love your web site and the photos gave me lots of ideas for setting
up my commuter bike.
frame is a De Bernardi SL that had hung in a bike shop for many
years and never built up before I bought it. My original intent
was to build it as a fixed gear, but I decided instead to make it
my commuter bike. It's done well despite the racing geometry with
short chain stays, steep angles and lack of eyelets and braze-ons
for racks and fenders. The Barley seatbag easily holds all the food
and gear I need for commuting. My total investment in the bike is
about $1,000 and it easily paid for itself commuting 3-4 days/week.

Wheels: Mavic Open Pro w/ Ultegra hubs and Panaracer Pasela TG tires.
