This bike looks so nice! I was wondering how good the deore thumbies work with 2x8. And did you just take the smallest chainring of and your chain won't fall out?

Unfortunately, the Deore thumbies have to operate in friction mode only. That doesn't bother me, though. I took the granny gear off because I rarely use it and I am trying to shave off some weight. She comes in just over 29 lbs. Ugh.

Those bars are really nice! Do you mind if I steal that idea on my build?

Go for it! I like to see cyclists sharing ideas and being creative. Share some photos when you're all done.

Ehh. Braking performance is OK but I've noticed a LOT of squeaking, no matter how I adjust the brake pads. I don't need a bell in traffic...I just ride the rear brakes and everybody turns to look at me! I'm likely to get some Tektro CR720's and see how they work.
