    Hi there! I'm backing to post some pics of my bike..

    The buy was originally for my last job, when I had a route, to visit 4 supermarkets in my city (riding about 3 miles per day)...

    Now I'm in other job, 2 blocks from home, but I'm keeping riding, it's very fun.

    My rides are short (about 10~15 miles max.) and generally by the weekend (less traffic :),

    I didn't build the bike, but changed the rims and tires for the actuals. I'm thinking on get a suspension fork for it...

    Cheers from Brazil! :grin5:

    Thanks.

    The tires I'm using are from a local brand named "Levorin":

    You may take a look on Pirelli Daytona tires. They are better.

    I had a pair of those on my old bike (not MB), but I didn't find them in my city to buy, so I purchased this similar.



    Thanks.
    The place is really beautiful. I didn't born here, but I like it very much.

    I have a few photos of some beaches and landscapes in my flickr, check them out:

    Hi Marcelo - Is the bike a Caloi? They sell those in the States.
