glad i could help...
Finally got my rig set up... a '99 Giant Sedona. As with all guys still looking for a few more doodads to "finish" things up, but will do for a while.. A Nashbar rack is under an Ascent rack bag and a pair of Inertia designs panniers complete the gear. Plenty of room for pair of shoes, change of clothes and a towel, lunch and camera,plus tire tools and change for the bus!
Still above freezing this morning but with a stubborn headwind--harder work than usual :)
My recent upgrade (aside from the wheelset that I am absolutley LOVING) was from an older SIS 6spd cassette to a less older XT 11-30 8spd. I was liking that 30t low gear this AM (still on the middle chainring though).
And the cagers were (mostly) pretty well-behaved. All-in-all, not a bad deal.
EDIT: Oops! Sorry all. This was supposed to be in the "How was your commute..." thread.
I changed the '97 steel frame I had here to a (probably) '93 carbon Giant Cadex frame. Also changed the setup from 1x5 to 2x8.
Here's my brand new commuter, ready for some nice spring weather :D
So my guess is riding in Florida has improved. How do you deal with the humidity? Anyone alive out there? :)
Here is mine.
1990 something Bianchi Premio
nice bike :) Still have not experienced riding a road bike. :) Probably should do that sometime in the near future.
Here's my commuter/do-it-all bike:
And a couple of fun pics from the local trails:
I figured that one out alright :) I have always rode MTB or variations. I wonder though if I ride a road bike will I ever go back to mtb :) Only time will answer that one.
Keep the pictures going ... great ideas just by viewing.
Here is my Specialized Expedition in commute dress http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/b...3/100_1448.jpg http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/b...3/100_1449.jpg http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/b...3/100_1450.jpg
I bought a 7.5 a few months ago, and love it so far. what rack is that? mine seems too short, and angles towards the seat post
everyone seems to have shiny new rigs so i'll post my re-purposed 20 year old roadbike, i only go 5 miles each way so it doesn't need to be all that fancy
i am missing having gears on the hills though
edit: yes my front brake routes to the left, i came from motorcycles and i can't get passed having the front brake on the left bar
edit: yes its missing the lock for the stem, gotta find it
Here is my latest ride, AKA Ninja bike
07 Novara Buzz
Here's my commuter, a '91 Bridgestone CB-Zip. I posted a pic last year, but since then I have (finally) fitted it with fenders. I didn't need them before, because I never rode it in the rain. Since then, I've realized that it will probably outlast me, so I might as well use it even when the roads are wet. (I still try to avoid riding in the rain).
Here's what I do my 5 minute commute on:
Just finished turning the old road bike into my new commuter. Added the Tubus Logo rack, upgraded the headset to a Shimano 105, new Salsa Stem, and a Nitto Noodle handlebar. Just wish the weather was a bit nicer to for riding.
