    New bike for travel and commuting
    My new bike is nearly finished. Only the rack and the fenders are missing.
    All the bits are ordered and will show up soon.
    Here is a first look.

    Nice! ...now does anyone know the best way to remove drool from keyboards? Coveting the internal gears & belt drive for the winter commute.

    +1 and add in disks, for me. (As in I don't got no...)

    PS: I found that shutting down the PC turning the KB upside down and running paper towel or other absorbant cloth back and forth until all free liquid is gone. For thicker saliva or thin Maple Syrup, take it outdoors, hold KB firnly (important to get the holding area dry) and see how fast you can 'flick' it off the keyboard. Mist KB with it upside doen wipe and repeat until not sticky & no evidence of problem. Allow to air dry before returning the KB to service.

    PPS: It is best not to be observed doing the 'flick thing' by your spouse or neighbors! :D

    PPPS: A bib or a small towel at the computer station can prevent this!

    I have this problem visiting the Waterford site and looking at 953 frames, too.

    You are right. Were some older pctures.
    Here a few with the complete set of brakes.
    Let's see how it will look with fenders and rack
    later.

    Now it is complete with rack, drybag and fenders.
    It's going smooth forward and good fun to ride with.

    What size tires. Good it doesn't have a Schmidt dynamo hub, or I'd need a second towel!:thumbsup:

    Needs good day/night lights unless your routes are wel lit.

    700C. Was thinking about a Schmidt dynamo hub but decided not to go with that.
    Don't want to have that cable stuff and I don't spend that much time riding in the darkness.
    Summer is just starting and for the darker mornings I'll go and buy an Exposure Toro for the front and a Cateye TL1100 tail light.
    That should do.
    If I would decide to go for a dynamo hub wheelset later I only have to change the casting of the fork. Not a big problem.

    OK. I knew 700C. But 700C what? 700C-32? 700-C-35? 700C-37? 700C-40?

    Yeah, the dyno is easy later. We're headed to dark riding here so lights are on my mind. :D

    700C-37 . Here the weather is becoming better and better. So lights
    are not on top of the agenda.
