    You can't tell from the pic...but they really dont look like they seen much road at all.
    You'll be riding on your head if you try to push it with those old tires/tubes on there !!!

    I like it. Did you mean to give it a "rat rod" look with the red rims?

    Holy cow~!

    Where did you get those fenders? I must be looking in the wrong places...cause I can't find a set of chrome ones.

    Just bought a Jamis Aurora that I'll use for some touring (only on certain days when I can lock it up inside). Until then I'll keep using my beat-up bridgestone. On the Aurora the shop upgraded the shifters from the silly 20 dollar ones it came with to a 90 dollar pair of bar ends for no extra cost

    I'll post pictures when I can find that darn camera.

    EDIT: Trace22clawson, I love those old leather saddles- the kind that conforms to your butt over time. Is there anyone that still makes them, or is that one older?

    I locked my new commuter up and ran upstairs to get my camera to take a pic for you guys. By the time I got back, this was all that was left.



    j/k...I just wanted to post that pic. Be careful locking up.

    That's a brand new saddle. It's the Brooks B-17 Champion special. Do a search of the forums on "brooks" and I think you will find that 98% of the posts rave about the brooks. People in the touring forum don't seem like they will ride anything else. I've only got about 150 miles on my saddle so it's not broke in yet. People tell me that it happens around the 500 mile mark. Even though it isn't broke in yet, I don't have any complaints about it. The brooks saddles can be a bit pricey, and you have to take care of them (mostly just don't ride them wet.) You won't have any problem buying one... they are all over the place and every LBS has heard of brooks.

    It's not ideal (it feels so heavy when it's loaded up) but it gets me there and back (16 mile round trip)

    Tank Girl: My '04 Giant OCR Touring
    I have replaced the rear rim with a Rhyno Lite, added a Brooks B-17 saddle (smooth as butter) and a stem riser. The rear rack is a Axiom Journey Disc Brake Compatible. It has my latest version of my geek lights system: MR16 3 watt Luxeon headlight with 2 small aux. drive lights, 2 beehive 9 LED tail lights, one amber strobe and car horn. She doesn't look too bad for having about 10,000 miles on her.

    Nice build Map tester. Do you have a close up pic of the disc side rack mounting?

    Oh and BAH, everytime you post a pic, I want to build an extracycle just for the fun of it!

    How are you liking that double kickstand?

    The two-legged kickstand is good; unfortunately, I trimmed it to size when I had smaller tires on her. Now it rocks just a little, so at some point I'll add another shim under the kickstand mount.

    Here is a old pix of the rack mount around the rear disk brake. Recently the rod that attaches to the bike fatigued near one end and broke. I made a new one from steel and rotated the mounting point to be inside the rack supports--maybe I'll take another pix if you are interested.

    Wow, it looks like you spend some serious coin on roadie mods. How about some details!

    Why not add a rubber or plastic end cap to one or both legs of the kickstand? That way you can change tires and all you need to do is remove the end cap. I'm trying to think of a good source, but I'm sure a little creativity would result with something. I think some stands may come with something like that, maybe the LBS has a couple laying around. A rubber piece would make the ESGE more slip resistant too.

    Just a thought.
