Post tinkering and shake-down bimble: View attachment 890375

2021 Surly ECR, bought as a frame set and built up last fall. Used it until February, and has stood since then. The great spirit took me today, so I swapped out the straight seat post for a 25 mm offset one and smack, bang sit-bones on the seat and not the tender meat.

Need to get some sort of proper handlebar bag going, the one on it now is just a placeholder I had laying about in the garage. I have a Ortlieb on the LHT, but it seems I am out of luck on getting that one to fit the ECRs handlebars of choice.

Have you checked out the Jones ones that fit in the middle of the h-bar?

I have a Revelate Designs bag on my H bars, I’m not sure which model though.

Revelate Designs Mountain Feedbags by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Revelate Designs Mountain Feedbags in-situ on my Salsa Mukluk fat bike which is set up for bikepacking. I have now swapped out the right-hand side Mountain Feedbag for a case to hold my camera when riding.

I am pondering getting two of the Surly 8pack front carriers one for the ECR and one for the LHT, and add a Restrap Rando bag to those, the large one is 17 liters and should fit everything and the kitchen sink, or all the sundries needed for a full days outing, including the large G9 kit.

I did ride this, from 2014 to some days age. But decided to sell it now because I have been thinking it is time to try something new. And also, good time to sell bikes now :)

The bicycle I am currently riding is a Salsa Journeyman. What is called a gravel bike, I think. With 650b wheels and Panaracer tubeless tires that are surprisingly nimble in spite of their girth. It's a good bicycle for the roads and paths in a rural Oregon town.

Bit more tinkering on mine. Dropped back to 170 cranks, & trying out some bars with a bit more backsweep

Horrible cellphone pix but I sometimes ride my Soma Valhallen and on this ride I discovered the trail around Barr Lake has a section that goes right next to the train track.

Most of my rides are done on my Surly Disk Trucker.

Now I have tried my new Allebike Alpha for real, what a bike! The best thing about it is that it suits me and my riding style like a glove. And the size also, I rented one early summer and tried two different sizes. That helped me decide. The Large was really spot on. Felt very natural. Stock configured it feels like every part of the bike is made for me :) actually I had ordered top spec with carbon wheels and DT240 hubs, but due to delivery problems they could only offer alu rims with DT350 hubs. I feel afterwards that it was better, like alu better, and the 350 has the old ratchet design which I really prefer. Feels really satisfied with it and how it all turned out. Sure, it costed a little but the better parts on this one was good choice so it was better crying once now than many times later. I never need to upgrade anything on this bike :) And the best thing about it, the one reason that got my interest from the beginning. Is that it is a swedish bike, the only company here in sweden that makes good MTB's nowadays. They reside only half an hour drive from home also so it feels very good in heart :) Now I have to prepare it for the race this weekend. These days was for tuning and making myself home on it. Now it is for real!

Out and about in Southern Oregon on my Salsa Journeyman, whose 650b tires happily power through gravel and dirt, although they don't do quite as well over railroad tracks.
