My son actually brought up fenders. We really can't do cheap plastic with this build. Some kind of shiny silver. Also, pedals are on order: DMR V8.

Ha! I actually do have those pics. My guess when I purchased the bike five years ago was that it had probably been ridden no more than a few hundred miles. It was in very good condition, but my son...

There are so many good fatties out there,

Surly included. I've had two aluminum (Framed, Mukluk), and I'm now riding a carbon Borealis Yampa. They've all been a lot of fun.

Why not have a friend take you to the bike, pick it up, have your friend drop you off a mile from the border. Ride through customs, go a mile down the road, have your friend pick you back up.
