Anyone else feel "SURLY"?

How many Surly owners do we have? I only own one and it's a Long Haul Trucker 62cm frame in sage green AKA olive drab with a tubus cargo rear rack. I must admit It's the least expensive of my bikes, but theirs just somthing magical about this one.

Just bought a new Raleigh this past year, so it will be awhile before I can convince my hubby that I "need" another bike (I have 3), but I would love for my next one to be a Long Haul Trucker.

Ahhhh, the bike want? need? continuum! See, you don't even need to "cross a line" from one to the other. If you want it, you need it (at some level). :)

But, uh, better start the flux capacitor to resolve the space/finance issues. :cry:

I've got some snowcat rims coming. I know they are not Large Marge, but they need to fit into a MTB frame!

I'll post pics when I've got something to show!

We have recently just sold 4 Pugsleys at the shop. I got to see one of the Black Ops models today.. It was pretty sweet.

I've got a ~2000 Crosscheck. I really like the wider CX rims/tires for our rough chipseal roads, but these days it probably does more miles on rollers in the house than outside... if the weather's nice, I'm usually riding dirt.
