Hey Grady! Glad to see the Canti rack from my last SUV bike still in use.
Nice to see you!

I have a Swift Ozette bag that usually comes along for the ride.

Fits on the Bilenky and the Weigle.

BTW Love your Pack Rat. What a versatile ride.

A Surly is never the talk of the Paceline, but I sure like this thing. The geo is great, lots of bosses, steel feels great, and I love the 650b wheelsize. I had that all city space horse for a while and felt the 700x32 tires were heavy and annoying. I got toe overlap pretty often. If this one sticks maybe someday I’ll do a custom like it, but I like not worrying about damaging it.

We took the whole family for a 40 mile round trip bike camping trip last month. I was very impressed with how well my 11 and 12 year olds did. The 6 year old and 2 year old rode in trailers. My wife was a trooper too.

Love this bike, rock on!

Thanks for bringing that bar bag to my attention, I've been thinking of getting one for my Jones bike.

Personal preference for me but I would be rocking Paul Thumbies in a heartbeat over those DT shifters, just for ease of access.

I do have a set of campy Paul Thumbies in my reserve pile. I just love the simplicity and housing-freedom of the dt shifter.

One downside that bugs me - I can’t do a standard half frame pack. I’m planning a Broadfork custom half frame that tapers to the front. Also planning an Oveja Negra seat pack for next year.
