    I will. I was thinking of getting it painted and having extra water bottle braze-ons added and building it up again. I do love that bike. You certainly will be welcome to use it any time when I finish that project.

    I let my daughter play with the phone the other day and when I took it from her to prevent actually dialling, it read "666". This was the day before the 6.66mi ride.

This bike definitely catches people's eyes, it's gotten catcalls on M street a couple of times. The Mash SSCX is sweet, I think you should get it. Definitely.
    I'm on it, boss. Will report back once I've successfully completed my mission.

    So instead of a SS CX, I could just ride a hybrid? Same cachet right?

    It's been getting a bit too cold for father-daughter rides so I jettisoned the child seat for now, and put on my spare wheels. Amazing how much nicer the bike looks when it doesn't have 32 spoke wheels with reflectors. I do have a spare dropbar laying around too so it probably wouldn't be too hard to actually convert this into a "SS CX". The frame fits up to 32s, maybe 33s. Only issue is the frame is a bit too big for me. I can shorten the reach with a different stem but I don't want it to be too twitchy either.

    i always get the itch to tinker, what are you missing in your fleet? methinks a singlespeed or fixed gear.

    Twitchiness makes riding fun.

    yep, definitely missing a SS/FG
    also:
    29er, 650b MTB, any decent MTB really
    aero road bike,
    BMX/trials,
    touring bike, cargo bike, fatbike
    IGH with belt drive, front dynamo hub
    carbon, steel, titanium, bamboo
    SRAM, Campy, Microshift
    etc.

    Lots more needed. I never said recumbent though.

    I'm constantly tinkering. I moved a quite few doodads around over the last few days - as well as un-babying the hybrid, I have my road bike on my trainer (and who wants to waste a Gatorskin on that), and I restored my 26" MTB to closer to its original build (rode it yesterday).

    That's why I love the BoBike Mini -- the windscreen! Keeps the kid (and rider) out of the wind, extending the season. Especially when she's got some tough Norwegian blood.
