Surly Instigator 2

Ever since i had my On-one 456 I've had a soft spot for steel all mountain hard tails. When sold it to buy a full suspension Specialized I've kind of missed it. I dont know why i have this weakness for these kind of mountain bikes. Perhaps it is the feeling of old school Going … Continue reading Surly Instigator 2
