... and here is a link to a youtubevideo of my bottom half getting onto the bike to give everyone an idea of how this bike fits me, let me know if I should do more.
-New(ish) rims from a friends bike which has seen maybe 3 miles of road times.
-Great new tires ($27.99) at my local bike shop and I couldn't be happier with them, it was too cold to go riding for very long but ahhhhhhhhh (so much better than knobbies).
-My own touch on the handlebars, I have had those beauties for a while and I will cover them with foam putting bar ends inward on the very tips of the horns kind of mimicking trekking bars giving me a nice reach.
