IF Commuter Bike

My plan to build a simple and cheap 26" rigid mountain bike failed when this frame came along. It's been an awesome ride so far; fairly quick on the road and will monster truck through rocks / roots like a champion. Upcoming are fenders, lights, a front rack, and some jones bars (or similar "alt" scenario). I'm trying to enjoy it in it's naked state as long as possible.

Here are some photos from a ride around town yesterday.

There's nothing like a curved steel fork on an MTB. It looks great!

That bike looks faster than applesauce through a baby.

@andeww: The tires roll pretty well. They do have a tendency, at low pressure, to grab features on the road or while turning to resist coming back to straight. Jan Heine has some better reviews that I think are pretty accurate. As far as rolling speed, I think the front generator hub has more bearing than the tires - they want to roll.
