Nicely done

Adding to the cluster


This bike ends up being a pretty reliable trekking/touring bike... it has a surprisingly comfortable ride since I switched out the Champion Flyer for a B190 saddle and put the drop bar above the shifter bar...


this is the ultimate touring type bike as far as im concerned, i would ride around the world!
hows the rohloff? im scheming on a surly big dummy set up with one.

Mikkelson with Rohloff

The bike is pretty stout. If you plan on traveling with your bike a lot, or you plan on bad road conditions, the Rohloff is A+. There tends to be a 'lag' between gears. You notice it after the gears wear in - your pedal stroke travels a few degrees before the gear engages. It can be a little weird/frustrating, but you get used to it and it seems to hold up really well.




Cool, eh?
