    That's nice. You should line up a supplier and sell those.

    The lights look good, but you need some more reflective elements too.

    A PSV! Damn.
    It's been a while since I was fluent with the old Peugeot porn - er - catalogs, but whenever I see that Peugeot orange (or the green) on a pearlescent paintjob, it warms my heart.

    Really nice bike.

    After 3 years of off and on bike commuting on a Redline Monocog 29er I purchased my first road bike

    2011 SE Racing draft lite Singlespeed, got here brand new for 200$



    It's a pleasure to ride, feels like a big bmx bike! Before anyone comments, I realize my seat is low, I know this and have no intentions of raising it. After 20 years on a bmx bike I almost never sit down!

    That red on black looks really nice. Oh, and what happened to the front brake, Mr. BMX?

    I had SE Draft once as a commuter, 2008 I think, the frame was actually made by Fuji. The ride was smooth, it was a steel frame, but it had lots of problems with wheels and drivetrain: cheap, weak parts. I ended up replacing pretty much everything on that bike, about $400 worth. Then I sold it as I never warmed up to the SS thing.

    Sharp looking bike!
    I'd put a brake up front, personally - the front gives you about 70% of your braking.

    What is the brand of the epoxy, I have had hobby shops and even a plastic company tell me that type of plastic will never stick to any epoxy. I want to make the PB mount and mount cellphone clip to it to hold my iPhone. I think it would work well. But I need to right epoxy.

    Also I run a PBSF and a PBSF Turbo on the back of my rack. and would like to make something more like that.

    Here is my brand "new" commuting Winter Bike. It is a rusty dark blue Raleigh Challenger, circa 198X and I like It as if it had always been mine.

    I know that spring is coming and that I will take good care of it before putting him to rest for a couple of months.
