Gorgeous bike. That should handle just about anything you throw it at.

Almost done (been following the thread over in C&V). Just need some tape and off you go. Going with leather to match the saddle?

The two tubes on top of your right chainstay, spoke holders? hypersonic dog/deer whistles?

I pulled the Brooks leather tape off my Jamis to install on the Tomii. The two stainless tubes are simply a chain-stay protector.

Currently experiencing a cold snap here in Ohio, I'm anxious to spend a day riding it.

the velo equivalent of a "trailer queen". one of the reasons i've avoided the C&V forum for the past two years. too many collectors with pretentious pics of pristine 30 year old bike components and the occasional GI Joe doll in original wrappers. too much. hope it doesn't spread to this forum.

^ Weird. I've spend tons of time in C&V and haven't experienced that. There is the oddball post of that sort here and there, I guess, but it's pretty rare that I see one.

That is a beautiful bike and a wonderful build. I envy you, yet I do not envy your first paint scratch... I can't deal with having bikes that pretty.

Stunning! In fact it's too stunning for a utility touring bike. Is there a tour planned?

Impressive! Nice work juggling the front rack, fender, and disc caliper.

Wow. C&V is my go to on BF's, maybe its because I own lots of NOS stuff and actually like looking at pictures of interesting pristine things presented pretentiously(and with that background these are not pretentious, just nice pictures that show a bike outside). So no one should show pictures of their bike that they have put together before it gets dirty? I doubt that someone builds a bike like that without intending to use it.

To the OP, I love the bars, but really love the valve caps.

What a buzz kill
I typed a couple smart ass comments and deleted them. lol
I've made several good friends through the C&V forum. There are worse things than collecting beautiful bikes.

Cool gift.

I'll be on your heels in July, heading towards DC from the Great Lakes.

I have clips and straps to put on them, Christophe. I like them a lot, very well made.

I'm working on a component list now. It cost a bit. I don't regret it.

If someone were to ask me if this bike was shabby, I would have to say it is not too shabby at all. It is quite a looker. Even the Crampandgoslo works well ; )

My only change would be for TRP Spyres, they are decently light (~162g vs ~170g) and much cheaper than the BB7 SL's (~$90 vs ~$170) and dual piston to boot. I was planning the same ones you had for my new tourer until I started reading more about the Spyres and am making the change. Not to cloud your judgment you picked a nice set but just a hey if you needed to replace them or wanted something a little cheaper.
