Thanks... quick question.

Cool... but at what speeds and what sort of gearing are you running. All in all I don't think I would ever go more than 30 miles at a time on a highway (to get to a specific trail north of Seattle)...

Oh, shit.

Perspective I guess.

I dunno... it is what it is. Odd looking and I'm sure it would look "better" with panniers but they kind of serve different functions. I'm at the point now where my bike looks odd without the top box.
