Hey all! I posted this in the General Forum, but I guess it's more applicable here. I just built up a cross-check into a commuter. So far I love the ride, and it seems really tough and utilitarian.

Surprisingly, it didn't really make my commute much faster, but it sure was a lot more enjoyable...although I'm pretty sure everything is more enjoyable on a new bike.

I was going to do a ride report, but it was raining, so I didn't want to take my camera out of my pocket. I'll try to get around to it next week.

Anyway...on to the pics:

Very nice! I know that many people are rotating their bars "up" these days, but you've gone further than anyone else I've seen.

Enjoy it!

Yep, they're Planet Bike Freddy 'Hardcore' fenders. I found them at the local Scheel's (midwest sporting goods store). As soon as I saw them, I knew they must be mine.
