Lol. Not if it fell off. I've seen what happens when a PBJ gets tangled up in spokes. I don't want to think about what teriaki chicken would do.

Here's the cup holder I have on my cruiser:

I have to confess, even with a lid, the coffee will spout like a geyser if I hit a bump right. Need to get one of those little sticks that plugs the hole in the lid.

Got the chi-ching bell ... now all I need is the java holder.

Also took some time to try to true the wheels. Oy ... that's trying to herd kittens.

Well, finally got around to building out that cheap $80 Schwinn Fastback frame I got from Nashbar some time ago. Here is the result:



I had the wheels, handlebar, seat post, seat, crank, chain and stem. Had to scrounge around for the other stuff.

I like it. It fits right between my old Fastback comp and the Scott CR-1 in terms of weight and ride. The fit's actually pretty sweet, too.

VV: Yup. Aluminum triangle and carbon seat and chainstays.

VMac: I have 4 road bikes, one MTB and a hybrid. One of the 4 road bikes is a beater I use for commuting, so it kinda doesn't count.

The other 3 are road worthy and bikes I would take on any ride.

An 11 year old Schwinn Fastback Comp (still love that bike)
A 2008 Scott CR1 Pro (still love that one too).
The new Fastback Pro (not in love yet, but I'm getting a crush on it).

It's nice to have 2 decent road bikes. That way, when one is on the fritz or in need of adjustment, there is always the other. The only reason I built this bike is because the frame was so cheap and I needed a project to fiddle around with.
