Here is my bicycle:

62cm Surly Long Haul Trucker (sans hideous Surly graphics)
Shimano LX components
Sugino crankset
Mavic A719 Wheels w/DT double butted spokes XT hub rear 36h, Schmidt Nabendynamo front B&M lights
Nitto 48cm Noodle bars
Honjo hammered extra-long fenders
Brooks B-17 Champion Special saddle
Tubus Cargo rack
Shimano double sided touring pedals (one side of each pedal is clip-less)
Schwalbe Marathon 32mm (no flats so far over thousands of miles)

The pictures I've submitted show it with cantilevers, but I recently nixed those in favor of v-brakes (using the new Tektro direct pull drop levers) because I needed a lot more stopping power for rain/steep descents/loaded touring.

This bicycle is not light or fast by any means, but it is tough and comfortable. I really have come to love it. Its my only bicycle so I do everything on it. The handling with a load on the rack is extraordinarily smooth and stable; even better than when its unloaded. I like the fact that I didn't spend a whole lot for the frame, so I can beat it and nick it and ding it and I don't feel so bad.

Thanks for having such a fun website.
