This looks awesome! I'm currently rebuilding my Straggler and was considering switching to a wide riser bar setup instead of drops, how do you rate it in comparison?

I love the switch especially with the added basket. The main reason I tired flats was to make this bike more differentiated from my Salsa.

It looks like I'll be able to squeak in fenders!

Nice- that's pretty good given Surly's spec of 42mm max

Yeah. I could probably fit a 2.0 or so if I tired.

Very nice bike! Now I'm sure that I have to get a 50cm instead of 52cm, thx!

Btw, why did you prefer to buy the Straggler instead of the Cross Check for instance?

Emory_H says:

Disc brakes, and the 650b version fits me better than the comparable 700c Cross Check.

Emory_H says:

I'm about 168cm tall not sure about the inseam. it is a 650b 50cm. Try and see if you can ride a 650b 52cm version.

Thanks! I'm a fan of blacked out bikes, and the multicam bags make it looks so mean.
