    Hmm. Seems like the kind of thing you can try out for now, and see how it works, without a huge $ commitment.

    A few posts back, a guy said to go with (bolt-on) bar-ends. And I agree. The change over from flat bars to drop bars can be a bit complicated/expensive if youre inexperienced. And you can get...

    Ha. Yes.

    On our Oregon to Maine trip, a short exchange that took place in NY state.

    Man: so where'd you come from.
    Us: we rode from Oregon.
    Man: hmm. And where you going to?
    Us: to Maine...

    Could be just what you need. Rigid fork, or suspension?

    For sure, see that its the right size for you.

    My opinion: dont spend a dime on it.

    There are still great deals out there on good quality used 90's mtbs that can be made into excellent durable touring bikes.

    When I started MTBing a loooong time ago, I was pretty awkward on downhills and technical stuff. But the opportunity to explore kept me going. Gravel & all-road riding opens up those opportunities...

    One thing I dont like about Surly is the name. Who wants to promote being a jerk?

    And the logo sucks too.

    3" tires.

    That rules out most bikes. I have a Krampus and I love it for singletrack riding. But I cant imagine using it for mostly road/gravel rides, even with different wheels.

    Thanks. Its an '83 Trek 620. An excellent gravel road bike, as the conversion from 27" to 700c wheels has left lots of room for tires/fenders.
