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?

One thought on “Well, excuuuuuse me…

  1. You get to Leon County-Tallahassee Fl you will fall in love with those disc brakes. I call Tallahassee traffic “playing bumper cars” especially when the legislature, is in town. But you have to like a city with 30,000+ co-eds,most of the year.
