    It's still going, I have been riding it every day to work. I ordered a shifter and have a few other parts waiting to go on but it's otherwise done. I don't think the shifter is getting here till December so I'll have to take some better pics of the bike for now and update later on with the other stuff.

    Re: B.M.B. -JohnThomas Sorrels- update: Done

    Other than a rack it it done. I got a shifter, routed the cable and lamp cord through the frame and wrapped the handle bars. I took my camera with me today in hopes of getting some pictures on the way home but it was too dark so I snapped a few shots at work...

    Man, that looks sweet, those bars, I think I like 'em. Have you been riding it a lot? Looks comfortable, yet wicked sporty.

    Re: B.M.B. -JohnThomas Sorrels- 5 month update

    I've been riding the bike for a while and decided to change the bars and seat.

    I had these bars and stem on a different bike and bought the grips off of ebay, I had to shorten the right grip for the twist shifter...

    I won this Brooks B68 off ebay and love it, it's so much more comfortable than the previous seat(s) I had on this bike...

    Other than that the bikes working great and I think the new parts not only are more comfortable but look nicer too.
