Sometimes you just know what you want.

This bike is for snow riding.  The owner is a Surly lover with a LHT, but he knew he did not want a Pugsley.  We worked up this for him.  Surly 1×1 frameset, Mr Whirly crankset, Torsion Bar, along with the light yet massive Xpedo pedals, Brooks saddle and grips.

We handbuilt the wheels for it.  A Surly New disc hub up front and a Shimano Nexus 3 sp internal disc for the back, both laced 3 cross to 32 hole Salsa Gordo rims.  26×2.55 tires to handle snow.

This is a beautiful bike, and the component choices make it totally functional for its intended use.  It will weather crummy weather just fine, and a nice patina will only add to its luster.
