Re: Biking: beginner tips?

Benjy -- Surly doesn;t clear coat their bikes.... hence the scratches and decal rubs,... look to clear coat --- and find a shop that will put frame saver on/in it... if you are like me, riding later in the year will pick up road shit (salt, etc).... and yes, I got a great deal on that Ogre --- local...

Re: Biking: beginner tips?

31.3" standover is definitely bigger than I'd expect from a medium. That'd definitely be touching my balls. But even with a bike too big by standover standards, I'd expect I'd be able to adjust the seat so that I could ride it (it'd just be touchy when dismounting). Surly runs slightly big -- and t...

That’s a killer Ogre. Buy it and get a new chain. It might be worth having it tuned up. You think it’s worth $850 with a double hitch bike rack? - he said the rack was $650 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk In this market it’s probably worth much more than that.

That’s newer than 5-6 years old. I think that green was 3-4 year’s ago. Looks in great shape.

The size of a Surly is underneath the bottom bracket. They stamp it on the steel.

Re: Biking: beginner tips?

Ben, 26” or 29” is the wheel size. I believe all Ogres are 29”. The frame size is 20”, which is the seat tube length. That’s a size large Ogre frame. At 5’10”, you’re right between sizes. You could probably ride a medium or large happily, depending on your inseam and arm length. I’m just over 6’ an...

Re: Biking: beginner tips?

Biking is great as an exercise but I also have so much fun when doing it. It takes me back to when I was 12 or 13 and the whole summer was spent on my BMX riding with friends. I don't think you need to spend money on having the bike fitted to you, read a couple of articles and watch a youtube video...

Re: Biking: beginner tips?

That rig is set up so you are upright and the weight is on your ass. A road, MTB, or gravel bike is gonna have you leaning over more but taking weight off your ass. And keep in mind seat height --- fully extend leg on pedal downstroke and then bend that knee slightly -- that's how high your seat sho...

Re: New addition to the car family

I had the IMS bearing replaced, just for peace of mind. Good thinking. isn't that a problem child for this engine? Some say yes, some say no. There was a class action suit. Multiple aftermarket replacements are out there. I decided to spend some $ and sleep better. Proactively replacing the bearing...

Re: Bike TLC

MTB bikes are drifting to wider tires, and many, more suspension. Gravel bikes do have drop bars, but I see more going for flats. Like you said Chris, some don't like drop bars --- but drops on a gravel are slightly different. A gravel bike like the Vaya (or Fargo) has different frame geometry than ...
