I love this bike. It’s a Lyon Big Fish steel cyclocross frame created by Jeff Lyon in southeast Oregon. This bike can handle everything from trails, loose dirt roads, to pavement. It’s a steady, balanced bike that is comfy even for long road rides. I’ve also used this bike to pull my daughter in a Weehoo iGo. It’s the one bike that can do about everything. I built this bike up before having kids and the photos above show that progression from my working days, to post pregnancy to the transformation back to and beyond my pre-preg fitness level.
I stumbled upon my Lyon bike at Recycled Cycles in Seattle. Just happened to be my size. The story goes: boyfriend bought it for girlfriend, relationship went in the crapper, and thus frame lands at the coolest used cycling shop. Also scored at Recycled Cycles were a hand build Dave’s wheelset, XTR hubs with rims modified to 26” for the Sea Otter Classic criterium. Used once then sold.
I then bought parts here and there and built the Lyon up with a straight bar, 1” tires, road compact drivetrain, & V brakes. I rode it like this for a long time but when living in CA got a bit of the Rivendell influence so slapped on a moustache handlebar & STI shifters.  Yeah it works. Works great. 
The tricky part of a moustache handlebar is getting the height correct & this meant converting the headset to threaded versus threadless. The great folks at Aaron’s in West Seattle cut some threads on my steer tube & put on a nice Nitto stem. That’s been the Lyon bike’s set up since then. The 1” tires have worn out and are tough to find so I usually run my Seattle street tires, Schwalbe 1.35”. Recently I threw on some Panaracer Fire 1.9” for riding on Acadia’s carriage trails. This huge range of tires all work, making this bike super versatile.
This bike has rode the Chilly Hilly on Bainbridge Island, the East Bay hills in California, the Trek Across Maine, Mount Cadillac & carriage trails in Acadia, toured around the East End of Long Island, NY, & pulling my daughter on the Down East Sunrise Trail. I have a road bike and mountain bike, but the Lyon still is the go to bike for many rides.
