    It is a Selle Anatomica indeed. I have both the Anatomica and the Brooks B-17 imperial.

    My B-17 is 2000 miles broken in and the Selle is more comfortable right out of the box. Both still pretty phenomenal saddles.

    I've used a number of bikes as my "primary commuter", but currently it's my single speed. Set up as shown below, but I put a single Arkel GT-54 pannier on it.



    It's an 80s Raleigh Record converted to single-speed and 700c wheels. I still plan to put dyno-powered lights on it.

    Okay, I did NOT want to hear that. I love my B-17 Narrow, but that Selle Anatomica is dead sexy.

    Beautiful bike... you won't have any trouble finding it a new home and mebbe someone has a 54 they would like to trade.

    so far put 500 miles on this. Great ride happy for under $700 with the additions. So much more comfy than my Cdale super six for commuting, and way cheaper on wear and tare. No racks, I use a back pack.

    Nice bike. I'm wondering what fenders you are using. They look to provide very good coverage.

    SKS long board 700x32. They fit the rack braz-eons for easy fit. I did trim excess length on the wire supports. They do have good coverage that keeps me dry. So far durable

    I have picked up all our 20's for $40.00 - $100.00 and the most expensive one needed very little save for new tyres and grips while this little guy might be one of the most heavily modified 20's out there and there's a little more to do before I strip the bike down and powder coat the frame.

    This has been a labour of love that borders on obsession... I could have bought a new Dahon but then I would just have a new Dahon (no offense to new Dahon owners).

    Figure that with the new wheels and some new Marathons (installed last night) I have wheels that are worth as much as many entry level bikes and if I was not able to do the wheel and frame work (there has been lots) myself, this would have been a pretty expensive project.

    both racks are Surly Nice Racks. I'm glad the back they're both sturdy but the front one is kind of unnecessarily clunky. I like it, though. I use Scotchlite reflective tape on the stays, too. works great.

    I'd like to know more about the shifter.
    Seems to be a fair bit more within my price range that bar-ends.

    Was busy this weekend and built up this single speed "backup" bike, though I'll probably use it to fart around with the girlfriend also. It was a crappy magna frame I had laying around, went to the local co-op and spent 20 bucks and built her up, I do need to get a different seat but other than that it rides pretty good.

    25 pounds... frame is < 5 pounds which is rather light for a double bar steel frame that was made 60 years ago.

    For comparison my 531 framed fixed gear road bike and vintage geared road bike weigh 21 pounds and everything on them is alloy while the CCM still rocks it's original crank which might weigh as much as the frame.

    Thanks.

    It is just an old 1951 CCM that I found as a frame and built up... am seriously thinking of replicating the design using better steel and modern parts since so many folks seem to like the old jalopy.
