You all have posted some great ideas in this thread; I'm going to steal a few and will post my "after" photos when I'm done (likely months from now...).







You know, if it were not for the fact that you are considerably taller than I am, I would be SOOOO envious of you having that bike.

You will definitely have to post some after photos, so we can see a comparision between yours and Lamplight's .
