    My winter commuter, made from a 1980 Schwinn LeTour frame and a bunch of mismatched parts.

    My lunch time errand runner, a '92 GT Passage. The wife caught a guy about to throw it in the dumpster, had him load it in the back of her car. Took me four evenings to tear it down, clean up and rebuild. Have added a rear rack and carrier pack since the pic was taken - Blumel Popular fenders are coming in the near future, once I get the alloys for my touring bike.

    I am a lover of the poprad. Nice setup with the saddle rack and everything else. What kind of rack you rolling with?

    Thanks! It is a Blackburn road rack that i pulled off another bike. The poprad doesn't have seatstay rack mounts so we fashioned a special mount that attaches to the seatstay bridge. It has to bend to go around the brake cable. It's kind of a pain but fully functional now.

    My commuter

    07 Motobecane Elite FS
    Has stock off the shelf components except for the pedals, I've added Forte Campus 2-sided pedals.
    Shimano Acera 21 Speed, PushButtonShifters, 6061 Aluminum ComfortTuned frame, RST Magnesium TR Pro Suspension Fork 700c, Forged Aluminum V Brakes, Silver Aluminum Double Wall Rims, Stainless Spokes 36fr/36r, M-Wings hubs, Forged aluminum Crankset, M-Wings Aluminum Bar, ComfortAdjust Stem and Micro-adjust ComfortSuspension Seatpost, RoadLight 700cx40c tires.
    This is a work in progress. I've added a Topeak Explorer OS rack with U-lock, Dahon rear light mounted on the rack with a Planted Bike Super Flash on each side of the rear wheel. I have 4 different Topeak QR trunk bags, a Sigma Mirage light set and Planet Bike Beamer 3 LED set on strobe. A Topeak Mule front pannier rack and 2 set of panniers, Topeak and InTransit, finish off what I have so far.
    (Sorry about the crappy picture. Cheap camera and I'm trying to learn Photoshop so I can edit photo size.)

    Miyata 610 commuter

    I was taking pictures today for another project and threw this together of my recently put together 83 Six Ten. The frame is way too small so I did what I could. I'm planning on doing a few 40 mile rounds trips a week on it when the weather breaks. This will be my first time bike commuting but I've put some long rides on the bike and it's pretty forgiving.
    There's a PB superflash and a Fenix L2D for the lighting. Some MKS pedals, an army medic bag, northroad bars, ESI chunky grips, and other assorted stuff I could find to get it into shape.

    There's some discussion in the thread below. I feel like I'm a bit slower but my hands and wrists were fine after a 40 mi and 30 mi ride. I have no experience with drops (looking to change that) but these were a big improvement over a MTB flatbar with barends.

    first commute for me this season. First commute on a non recumbent bike in a few years. Still have some kinks to work out with the bike, which is an early 70's raleigh grand prix.

    I looked at those last year. Glad to see they come in a nicer color for '08. A couple of "deal breakers" for me were the fact that it had a grip shifter and I don't like taking wheels off with internal hubs. Silly reasons I suppose, but I'm happy with the '07 Kentfield I got

    I finally got around to updating the pics of some of my bikes, notably the commuters.

    Winter Commuter

    Here is my winter commuter. It is a 70's era (I think) road bike, labeled Tour de France Jacques Anquetil. The local used bike shop (LUBS) built it up as a single speed for me and I've since done a few modifications on it, such as the newer pedals and the moustache handlebars. There are still a few things I want to do on it, I'm thinking of replacing the Mafac brake levers with cyclocross levers, primarily for ease of maintenace. The Mafac Racer brakes are still fine though and I'll be keeping them.

    Hey aMull. Nice to see another Iron Horse.They seem to be the black sheep of the bike world. I know mine is a damn nice bike.I couldn't even find a review for mine, an 07 Adventure anywhere on line, which really didn't matter because I test rode it several times, and loved it. It seems some business decisions made by the company made them arch enemies of small bike shops. At least thats what I have heard. Riders love em, smaller lbs hate them. Someone correct me if I'm ill informed.If anyone here has the full story, I'd be interested in reading it. It's too bad you don't see more of them around. Mine is a bombproof little bike that will go anywhere.

    I converted my 2007 Raleigh to the Sturmey Archer 3 speed SRF3 hub (their new version) at the time of purchase in November 2007. I just paid $470 for the bike on sale plus $230 for SA hub/better wheels upgrade (Sunrims CR18/105 front wheel hub/DT Swiss spokes). The Brooks saddle to top it of and here is the modern recreation of the classic Raleigh Clubman:
    http://retroraleighs.com/clubman-kohler.html
    The SA hub is very small & most people think the bike is a fixie. It also adds only about 2lb to the weight of the bike unlike Shimano 8 speed which is 4lb and quite large. SA is also less expensive and easier to service. I also figured that I do not need more than 3 speeds in New York. I am VERY happy with the setup. I also have Bianchi Volpe which is basically a 27 speed version of this Raleigh, Surly Pacer with Ultegra/Campagnolo Proton wheels. This Raleigh is used almost exclusively this winter.

    Here's mine: a Raleigh Marathon, circa 1984. Got it free. It's very tall.

    This was supposed to be a 'before' shot, but there's no 'after' yet since my Nashbar rear rack came with bolts that are too small for the eyelets above the rear axle. I probably just completely embarrassed myself with incorrect terminology there... : )



    EDIT: Anyone else with the same rack as Wheels4 above, can you post a close-up of your rack mounting? Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    great to see so many interesting bikes, so many modifications to make it just right that is great. Still only using my Giant Rincon 21" for everything, be nice to have a bike specific but just not viable yet. Thanks for sharing they are good photos, full of ideas.
    When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

    Just replaced the standard hybrid bars with Nashbar Trekking bars. This Trek T-80 Navigator came complete with integrated lights, rack, compact pump, fenders, chain-guard, kick stand, integrated lock, and bell. The last year they sold it in the USA was 2005. I bought this in the summer of 2006 as a leftover.

    Thanks! It appears I was doing it right after all, but the bolts are just too small. I'll have to visit the hardware store for some washers and nuts.
