COMMUTER BIKE OF THE WEEK...

...belongs to El Hefe, the Big Boss Man, Numero Uno, Steve Hawley (the man not the myth). This is a 93 cm Soma Cross frame (originally built for Manute Bol) with matching Vicious CX fork. Every part on this bike came from the warehouse, but we're still awaiting payment on this puppy as Steve's "in lieu of payment" offerings of a) magic beans b) a healthy milking cow c) a 2005 Next full suspension mountain bike with speed wheels purchased from Craigslist were VIGOROUSLY rebuffed by our accounting department. But seriously people (with a nod of the hat to Man Bear Pig), Steve commutes into work on this puppy. It's not going to win any criteriums, but it's made for the ritual abuse of gnarled Lexington roads and the merciless weather of the deep South.

The cockpit, where the "magic happens", is equipped with Thomson stem, Cateye computer, Ritchey bar, Paul Levers and Cane Creek headset!

Campy Proton wheels, Schwalbe Marathon tires, Truvativ cranks, Planet Bike rear light and WTB saddle make this the most diverse and possibly most schizophrenic bicycle ever assembled!

Don't let Shaq see this one.

Good job blurring out the top secret prototype wellgo platform pedals. I would hate for Velonews to get wind of those before they are ready for release.

Wellgo??? Surely you jest!
