(is it a black tape you covering something with? ):)

locking on post will scratch on that spot and the seattube often... the suspension is sr suntour, got it for $20 on Ebay. I am still looking for rigid constantly but couldnt find anything near that price. I think I'll keep it for awhile...

Everything got from Ebay and Amazon (except the handlebar is taken from an old bike lying on the sidewalk), All components are low-mid level. In order to save money, I didn't match the colors, so it looks weird.

The bike lock goes with the seatpost clamp pretty well. :)

Enjoy the ride!

I buy saddles that look good. Black with white stripes matches the bike. What is this 'comfort' you speak of? ...

Me, same same. Fashion over function (^.^)b

MSRP is $90, but most on-line vendors are charging $60. Probably about $125 at bike shops. Haha.

Well found, that's a great price.

I know your bike is alloy, but if water gets down there with salt / road grime it might cause some problems down in the BB area. The actual BB is most probably sealed but these days many bikes don't have a drainage hole down there.

I'd cut and tip that guitar string of a rear derailuer cable.

I'm going to start commuting soon, so I am trying as hard as I can to prepare my bike! I just ordered a Nashbar rack, Nashbar waterproof panniers ($48) and a Nashbar light.

I didn't know what Nashbar was, so just now I searched it. Did you get your 20% today only? lol

I just put a TON of reflective tape on my bike and dots of red reflective tape on my rims.. Gotta prepare for commuting in the early morning and late afternoon!

Bedankt, AdelaaR. No special reason except they were on sale and they offer more hand positions. They DO look kind of long, though. :)

I just took the tape off the front v-brake, seat tube, part of the downtube above the chainrings, and the seatstays.

It remains on the chainstays, rims, fork, front hub, and the downtube near the headtube.

Like the colour combo. I tried yellow on my bike when I got it, but it looked terrible. Maybe because your frame is dark gray (??) and mine is black. I don't know but yours is great.

I liked it on the v-brake. Why did you take it off, did you think it looked messy? If you want, you could tone down the impact by putting some silver reflective tape on the polished alloy bits. By the way, a knog light or similar in the back of your helmet and some reflective tape on your helmet also gives some peace of mind at night. (well for me anyway)

edit I just noticed you don't have much polished alloy, maybe just your levers.
