This bike was built almost entirely of used, close-out, or free stuff. I had originally wanted a custom handmade steel tourer (after visiting NAHBS), but for less than the cost of a budget US-made custom frame/fork, I built this whole bike. I don't really regret my decision though, after starting to use the bike for its intended role (commuting & errand runner) and seeing the first scratches show up.

Thanks. The shifters actually work really well as long as your hands are in the "curve" of the bars. It definitely looks more complicated than it operates!
