Dinotte 200L-AA-L?

This looks pretty cool with a tail light and head light all in one, plus it's on sale all over the internet. Just wondering if anyone has any feedback on this setup?

To add to these, try the Schwalbe Marathon XR's. Same as the Plus but lighter. I just got them (35mm variety) on my commuter and they are amazingly tough and comfortable.

Thanks! I agree on the wheel stickers. I am probably going to get rid of them.

As far as frame stickers, I may just end up designing my own. I have a sweet logo in mind that I might do. I think...

Heres a different take on a Surly Long Haul Trucker.

I just finished up the build on my LHT Speed Commuter and am very excited. I took it for a spin this afternoon and it rides very, very smooth. I wanted to build something that would be durable and...
