    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.

    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?
