Custom Bike for a Big Clyde!

I finally picked up my new custom touring bike. I have posted some pictures and the (hopefully) Clyde proof part list, in the Touring Forum.

Sorry I guess I was trying to save some server space. Her is a picture and the parts list, I really did a great deal of research on the components, for Clyde stuff. The unknows are the rims. I have always rode Sun Ryno Lites, and was looking for something a little smaller (width) The Ambrosios and not well known in North America but look very strong and are fairly cheap.

Frame Custom Steel
Wheels Ambrosio Keba, XT Hubs, DT Swiss spokes 36 hole, 3 cross. Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tires.
RaceFace Turbine Cranks
RaceFace Diablous Headset.
Nitto Noodle Bars 48 cm (these things are huge)
Thompson Stem
Thudbuster seat post. (Double purple elostomers)
B.B. Phil Wood
Avid Arch Rival “V” brakes
Diacomp Levers.
Shimano Bar End Shifters.
Shimanoe XTR Front and LX rear derailleurs.

That's awesome! I've been waiting for pics of your bike. I remember we have the similar odd geometry issue (tall with short inseam). You'll have some happy travels on that beauty.

I've never seen one of those seatposts before. I'm assuming it acts like a shock absorber. Does it squish any when you pedal?

When and where is the first trip?
