Hi Tommy,

You created a great elegant commuter with probably minimal funds. Nice one 8)

I ride a bike w/ a 200 GS drivetrain (w/ Ultegra bar-end shifters) that works great!

I heard horror stories about bio-pace and 200GS but my knees are fine and the shifts are crisp. Granted, it's set to friction but still...

(Pic. Bike has a Velo saddle on it now)

Nice combination Slimpee. 200GS works fine to me, but the crank is very heavy. It's in the trash now, interested?

Haha, nope, already have one!

The way I see it the bike is heavy as hell anyway so i'm not worried tremendously about the crank weight. That said, if I find myself something cheap and lighter i'd probably swap.

I really like your Panasonic, BTW! I'm strongly considering going back to a straight-bar setup like yours (it started like that before I went and drop-barred it)
