Daamn, just went through your fleet and this one trumps 'em all. Really enjoy your way of building utilitarian, fun rides, keep it up! Also you got some big old panniers there ;)

haha, thanks dude. Right now this one is out of commission as I had to dissolve out a stuck seatpost, and doing so ovalized the st a bit… hopefully soon it'll be back though!

Panniers are just the cheapo Nashbar waterproof rear panniers. They're not anything special, but they get the job done.

what kind of clearance do you have with the 38's? Surly claims they fit 38's but I have 28's on my steamroller right now and I couldn't imagine being able to fit much more tire than a 35.

So: they're slicks, more or less, and knobbies would obviously be a bit bigger, but the 38's fit pretty good with the rear wheel near the back of the dropouts. The only place it's a little close is the seattube, which you can probably see in the photos.

I've seen a pic where someone managed to fit slick 45's on a 'roller, so I'd say the 38's fit pretty well.

haha 45's damn okay. I guess it depends on the rim width too.

definitely. I had 37's on Mavic Open Pros (20mm width) for a little bit, and these are the Archetypes which are 23mm wide.

Only done one ride on them, but it was in sleeting conditions on baltimore streets, and it was super fun
