Well, excuuuuuse me…

Wheel full 70pxI make a mistake every so often- once a year maybe?  I’m guessing, but…

…I’ve definitely been wrong about my bike.


Wheel full 70pxFor weeks I’ve been telling everyone that I have a Surly Long-Haul Trucker.  Well, as Ron Ziegler used to say, “That statement is inoperative.”  I don’t have a Surly Long-Haul Trucker.

Wheel full 70pxIt was the paint that tipped me off.  That, and the fact that my bike is clearly labeled “Disc Trucker” on the top tube.

Apparently a Surly Disc Trucker [linkie] is a Surly Long-Haul Trucker set up uniquely for the installation of disc brakes.  So I have a Surly Disc Trucker.

Who knew?

A Program Note

Wheel full 70pxSeveral commenters have been misled by the way WordPress handles first time comments into thinking that what they have written has gone missing because nothing happens when they hit the “post” button.  Fear not- that’s not a bug, that’s a feature.  I’ll explain.

Wheel full 70pxThe first time a reader comments on b2b that comment goes off into a queue for me to approve. This isn’t because I want to pick and choose who gets to play here- it’s to stop spamming.


Wheel full 70pxYou know, you’ve seen them.

“I’ve started making $37,264 an hour from home doing just this one small thing…”


“This one simple trick eliminates belly fat in just six weeks…”

Wheel full 70pxSo I need to approve every first comment by a reader.  After that, you’re good to go.  Sometimes it just takes me a while to spot a comment needing approval.  It’s a dirty job, but- trust me- someone’s got to do it.

Wheel full 70pxAs always, thanks so much for stopping by.
