How I use it: everyday, all the time! I don’t own a car, so my Xtra Surly goes to the grocery store, the thrift store, the community garden, the farmers market, the coffee shop, potlucks, you name it. Even Home Despot.
Make, model & other notes: I’m rollin’ on the ’07 Surly Long Haul Trucker (with 26″ wheels) with the much coveted Xtracycle attachment. Other specs of note include a pink Chris King headset, Phil Wood bottom bracket, Mavic XC 717 Cross Rims 32h 3-cross pattern and shimano bar-end shifters tuggin’ on a 9-speed. Delicious. —RJ
