    Thanks! Yeah a 2007 520. I'm just taking a break on my round the world at the moment. Got a job at Thorn cycles in the UK, so I swapped the drops for the Trekking bars.

    Here's the bike I just built in time for winter!

    Nexus 8R25 (Red Line) on a Surly 1x1 with Alfine shifter! I'm telling you it's a dream to ride on!

    I still have some adjustments to do on the dash and my 18T sprocket hasn't arrived yet (not it's a 21T).

    The owner of the bike shop even said that they'll be ordering Nexus 8 equipped bikes since he's so amazed!

    The pictures don't totally do justice to the amazing green of the frame, I did my best with the lighting nature gave me on this overcast day.



    The Alfine shifter is amazing.


    My beloved Brooks B-17.


    The black Nexus 8R25.
    I'm amazed that it makes no noise, except when free-wheeling. It's awesome compared to the noisy Nexus 3 that's on my father's bike.

    Pluc, what's the hose clamp for? Also what's that rod jutting straight up from the rear stay?
    Regards,

    Thank you Donna! I'm very proud of it too!

    The hose clamps are there to hold the trailer hitch. The rod is part of it.

    They're a bit too long now (it's annoying when you put panniers on) but I'll cut them as soon as I get the proper hardware for it.

    Pluc-

    That is a sweet ride you put together. I put together a black surly 1x1 this past summer with the same drive train (nexus redline) and the alfine shifter. It is indeed a very nice ride. I ended up selling it to a close friend of mine who loves it. I am thinking about building up another one when the orange 1x1 is released. I'll take a few pictures when I see my friend tomorrow and post them here.

    You know, I'm glad I wasn't the only one. I sold my Tacoma a month ago, and I was looking at that pic thinking "man, that's a sweet Land Rover."

    Pluc,

    I absolutely love your bike! I hope someday to be able to set up something like that.

    Awesome!

    Thanks! Personally I think it makes so much sense to invest in a good bike when it's your main transport. I don't own a car so the expenses are much lower.

    PM me I'll give you the money! (Kidding) I only said so because I went though a similar situation stem riser & all) and when I was able to get a larger used bike, I felt a lot more comfortable.

    It's been a great do-everything bike, but after 4000 miles of using it as pretty much my only ride, I'm realizing my priorities are shifting a little bit (newfound cyclocross addition) so I'm selling the Jamis, buying a dedicated cross bike, and this winter break I'll be building my old bridgestone into a commuter/tourer on the cheap.

    When I first got it I had this vision of doing lots of touring, which just hasn't really panned out.
