    I didn't, although I do have the full matching set of Back Roller and Front Roller Classics. With any luck the bike will get to see the Oregon Coast in it's entirety in the Fall of 2013. But it is my everything bike. I bought it because it will do it all, I am slow and heavy so no racing aspirations which is about the only thing this bike doesn't do well.

    Here are mine, I have all three set up for commuting duty:

    Winter beater and utility bike


    Fixed gear commuter (main)


    My road bike that I now have a rear rack on so I can use it for commuting when I want to.

    thanks for the compliment on the redline.

    honestly the stock version is perfect in its own right. I can almost say its a bargain. With the 2012 10 speed Tiagra 4600 build - its a ton of bike for the MFG pricing (which will be lower at the LBS eventually). I just knew I'd eventually modify it so I decided to do it upon its initial build up with a whole new groupset/brakes.

    That single speed commuter build is beautiful in all black. A quick suggestion: since the bike is all black and used as a commuter you can buy whole sheets of super durable/industrial grade black reflective 3M tape on eBay (multiple sheets for under $10). It looks invisible on a black frame and actually is very very reflective.

    Here's my old black bike with reflective tape on the frame/rack/rims.




    It really was invisible and perfect for cable rub protection areas too. But very reflective in the dark too.

    Thank you, I was actually planning on getting some black reflective tape for it but I wasn't aware you could get it on ebay for that cheap. I plan on both putting it on the frame and rack as well as in between the spokes on the rims.

    Here's my commuter/ truck/ beast of burden:



    I've had her since she was brand new back in '86. Many component groups, h-bar/ stem combos and wheels later, and she's still going strong! Kind of 'my' version of a Rivendell type rig, but with the option to use different size wheels, thanks to Kent Ericksen and the Moots Mounts!

    It would be perfect if you'd just get some blue tires for it.

    I used some left over black Reflective sheets for my rims and new chainslap guard. I bought some orange sheets off the same seller on eBay for around $9.00. The problem is my frame's color isn't typical orange its more of a dark/reddish gold metallic orange.

    Here's the bike with lock, rear blinky, and front light. The lock was fun because you can buy new skins from kryptonite - so I bought the red colored skin to match the bike better. I put black reflective tape on the rims and as a new chainslap guard.





    with flash you can really see how the black reflective tape turns really white/reflective.

    Yup, I love it. I see you made a few of the same changes I made (different bars I think? stem, saddle.) It's a very comfortable bike.
