Here's a pic of my new Atlantis. Lugged steel is alive and well! With just a switch of tires, I have a great touring/randonneur bike or a off road 29" machine. I love it so far-it's been cold here(Minnesota), so I haven't been able to ride it as much as I would like.

Looks nice. Wild bar setup. I have a similar bar, but I think wider along the top. I think you're really going to like the versatility of this rig.

Congrats,

I'm thinking of doing something similar with my rig...what are those tires? (brand, size, etc.)

The tires are IRC Mythos CX Slicks-700 x 38. Your LBS should be able to order them through QBP>
Had mine two years next month, still love it.cory

It really is a great all-around bike. I've done everything from centuries to fire trails with only a tire swap, and it works everywhere.
FWIW, the best tires I've tried for all-around, everyday use are Panaracer Paselas in 700x35. They roll out nicely at 80-85 psi or you can let them down to 65 for dirt roads and gravel.

if you can have only one bike! Nice set up! I have a couple cross bikes that remind me of this, 700c and they are ideal for all around cycling. Excellent choice and nice job!
