ColonelJLloyd is correct - Babyshoe EL's and a Haulin' Colin (CycleFab) rack.

The bars are Ritchey Neo Classics.

I updated the original post with links to the build specs and the final geometry.

That's a normal Swift Industries Ozette in size Large.

The Haulin' Colin rack is really designed for the XL Ozette, but a bag that large would look pretty goofy on a bike my size.

Agreed.

Really a "top shelf" ride.

Hey, I follow you on Instagram. I love this bike! I have a soft spot for pink bikes as I have a pink single speed commuter myself. Great job with the build!

Love the color. It's just the right shade of pink for me to be able to pull off.

I waited almost exactly 14 months from when I placed my initial deposit to when I got the frameset in the mail. You can PM me if you'd like to know what the original quoted build time was, but let's just say it ended up being much longer than anticipated.

The color is actually a light purple/lavender/mauve(??). It's difficult to photograph it accurately. Officially it's "pearl violet" (RAL 4011). I posted some quick shots of details on flickr that show another interpretation of the color.

No particular story - I just like it a lot!

Thanks again for the kind words everyone! I'll post some more pictures "soon"... I've been too busy riding!

This reminds me that I need to try a low-trail bike. This is top notch.
