    Speaking of pizza - I noticed that Specialized is now selling a pizza bag and rack.





    But yeah, a big load on the front actually benefits from a bike designed for that use. Wheel flop, handling, etc.

    But who eats pizzas small enough to even fit in that bag? Do they make one big enough for the classing 16" individual serving pie?

    They should have called it a calzone bag

    this. for this purpose, I want a bike I don't have to even think about while it's locked up. and that I don't mind scratching the paint up on, from all the random crap I lock it up to. I bought a $200 Raleigh from Amazon that has most things the OP is after for this build (minus cantis). that said, obviously re-purposing a bike is awesome and a fun project.

    Christine Lavin has your song, "Cold Pizza for Breakfast"

    "Some people eat grapefruit for breakfast
    Some people eat oatmeal
    There are those
    Who are sure
    Granola is a very good deal
    But not me
    I don't go for that stuff
    When it comes to nourishment
    I get more than enough
    Nothing satisfies my taste like
    Sitting down to a great big plate of
    Cold pizza for breakfast
    Warm coke to wash it down
    Aah
    Maybe a couple of pepperoni
    Make this meal well-rounded
    Gimme
    Cold pizza for breakfast
    In a pinch cold spaghetti it'll do
    Oh, there's nothing in the world that I like better
    That eating cold pizza with you
    My man takes me out in the evening
    He treats me so nice
    We go to the movies
    We go dancing
    We go for more than a slice
    We order a pie, eat what we can
    We take the rest home, it's part of the plan
    And in the mornin' when the sun rise
    You… "

    - I clearly specified beer run on Fridays and bagel run on Sundays.
    - That said, if I ever need to do a double header, I will pick up the bagels first, thanks V-Place (anyone who buys beer and bagels in the same place is doing it wrong, or lives near a magical store).
    - I have Paul cantis on my ANT. They're good. I have unused vintage Dia Compe cantis sitting in a box. I used to run these on my circa '90 MB-0. They are good too.
    - That Spesh bag looks like it was designed by people who pay $20 for Avocado Toast, and call it pizza... I sort of wonder if Spesh would sell more if they called it an "Avocado Toast Bag" - I would not put it past them. The aforementioned Wald looks like the right way to go for a proper pizza.
    - I'm pretty sure I'm going to hate the handling with or without any beer strapped on the rack, given the CX race geo. Not sure there is a practical solution (alternate stem/bar combos) that would make a difference. More tinkering/testing TBD... Maybe the rack goes on the chillax'd 3-spd ANT, and the Igle is simply a badass SS. Time will tell!

    I think for weighted handling, get a wider bar to have a bit of triangulation on the load for more leverage.

    Now, this Avocado Toast Bag you mentioned....

    The japanese have excellent buying taste and they are fond of quality mechanical things. You can find the best cameras, watches and of course bike stuff in japanese shops. De Rosa. Vintage Campagnolo record. Suntour. The japanese taste has also huge influence in western painting, poetry, philosophy.

    I suspect something like this would help a lot. Not sure if the proportions of the rack suits your needs or if you have frame "stuff" (braze ons, cable guides, etc) that might get in the way. I'd go frame mounted over fork/bar mounted any day, but my first choice is still a courier bag. Second choice would be a rear rack. This from experience. I honestly wanted to like the front mounted stuff before trying it. Maybe I'm just picky.

    Interesting. They even have a link to a double kickstand right from the rack page.

    My main obstacle is the slammed stem.

    Secondary would be the fresh repaint.

    Or maybe I have that backwards.

    Thanks, though - always appreciate new (to me) options.

    Also - it's preorder. Wonder if they will really ship?

    I think one of yours is on the 'bay right now, FYI. Your cx bikes were always so proper, especially the Hampstens and Zanc

    Thank you!

    I have been watching that auction as I really want to buy the hampsten for sentimental reasons. I sold the hampsten for $600 back in 2012, and then it was sold twice after that, $1,500 seems like a lot, and the bike seems to have gotten really beat up since then.

    FWIW the Specialized Pizza Bag might be inane, but the Pizza Rack has been very solid for me over the last five months I've commuted with it. I use an actual porteur bag and not that little thing with it, but it has a smart fit-up system and a light mount.

    Sitrep. Phil is closed for another week, so I'm stuck in the red zone on completing this thing until I can get the BB.

    Getting itchy, so I took the bike outdoors to see the paint in the sun...



    Very pleased with where this is going.

    Might end up putting the rack on the ANT and keeping this as a straight up SS.

    That would look great with gumwall tires and orange grips

    Dropped it @ LBS for the BB install.

    Some shops are doing ok, others not so much.

    If there’s a shop you like, now is a good time to show some love.

    $0.02.
