Surly Straggler 56 (glitter dreams!)

$1200 CAD
Selling my complete (glitter dreams!) 2016 Surly Straggler 56. I purchased this bike new in November 2018 from Cap's Bike Shop in New Westminster. Shimano Tiagra 1x10 drivetrain/shifter. Avid BB7 S mechanical disc brakes. Bike is stock except for tires: Donnelly Strada USH 700x40 (fast rolling on pavement, good tread for gravel and dirt paths). Tubus Tara lowrider pannier rack and SKS Longboard fenders included. Pedals, panniers, bags, and Spurcycle bell not included. I can include the bell for $50. The bike has been maintained regularly and is in excellent condition, shifting and braking well. It needs nothing! Steerer-tube is uncut. Wheels were trued this Spring. Some small paint scuffs from commuting life and bike-touring bags. I've used this bike for commuting from Vancouver to Burnaby, as well as bike-touring the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island. It's a fun bike to ride, and handles load really well! The low-rider front pannier rack is perfect for daily items and groceries. For more information see Surly legacy site: Sizing: the Straggler frame fits relatively long, and I suggest you size down. This bike fits me (I'm just under 6'1") and I typically ride a 58cm road bike. Thanks for your interest!

Video: Velosolutions Create the 'World’s First Fully Electric Built' Trail in Switzerland
@reindeln: I used to do greenhouse gas accounting, and as you're showing, the hardest part is defining the scope/boundaries of your comparison. As an example, what would those extra 12 people be doing if they weren't building the trail? Would they be consuming more or less calories? Are they trail building instead of jogging, or instead of sitting on the couch?

How has COVID-19 Impacted Bike Retail in North America and Beyond? - Part 2
@WasatchEnduro: the law of the harvest... workers can't really reap what they have sowed when their employer lays them off at the first sign of trouble. To follow the metaphor, workers aren't sowing a crop so they can use it the following winter to feed their families. They're sowing a crop at minimum wage with poor benefits (if any) so that their corporate employer can report "inventory" and "operational efficiencies" to investors.

How has COVID-19 Impacted Bike Retail in North America and Beyond? - Part 2
@megaold: as I understand it, in BC anyway, COVID-19 isn't "just cause" for a layoff so it doesn't excuse the employer from any obligations (such as notice or severance). There's no legal advantage for the employer in laying off an employee due to COVID-19.

oh man I laughed at that. I think that's a premium subscription feature. You also have to pour champagne on your own head.

Santa Cruz Bicycles Pledges to Give $1 Million to the Trails Over the Next 3 Years
What you get when you buy a Santa Cruz: great product, great product support, great warranty... and some trail advocacy and funding to boot. When I first moved to Vancouver I learned to ride the shore on a 1st gen Nomad which was the perfect bike. A few years later I ended up on a Blur Lt (remember 26" XC bikes?), and now I'm stoked on my Hightower.

7 of the Best Mountain Bike Lights Ridden & Rated
@MartyFluxMcFly: it's a question I used to ask until my uncle's cheap light caught fire while charging on his work bench! It was a few years ago so I don't remember the model details, but I do remember the photos of the charred remains. Luckily fire didn't spread!
