Anyone ever had a set of wheels built by Peter?  I am curious to hear any feedback.  I sent in a quote for some touring wheels and got it back pretty quick.  They are pretty pricey but you get what you pay for I guess.  I also asked for a power generating hub and he worked in the SON28 front hub.  I am leaning on going this route just thought I would like to hear from anyone who has had some built by him before.

General Discussion / Down Tube Shifters
« on: December 30, 2015, 07:58:50 pm »
I have touched on this briefly in another thread but I thought I would start a one just for them.  Is there anyone out there using down tube shifters?  In the last thread a few of the members here said do not use them for various reasons.  I still see pictures on the net with them on bikes of all kinds so I'm wondering......someone has to be using them. 

For those of you with them what do you like and dislike about them?  I'd love to hear from you if you were using them but switched.  I have to say I love the way they look and the appear to be very simple to maintain and work on.  Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Surly LHT/Disc Trucker
« on: November 16, 2015, 08:11:28 pm »
Hello all, I have a dilemma and thought I would post it here for some help.  I am going to build a touring bike and I am stuck on the Surly LHT.  With that said, I want the 700C wheels and not the 26".  The frames are built for 26" wheels through 54CM, 56CM starts the 700C wheels.  I ride a 54CM comfortably and was fitted to that size bike, a Cannondale Super Six. 

None of the shops in my area stock the Surly so I cannot go sit on it.  I am concerned about it fitting me, mainly the top tube.  It is extremely important for a bike to fit properly.  Many times the stem and or seat can be adjusted to make it work, however I feel like the proper way to get it right is to start with the correct sized frame.

My question is, I am 5'10" 215lbs.  I know there is a lot more that goes into fitting on a bike but I need to start somewhere.  Is there anyone out there riding a 56CM LHT that is my size?  If so are you comfortable?  Any help is appreciated.
