    Very nice bike there Dryheat.
    One question: do you specifically like that kind of handlebar?
    In Belgium these handlebars are on traditional townbikes and I find them very unhandy, controlless and painfull for the wrists.
    Love the big lights ... makes it look like a motorbike a bit.
    I've also got a setup with 2 led headlights ... it's great for doing nighttime trailriding

    Me too... although it still required some careful budgeting on my part. And then there's always the inevitable need for accessories!

    Ha! Johnny 5. I hadn't thought or that.

    Thanks, sixtyfiver! I've admired many of your bikes through this post and your garage/workshop is fantastic.

    I know what you mean about townbikes being unhandy etc., but with the bars flipped it puts me on top of the controls and forward leaning rather than upright and reaching for the controls. It feels a little less aggressive than my road bike. I'll admit though, it took a couple rides to get used to the feel. Now I really dig it.
    I like my big headlights I ride a lot at night.



    Thanks again for the kudos!

    Here are some glamor shots of mine the first day I brought it home, which was only a couple weeks ago - I'm a newbie.

    You need to rotate your handlebars a little so the end of the grips are not higher than the rest of the grips. Flat or angled down towards the rear. That angle is wack.

    that might be an illusion due to the angle of the photo aggrevated by a wide angle lens.

    Thanks guys! I know my bike isn't anything to lust over, but as my first "real" bike, I'm taking a lot of pride in it. Just put some bar ends on it as my first mod

    I really appreciate your comment! It makes me feel good about my choice At the time I purchased it I didn't want to invest a huge amount of $, thinking I didn't even know if I would like cycling or not.

    Thanks again

    nah, lighting is an inverse squared function. the flash light the top tube. if it had exposed the ground below/behind the bike, which is maybe 8 times farther away, the top tube would have been overexposed like 64X (or 8 f/stops).

    Picked it up yesterday, replacing a Trek 7100 that I had pranged pretty severely and soldiered on with a bent frame for a year and a half.
