Leadville: Custom Check

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.

Leadville: Khaktacular Trucker

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.
