Brake cable's a little long there, eh?
Lovely bike otherwise. (And I probably wouldn't even have noticed the cable except it's bright red!)
Just finished modding my two vintage commuters with lights, reflectors, racks, and fenders. I'm still thinking about adding mirrors and a better front light than my trusty cateye. My two vintage commuters are a 1993 Bridgestone XO-2 and a 1989 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp:
Fortunately, I don't have a formal business dress code and a pretty short distance to go. I'll just ride in my work clothes. Of course, I have a backup outfit in my office just in case.
Another build from Nashbar frame sale.
Finally able to post up some pics of my new commuter. Went from riding my beach cruiser to a Marin Ignacio with a 2 speed hub. I wanted a fixie style bike, but didn't want to ride fixed gear. Came across this on Craigslist still in the box for $300. I am loving it so far. Work is one mile from home and I can get there faster on my bike now.
^Definitely. Looks like a great build, just the way it is.

Just finished this for the little brother in DC. Started out as a Windsor frame from Bike Island. Swapped the carbon fork out for a cro-mo one I had laying about and saved the former for a road bike proj (more anon). Running 3x7 with SRAM x3 in the back and some mish mash friction set up front cobbled together from parts found at the local co-op. Rolling on 700x28 CST city tires. Sorry for the silver on white photo. Not the best, but was in a hurry. All in all, I was quite pleased at the result: a cheap, reliable, non-descript city bike.
