Somebody emailed me the other day interested in buying the Stinson. We met Monday for a test ride but he wasn't sure whether he wanted the Stinson or a new 27 speed Giant OCR road bike. In the end he went for the road bike, that's a nulkulturny move like picking a Coors Light over a PBR, but I am glad he did because if he wanted it Monday I would have sold it to him. After riding to work on Tuesday ... I realized that would have been pure folly to let this bike go. It is my all weather, fixed gear commuter and with the new gearing, it is awesome. I am still a little slow on some of my hills but the bigger chain ring up front gives me a lot more control on descents.
Not sure if I am going to go back to the handlebar bag. It works nicely on the Tandem and I sort of like not having the big gaping bag upfront. I can put my light up front rather on the fork blade and have more room to mount my camera while using this little seat bag to hold stuff that would normally go in my pockets.
