Then you understand the pain of searching for a frame in our size! I waited a good month and a half with no hits until I decided it might be a good idea to post a WTB ad. Glad I did!

I like your Sirrus, looks like you actually fit the frame reach wise too! The stem that came on the Cannondale was about as long as yours, and it made me feel like I was being scrunched up on top of the bike. If you ever need another quill stem in your length, you know who to ask!

..
What I didn't realize at the time I built my Sirrus DBC that in the process I built an aluminum framed prototype of the AWOL that came along 6 years later.. Should've charged Specialized a royalty.. I find it even more comfortable than my '88 only downside is i can't turn the front wheel past 90 deg (Handlebars hit the top tube) Looks like the same thing happens on the Awol..

Sorry in advance for the low quality of the pic, but here she is...



I bought the complete bike from American Cyclery in San Francisco. I didn't care for the stock wheels, so put the DT Swiss wheels I had on it with Conti Contact 2's in 28c. The spoke nipples are black anodized brass, but I have a box of silver alloy ones that I'll be replacing the black ones with.

I put a Minoura accessory bracket in the headset stack for my front light. I really like the positioning of it there, centered and low, and I have it adjusted so its primary illumination is out to about 10' - 12' out. I also use a light on my helmet for downrange illumination and to have light where ever I'm looking.

Next month I will be upgrading the rear rack to a silver Logo Evo, and replacing my old Backroller classics, which are over ten years old and have survived literally years of commuting duty.

That's all for now... any comments are appreciated.

Edit: here's a better pic that shows the bike and accessory bracket for the front light.
I was just in American Cyclery this afternoon test riding this bike and a couple others. I also rode a Saga and an ES. Wasn't big on the ES, but I did really like the Saga. What made you choose this one? I stopped in at Avenue Cyclery a couple blocks away afterwards and rode a Long Haul Trucker, which I also really liked. That and the Saga are the my favorites of the seven or eight I've tried out.

Besides the wheels, is everything else stock? Looks like the SRAM setup, so I'm guessing yes. I'm thinking about building mine up to tailor it how I'd like. Not a big fan of bar end shifters, especially if I also have to pay attention to dodging the traffic on Market!

I'm also diggin on the all-black theme. I don't know why you would go from stronger matching black brass nipples to non-matching weaker alloy nipples. If I were you, I would try to complete the blackification at least by taking the stickers off the rims, and getting a black water bottle cage, if not looking for a black crankset. Also, if you feel you need to replace the rack, why not stick with black? As it is, the black theme is so comprehensive, the few silver elements you have are sticking out (visually)

Also, looking closer, what kind of crazy stretch cage is that? Is that a rail that a top-clamp can slide up and down to adapt to whatever length bottle? Pretty *****in (especially if you could've gotten a black one!)
Have a black crank on my Sirrus... don't like how it looks after a few thousand miles on it, with bright silver scratches all over it, and a bare spot in the anodizing from regular rubbing from the toe straps I used for years. In short, while black cranks look awesome when they're new, I think they look like crap after they've been beaten on for a couple of years or more.

I really like the look of the tan ES with the black Apex group on it, but the geometry just doesn't fit me that well. The Saga was too slack for my tastes for commuting; I prefer the sportier geometry of the DCD. The DCD also has a longer top tube which fits me better than the ES or the Saga. I rode a Long Haul Trucker at Missing Link and didn't like it at all; felt like a brick and the rear end was too slack. The plain 4130 cro-moly in the LHT just doesn't compare to the Prestige in the DCD IMHO.

Everything else is stock except for the bar, which is a Cowbell 2 instead of the stock Soma Highway One. A friend of mine has a Cowbell on his commuter bike and after trying it, I fell in love with it. The one I have on my Soma is a 42 and it fits me perfectly. I'm planning on switching my Fuji Sportif 1.1 over to a Cowbell eventually too; comfiest drop bar I've ever used.

