    So a guy came into the shop with one of these on his rig. I liked it so much I've ordered enough for every bike I take on the MuP trails. Finally, a small, well-engineered bell worthy of putting on...

    Debating that...I wanted to use primarily just for snow/ice, and keep studded tires on all winter. That kind of negates the need for fenders, as when the slush begins I'll go back to the Surly Cross...

    But for a new drive side rear cone; she'd be on the road today. That's what I get for rebuilding a 32 year old bike with a 9.5 TPI rear axle. Sadly, a new cone will take at least a week to arrive,...
