    I love the extra coverage of my Longboards. Yes, they're a little harder to install, but if it taking you hours, maybe fender installation isn't your thing.

    - I don't have any experience with an Ogre, though I had a Karate Monkey for a while. The Ogre uses heavier tubing, which isn't a plus in my book, and they both suffer...

    It's been going well. Not a whole lot of saddle time lately, with the holidays and splitting my riding between this and my newly converted 650B Trek and my fixed gear Crosscheck, but I think the...

    Height has no impact on HT vs. full sus (unless a very short person is trying to get a long travel dually).

    27.5 is all the rage these days, but for pushing hard when you're tired, I would...

    That's exactly correct. 650B is only 1" bigger in diameter than a 26er, so it doesn't take a very big tire to make up the difference.

    People have reported the B side can fit the 26 x 2.75" Dirt Wizard... that's a pretty big tire. If you really want 4" tire compatibility, you're looking at a specific fat bike frame (with a 100mm...

    I think Somas stack up well against just about any production steel bike out there regardless of price. I had a Juice for several years, and it rode very well, with some nice construction details...

    That orange was apparently only a prototype color; the production bike only comes in green.

    Trekking bars may have a million hand positions, but gawd are they ugly.

    I don't have any feedback on the Albastache bars--I'm actually waiting for them to get in stock so I can try a pair myself....

    I don't know anything about the Diverge. I much prefer the AWOL's sloping top tube and (I think) lighter weight tubing vs. the stiff, traditional touring bike of the LHT.

    That's actually one of my biggest complaints about my Camargue. I would much rather have more upslope to the top tube, a taller head tube, and fewer spacers. Then again, I'm coming from a mountain...

    It's definitely not as stout as the LHT. The tubes are smaller diameter, and (I think) thinner wall. In the Camargue's favor, it's designed for a front or front biased load, so it doesn't need to be...

    I notice when I carry my Burley two seat trailer around, it almost acts like a sail anchor in the wind, really dragging behind me... and that's not just due to the 70+ pounds of kids and stuff in the...

    25mm is the diameter difference between 650B and 26", so somehow putting on 650B would only raise the BB up by 12.5mm.

    It's doing pretty well so far. I like the handling, even though I mostly run with a rear load bias (my bike train: trail-a-bike and a Burley trailer). The top tube runs a bit short for ideal flat bar...

    A 700c rim is 31.5mm bigger in radius than a 26" rim. So, if you're using disc brakes, you can probably fit a 700c wheel on there, as long as your tire isn't significantly bigger and you don't want...

    Yeah, I think the LHT complete--and maybe ONLY the LHT--comes with an uncut steerer as a complete bike. Cross Checks, etc. seem to come cut.

    All Surly framesets (not complete bikes) come with uncut steerer tube, so you can get the bars as high as you want them.
