This bike is the reincarnation (continuation?) of the Surly Ogre we have posted earlier in the gallery. Mr. Orge was unfortunately stolen after getting a mountain bike makeover with Shimano XT 1x10 setup. The Ogre was stolen the night of the makeover!! Unbelievable but true, however we had this beautiful Disc Trucker sitting in our shop, a frame that we mistakenly ordered for one of our employees.
It turns out that the rider likes 56cm bikes and had plans to build a new touring bike anyway since his Orge lost it's touring persona and became a mountain bike. I guess the theft pushed the plans forward? Either way, this bike was created and it has a really nice spec.
Notably, we are using the TRP HY/RD disc brakes which is our first experience with them and so far are impressed. Some of the other new tech we are using is the Shimano Alfine dynamo to the new (tiny!) Busch and Muller Lumotec Eyc T Senso Plus. It puts out the same power as it's bigger brother, but less in size!! Very nice piece. We also picked up a pair of the Velocity Blunt SS rims, new for 2015, and installed 28c Gatorskins. They look so good! This bike is otherwise running a full SRAM Rival 10sp group with a Salsa rear rack and Racktime TopIt front rack.
