Considering the amount of Paul/Chris King/Brooks/Nitto parts on this Surly frame, I'm not sure that the word "beater" would ever spring to my mind. I am always eager to understand the intricacies of the english language and would be very grateful if you could tell me what adjective would then describe my "beater" bike, fitted with a mix of old Tiagra, Shimano 600, Deore and Tourney components on a plain gauge MTB frame?
Very nice porteur bike you have here indeed.

Sweet beater. Too nice to be

Sweet beater. Too nice to be beaten!

so fresh

thats one fresh cross check. looks vintage next to mine.

nice bike.

a nice pair of mudguards / fenders would really finish it off IMO ;)

a nice pair of fenders...


Though that's some serious rubber you've got on the bike. Would fenders even fit?


this is awesome!
