    My old Trek 7500 has gotten a few upgrades in the way of new wheels... the front is a 40 spoke Sansin tandem hub laced to a Mavic MA 40 and the rear is a Deore disc hub laced to a 32 spoke Mavic MA40.

    My perfect bike just got more perfect...



    I love this hub / wheel... it is one of the smoothest hubs I have ever handled.

    It's a tandem wheel...

    The deal I got on the wheel was irresistable... I got it for less than the price of the spokes and it is lighter, smoother, and a better ride than my old front wheel / hub.

    Sansin sealed hubs are also excellent.



    When I mount up a front rack and paniers the wheel will actually be just right for the job.

    Well I knew you said it was a tandem wheel, I just didn't catch why you chose it. But if I got a great deal I'd take it too!

    handlebars

    On the old Kona, what are those handlebars? They look very comfortable. Were they easy to install? Thanks

    So many nice bikes

    Very interesting (to this newbie) thread. Shows how many different approaches there are to the commuter.

    Here's one of mine:

    Yes they were easy to install, they are Nashbar Trekking bars. I purchased them at the website for $17. My Kona Blast isn't old either. It's a 08. I have just Fredified it.

    Looks really nice, but what is it ? I can't read what the downtube says.
    People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

    Yes, the VO racks/decaleur are a nice product (and touch on the Bleriot).

    I recently created an instruction page on installation.

    I'll change out the bar wrap, put some nice fenders on it, new saddle for sure, new pedals, and within time I'll put an Xtracycle on it. Always wanted one, but I should probably get a stronger rear wheel before I do that.

    The wife is a little pissed though. It's my 3rd bike this month, 2nd this week. I find myself moving a bike to open the fridge and to open the oven. They're everywhere! I have more that aren't listed in my sig, I may have a problem.
    oooh i would love to find some 7speed sti's

    i hate wind, there is no victory over wind, only slowness and despair

    It will only hurt till the pain goes away.

    It handles great. Much better than the bike I used to have it on. A '68 Varsity with narrow drop bars. I have much more leverage over my load with the mountain bike bars. YOu can put pretty much anything you want on the front rack. I have put several bags of charcoal (like 60 pounds worth) on top for 6 miles. No flex or anything. For that kind of weight though, I have a trailer, so It usually doesn't get to haul that much weight. I either bungee my 40 pound bookbag to it, or I Put it in a milkcrate on the front or rear rack.

    Here is a better picture of the bike. My yard is a bit of a mess in the background.
