We will be gone for the Memorial Day holiday weekend Friday, May 25 thru Monday, May 28, and back to work normal hours on Tuesday. We'll miss you, and we hope you have a nice time with or without your bike!
In the meantime, here's a somewhat crummy phone-cam picture of my semi-new Surly Disc Trucker, which replaced the Troll.
Eagle-eyed readers will notice a number of unique aspects of the build. I'm very happy with the bike and planning a variety of adventures (close and not-close to home).
I've been riding the Disc Trucker for a few weeks, and a lot of people have asked me why I didn't keep the Troll, as if I know some secret bad thing about the Troll. But the reality is simply that I feel the desire and the need to keep up with new products that we sell, and that I can't afford the money or the space to have more than 3-4 bikes at once. As for the Troll, it went to one of my chums, and I'm glad for him to have it. I may get another one someday, but we'll see. Anyway, the Disc Trucker is "pretty effing rad" as the kids say. The handling and ruggedness are perfect. It doesn't fit the monster rubber like the Troll, but it's ok with 26x2.1" tires.
