Ok, thanks! I'll post up when it's done.

Currently waiting for my Hunt wheelset, actual weight on those (vs. 1821 g claimed) will really determine what's achievable.

I felt that this thread needed an update since Eli's Super Commuter is now my Super Chunky Road Bike. It even goes to 12 now (thanks Ratio Technologies) and is Dynamo Powered.

Nice. Glad to see the acorn bag and my (slightly janky) fender install is still going strong

Looks great. Wonder if it's the only BMC in Germany?

@angryscientist there are two that I know of. One that's a monster cross and another road+.

@eli - going strong! With those wide rims (velocity blunt ss) The 48mm tires blew up to 52.5mm (tubeless). I had to get them fenders redished but it worked out!

Absolute stunner!

Any detail on the HONJO statement? Why do you think they're so good? I'm on my third set (2x diff' bikes) of V/O's and considering a set for the SSCX commuter build. Did you look at Rene Herse?

Love the straight fork.
