    When I have more space, I'd like to have a SS/FG and am curious when people opt for Nashbar or BD over the other. Can I ask what steered you to the Nashbar bike instead of something like the Motobecane Fantom Cross UNO?

    Maybe because Fantom Cross UNO is a stupid name for a bike.

    My inner teenager secretly want to get one of these, only to remove the stickers and rearrange them to say BACON on the downtube

    My first preference was the Kilo WT, which can take 45mm tires and fenders, even with its caliper brakes...I was about to pull the trigger, but went over to Nashbar just to double check things, and saw the massive sale, so I couldn't pass up the $300 price on the Nashbar SSCX (vs $450 for the Kilo WT). I also like the plain blue color. I've seen the Motobecane CX bikes in person and the graphics are really ugly IMO, and I wanted something other than black...so that was never on my short list.

    State Bicycles is now selling CX bikes for $580, and I considered one of those since my State FG has been a really good bike, but they're kinda ugly and don't have eyelets. That's also getting close to the price point at which I'd rather just build up a Bianchi San Jose or a CrossCheck or something similar.

    Orange Surly decals?!?!?! Me like-ee. Is that a head tube badge, too?

    That cage looks awesome, too. Nice pickups.

    BD vs. Nashbar? I look at price for the specs exclusively. That said, BD seems to put more grease in their hubs than Nashbar. In that sense, BD has easier initial assembly and setup, but this wouldn't affect my purchase decision much.

    Christmas has arrived. My wife now has a Breezer Uptown EX-LS, fresh from Papillon Cycles. Just the type of bike she wanted all along. The old bike just didn't have that personality. *It* (the Schwinn Essence in the Click image for larger version.

    Now, my original intent was one with a dynohub. That didn't happen, but I have a Euro lighting solution soon. After I've run my mouth for so long, I *should* practice what I preach, non?
