I use a Sailrite Ultrafeed LSZ-1 sewing machine and it works great. I also buy thread, sewing tools, and some materials from them. They're having a photo contest that I've entered for sewing projects done using their products. So feel free to vote for my picture since most of the other ones are pictures of boring sailboats with bad scenery!

In other news, the commuter bike got some new wheels since I found a great deal on craigslist on an unusual wheelset: DT 240s singlespeed non-disc hubs laced with fancy DT spokes to Stans 355 rims. The rear hub was a prototype that never saw production. So I got a really light wheelset that can go tubeless if I want to, both front and rear hubs are dishless for a stronger wheel, but I have to run only 5 cogs in the back (from an 8 speed cassette) but that's enough for almost everything I ride. The wheelset and changing back to a v-brake up front saved a whopping 2.8 pounds with the same heavy 40 mm touring tires still.
