smsimpson83 joins the LHT MAFIA

Hey Everyone,

I know I have posted about it but it is now finally mine, an owner of a 60cm Olive Green LHT Complete. Even on the test ride I got a compliment about how sweet of a bike it was from a random stranger on the street. It felt like a glove. Thanks to an extra addition of a Blackburn XR-1

on the rear with a Sunlite Toploader 2 Trunk Bag

with integrated Panniers from my lovely wife as a Birthday present (8-2-83) (on top of the bike which was our 1 year anniversary (7-28-07) present. I have just today also added a Cateye HL-EL135

and a Cateye TL-LD610


For those also interested my wife ended up going with a Trek 7.2 FX (non WSD) it fit her like she wanted it too, and she got all excited and told me it was the one.... so we went with it. She likes her bike as well, and We have already gotten her the same lights that are on my bike. she also wants a rack and basket type set-up which we are gonna do next month sometime.

Thanks for all the advice and words of encouragement. I hope to take picture of my actual bike with all the accoutrement sometime tomorrow.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Remember, either a White Garage Door, or an interesting piece of background like some bushes or a cool sculpture. Dérailleur side out and cranks at 3:00 and 9:00.

Sweet, appropriate with a touring bike.
