Finished Fuji, photos!

Hey,

You helped me build it, so I figure you deserve to see the final product. I finished it today, and took it out for it's first ride, then took pictures, as this is the cleanest it'll ever be...












that is all. for the full set see: http://picasaweb.google.com/michenka/HansFuji

That's a nice looking bike - very nice.

I have the Noodles on 2 bikes. I love them for their "flat top" and traditional curve. And I don't mind the slight setback.

Thats a great bike, tastefully done! The yellow tires look fantastic. How do you like that saddle?

the saddle is actually not terribly comfortable. it's not broken in yet, so the verdict is still out.

Wow! Nice. A lot of different things to like there.

Are those new old-style brake pads? How do they work? (I know how brakes work - I mean, how well do they work?)

the brake pads are new old stock, they don't grab as well as new pads, but they stop me in time none the less.
