With the Bridgestone XO-1 (not the color, mind you...that's just a coincidence) as my inspiration, here's my new all-rounder that I plan to use for the next 10+ years as a cruiser / commuter / child-puller / trailer cruiser / family truckster.

I'm confident that I built it right for me, and the ride is better than expected. Nitto mustache handlebars, single bar-end shifter, MKS pedals, and SOMA clips - a la Rivendell. Brooks B-17 narrow. Sugino cranks from Harris Cyclery. Mavic X717 wheels, 1994 Chris King headset, Avid V-brakes, Cane Creek levers, and XT derailleur round out the build.

Thanks for checking it out.
