    Can't you just eyeball that sort of thing? I haven't had to do it before, so call me crazy...

    I didn't even notice it until you pointed that out. Good eye.

    I guess since it flowed along the same line as the top tube, it just blended in and worked. Now you pointed it out, it still doesn't bug me. Weird.

    Some people do this with a huge adjustsable wrench or just by jamming an allen key in there and bending it by eye, but this is a really terrible idea. If you "ovalize" the hanger bolt hole you're ****ed. It's a lot easier to have the shop do it for a few bucks or find a bike co-op.

    The shop caught it for me the one time I bent a derailleur hanger. I went down when my chain got caught between my big ring and the f/d in an intersection and snapped a link. Not being the amateur wrench I am now, I got it together at the curb and limped home, then took it to the shop.

    Now all of my bikes are either SS or have replaceable hangers.

    DVC45: That's a big seat post rack/bag thing you have. Doesn't it put lateral stress on the seat post or the seat tube? Nice bike, btw.

    Maybe, but my seat post is aluminum, if that matters.
    I only put extra coat, tire repair kit and lunch in there. Nothing heavy.

    Thanks!

    The forum is not allowing username thread search (or maybe it's just me).
    Anyway, the only thing I was disappointed of, is the frame won't take 700x35 tires with fenders on. But, yes, the build was problem free. Everything fell in place. I was able to use most parts I have laying around to good use. The dynamo hub and Planet Bike Blaze headlight is nice thing to have and the disc brake in front is awesome for stopping. I'm really happy with this build.

    I will eventually convert it to full disc brakes, but only if I find a great deal for one.

    If you square off the support it will have more strength then if you were to leave it rounded. At least that has been my experience.

    Like the bell BTW.

    I've already been using her to go everywhere on my daily routine, including commuting to work. Originally built her to be my all around, all weather, on road/off road riding machine. She's turning out to be my "go anywhere, anytime" riding machine. Hardly use any of my motored vehicles to go around town anymore... I just love to ride my Gunnar wherever I go.

    Nice.
    You also have the option of throwing a rack & panniers on there if desired or needed (groceries, winter commuting depending on where you live, etc).

    Cool ride!

    Here is the latest configuration of my Salsa Fargo. Went on an 80 mile gravel road ride last Saturday with the setup pictured. I think I actually prefer this setup more than my full fenders and slicks.
