Finally got my Frankenbike switched over to yet another iteration- this time its "single speed tourer". Planet Bike fenders, new rack trunk, have my panniers from before (not on yet), and stripped down drivetrain with conversion kit. Started out at 42/16, turned around after a mile, went home and put on an 18 cog on the rear. Much more realistic, I think. Went out the Rt 3 to Fenwick Rd. to Back Belmont loop, still snowy spots in the shade. Sunny, though! Like always, any day with time on the bike is a good one.
