    Hooray, a fellow Casseroll owner! I loooove mine:

    Let's see your blinged-out rides!-582535_3683666644153_2125121470_n.jpg

    I just ordered a different rear rack for it that should look much better than that one in the photo.

    Nice! Yours looks more teal than mine, that blue paint can really look differently depending on lighting I am noticing. What rear rack is that? I like the shape of it! What front are you going with? Finding a bag small enough to fit on stock was hard. It will be fine for now but if I end up on an all day ride, will need bigger than the Timbuk2 Bento box I have on there now. Just FYI....I got Bruce Gordon Rock n Road knobbies for it yesterday, they fit awesome! So if you have a hankering to go offroad more with the Cass and want to stay skinwall, the RnR tire works awesome! If it wasn't blizzarding here today, I would take a pic. It looks early MTB fantasmal!

    Ooooooo....what year is your Trek?! Looks like early 80s? 520 or 720s model?

    It's the photo - I took that with a crappy cell phone camera. It is definitely not that teal.
    The rear rack is a Soma Deco rack: Soma Deco Rear Rack
    It's a good, sturdy rack, but I wanted something with thinner tubing that fit the look I am going for better.
    I am actually going to make my own bag for the front rack. I've been indecisive on what fabric colors and patterns to go with, but I went ahead and got these panniers: Koki Bagaboo Pandan Cycling Pannier Bag
    So I am trying to find a matching canvas fabric. I was planning to make it just large enough to hold a six-pack.

    Thanks for the heads up on the knobbies! I have been tossing around the idea of doing some mild trails on it... the Paselas have been such great road tires for the price. Larger tires are a must on the roads here in Santa Fe.

    That is a 1983 Trek 640. I love it and use it for commuting mostly (when I actually need a bike - I ride a bus to work and the stops are close enough to not necessitate a bike ride - bummer!). It is such a nimble little thing.

    When only the finest will do....

    Here's my 'bling'. 26" that can convert to 29"+. I notice significant resistance with that bigger hoop though....

    HolyCrap, I didn't realize you could run a fattie w/ a leftie... which makes it a Fleftie? Lattie? Laftie? Flattie?

    Loves me some fat bike. I've been able to toodle around on a fat bike a couple times and their handling always surprises me. You'd THINK they'd handle like a pig to look at 'em, but they don't. I kinda like how it's returning us to the real old skool stuff of wandering around slowly going "I wonder if I could ride that... only one way to find out...."

    There's some really cool videos of folks bikepacking/packrafting kicking around on the intarwebz... The combo of fatbike + packraft opens up previously inconceivable opportunities for exploring the far north.

    If anyone is serious about getting fat, end of season sales of new fatbikes, demos, and rentals are going on now. For example, the good guys at IRide in Waterbury VT posted these:
    20" Surly Moonlander
    20" Surly Moonlander
    18" Surly Moonlander
    16" Surly Moonlander
    14" Surly Pugsley

    You ladies are seriously getting me fatty-curious! Lots of sand around here, but I am *also* a fatty myself who chugs along on the trails, so I am not sure the extra rolling resistance will be much fun when I am riding stuff that isn't sand...

    I'll get my hardtail finished and try out the 2.35" tires (biggest I could fit, reviews said they are really 2.4+"! Pretty chubby compared to the 1.95" I have always ridden ) and decide from there if fatties are worth looking at

    I still *really* want a road bike too, for summer. It's too hot here to safely go in the mountains during summer. Dammit, I think that's the bug biting me again...

    Note exactly bling as I've always liked relatively plain bikes, but it's my new baby, having a carbon frame is probably as bling as I"ll get!

    Let's see your blinged-out rides!

    Love the white frame so easy to bring in another color, I added green in headset spacers, cables, and rims. A couple of blue accents too, rear hub, seat-post clamp.

    what do you think?

    Sweet Niner, Katie! I love your choice for the location of the photo shoot, too!

    My Selma is almost done! I am so psyched! I am waiting on the bike shop to trim up a brake hose. The bike is looking crazy good. I can't wait to rip it up on the local trails this weekend!

    Cleopatra - that. is. AWESOME! Ooh, I just noticed the skulls with pigtails! How did your friend do that? Did they have to take off the clear coat and paint it on, or are they decals? Very cool!

    It is actually paint pen. I have no clue how long it will last, I hope it won't scratch too easily. Seems pretty sturdy. Worth it thought no matter what.

    Let's see your blinged-out rides!

    Over the winter Hubby decided he hated his barely ridden Jamis Dakar 650B1. Saw the opportunity to adopt it and make it my own. I've been working on blinging her up for awhile. Pretty sure I'm done (tho tubeless would be nice). Added purple ano Deity components - Dirty30 bar, cavity stem, seat post and valve caps. A gold Salsa seat clamp and Rays Mtb head cap. Oh and a WSD saddle. Call her my Mardi Gras rig. Just need to figure out how to add some beads! Let's see your blinged-out rides!-imageuploadedbytapatalk1366498479.823983.jpg

    Beaded streamers!!!

    Also, depending on how much time you wanted to put into it, maybe you could also drill holes in the middle of some plastic beads and string them onto the housing and brake lines? Nothing crazy, just enough for the loose loops off the cockpit!

    I LOVE this thread. Ive been eyeballing some really pretty blingy bikes and had no idea I could get the bits to make mine pretty myself! I have a black/white trek, and already have purple pedals. Now Ive spent the past 24 hrs locating new stuff!

    The paint pen worked really well. My only complaint is the lack of color options i could use violet, but not the purple i wanted. I wanted a hot pink to go with, no dice.

    Nothing more bling than the galactic pimp Darth Vader (Lego Mini figure of course). Best derailleur cover ever! Although an epic light Saber battled ensued when my son realized I pilfered his cache.


    Ahh...sorry ladies just saw what forum I am in. Lego Friends mini figures would look awesome with the purple Diety bars however.

    Please proceed with the lashings for my faux pas.
