Nice bike mate. I love Surly's Old Skool mentality to bike building. They've a lovely retro feel to them both building and riding.

Yeah resisting the lure of coloured ano, black is the new black dontyouknow! Got a xt rear for this and some syncros bars with a wee bit of rise. Do agree has a real retro look the surlys.
