Bike (Mk I)

She was quite some time in the specification but from the following components I’ve assembled what I think is a really solid bike for the type of touring that I’m going to be doing.  I’ll look to add some notes/reviews once I’ve put it all through the wringer a bit more!

Frame & Fork: Surly Ogre (XL/22″, Tanish Gray)
Chainset: Middleburn RS8 X-Type Rohloff (Black), 36T Chainring (Hardcoat)
Bottom Bracket: Hope Ceramic External
Rims: Velocity Cliffhanger 700C 36-hole, Black, NMSW
Spokes: DT Swiss
Front Hub: Schmidt SON 28 36-hole Disc
Rear Hub/Gears: Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 (TS OEM2 DB EX 36h Black)
Tyres: Schwalbe Marathon Mondial, 50-622 (28 x 2.00)
Great tyres but a little on the narrow side.  Would go with the soon-to-be-released Surly Extraterrestrials (2.5″) for a similar future trip.  Would go tubeless too.
Brakes: TRP Spyke Disc Brakes
Nice brakes and easy to adjust (individual pad adjustment is much better than BB7).
Brake Levers: Shimano Deore Lever Set
Brake Cables: Jagwire Mountain Pro (Ripcord)
Front Brake Disc: EBC 180mm Rotor
Rear Brake Disc: Rohloff 8281 (160mm) 4-bolt Rotor
Headset: Hope Threadless Headset
Stem: Thomson Elite X4 MTB (Black, 90mm, 31.8mm, 1.1/8″, 10 Degrees)
Handlebars: Jones Loop H-Bar (710mm, Black)
Love these bars – give several options for hand positions.
Bar Tape: Ritchey Classic (Brown)
Grips: Ergon GC1 Rohloff/Nexus BioKork
Seat Post: Thomson Elite InLine (Black, 330mm, 27.2mm)
Saddle: Brooks B17 Standard (Brown)
Chain Tensioner: Surly Tuggnut
Power Convertor: Cinq-5 Plug III
Nice design and works reasonably well but only 1A output, so I’d prob go with an Igaro D1 for next time, which is much more efficient and 3A output. Makes a big difference for charging at slower speeds (on dirt roads).
Pedals: Hope F20
Great large platform and decent size pins provide excellent grip.
Fork Cages: 2 x Salsa Anything Cage HD
Rear Rack: Tubus Logo
Down-Tube Bottle Cage: Velo Orange Mojave
Seatpost Fuel Bottle Cage: Lezyne Power Cage
Seatpost Clamps: KCNC Bottle Cage Mounts
Fuel Bottle Cage Offset Adapter: Shimano SM-BA01 Di2 Battery Adapter
