don't have any pictures handy, but its a 2000 dodge dakota that I bought as a roll over, put in a corvette drivetrain (motor and trans) and a ford explorer 8.8 inch disk rear. here are a few short vids of it, many moons ago:
My dad and I built it, roof was caved in, no pick up bed post crash, good times
Still my DD, gets obscenely bad mileage but its 440 horse so its fun
1996 Lemond Zurich, maybe my favorite steel road frame of all time. Thinking of buying a cross bike soon, I just moved next to a long gravely levee top trail that is just aching for long rides. For the Surly with the flats: New Orleans, due to the tourist drinking/smashing bottles/wrecking cars into unmovable objects problem, also has a big broken glass/flat tire problem. My last daily rider had wider stays than the Lemond and could fit Continental Top Contact 28s. Two years of daily commute and zero flats, and they roll pretty darn fast. The Conti GT4000s I ride now are a little faster, but that first time I got glass in a tire it was like I had forgotten how to change a tire it had been so long.
i love the feel of my cross check. super comfy, not really aggressive riding position. i feel like i can go forever. i do need a better bike seat..i am liking thinner saddles these days. like the selle italia on my mountain ride.
I got a selle flite in eBay for something like thirty bucks. It's really comfy.
love the fenders!! still debating if i should put them on my Surly.
Yes! I have the SKS longboards from Rivendale bike works, keep them on all year.
I love my Surly. Great feel, and it can go forever. I've risen across the country twice on it. I dd put a LHT fork on though, to give me more front rack options