With respect to the spoke nipples, I like the look of the silver offsetting with the black rims, and I've had only very minimal durability problems with alloy nipples. I'm an accomplished wheel builder (built over 100 wheels in my life) and know how to prep a wheel so there's minimal strength lost with alloy nipples. (I once built a wheel and lived for 5,000 mi. that only ever needed the slightest truing now and again.) I also want them for the weight savings... I commute in traffic in San Francisco several times a week, where being quick off the line is very helpful, and lighter wheels will help with that a lot. At least that's been my experience.

I got used to the double-tap shifters pretty quick; I like how crisp and clean their action is. (I don't see how anyone could successfully use bar-end shifters in downtown SF!) At the same time, I'm more familiar with / used to the 105 STI shifters on my Fuji, so I'm going to swap them over to the Soma, along with the 105 rear derailleur, and put the Apex shifters and rear derailleur on the Fuji. I'm doing it primarily for weight-weenie reasons; I want to shave grams off my Fuji and detail it out because it's my Ferrari, so to speak, while my Soma is my station wagon, if that makes sense...

Anyway, thanks for the compliments on my new ride... I'm very happy with it. I do have some other pics of it, which I'll post in a bit.

I, too, am more familiar with the 105 (what I'll be putting on my build), though the double tap weren't nearly as bad as I remember them a couple years ago.

I might have to pick your brain some on the wheel building; that is the one area where I know absolutely nothing. I haven't decided whether to buy a prebuilt set or have a shop customize them for me, but that is my next and final decision to make.

If you don't mind my asking, your cycle computer, is that a Cateye Padrone? Been thinking about one of those. Very nice setup, by the way.

Yes, it's a Padrone. I actually have moved it to my Sportif, because when riding that I tend to not have my glasses on, and the bigger display allows me to actually read it, compared to the Strada Double Wireless I had on that bike, which is now on my Soma. Since my Soma is my new everyday bike, I am usually wearing my glasses when I ride, rather than my sunglasses (haven't been willing to drop the $$$ to get prescription ones) allowing to actually read the display of the Strada.

I hadn't been using it as a commuter for a while, but my fiancée -- who's much better sized for the bike than I am -- adopted it and customized it with a front basket, loved it. Stupid thieves.

Thanks, Steve... It sucks, especially since she had started to ride it a lot more recently. By the way, long time no see! Hope Kyoto's still treating you well.

Sunny summer afternoons I often opt for the road route. Unfortunately all of the cross-town roads in Anch are 45 mph with no bike lane and often no shoulder, just sidewalk; so I'm stuck stitching together a ride from neighborhood to neighborhood, hitting sidewalks where I must, and stopping (or at least slowing) at all the stop signs and lights involved in a cross-town commute. However, in the early morning MUP traffic is light, and usually it's just me, the trees, ducks, moose, ravens, and occasional cyclist or runner; frequently I can forget that I'm riding through the middle of a city.

I would love to see bike lanes on every street in Anch, and would happily use them, to garner a bit more reliability in my commute time (ever been stuck behind a moose on a MUP?) and to help combat the "bikes belong on the path or the sidewalk, not on the road" mentality that is so pervasive in this town. But I would definitely miss the quiet and peaceful feeling of riding a nearly empty trail through the woods, creek running beside me, ravens quorking overhead, or along the coastal trail, with the sound of the inlet waters lapping the beach at high tide.



This is Alaska, winter ain't over yet. I mean, I could really use them right now, but we'll probably get more snow come late April, or early May.
Loved the photos, the adorable puppies (what breed or mix is the black pup? So cute!) and the bike. I'm a transplant to Anchorage and I've noticed how treacherous it can be to bike (and walk, but that's another story) in my area. I am building up my commuter bike as we speak, hope to have it done for Bike Month, and plan to go a bit out of the way to stay on the most MUPs.

I would send you my mini-velo, but you can probably get one quicker there.

My LBS-built beauty. It had flat bars, but I couldn't get really comfortable on them. Switched it to drop bars and the Tektro brake levers that let you use V-brakes, and it's great!
