Captain America called. He wants his bike back and he’s PISSED that you loaned it to Doctor F-ing Who. And how’d it get to Beijing anyways?
In Iowa - even the track bikes are gravel bikes...
As seen in Chicago.
In Paris - you match the bike lock color to the bike. If you are going to go this white, might as well. Approved.
That is one hell of a rear wheel. In Nottingham, UK, home of Raleigh bikes.
My very own Travelers Check. Wanted one of these for awhile, and finding one used made it a reality. Silver powdercoat from Anthony Peterson. Small mod to the frame from Eric Noren. Lots of used parts from the Twin Cities community. Favorite part - building up the new wheels around Surly hubs and some slick red Velocity A23s. Lust.
Love the white rubber. Minneapolis.
Orange with white color block. A classic scheme since the X0-1. Here we have an urban rambler for when the weeds rise up and take over the pavement. Or the best bandit-cross ride ever. Seen in Minneapolis.
Seen at IKEA. Could be sold at IKEA. Integrated lights on the top tube = nerd-hawt.
Locking them right in NYC. Now if someone could just steal those offensive bullhorns.
If a BMX and Fixie bike had a baby... NYC
Seen at the Dickie Scramble, then photographed at the Almanzo. Michelle with her Pink'ed Cross Check. Meticulous detail right down to pink anodized spoke nipples. This is what fabulous attention to detail looks like on one of the best Surly builds I've seen.
A custom powder-coated and very rare Surly Traveler's Check frame with orange Chris King bits. Attention to detail folks, with just enough post-apocalypse grit. Normally camo is a no-no, but when paired with the tactical headlight and roll anywhere Knards, this is a killer ride. Note the raised Surly 'S' on the crown fork. Like I said, details...
Look closely and you'll see the S and S couplers on the frame which let you pull the frame apart in half for shipping. I've seriously wanted this frame to create a take-traveling ride - London, NYC, San Fran... Truly one of a kind build I was fortunate to spot.
Fatties Fit Fine. Not the rider - I'm sure this is a slender commuter given the dedication to winter riding. I'm talking about Surly bike's slogan denoting frame geometries that will support a two-inch wide studded mountain bike tire on a touring bike.
This has always been a favorite color (even though it is non-compliant), ever since the first Surly I was interested in was bought out from under me by a guy who was planning to install a gas motor on the sturdy steel frame. Blasphemy (though I applaud his make-r attitude).
This bike looks like it could survive the walking dead. Seen in Leadville, CO.
Blues on blues on blue, with the white to make it all pop. I'm a sucker for Oury grips - just the right amount of flare to avoid matchy-matchy.
Matte black... deep V's... But what is UP with the fully gripped bar? If you are going to use a stubby bar, at least have the decency to go minimal on the grips. Crochet would look better.
Matching grips, offset nipples... well done sir!
No filters or post-production tweaks here. Just the redest chain I've ever seen. Color: approved!
