A replacement for my stolen Long Haul Trucker. Purchased in April, hit by a car in July. Repaired and reserved for off road riding and touring.

This is a stock Surly Disc Trucker 54 cm, with 26" wheels. The only custom part is the Soma Junebug off-road drop handlebar.

In this picture I'm using a Revelate Designs Harness in the front and my Arkel XM-45 panniers in the rear. 

I rode this bike, in this configuration, from Corvallis to the coast twice in 2014. The first ride in March was mostly on paved roads with just a short section of gravel. The second ride in September was mostly gravel.

Carbon Fiber frame, Ultegra 10 speed. This bike is in the "Plush Road" category. I got more miles on this bike then any other I've owned. Lot's of centuries, the Ridaho tour, and just everyday riding.

This was the second new bike I purchased. My previous bike was a no suspension Specialized Hard Rock. This one at least has a front shock. This bike really got me started on longer and longer rides. Many great trail rides on this bike. Also a serious tour through the Colorado Rockies, Sold May 2014
