    I once looked back at panniers, but that was after it bounced off when I forgot to throw the tabs to lock it to the rack...

    It makes no difference what your pannier looks like so long as you can get used to the feel. You put in hardcore mileage (a.k.a. stud) and I'm sure your wife appreciates that fact irrespective of what gear you've got. And baby Charlie loves you no matter what...

    The rare intersection of desire, available funds, and spousal approval...

    Okay, this wasn't for me, but for my granddaughter. However, I figure that three is long past time for her to begin biking!

    Rear hub. That's the bolt-on cog facing out; the thread-on cog is currently on the other side.

    The bits of white tape pick up the white lettering on the downtube.

    I forgot to tell you - I went to Bikenetic. Saw it. Licked the frame. It's mine now.

    (but I'll let you borrow it)

    I'm ignoring you. And your gross tongue.

    Sweet ride, I really like the wheels, and the color. I wish I had the confidence to ride a bike with only one gear. Also, what does the second brake lever do? I see no cable and no rear brake.
