2007 Trek 1500; 2008 Raleigh One-Way
"R[ide] with the swift, in the hopes of one day finishing second." -John J. McCloy
Here's my ride. I commute about 2 days/wk. 32 mile RT...most of it on the Henry Hudson Greenway. Very comfortable, but heavy. I added the Axiom rack, Forte Campus pedals and Profile bar ends. Planning to ride this on the 5 boro tour this weekend. I'm pretty jacked up about it.
Schwinn Traveler w/ Nexus 8sp.
This bicycle is meant to replace my old 68cm Bridgestone 400 that broke on the seat mast tube and also on the rear triangle. Luckily this bicycle is just as tall. I have a 44tooth chainring because I was thinking of installing a Hebie Chainglider. This bicycle will replace my Giant Cypress as my winter bicycle and I will be a two bicycle person.
It's the Jolly Red Giant! 68?!

Yes, it's really clean for a daily commuter because the picture was taken immediately after a rare wash.
I like to ride bikes. I miss living in the city though, where it was all a bike's ride away. City dwellers: appreciate it. :D

Read More: Bicycling With KnatchwaWhen 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
Here are two newer of my my bike, which however i will be replacing as i don't like the shocks, or the gearing, or the handlebars.
That is one serious mudflap on the front of the Iron Horse! Homemade?

and my sun bike:
I live in the Pacific Northwest, hence the fenders and the rain jacket strapped to the rack on the sun bike.
