    Looks like a front porch, and dude lives on an army base (if memory serves correctly). Probably not a big concern for him.

    Bike looks good, although I'd go all black on the bar tape. Saddle looks a lot nicer black.

    My Draft with some new/used parts that I got at work: Bontrager carbon fork, Alex R500 wheel, Sette 7 Aeon stem, Giant carbon seatpost, and a Selle Italia SLR carbon/titanium saddle.



    What it looked like before: risers or flat bar, Leader Trickstar fork, CheapV or Alex Rpd15, Easton Vise stem, Bianchi seat post and Body Fit saddle, Demolition crank, RedLine American BB, SNAFU sprocket 36t, Teny Mag w/ Murphy 16t cog, Wellgo pedals, FUBAR straps

    Thanks, kind of thinking about changing the yellow to gold considering the wheel set is black on 1 side and gold on the other

    I usually put the shackle through the rear wheel, seat tube, post, but my pole is too big for my shackle.

    This, but consider crime rate on base for theft is higher than off base. I could drop $1000 off base and I would get all of it back.

    Yeah Air Force base, it's my back porch. The wife said it had to go outside because the Christmas tree is up, she's not real farmiliar with The Rules.

    Thanks

    Good! I work at a university and routinely see lock jobs so awful I almost wonder why they wasted the time and money on the lock.

    I confess that I have, on VERY rare occasion, used my ULock as an oversized padlock with my cable when I couldn't get it around anything solid.

    Same here. But when I resort to this, I do make sure to pass the U-lock through a wheel and the frame, at least.

    Haha yeah. I see people on base not lock their bike at all on top of bad lock jobs. I could of had an Affinity Kissena and a CAAD10. Dude with the CAAD10 locked the left side of his fork, and he had a QR in the front...

    I have a quick combo lock that I put through rear wheel, seat stay and pole for quick ins and outs, but as long as I'm parked next to an unlocked bike I feel fine haha

    My bike latest setting. I replaced the old styled RB drop bar with nitto b123. Still trying to get a nice looking brown bar tape.





    Which would you guys choose , bar tape or bar grip?
    My b123 would stay clean if I chose bar grips but it's kinda hard to find.

    ^^^Nice simple clean looking bike. My only suggestion would be to remove a link from the chain so that your rear wheel is centered in the dropouts.

    TT is it back to have it that far back in the drop-outs? I usually keep my wheel a little further back on my Surly just to be able to fit bigger tires if need be on the fly.

    As long as the nut washers are in full contact with the dropouts it's mechanically ok. My comment was purely related to aesthetics.

    Picked this up earlier this week and finally got it put together and somewhat adjusted to my liking.
    First actual ride with it yesterday and it rode really well. (Notice the sink full of dishes, priorities are in line)

    Ordered some pedals/straps for it, then I think I'm leaving it alone for a while and just enjoying it.
