    Nice!

    I've got a set of Soma Sparrow bars under the tree that I'm going to put on my '89 Rockhopper. I'm hoping for a hand position similar to what you've got here. I've got drop bars on it now, but I got an itch to play with its personality a bit.

    The Titec bars are pretty comfortable. They feel like a cross between porteur bars and MTB bars (with lots of sweep).

    Here's the latest version of my daily commuter which is fully-loaded with "Friday Gear*", sorry about the pic quality...



    *Friday Gear = a full weeks worth of work clothes headed for the laundry; could also be called Stinky Gear! lol

    It's a spoke card given out to all the people who rode to a "Texas Independence Day" party earlier this year. Several of my friends will do spoke cards for celebrations like that. The rest of the cards I've collected are on my FG bike.

    I'm digging that stem on the Raleigh...anyone know where I can get one like it? Much cleaner than a stack of spacers. Velo Orange only had silver with a negative rise.

    Haha that's great, Reddit always ruins everything for me, in that I know things before everyone else does.

    Yes indeed. I just narrowed down the model year to a 1974 or 1975 Nishiki International

    That's a great looking bike. Those graphics work really well together.

    Did you build it from a bare frame?

    Looks closer to 1980 to me. The script on the downtube is more like the 80s models.

    Yeah, I really like the graphics on that frame, too. Cool touches.

    I like the way that looks, but then I like the faux retro thing of a lot of the twin 6 jerseys/stuff, so that's not a surprise. I looked hard at that frame, but decided that since I'm not in the market for a new bike I couldn't justify it. Nice build.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Thanks for the kinds words (everyone). Yes, I built it up from scratch. Most of the parts I moved over from another frameset that I sold. Had a lot of fun sprinkling in some red accents to tart it up. Ride is smooth as silk.
