My brother has an LHT and it is an excellent machine.

Here's my new toy. I've ridden it a couple of times and not done more than 4 foot drops as I'm a wimp and it scares me. I reckon it'll fly down the trails at Afan though....

While I was taking pictures of my office desk today, the nearly-setting sun came out and streamed in through the window in a very nice way.




My bike, the wannabe camwh0re.

(Also, wolfpack may recognize the cranks. )

It's working well, though I find myself wishing I had left a bit more give in the steerer. Oh well.

Thanks again.

Today's ride... formerly my rain bike and now my slush and snow bike.

The recent weather is the stuff that turns gearies into single speeds so the three speed hub is just what the doctor ordered.

The sticker says "fukenkarz" for anyone who's wondering.





PS -Those fenders really do a great job of keeping my bike shiny and it's rider (me) clean.

Stacey... the roads have been craptastic but a craptastic day on the bike still beats any day in the car.
