Some recent bike projects

First up is a 650B conversion on a Surly Pacer. The now famous 650x42B Hetre "Extra Leger" fits fine with fenders and Tektro 559 sidepull brakes.



Blue-accented Moonlander? You'd be foolish not to.


And here's a 2014 "Real Blew" Pugsley with Surly OD cranks, Rolling Darryl rims, matching blue rim strips and 45North Husker Du 26x4.0 tires. This bike will get 45North Dillinger studded tires when winter sets in.

A couple of excellent looking fat bikes! Very Hiawathian, indeed.

Nice looking bikes, all of them. Nicely done. I think the pacer should really be a 650b model right from surly anyways :)

You can't see it, but I even bought blue disc bolts. And I have added a blue Growler Cage since this photo also. My last piece I want (maybe) is a blue seat.

Wanted to wish you good luck with your new shop! Also I wanted to know how the low carb/sugar regime was working out for you? Always check your blog and appreciate your posts.

Im curious as to why one would convert a frame to fit the new 650B size tire. Won't the handling be adversly affected? And arent the fatter tires heavier and less responsive then the lightwight 27" tires? What did the entire bike weigh?
