Nice work...looks like he's reciting the squirrel nut prayer to the gods!

Big Joe, Check this link out: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/bik/775827696.html It has a few fundamental things you need. In my opinion they are: - 700x28 (28-35 good tire size for your needs) - buy steel (gives more than Al. and deters thieves b'c heavy) - get a simple Pletscher rear rack ($20 from www.rivbike.com; no frills) to hold your gear - try some French randonneur bars (44cm); if they work on the skinny streets of Paris should work in le'Baltimore. Lemme know what you get. If you like old bikes, I have a good commuting candidate (1975 Raleigh Record 10-sp). How tall are you? KEN [email protected]

An update on the ducks. They're actually herons both on the chainring and front badge. The heron was part of the family shield of the original owner of Raleigh Bicycles - Sir Francis Bowden of Nottingham, England.
