    Thanks! I'm 6' with 33.5" inseam, and I set my seatpost height at 6" from the clamp. All the best for your build!! Make sure you get the right geometry.

    Nice utility bike, Joey! I like the red highlights. What handlebar tape do you use?

    Thank you.

    I think it was this? Fizik Microtex Handlebar Tape - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available Or the house brand equivalent. I like it since it is not prone to look dirty and has stayed bright the last 4 months. It is thin and not padded but that is my preference.

    Thanks Joey! Looks good. Might try it on my next bar tape replacement.

    I dunno.... nice bike and all, but looks a bit cluttered. Do you really need all that stuff attached to such a pretty bike?

    Yes, and more. In particular the little man and his his pannier.

    Everything attached is used everyday. It is a daily daycare hauler then gets me to work.

    I love the yellow bike.
    @DiabloScott I like the stealth flat black, the fenders are a nice accent.

    But the yellow does it for me.

    A little of DIS, a little of DAT. Seriously, years ago I swapped engines on an old 421 Riley Rocket conversion (if anyone here knows what they were; good on you) and the "manual" said for engine removal: "Remove engine from mount. Installation is the opposite of removal." That was really helpful.

    Yes! Avanti II. Sorry, though, I am just a tech. No rides from me. Years ago (again) I was flown to Sarzana, Italy do do some engine work on one of the Guardia Costa's P166's. THAT was pretty nifty.

    Wow, haven't posted here in a while. Oh wellllll XD

    Anyways, this has been my daily ride since early May or so. It's far from a dedicated "commuter" but it works so far.

    Trek 3900, from 2007 I believe
    -Cheap rack/bag I found at walmart a while ago
    -Schwinn computer
    -Rear light, didn't have my headlight on in this pic



    I just ordered a set of Ibera panniers, new set of schwinn Street Comfort Tires, and some other miscalculation bits.

    If anyone had some advice for other additions I could make, I'd appreciate it. Not sure how compatible Treks are with various upgrades but I'm always looking to learn!

    If you ride it to and from work on a regular basis, then by definition it's a (the) dedicated commuter. What else would it be?

    Ha, true enough! Probably not the most efficient ride out there, but it can definitely take a beating! I've been running that poor bike hard for about three years now.

    Street tires will make your life a lot easier, but what's your plan for keeping panniers out of your spokes? Maybe that was your "miscalculation bits"?

    I've been using this on the streets the last couple of weeks. Light frame, longish wheelbase, and wide-ish (32mm) tires make for a nice ride. It has a Sturmey-Archer S3X hub, which is a 3-speed fixed gear hub.

    I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter. --Blaise Pascal

    A manual written back when an A&P was expected to know how to figure stuff out. Unlike today where we are expected to give a reference for everything, including how to use a screwdriver to install a screw.

    Damn autocorrect, hah. "Miscellaneous" and yeah, that's part of the plan. I'll see if the Iberas will work on my current rack but if not I'll get something else.

    When you have a minute (make one) remove the front wheel and look at the bottom of the fork crown to confirm that yours has the steel dowel pin that was added to prevent unannounced steerer tube separation.

    It's very obvious and if you don't see it, consider that fork to be a micro-second away from a face plant. Not the next micro second, just any some time down the road.

    I have done a thing before where I took "galvanized steel strapping" (I live in CA and had lots extra from a roll I had to buy to secure a water heater), cut two approx 8-12" lengths, folded them in half so the holes aligned, used bolts through holes on the bottom end to attach to frame, and then hooked pannier straps into holes on the top end, and then tightened. It worked pretty good to stabilize panniers on a seatpost rack.
