Blue Steel: Part II

Bought some bolt cutters and installed my fenders last night finally. So here it is, the (allegedly) final setup up the new bike, in its various configurations.




The entire photoset can be viewed at Flickr (21 pics):

Sadly I will not be taking it out for a ride today, the roads are all iced up. The bike slid out underneath me twice when merely walking it up the road. Should be all melted tomorrow though.

That looks great! I have the same Topeak bag and love it. How much does the setup weigh?

Too much... lol.

Not sure, didn't weigh it. Dragging it up and down the stairs with all (empty!) panniers and trunk bag, it was quite a bit heavier than I was used to!


Also yeah, I completely agree with the Topeak Trunk Bag. By far the best purchase I've ever made for the bike. When I was commuting to work it was absolutely perfect. Stored 2 tubes and my entire repair/safety kit, cable lock, lunch, and U-lock. And if I needed to bring extra clothes or equipment to or from work I could just unfold the panniers. I can do pretty much any utility shopping besides grocery shopping with it.
