For most of the week, yes. I travel a bunch for work to a rather warm place, so it's nice having a road bike there.

My “sparksflyhigh Local Bikepath Ditherer” on its maiden voyage.

Needs new tape (pink or purple?), fit stuff needs to be dialed in more, I just got cable stops in so I can fix the housing, but I might leave the full-length housing for the rest of winter. Proper pedals needed. Dynamo lights and a lunchbox are in store for tax return season. The Knards leave a little to be desired but work okay in the snow. But here’s my first low-trail bike hastily thrown together in my apartment. I’ll post an updated picture when I have time to fix everything mentioned.

Thanks sparks I love it!

Purple it is! And thanks rusty. I’m sticking a basket on it after work today so as to put that rack to good use.

Sw8. I love seeing how people build up the frames I build. Glad you like it dude. I think I forgot to include a plastic cable guide for under the bb shell :/

I think so? Tarck has been surprisingly kind to me so far.

It’s a frame that sparksflyhigh built loosely based on the NFE. I call it the Local Bikepath Ditherer.

I got a DJ off a guy leaving town. It's probably the nicest paint job I've seen on a P2.

The nice thing is the kiddo can ride it for the most part.

glad someone bought that! i saw it for sale and the price looked good. although i found the bronze chain to be over the top..

the p3 basically comes in that color right now though..

Yeah, there was a lot of wtf going on with the drivetrain. It had a mixed 3/32 and 1/8 setup. I see why he had the tensioners on there. The paint doesn't let the axle nuts bite very well.

After I took it out for a good session, I made some changes with some leftovers from my sw8 single speed days. The chain is droopy because the rotor was sitting too high in the caliper. I added a spacer, but it got dark by then.

Finally finished (mostly) my self-indulgent commuter fopmobile. A few small details left to sort out over the winter.

Here's my bike in 2010.
I'm about to buy an old Schwinn Sierra to build pretty much exactly this bike.

Maybe. Is it steel? What size?
I did kinda want a Schwinn specifically, but if the price is right...

I really like those rockhoppers from the years after they went to threadless headsets but before they got suspension forks. Probably more than they actually deserve.

I bought one when I first moved to Seattle. I didn't appreciate it at the time as much as I would now.

Tarck is about dirt jumpers, this is mine featuring double flats, a tad to narrow bars and Holy Rollers.
