I rode my Surly Long Haul Trucker to work today. The bike now has fenders, front and rear rack, and a computer installed.
I picked up the bike last night and was itching to ride it today. My panniers wouldn’t easily mount on the rear rack, so I put them on the front rack. My trunk bag would block my tail light, so I also put that on the front rack. The bike did handle differently with the weight on the front, but it was still very stable.
I stayed up entirely too late last night, but was excited enough to get up and ride to work today. Now I’m looking forward to the ride home this afternoon.
I’m still trying to come up with a name for the new bike.
