This ones been a while coming. Finally finished off my new go to commuter/ all round fun ride. An 18'' Surly Ogre, mostly non stock parts amassed myself or procured through Olympia Cycle and Ski in Winnipeg, including a sweet set of Mavic TN719 29er wheels that they built up for me on XT hubs. Here's a teaser, more specs and detailed shots to follow.
O. checking that all's well with the new rig in the evening light.
Plenty of big changes afoot here at the fresh aspect headquarters. Actually we moved the headquarters a whole 5 or so blocks ESE towards the lake. So yeah, between the usual grind, family, running, bikes, moving and so on...time on the interwebs has been limited.
Young hands loving the VW.
In fact he's requested to bring the van to bed several times now....the first time referring to it as his "D Double Van"
Hmmm... a perfect summer IPA....another creation a-la Northern Brewer. 'Chinook IPA', brewed outdoors on my Colman two burner stove in March. Not crazy hopped and super tasty.
