    love the flat bar on your 1220. I bought some fenders for my 1220 from LBS, front went on ok, but the rear didn't work due to the brake bridge being round. Have to come up with another way for a rear fender mount.

    Elad, Thanks for the comments on the flat bar set. I used a Zoom stem converter. I mention the Michelin 28 series tires because anything bigger would rub on the brake bridge. The do make the ride a little more plush without slowing it down too much.

    Which FCR is this? The new 3? Cool color scheme.

    Thanks! Just might have to order one for my Nuvi...

    I'm thinking a plastic bag over the whole thing would be a good idea too. I wouldn't think the Nuvi would like getting wet.

    Depends on the model. The Nuvi 500's are rated "IPX7 waterproofing withstands accidental submersion to 1m for 30 min." They are fine in the rain. I have my old GPSV in the weather all the time but I'm warming up to the the Nuvi and may upgrade soon.

    Hi,

    May I know more about the installation of your road shifters with the mechanical disc brake system? What is the feel like?
    Call me crazy or what, been trying to install road parts on a mtb frame. I have a set of shimano 2200 shifters, but i been told that it will be tough to work that with a v-brake system. Anyone can shed some light on this issue? haha.

    Thanks!!

    Cheers,
    Joel

    Thanks.

    Since some time ago I didn't have much time to spend on this bike so I just converted it into a "commuter" bike so I can ride it more.


    But soon I will be moving and I really wondered if it could handle some light snow over the new place

    A few pics of my newly finished single speed winter commuter. Was originally an 80's Raleigh 531 race bike.

    Lots of lights for the dark ride home!!!

    Ride perfectly...

    I'd like to see more & better pics of your LHT. It looks fully tricked out! (or would that be 'trucked out'? )

    They're Avid BB7 road disc brakes. I have the same setup on my '06 Schwinn DBX. They work just fine with regular road shifters.

    Hydraulic discs have a better feel, but these are still quite good, and stop just as well as conventional brakes. Big bonus for working in all conditions -- my DBX is my bad-weather bike. I still have the cyclocross levers on mine, too.

    marcryan27, that's a hot-looking Dahon. The matte finish and black wheels look really good.

    What he said. Works like a charm. I almost bought the '06, but I liked a few features of the '05 model better, not to mention it was drastically reduced when I bought it. If I'd known how many parts I would have had to upgrade before I was happy with it, though, I'd have saved up for something a little nicer like the Trek Portland. It was actually somewhat of an impulse purchase after months of research.

    I've got the '07. They finally got it right and then discontinued it. Go figure. I think I got the last one from performance. The only things I've added are cages, pump, lights, and rack. Came with full fenders. In '06 they moved the rear caliper to the other side of the seat stay to make the rear "rack friendly".

    That a Dahon? I've debated buying one, for quite some time. I have that REI rack bag, works pretty well even if you don't use the rain cover stuff stays dry...least where I live.
