My poor Surly Pacer - after taking me on such great tours of this beautiful state of ours and countless miles and smiles, I put it on the eBay chopping block. 28 WATCHERS! But no winners.
I also put it on Craigslist, not once... but TWICE, and still no chomps - so something had to be done. I took all the parts off my beaterbike and transferred them over. I converted the triple crankset to a single-speed (42T) and tightened everything up with a Surly Singulator. Threw on some wide 46cm Easton bars wrapped in Soma Thick and Zesty bar tape, cheap Tektro brake levers, added some red carbon fiber headset spacers and used what I had laying around in the garage to complete it.
Personally I think it was a beautiful save and turned out to be a nice looking SS tourer. I might even take this thing on the Tour De Cure.
