Bike Checks from Blue Lug Hatagaya
*Surly Disc Trucker*
The bike is pretty much my ideal Gravel road bike, Surly Disc trucker with 650B. The bigger air volume of the 650B allows for lower tire pressure and this one has the same diameter as the most 700c tires so rolling on pavement isn’t bad at all.
The crankset is White Industries, which is compatible with 11speed.
The tapered spacer is the Blue Lug original brass spacer. This bike can cover a lot of situations. It can be like an everyday useful bike to the weekend go-to touring bike.
Yane works for our cafe, Lug Hatagaya. The guy is her husband. He is a firefighter. She gave this very nice bike to him.
As I work for a bike shop, I can swear Surly Cross Check is one of the greatest bikes of all time. This can be a fast road bike with thin tires, or a touring bike with a bike rack, or even gravel bike with thick tires. I hope they enjoy riding bikes together and make a lot of memories.
This is a single-speed bike, so that the track bike parts can be installed, which is great. The Philwood hub is one of the best track hubs. It is beautiful and high durability. The front rack is Pass And Stow with a custom spray paint. This is a beautiful commuter bike.
We carry a lot of kinds of bikes like these. Please come to our shop and tell us your ideal bike, we’ll be there to help you!
