    Yeah, just clamps from the hardware store. They worked pretty well, but the bike wasn't as practical as this:



    Traded the steamroller for this little guy.

    Really nice. Nice little flair with the commuter.

    Here is my Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as my urban grocery delivery and commuting assault vehicle. It is a 58 cm, with 26 inch wheels. Currently has 2.3 inch Schwalbe Big Apples, which everyone said would never work. Ha! They are portly, but they work. Also sporting the Wald baskets on the back.

    Mr Billrick:

    That LHT is both grotesque and beautiful at the same time - I LOVE IT! That looks like it could do anything for you.

    Thanks! Grotesque is a good word for that bike! Absurd but practical. It is (was*) a beast of burden. I'm sure Curt would cringe to see his water bottles on the bike. The 2.3 in Big Apples were really too much for that frame. I think the 2.0 Big Apple Lite or Ultras would have been the best compromise.

    * I have torn the bike down. Now riding a new-to-me Rivendell 650B that is just night and day better. I'll be selling the LHT, wheels, and racks soon if anyone is interested.

    Ok, haven't seen any Big Dummy love, so here goes:



    Here's my Pugsley, which lives in my office for rides at lunch. Soon to be replaced with my fixed Pacenti, I think.



    And my now gone Instigator, right before it left:



    I think it's safe to say that I like Surlys!

    I was digging through some old notes the other day and found these comments about my Pacer frame:
    Frame Weight: (62cm, no bottle bolts or seat collar): 2267g
    Fork Weight: (Uncut): 1011g

    Yikes!

    For 2011 there is a Long Haul Trucker with SS couplers but I was really hoping to see a Pacer with the SS couplers as that would make a wicked travel bike. You'd constantly be over your weight limit but at least you wouldn't have to worry about frame damage :-)

    Commute far out to the burbs, and don't want to take public transit once. Not going to replace a fork seal twice a month because of the salt, and riding up the river trails after work when it's pissing icicles at -20F and when your beard is frozen under your balaclava... it's too fun (Northern Maine yo', sweat when it's 30 out, it's in the blood).

    Tom, yup got it from Cale.


    Eddie, Caribou...just North of Presque Isle. I spent the first 4 years of my life there, and half of my family lineage goes back a long, long time in Aroostook County. My Grandfather was the last person born on the reservation in our family, and we all go back as much as possible to see my favorite Aunt, and snow..lots of it.

    Great looking pacer!
    I want a pacer but I wish I could fit just slightly bigger tires then it allows.

    How do you like it? I'm looking for a bad weather commuter/rain bike.

    That certainly is a nice looking Pacer! Is that the Misty Mountain Grey colour?

    My Pacer (up there ^^ with Zipps on it) would just fit 34mm Maxxis Raze tyres inside the Record brake calipers - there wasn't much room for mud but it was ridable. 28s were no problem at all. If you can deal with the weight of the Pacer it's a great frame and it rides really well.
