New Bike!!!

Yes, I got a new bike. Yes, another one. I picked it up and took it home last night, but I had left my camera at the office, so no pictures of my own yet. I will post some soon. At present though, it's stock, so it looks just like this (from Surly's website):

Soon enough (this weekend most likely) I will begin the customization process. I like it so much as is though that I don't plan to change much. Still, there are some things I will add: a Brooks B17 saddle; Shimano dualie pedals; fenders; tubus racks (front and rear); cyclometer; lights; some kind of small handlebar bag with map case; a Carradice saddle bag. I will post some pictures of it when I can.

Also, I'll need to come up with a name for it. I think I will take a few rides, get to know it a little before I choose one. Maybe Rocinante? We shall see... I'm open to suggestions!

Thanks Lynne! Yes, definitely will be a brevet bike. Perhaps the TriCities 200k will be her debut.
