Got into San Francisco today and headed straight over to Bay Area Bikes in Oakland, where Clay and Glenda met me with a brand new Surly Long Haul Trucker. The bike looks great! And after a bit of tuning and gearing up we all went for the first ride to drop me off at the Bart. Great to finally meet Clay and see the shop, which was way bigger than expected.
