I was gonna go with the Jamis Renegade for the ultimate adventure bike, until I realized it doesn't have rack mounts - bummer. So the Surly Troll is just the adventure bike I'd want! I could carry all my adventure and survival gear without breaking my back (like I would've had to without a rear rack). Obviously you have to pick the bike that will keep you going strong during the zombie/nuclear apocalypse or whatever goes down. With a solid steel frame, disc brakes and 26" tires, the Troll will keep me rolling over any obstacles. The lightweight Tubus rack will carry everything I put into my Bike-Tourer rear panniers (food, extra clothes, machete etc.).
