Instigator ++ Update

Slowly getting somewhere with the stupid Surly Instigator plus plus build. The dropper post is served and working.

Stay passionate 

This was supposed to be a status shared on B.L.i.S.L Facebook page but when I started writing about the link i realized i had to write more than just a status update.

Roamer update #3 The arrival

Today at noon the long awaited box from BTR-Fabrications landed at work. It´s been a long wait, but well worth it. Un-boxing a new bike/frame is like Christmas for bike geeks, you know the feeling.

We´re finally getting  temperatures below freezing during the nights to remind us whats coming. The days are getting shorter but nothing beats the clear crispy autumn air.
