    I don't normally look twice at SS bikes, but yours is pretty damn cool. There's something very groovy about the patina of the frame juxtaposed against the blingy new parts that would be totally lost; it'd be just another bike if you painted it.

    Here's my wabi-sabi-ed ride:

    The replacement to the 930, which was destroyed after getting hit by a car on August 6th.

    Getting closer to finishing my new-to-me commuter bike, which I own thanks to Sixty Fiver. Even with the suspension-corrected Surly fork altering the head angle, the bike is still very nimble and fast.





    Still have to cut the steerer tube to length, figure out what seat I want to use, and swap over my wheels, rack, and dyno-powered lights from my commuter. I also have some super cool Ritchey cranks I'm considering using, but they're 175mm and I prefer 170. Plus I think the old Shimanos look better (but the Ritcheys are lighter).

    You know, for those occasions when you'd like to ride a road bike and not have to get all dolled up in lycra and special shoes.

    We are going to look like the Proctor racing team when we get our respective bikes out.

    Nice to see that the project is moving along so well... those old Shimano cranks are cold forged Deores and are one of my all time favourites.

    I'm also extremely impressed with the old Shimano derailleurs. Back in the day I never got to see anything better than LX in person, but these nicer components just ooze quality. I hate to admit it because I'm a Suntour nut, but this DX rear derailleur looks and feels much nicer than my favorite old Cyclone parts.

    The DX group is sweet... my BRC got the same drive and brake parts as the Stratos as this is a groupo that is rather excellent in every respect.

    Sorry to hear about the accident and the 930. I assume you are OK, though.

    My commuter now mostly ironed out. It's a bit twitchy with this particular fork, but it's like a rocket compared to my MUCH heavier Mongoose (which has semi-retired to grocery/cargo bike status, a well-earned break).

    Looking pretty sweet... this was what it looked like before I sent it to my brother from another mother.



    It is a rocket in either form.

    You will have to come and visit and since we can rock the same rides I'll hook you up with a good winter bike.

    15km to the lake and 15km back. A grand lunch out.
