    This May Be My Next Touring Bike

    From the Living Car Free group.

    Throw some trekking bars on this sucker and I'm in love.

    The new Surly! Warning surprise spoiler.

    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

    The Free radical's problem was excessive flex but this is non-issue with the extended frame being made of chromoly. I wonder if this is the end of a very good product, Xtracycle!

    Well, Surly and Xtracycle are working together on this. Also not everyone wants a bike that can just be a SUB. The free radical you can put on for when you need it and then take it off and have your bike back to normal.

    With this, you get a bike that is designed to be that long, so it should be stronger and possibly lighter.

    That bike pisses me off, I was always sure that at 50cm the chainstays on my touring bike were longer than anyone else. Now I got to build another one!
