Craig in Chicago has built his bike up
It doesn’t have the Hammerschmidt installed yet. Sounds like he’s tinkering with a non-production version. Maybe not as nice as the ones you can buy, but it’s something he already has… in case you’re wondering.

….um….best bike ever. Holy crap. Seriously, I couldn’t be more pleased. I’m sure you’ve had the feeling of stepping over a bike for the first time and feeling like it was meant for you. I got that with this bike. i kept telling myself that I’m probably going to have to get used to it, it’s a new bike, it’s going to be different than my old trusty steed, etc. none of that. It felt at once familiar and fresh. It handles just like I want to and fits just like I want to.
That really gave me the warm-fuzzies. 🙂
Note the special upgrade he put on the cable end-
