A Desert Full of Dumps

As you read this, I’m currently escaping to the desert for a while to ride around and camp and generally avoid responsibility for a couple weeks. As such, I figured that the desert would make a fine theme for this week’s Dump.

Enjoy and I’ll see you in a couple weeks!

Built this bundle of joy up just prior to a 3 day trip on the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands, UT. Built on WTB 27.5+ Scraper rims & WTB Trailblazer 27.5x2.8 tires. Fox 32 120mm 29er fork with travel reduced to 100mm. This bike is an absolute blast and quickly became my everyday trail bike at home in Park City, UT

About Sweet Beef

As Surly’s devilishly handsome Copywriter, Joel got to write his own bio. He also names things, writes the words in the Intelligencer and on our web site, and sticks his fingers in other various pieces of Surly propaganda.
