Surly Ogre No. 2
As said before it was two Ogre bikes we build for Gaby and wife (sorry forgot your name!) for the next big tour. Gaby and his wife came the long way from Netherlands to entrust us building new adventure travel bikes for them! No suprise, the 2nd bike is pretty close to Gabys bike: Surly Ogre, Shimano XT 1×12 drivetrain, Erase MTB rear hub and SON 28 dynamo laced to Syntace alumnium rims and Jones handlebar for multiple hand position on long tours. To stay visible they got a full SON light setup and for charging USB devices we added a steerer mounted Sinewave Reactor. Surly racks front and rear make sure they can haul everything they need on tour.
