It's hard to see where the grit ends and the bike begins. 

Just when I thought a Surly frame couldn't get any grittier, I can across this 1x1 with a custom black splatter pattern ideal for the muddy winter streets. Needless to say love this paint job.

Long legs and short body. Problem easily solved. Biggie Smalls (?) adding a bit of colour and flare to the ensemble.

Someone more knowledgeable will know if this is the way it came out of the factory ( besides the Brookes saddle and the rack), yet even if it is, it still feels bespoke.  I just can't get enough of those  cut outs in the brake levers.
