Actually your blog posting had some influence in my decision between s&a and SRAM. I really can't understand why these must have so big difference between gear ratios. I will open the hub and try to adjust it so that the first gear is really for low speed and second gear is for normal driving.

One of my options was also using only front derailleur. But I think now bike has quite clean and classic look.

A frozen ride today on my Traitor, which has been privileged to stay inside all this winter. But today I decided to take it out for a ride, so I switched out the usual 'cross front tire for a 2.1 inch Nokian (which fit nicely because of the Disc Trucker fork I installed earlier this year) and rode until my toes froze.

After my ride into work this morning in the snow. I'm about to head home. Couldn't get a fender to work correctly in front, so that's now on my to do list.

What was the fender problem? I've been seriously thinking about getting a Troll frame and building a year-round bike.

I was planning on building a troll before I got my Pugsley. The suspension corrected rigid fork has huge tire clearance which means you need to be a bit creative getting the fender far enough down from the crown that the stays will reach.

The frame is actually sitting at the shop, but the IGH parts I ordered never arrived. So if you have your heart set on the old orange colour you could contact Dutch Cycle in Regina. Though the current model has the triple bolt bottle cage pattern for Salsa Anything Cages on the downtube and fork arms.

(well I think its orange, we never did open the box)

Length from the crown to the top of the wheel is MUCH longer than the length of the bracket on the front fender. I'm looking for a longer bracket at the local hardware stores, but have found no luck yet. I didn't contemplate this when I purchased the fenders. Rear works fine.

EDIT: or, what gecho said. Sorry for the duplication.

They should put bottle cage bosses on the forks of more bikes. I finally have a place to put my pump, on this bike at least.

My fix for this has been to take an extra rack strut like this... http://www.topeak.com/products/Racks...mtgbracketarms and cut off right through the rib. This gives you an approximately 3" long section. We have a whole drawer of spare struts at the shop. Use a short bolt and nylok nut to connect it to the existing mount.

Is that a home made splatter guard? It looks much longer than the PDW deflector.

evolution of my primary road/dirt road touring rig:

winter touring by mmeiser2, on Flickr

to:


New UL touring and bikepacking rig by mmeiser2, on Flickr

I just completed this rig and decided to break it in by riding from the Toledo area 190 miles down to the 10th annual Gravel Grouser classic in Athens, OH. It is monsterous fun in the hills and as set up can handle 99% of roads in america, paved, and unpaved so I have freedom to roam anywhere regardless of the quality or type of roads. Even some light trail use.

Most pleasing feature. Actually fit 40mm WTB happy medium tires which means it will rock and roll with my 38mm studded shwalbes when it comes to it next winter. Make no mistake though I will be rocking this on 23mm tires all summer long on ohios perfectly paved backroads.

specs:
Trek Cronus Ultimate carbon frame
Whiskey carbon wheels / DT 240hubs
Ultegra 34x50crank and front der
Shimano 105shifter
XT rear derailleur
Sram 12x32 cassette
Bontrager race lite handlebar, RXL stem, carbon seatpost
Time ATAC pedals
WTB Happy medium 40mm tires
AVID shortybrakes

a lot more shots, mostly winter are posted here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/ultrali...iser2/?view=md

We've had a really long winter here in Minnesota, of course I don't think we're alone. Here's my winter ride and it's been great.

The bike is a Dynamic Runabout 7. I have it equipped with Hakkapeliitta A10 studded winter tires (and Bar Mitts for my handlebars). Here are a couple of photos from today, riding in Springfield, IL after last night's 18 inches of wet snow.
