It’ll be some time until I get my paws on my new Surly ECR. Time, then, to carry on thinking about specs and where I can get it muddy in the New Year.
I can also take some inspiration from riders who’ve built up steeds from the first batch of frames.
If you are similarly ECR-afflicted, you can read about them here:
Another inspirational blog and a perfect tonic for those dark Manchester evenings… Here you’ll find an excellent, objective review of the ECR sporting a Krampus-esque paint job.
One of the first to post about the ECR in detail, read about some early impressions on the trail.
For those wondering if I’ll ever go walking again and stop posting about ruddy bikes, I hope to get out in the hills between Christmas and the New Year so there might be a post before year-end :-)
Until then, may I wish you and yours a restful festive break.
