Holiday, which Brooks is that on your bike? Dyno hub on front? Or, have you posted the build details on it? Everytime I see it I zone in on some other detail about it.

edit:Trying to post a pic with the android phone so I don't get bootdd from the pic thread

edit to edit: apparently it won't work, sorry, will add one from the computer when I get a chance.

Out in the neighborhood with the wife. She rode strong for 5 miles, her best ride in a while.

I ride as a supervisor on a bus for our alternative education school and we often see Bald Eagles. Here is one I snapped on the iPhone from the bus door as we parked nearly underneath:

Thanks Tom, but he was asking about the Portage. Stumpy is basically the same as seen in those pics, plus a front wald basket and some crappy fenders.
