Well, I built it up from parts on hand over the first weekend of the crisis. Today I had a chance to take it out for a shakedown ride, and ended u doing a half century. Because, why not? it felt good, and I felt good, and there was virtually no traffic. Next will be to ride it to donate blood. My job gives me 2 hours of paid leave to do that, so I'll donate next week.

All in all, it rode great. I just tweaked the seat angle a hair, and adjusted the bag straps. I ended up using mini velcro straps for the Velo Orange Mini Rando bag. Works great, and the bracket loop I made to mount it to the decaleur receiver also did the trick- no problem riding the tops.
