Sweet Pea's Cyclo-Commuter Bike is Done!!!!!!!!

Well it all came together this weekend............ N8 decided to pop over from the city and brought a new chainring and shifter cables and housings with him. The final pieces! N8 did the final set up and adjustments and it was rady to hit the road by noon on Sunday. We went for a 2 hour shakedown cruise around Fort Worden in less than perfect weather and I'm happy to report that the only thing that needed adjusting was the seat height. A perfect bike build!

We ended up finishing the bike out with a full SRAM X-7 shift train, a Truvativ Stylo crankset and GXP external cup bottom bracket and we swapped out the mountain bike fenders for a new set of SKS commuter fenders. I had to drill and tap the rear frame so we could mount the new rear fender and modify the front fender mounts to accommodate the larger fork.

Sweet Pea is a very happy new owner! It's always great to get a new bike and a ton of fun to hunt down the parts and deals for a build-up.
