Great bike, I need to try those bars on my commuter.

I see Paul Comp is now selling an orange bottle opener/brake adjuster tool, you absolutely need one of those.

Bike looks great, my buddy got a Cielo from the forum here and its seriously nice, level of detail and paint is amazing.
It is indeed a Fairweather stem. I bought it from BlueLug a couple/three years ago. I think at the time they told me I was the first USA Fairweather customer. Kinda neat

Thanks. The bars are nice and Soma sells them for like $40.00 I think. I bought mine off Tony @ Breadwinner though. They use them on their Arbor Lodge bikes. They are local so I just swung by Tony's shop. Nice and convenient!

I already have one of the brake adjuster/bottle opener tools but it's black. Totally don't need it but now that I know they're selling orange ones I'll probably have to buy one

First time I've seen this incarnation, you did a hell of a job on it. I'm not one for swept back flat bars but with that frame and choice of components it all works. Must be a fun ride yet can get up and go.

Thank you sir! Definitely a super fun bike. When I decided to go the upright/swept back ride I was a little worried it wouldn't be "right" and would end up slow and dumb but just the opposite. There's something so fun about having a more upright cruiser that's still surprisingly quick and nimble. Like I mentioned previously I recognize that it's kinda silly to have full Dura Ace on a bike with swept back bars but it ends up adding to the fun of it all. Makes me smile every time I'm on it. Only occasionally do I find myself humming the wicked witch from Wizard of Oz theme while I ride it...

Of note, there's a couple bikes that gave me a little more inspiration to go the route I did with it. Specifically these:

My new handlebar bag from RoadRunner arrived yesterday. Perfect for this bike. Compliments the orange RoadRunner saddle tool roll and gives me a perfect spot to stash my wallet, phone and a couple snacks.

Here in Portland most all of January has been pretty terrible weather for riding. Record snowfall, freezing rain, ice and extended below freezing temperatures. Today it's near 50 degrees and sunny. Feels like summer! Time to dust off the Cielo

One of my regrets is not getting one of these when they were made.

It really is a sweet bike. Haven't regretted mine for a second and even more happy to have it ever since they discontinued this model.

Here's a pic from today

I ended up pulling off the 7800 crankset to I could put it on my Geekhouse. It's great on the Geekhouse but left me in want for the Cielo. Thankfully, and as always a fellow forum member came through and filled my parts wanted need! So, updated crankset is Ultegra 6800 which matches well. Especially with the orange Mowa chainring bolts installed. Also upgraded from wire bead Panaracer Pasela 28c to folding bead Panaracer Pasela 32c.

Still super happy with this bike. This is the bike I think I'll always keep around. I think the only thing I'm considering changing at the moment is the stem. Still thinking I'd be better off swapping to something about 20mm longer to match the upright bars. Well, and maybe a set of black White Industries pedals too. you know, for when I want to drop a couple hundred on a set of pedals

Thanks! I have definitely found it can be a tricky balance when adding color to a bike - don't want to overdo it to the point of distraction. I'm really happy with how the orange highlights echo through this bike. I was thinking about doing orange bar ends from Kustom Kaps along with their orange bottle cage bolts for a little more hardware pop. We'll see.

What chainrings were you using on the 7800 crank?

This bike is a big inspiration in theme for my potential winter project!
