    Chad......Nice......What is the top end (cruising speed) and is it new vintage? I'm also interested in PSI of tires, becuase my dad had a Western Flyer beach cruiser and only aloud 35 psi. Bike was sloooooooow.

    Enjoy!

    Yeah, it's modern "vintage". Schwinn 7-speed, something like 44/14-26-ish. It's not real quick, but I make my urban assault commute in 45 minutes or so - six miles with several really long lights across 4-6 lane roads. The current tires are 40 PSI. Actually, it cruises OK. I'm not in a hurry. I got the bike from my brother's widow - it was chained up outside his apartment. I've commuted in the past on road bikes and MTBs. My MTB kept being "borrowed" by my now 19 y.o. as he kept trashing his bikes!! Anyway, it gets the job done - not quickly but in style!! I also ride a motorcycle so convincing She Who Must Be Obeyed (SHMBO) that I need a different bicycle is not happening until after the bathroom remodel!

    Here is my trusty Trek back in the rotation as a winter bike. I have my homemade studded tires on it and I am planning on riding it to work tomorrow. I like to call it the Snow Patrol bike. I took it out the day we got a bunch of snow here. It did ok except the thick layers of slush from the wet snow was too much for it. I didn't put it together with that in mind though. It should keep me upright when I go over the patches that aren't cleared off on my ride which was what it was intended to do.

    The Norco finally got to see some winter... and I was up for my usual 20km loop to the co-op on Saturday as I have been riding less to let the buggered ankle heal up.

    Oddly enough, the riding is much less painful than standing and walking as long as I take it easy.

    Looks like you have gotten a good deal of snow... it feels more like spring here which makes riding the most treacherous as when you least expect it you might find yourself riding across serious patches of ice.

    Find that with the studs the ice is not as much of a pain as the deep slush on the uncleared roads.

    I like your bike. Is that the topeak explorer rack with trunk bag? I've been trying to find a good rear blinkie light for mine. Which one do you use? Looks like a nice big light.

    That bike is insane, very cool kingfish! Do you have any more photos of it or a build thread somewhere?

    Looks like the Planet Bike Super Blinky. The Portland Design Works Radbot 1000 has a similar super-strong flashy LED, but instead of the other weaker backup LEDs has an integrated Euro reflector. Get either depending on your preference...they're both fantastic.

    Thanks and yes, that's the Topeak rack & bag. As reducedfatoreo mentioned the light is the planet bike super blinky. It's pretty bright and the blink mode is very noticeable.

    But the light is outdated, an older model. It is a Planet Bike Superflash 1/2 watt. They have a new one called the Superflash Turbo that has a 1 watt LED that is (for the price) awesome. Get the Turbo if you're gonna go Superflash!

    new upgrades on my sirrus

    i already posted some pics awhile ago but figured i would add some with the new upgrades which are. a pair of specialized infinity flak jacket 700x35c tires, a 50.00$ craigslist bob trailer (gotta love the c-list), a cateye reflex taillight on the rear of my rack, a greenfield kickstand which is really handy, a specialized phenom expert saddle,and a titec h-bar with bar tape/and ergon grips very comfy works great so far but i have only used it once since it was all done. hope to get some more miles on it asap but have been to busy riding my mountain bike lately.

    05kas05, those bars look like the wings on a 767! So wide. Nice upgrades, though.

    its funny you should say that when i was doing my search on these and the jones loop h-bar i thought the same thing.i wanted the jones loop h-bar first but i didnt want to spend 120.00 on something i might not like so i found the titec version for 48.00 shipped on pricepoint. it definitly looks wide but at the widest point grip end to grip end it only measures 27" so although the shape is different and it looks wide it is no wider than a regular mountain bike bar. the bars on my camber comp measure the same width. so far they seem to be a great upgrade. i will give a better update once i get some more miles on them.
