    I havenít yet, but thatís in the plan. The bike is setup for short reach brakes, but the clearance is pretty good. With the 28s that are on there, I could probably squeeze a fender in the back, but the front is likely to rub. I bet if I ran a shimano front brake, itíd give me the room to run a front fender and 28s.

    Figured I should post my Ebisu All Purpose. Have it built with Shimano 9 speed dt shifters and an ultegra long cage rd. Sugino Alpina or whatever they call it now square taper crank. H Plus Son Tb-14's laced to 5800 hubs. I mostly use it to commute, though this summer I have it down at the Cape.

    Niiiiice Ebisu! 9 speed is just right for that.

    Great build! I am way too weak morally to set up a similar bike for myself. Maybe more fiber in the morning? Anyway, nice bike and enviably simple setup.

    Admittedly, the ride is a tank. With racks, bag, and fenders (heavy VO stainless fenders at that), it's at least 25 lbs if not a few pounds more. Good excuse for why I'm always hanging off the back whenever I'm riding with a group. It may be heavy, but it handles quite well. You really notice the weight on hilly rides. I did a short 30 miles gravel ride in southern Vermont last week, and I could really feel the weight on those 10% climbs. I do love the positive ca-chunk of shifting Shimano 9 speed dt shifters.
