Finally finished my commuter!
 
Crossposted from the commuting forum: Thread. Isn't she pretty:

I can cruise at about 16 MPH on the flats, and had it up to 38 MPH :eek: earlier today on a long downhill stretch. I expect I'll be able to cruise at 18 MPH as my fitness improves, though the top speed will probably decrease slightly as my weight drops (I'm at about 245 lbs. right now).

+1 Pretty ride. Don't like those seatpost racks, though.

Very nice, but I gotta agree with the suggestions to drop the seatpost rack.

Looks great, but I agree on the rear rack. Seatpost racks work better on bikes with sloping top tubes as they ride lower below the seat. You can see the double eyelets on the rear dropout, so a rear rack would be easy to add. I think if you lengthen the adjustable strut on the front fender it would bring the front down for better aerodynamics.
