    My Rob Roy (Bluebelle I think I'll call it ) is complete (initial build anyway, pedals and chain to be swapped and fenders added when rain comes)

    (pic below)

    I'll try to get a nice daylight picture today/soon.

    Wow that brodie is the coolest! I like those SRAM shifters a lot too, I wonder why Campy and Shimano don't run the shift cables under the tape as well? (Or do they?)

    My Miyata TripleCross:

    - Standard Shimano Exage 300 Components
    - Cannondale Computer
    - Cannondale front and rear lights (front not mounted in this picture I believe, but the mount is there)
    - Fizik seat
    - New tires (forgot the brand at the moment.. nothing special)
    - Side Mirror
    - Rear Rack with bags
    - Frame bag
    - Lock "rack" :: don't know the exact term for it

    Pretty basic bike, Im not one of those Uber-customizers. I just bought enough to get a great set up to get my anywhere across town, as I am trying to commute more with other means than my car. Gas prices are too high, and hey why not help out the environment while Im at it.

    I'm sure the whole bike is worthy of praise but one thing stands out for me. I love those yellow spokes. Beautiful.

    I too love that Brodie! Too bad that build is way out of my pricerange

    As for the shifters, Campy runs the shift cables under the tape, but Shimano does not. I don't know why, though. I definitely prefer the Campy/SRAM look more.

    Campy also runs their shift cables like that, but Shimano doesn't (although it's been said that the next Dura Ace will).

    Anyway, yeah, that's a tasty bike. Not sure if I've seen yellow spokes before, but they look good on that frame.

    My new commuter, a 2008 Brodie Infinity. Had to wait nearly 2 months to get it, but it's been worth it so far.

    thanks!

    The helmet was inside. I figured if I was just riding up and down my block (dead end road), I'd be ok. Luckily I was, but probably dumb to ride without it. I'll have to post pics of me and the bike in full commuter gear next week when I put the rack and fenders on it, as well as me with my 3W CREE headlight on my helmet Fully geeked out!

    I absolutely love the new Tiagra crankset. Goregous! How are you liking those discs?

    You can run Shimano shifters under the tape if you use Nokon or some other super stiff housing. It comes out the side of the shifter and then you can route it back 180 deg under the cabling. Not the ideal solution like SRAM, but it's a solution if you've already got Shimano. Campy is more like SRAM, but I don't like the thumb levers, so that ruled them out. The SRAM shifts really nice, and was easier to setup than an Ultegra 10spd, IMO. Lighter and cheaper than Ultegra too...

    Thanks for the comments on the Brodie!

    My Mule

    I added a box to the back because it is easier just to throw my back pack in and ride than mess with panniers. The back pack was needed because I had to secure my bike a few blocks from where I worked, and it was easier to carry my clothes that way. Then I added huge reflectors to the back of the box because my morning commute was before sun rise.

    Both you guys should look into the nashbar grocery bag pannier or the transit/performance one. I had your set up and switched and have never looked back. I just throw my work bag in the grocery bag pannier and take off. The lower center of gravity makes your bike handle better and topple less often when leaving it unattended. Just a tip.

    The Nashbar townie is always on sale for $10.

    thx pinkpowa. Very comfortable. As good or better than the all steel one it replaced. Very relaxed stance as you can see. Theft is a concern but security seems good.

    Hey bsyptak. That sure is a nice bike. What kind of tires do you have?

    They are Ritchey WCS SpeedMax cross in blue. The tires came on the original bike and I'm guessing they are 5-7 years old. Only the black Pro version are still sold. Very unfortunate, I love the colored ones and I think others would too, at least in the standard colors other tires come in. I was lucky enough to find a future replacement NOS pair on Ebay a few months ago, so I should be good for the next 5 years. Hopefully they'll come out with colors again someday. Especially since cross bikes are becoming so popular.
