The Perfect Commuter Bike : Quick Update

Long Haul Trucker

Currently the Long Haul is sitting as pictured above.   I installed the Schwalbe tires by chance, not thinking they would fit, but they did.   The tires I think have taken the bike a completely different path than originally I thought it would go.   The bikes looks have changed.

Yesterday, I worked on installing the Velo Orange 60mm 26″ fenders.   I need a new L-Bracket to install the front fender but I did a quick mock up photo, as you see above.

The handlebars installed right now are Nitto North Road handlebars, attached to a Misfit Psycles stem. I’ve been really impressed with the change of ride quality between the fat, balloon type, tires and the swept back handlebars..   There are still several handlebars to work through before I can give you an honest opinion on which handlebar I prefer, but I like the swept back and comfortable feel as it is.

What do you think so far?
