Surly Troll from the bike shop. Everything is finished. It is a complete bike.
Schwalbe Marathon Cross tires on it. I've got fatter, more aggressive tires for actual MTB stuff. But I knew I'd want to commute on it and get in as many miles as possible for a while on the new rig.
There's plenty to share about the ride. It shifts better than ever. It brakes better than ever. It's so nice to have a bike that works properly. I'll begin to play with minor adjustments with stem, seat and whatnot now. It's worth perfecting now that I've got everything in working order.
Today's ride in felt sublime. Nice, cool weather. Heavy fog sitting on the ground. It was a great day to ride a new bike.
Get out there.
