The new setup (pics)

I promised these a while ago but never got around to getting decent photos.

Here we go.

The new SunLite rack rocks. Highly adjustable.

It even has a spring clip, which I've found to be handy for things like getting the mail. I think these clips were originally designed to hold the center panel of saddlebag panniers.

The Trek Sideloader I got to replace my hold Headland CMT wedge pack. This thing holds a lot of stuff!

In the main pocket, 3 spare CO2 cartridges (upper left), Park MTB3 (background) and Genuine Innovations UltraFlate 2 (foreground). I have some park tire levers in the other flap, and some Zogics CitraWipes on the underside.

The back pocket holds my spare tube and patches. The rear loop provides a great mounting point for the Trek tail light.

I mounted the Planet Bike SuperFlash on the rack. It's REALLY bright and might even rival the DiNotte 140R.

I rode to church and back today since it was so nice. Took a little detour on the way home, picking up more than 18 miles for the day. Wish I could have ridden more.

Damn Noah!

What size your frame? That rig looks so hot I think I am going to have to come to Kansas City and make off with it for my own use if it's 47cm frame. [Teasing]

Yay! I'm glad the word is getting out on these. I've used these since they came out.

Sirrus: Close enough, it's 54cm, I think it's one of the shortest frame sizes they made for the last production run of the 1000/1200 in 2006. It's basically a teenager sizes bike. I think Trek dropped to 650b wheels on all the sizes smaller than this one. Tim's son rides a 2006 Trek 1000 that's smaller than mine with 650b.

Anonymous: by "These" do you mean the PB Superflash?

Very nice, well equipped bike. It is definitely a ride which will make the miles come easier and be more pleasurable.

The Planet Bike SuperFlash lights are excellent, insanely bright, and designed to make you been seen.

I agree with the others ... the Twelve is looking fine indeed. Looks like it's much better equipped for commuting now.
