You have to call this bike Johnny 5...
Very nice set up btw.
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
Is that the first belt-drive posted in this thread? Well done, irclean!
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.
Nice bike and pics Stephen.

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

Yes I did, its kinda dark in my garage so it didn't come out as good.
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.
Nice Valencia! Congratulations!
Gettin' my Fred on.
Thanks! So far so good!
