    Well, I guess you won`t be jumping into this week`s STI/Barcon debate or next week`s Canti/linear/disc party. You gonna pull a trailer behind it any chance? I`d hate to see you miss all the fun

    Who needs panniers or brakes. You can hang grocery bags from the "drops" and with luck they'll get into the spokes when you need to stop.

    Riding a fixie or single speed is like playing golf with just a 9 iron-- sometime during the game (ride) you might have the right tool (gear) for the job.

    However, I don't ride a single speed or play golf so what the heck do I know

    there are people that ride fixed for touring, but I'm pretty sure all the ones that have survived the trip had fairly good brakes.

    The bike is nicely set-up; except, I don't like the way the silver front rims clash against the rear black one. BTW, I'm looking at getting a set of those bars for my Miyata 1000.

    I love your minimalist approach, my skinny legs would love it if I toured like this.

    I question the lack of an adjustable stem, though I do like the bedroll storage feature of the handlebars.

    Looks like a good bike, but I think the fork is bent. Also, need some white bar tape.

    I question a lot more than that, but yeah, I think this is a joke.
