We built this surly for Bleddyn a couple of months before opening the shop. Its already well used and looking nice and ratty.

We used his old wheels, Hope pro 2 to Hplus Archetype
His old cranks off his fixed gear, Raceface Decadence with a wide narrow 44T chainring.
His old seatpost and brooks saddle.
We sourced a old 25.4 thomson stem off ebay and used a xlt touring bar for a comfy bar position with odi lock on grips.
Tyres are our favourite tan wall 35c Panaracer Pasela and sks mudgaurds.
Avid V-brakes with Kool Stop Salmon pads.
Xpedo pedals.

Favourite part is the drive setup.
11-36 cassette with a Shimano Zee clutch mech and XT shifter. It gives you enough range for commuting and is lighter and looks cleaner than running a front mech or chainguide.
