I've got a Seat bag for it, but need to find something bigger, like backpack sized, for commuting.

Thanks, that would be funny particularly considering her "nom de guerre" is The Abbygator (the pup not the velo).

I've probably posted my M5 CHR before, but now it's got new wheels. I finally replaced the Velocity, which are a step above OEM, with some that are a step above that.

Metabikes Metaphrastic Rival. I've been using this bike for commuting since the beginning of April. Distance one way about 27 km.

(That black thing on the front is a little pouch I use for now to store the battery pack for my Gloworm X2.)

That's just about the most complicated chain line I have ever seen! Is that actually 2 chains with a transfer gear under the seat??!

Yes. there's two sizing adjustments too, one moves the seat and rear triangle the other moves the BB. 5 jockey wheels to manage the chains and needle bearings in the transfer gear (!).

Some similarities to a Rotator.
