    but I already have my custom chromed Surly so a Shinola would be a dumb purchase.

    Its on my list. I have a Lynskey 29er front suspension titanium frame I'm getting parts for now. Hopefully tax return will take care of that itch.

    Beautiful bike. Except I would have went with a black fork and black seat post clamp and headset.

    Thinking about getting one of these fanny packs for when I don't feel like wearing a Camelback.

    I'm a bike freak. I ride a heavily modded 80s japanese 12 speed piece of shit road bike that I built. It's my city commuter, ride it all over this hell hole. It looks like shit and has at least ten different kind of shimano components all thrown together but I love it.

    I use something similar. My 1994 race mountain bike- still have it- been converted to a commuter and not many original parts left. I take the worn out parts from other bikes I have a and use it on them old mountain bike.

    My Surly in the pics at the top used to be my clunker bike until I got it dipped in chrome. Its still my workhorse , just prettier. Surly makes a trailer that has threaded inserts right above the rear wheel mount. I have too many plates on the burner right now to buy it though.
