    That looks really good and fun. The interchangable single speed front wheel is a nice touch.

    Just kidding, it's a Pugsley fork. They are 135mm spaced and offset like the rear of th frame. This way you can swap the front wheel to the back in case something goes wrong with your transmission

    The gumwall tires are Challenge Grifo XS 33mm Cross Tires. The Brooks is the Imperial Standard in Honey. The bar tape is Adargo Leather Honey, and the bag is a Zimbale Honey (the Brooks bag is a bit too small). Here are the full specs on the dedicated thread I put up:

    Dumb life.
    I sold some stuff via the interweb and took it to UPS this morning. I then rode around the wet streets of PDX for a while.

    I'm hoping to do an overnight camping trip on the Clackamas River sometime within the next month and planning on using the Dummy. It's not that I'll be carrying a ton of stuff but I certainly won't have to worry about overpacking. It'll give me a chance to see how the Dummy feels over longer distances although I anticipate it'll be fine.

    Man, I really want to build a Dummy for taking the BBQ / chairs / etc to the beach in the summer. Ogre + trailer is a smarter move for now though.

    My new born Fargsley. I will probably go back to straight bars eventually, but first I want to try it out like this as a commuter.

    Awesome... I have never seen one in person, and did not know how they were built. That makes soo much sense. Good looking bike.

    That is a sweet Travelers Check! What Bottle Cages are you using?

    Looks like you are set up for a long tour Gonenomad. Have you done any long tours on your troll yet? What handlebar and bar ends are you using and are you going to keep that set up for touring?

    What is the problem with the Deore hubs? I have been using them for commuting/ touring for a few years with no issue. I rebuild them once a year and they are good to go.
