I've been commuting on this thing for the last year:
It's an L.L. Bean-branded steel frame hybrid, manufactured in China. It's known on the street as the "Acadia Multi-Terrain." Sounds tough, right? The Acadia features legendary Shimano Altus C-20 components and grip shifters (I'm pretty sure Lance LeMond was running the Altus package the first time he won the French Open). I traded a $20 bill for this bicycle at a garage sale last summer.
Then I started looking through catalogs and before long:
Panaracer CTX 700x37C tires
Zefal Cab fenders
Nitto North Road bars
Nashbar LDT rear rack
Nashbar grocery bag panniers
Planet Bike BRT-1
Planet Bike Protege 9.0 computer
I'm going to retire this bike in a couple weeks and start commuting on my old Peugeot UE8. I'll post a photo of that disaster when it's ready to roll.
