Bike looks great ! some stainless steel fenderswould really give it style.

BTW isn't that the bridge in Greenfield Lake park? I just bought property(vacant lot)on the opposite side of the lake on E.Lakeshore Dr in September. I am looking forward to riding around that lake everyday in my old age

If I had a bike that looked that nice. I won't ride it : I'd be afraid of getting it dirty.

ding, ding, ding...someone give velonomad a prize...yes, that is where it is. it's a nice little loop around the lake. it's five mile there from my house and i think it's five around. some how it always ends up that i ride a mulitple of five when i'm cruising around it. anyway, the next purchase for the bike will be ss fenders and racks. i've got the ss bottle cages that i haven't put on yet.
