    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.

    So my guess is riding in Florida has improved. How do you deal with the humidity? Anyone alive out there?
    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

    Try it, you'll love it! Everything else you ride will feel like a tank afterwards.

    I force myself to ride my MTB because I paid $420 for it and I got my road bike for free. So it just seems that I should be riding the bike I worked all last summer for.

    It's a good mtb but you just can't compete with a road bike!

    I have paced a road bike a few times, when I use to commute Salinas to Monterey everyday. Work eight hours and ride back home. To pace and to keep pace now that is two different stories. I will admit I keep trying though because it makes sense to me. An MTB definitely has comfort over the road though besides the riser bars.

    See I don't think risers are any more comfy than the tops of drops.

    Very nice! I almost bought a mid-90's Campione d'Italia to commute on. It was very similar to your Premio except it had Campy Mirage ergo shifters on it. I was a bit concerned with clamping on fenders and the reliability of Ergo shifters at the time, so I passed on it. I'm still kind of kicking myself for passing that up.

    Thanks. I have been out of riding bikes sense I was 13 so i am learning everything over again. I am about to put some fenders on mine in a few weeks when I get the extra dough. Over all, I am very happy with the bike, and I got it for 175.00, which isn't bad if you ask me.

    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).

    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.

    These aren't great photos of my ride, but you get the idea. I'll take better pics when the lighting is better and maybe after I clean her up a bit.

    That's a lot of seatpost exposed. You sure the frame fits?
