    Where I live they allow motorcycles on the sidewalk. I ride in the street though.

    I prefer the handling of 20" wheels to 700c. They accelerate faster and I like the way they corner. The only real downside is that the very short wheelbase makes cross-chaining more of an issue.

    I don't use a speedometer but the world record for upright bicycle speed was set on a Moulton with 17" wheels so I don't really think the 20" wheels are any slower than 700c. They're illegal in UCI racing though, and racing tends to set the aesthetic of what is fast.

    They are retro-shifts, and I really like them but they're overpriced.

    Here's a video:

    ^^ Cool video. I always enjoy looking at street scenes from different cities around the world, especially from a bike POV. Makes me want to get out and ride.

    Nice video Omiak. I don't think I could handle that traffic myself.

    interesting, however, i'm not so excited by the belt drive and the lack of dynamo.

    also, i can't watch the video

    Here goes:
    The bike is a Civilian Corduroy Rebel. It came stock with:


    • Shimano Alfine 8 internal gear hub
    • Gates Carbon Belt Drive
    • Tektro Lyra disc brakes

    I had the bike re-powder coated to RAL 1013 (off-white/almond shade in person).
    Aftermarket gear I've added:

    • Schwalbe Delta Cruiser brown tires
    • VO Hammered fenders
    • Brooks B17 honey saddle
    • Niterider Lumina 650 headlight
    • Crane Brass Headset Spacer bell
    • Minoura Besso front fork headlight mount
    • VO Retro water bottle cage (with brown elkhide leathers)
    • Klean Kanteen stainless bottle w/bamboo top
    • Lezyne Road Drive M pump w/pressure gauge hose
    • MKS Touring pedals
    • Civia Bryant chain guard (custom cut and fitted by me)
    • Naborsa leather saddle bag
    • Spanninga Pixeo fender mount tail light
    • Tubus Locc rear rack (built in mounts for Abus locks)
    • Abus X-Plus 54 Granit lock w/TexKF mounting system
    • Portland Design Works Danger Zone tail light

    I may have gone a little overboard with the accessorizing...

    A dynamo hub will be in the future for my next bike for sure. The idea behind this bike was to aim for a somewhat retro look, but with every modern commuting convenience. Going full on retro next go-around though!

    Owlicks, that's gorgeous! Perhaps just a bit too precious for my tastes, but damn, that's a handsome, impressive, steed! You should ride it proudly.

    Owlicks - that's a beautiful bike. You've done everything right. I wouldn't be terribly concerned about the lack of dynamo if purely aesthetic purposes are concerned.

    It's never too late to switch to dynamo power. I've added it to my 1990's Bianchi Volpe SUV.
    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?

    Oldie, but a goodie.

    Here's my 1984 Trek 620 I would commute with, but currently entirely disassembled on my basement floor. She's getting some new parts and a new paintjob

    +1 Dynohubs on all my commuters were the best move I ever made and when factoring in the cost of new batteries and battery run light sets it becomes a far better value.

    Gorgeous. What was the catalyst for the paint job? It looks great in the photo.

    +2. Any commuter bike I build up in the future will have a dynohub. My current ride, a Bianchi Valle, has spoiled me.

    Never heard of Civilian but those are some great looking bikes. After looking at the website I'm contemplating the SS Luddite mountain bike.
