Humungous apologies for not posting these earlier. I took them the day I picked it up from the LBS, and then let them fester in the recesses of my hard drive.

I am back to a Brook's Swift saddle now, after a sit-bone bruising encounter with the original one.

At first the Rohloff IGH took a lot of getting used to, but now it's second nature. So much so that I had to learn all over again how to use derailleurs when I took the MTB out for a spin yesterday.

Thanks, that is a great looking all day anywhere cruiser. Great work by Carl to get that brake sitting inboard like that. Interesting grips, I think I would want longer bar ends for more hand position options but that's a moot point cause it's all about personal choices. The 4th Strong on TCC looks a beaut. You coming up this way in the future?
