I road this bike with the Illini 4000 for Cancer in the summer of 2011. It was an amazing bike!

Thanks to Velospace for their continued sponsorship of the I4K!

The main picture was taken outside Cody Wyoming on the 5th of July.

Comfy! ...but why no fenders?

This looks really comortable (partly due to the handlebar position, eh?) Aren't those brake-levers for linear-pull brakes? Everything just seems geared towards capability and that's awesome. Cheers

Fenders to come

I'm going to get fenders eventually, but right now I don't have much of a need. Will I want them sometimes, yeah, but they can wait. The brake levers are standard pull though (Tektro RL340?). What you said is true. Riding this bike is like sitting on a couch sometimes. And right now it is set up to be super relaxed, maybe too relaxed...

Glad to see some UIUC folk!
