This is without a doubt one of the sexiest bikes I have ever seen. Makes me want to build an internal 8 speed bike. I also like how you used the nitto lamp holder for a shift holder that is a very nice touch. All in all this is one of my favorite bikes to look at.

Hey! Thanks! I'm happy you like it! When I was speccing it I knew I wanted a kind of classic looking bike that was utilitarian enough for groceries and commuting but also had nice clean lines like a single speed. Getting the shifter into the plan was a challenge, but the Nitto lamp holder works really well. It's not the most ergonomic but because you can shift at a standstill with a hub, it becomes less of an issue.
