2013 Norco Vermont with added fenders & pannier rack; accessories from Mountain Equipment Co-op-- the pannier bag easily converts to a messenger bag. Registered with Operation Hands-off, I use both a U-lock & a multi-link chain version as well, the bike isn't expensive I just want to discourage anyone who thinks it's a quick pick

Why keep the U-lock on the frame when you have the bag? Doesn't it rattle like crazy hanging off the frame? For that matter I'd probably put all that other stuff like the pump etc. in the bag, too.

Your local bike shop must have been happy the day you bought your bike and 'bits', but one question... You seem to be decked out for a day or two of touring, but don't seem to have bottle cage space. Cammel Back?

That is strange...I don't like the color scheme of individual components /it definitely wouldnt be my choice/, but for some reason it looks really, really good! Can't explain it to myself lol Very nice bike...

The frame clip for the U-lock is actually pretty secure; the bag is both for my work clothes including shoes and also for a place to put my lights & pump when I lock my ride. Have a separate stash bag for the removable seat.

Actually I just commute to work with it, but if I were to get the time for a trip I'd most certainly go with the spinaltap idea. For now the bag has room for a bottle, I'm not worried about losing a few minutes by finding somewhere to sit and cool down. The setup allows for room for my work clothes which includes dress shoes, as well when I lock up my ride I throw in my lights and pump, and have a separate bag for my seat.

I respect your choice, but I would suggest a chain from your saddle rail to your chainstay if you need the quick release post clamp. Why do you need it? Do you constantly adjust your saddle height? In saying that, I do use one because I swap my posts and saddles between commuting and single track rides.

Thought of the chain, the seat post quick release came with the bike; but after thinking about it, a lot of bike theft in my area's just kids joy riding, and a bike without a seat isn't very fun ... Taking the seat with me tells whoever looking at it to go on to something more complete lol.

My specialized crosstrail sport Disc. Love the bike and as you can see in the second pic I broke the derailleur first ride out. I'll admit no idea what I was doing but sure I cross shifted it and possibly didn't tune it right. So took it to a LBS and now it's all better and I've only put about 25miles on it but really enjoying it thus far.
Upcoming mods:
Rear Rack
Child Seat

Things Considering much further out:
Nashbar Carbon MTB fork
SPD pedals and shoes

I think it was more than a tuning problem. It appear that possibly the bike has fallen, and bent the derailleur hanger. When you changed gears it may have got caught on your spokes and pulled the derailleur up over the cassette. Maybe the shop either replaced the hanger or just bent it back. If the later, keep your eye on it.

I did it on the first ride after assembling it myself so straight out the box and has yet to be dropped. But it works great now and I'm extremely happy.

Picked this 2014 Verve 3 from the LBS on Saturday. I did get 5 or so miles on it but it's been way too cold for my old bones. Hopefully Thursday or Friday. The seat has to go. I'm waiting on a Sportourer to arrive.

Looks nice, glad you got the RD worked out. How do you plan on attaching the rack?

For pedals I highly recommend the Shimano PD-A530 double-sided pedals, which has SPD on one side and platform on the other. It's great for when you want to just have a leisurely ride around in regular shoes or flip flops, and then more spirited rides while clipped in, without changing pedals back and forth. I did that on last year's beach vacation (swapped pedals) and it was a real pain. I ordered my A530's shortly after returning from that trip.

Thanks and I really appreciate the pedal recommendation they're in my amazon cart now. As for the rack the Crosstrail comes built with mounting holes (one reason I chose this bike).

Yep, I love the look and just the whole idea of disc brakes.

One of the reasons why I am so keen to get a new bike is so that I can try out disc brakes in all their glory.

They are 26x2.0 got the rims cheap of eBay, came of a cannondale rize I think. Since the pic I swapped the rear cassette with a black one from sun race to match the other set. And aligned the tire logo over the stem, I can't believe the LBS overlooked that when they put tires on my rims, just sloppy. With this cassette the shifting seemed a little off and I had to mess with the adjuster all the time. The other set is 700x38 and are a very tight fit at the bottom rear brace. Dirt has taken some paint off there.
