On the plus side, it really is a unique build that always confuses the hell out of people.

I can see both arguments:

1. Lower-mid level, but who cares, and the bike is a good value. The beauty of these bikes aren't high zoot crank sets, or light weight front derailleurs. Their beauty is...

That's a great question...they look like Suntour Commands and I agree, they seem very sensible. I might have to try this out!

Yeah...I would have gone black, but I think your approach worked.

A brass bell would really tie the room together ;)

I'll give it a shot, but to be honest I've ridden commands with the xc pro and freewheel and thought they had the same issue. My cassette was spaced correctly, so it shouldn't be a problem. If the...

For what it's worth, I think it's a better, easier set up than cantis and it works very well. I was really happy about how that part of the bike worked out. The commands, not so much. I understand...

Suntour Commands...I'm not thrilled with them, though I'm picky and spoiled by Campagnolo perfection. If I did the build again I'd have used brifters or maybe even the dread barcons.

I LOVE the v-brake set up with Tektros...it's not terribly expensive, it's more stopping power than cantis and they're easier to set up. If you aren't going brifters or fenders, this is by far the...
