I just found your bike thanks to google image when searching sugino mighty pictures.
An unconventional build, colors, completely dirty, without "full something" bulls**t. So much personality! My definition of a daily, Favorite!

I keep returning to this bike over and over again. It's such a beauty in all its' simpleness. A bike built to be used with an owner that has the good taste to keep it as it is without the need to improve something that already works fine. Would be great to see a recent pic of it.

Hey, thanks! I'm glad you like it. I'll be sure to take new pictures of the bike when I finish moving all my stuff back to NYC. A few parts were stolen and a few wore out, so it looks a little different these days, but not much. Still my baby!

28c Vittoria Randonneurs, yeah. I've ridden them in the snow and rain in Seattle, New York, and Montana, and they've served me well.

This is very nice! And that Makino fork looks awesome on this! Gives it a tighter front end.

lull says:

Thanks for the tip--I bet it is. 53/17 is my sweet spot for city riding, but I'll definitely be getting something smaller if I ever get make it to the 'drome.

Great looking bike! Especially with that fork! The only thing is... that stem looks really silly.

Posted about 7 years ago

lull

lull says:

Thanks! And I think the stem looks fine, but, more importantly, it's what's comfortable, so.

SillyGooseCookie says:

I think a 100mm stem and bars would with less reach would look nicer. But the ADB-X's are so damn cool. Have you gotten the bike fitted to you?

Posted about 7 years ago

lull

lull says:

Nope, but I've been riding it for almost five years now, through several changes, dramatic and otherwise, and've settled happily on this setup. The long bars and short stem provide me with a nice combination of pull and twitchy steering that suits my riding style. I've tried countless cockpit arrangements, and've settled on this and the 90mm Jaguar/3" riser combo with which I occasionally swap it out when I'm feeling a little more laid-back.

SillyGooseCookie says:

Well, I guess it's good as long as it works for you. If you ever want a 70mm Cinelli 1A (the original one, not the remake) hit me up. I still can't get over how good that fork looks on the bike.

Thanks for the offer. And yeah, the fork's a beaut.
