    Here are a couple pictures of my latest commuter rig - a recently completed re-build on the cheap. Went for somewhat of a retro thing.

    I've only been using it now for a couple weeks, but really enjoying its surprisingly smooth ride. It might even be the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden, except for maybe some old beach cruisers when I was younger.

    Sweet. I have a 2006 plain-jane Dew and love it. You'll have lots of fun on your new rig! I like your rear bag, too...I heard those are bomb proof.

    The yellow Typhoon is an awesome match to that frame. Good work! I really appreciate details like that.

    My commuter sans panniers.
    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

    Looks like those bars could be adjusted a tad, are they comfortable as they are?

    Yeah, this bike is too small for me so I've got all sorts of bad adjustments going on with this one. It's just the grocery bike.

    Ah ok, now I see the extended seat post and stem, nevermind.
    I commuted on a small bike for a while too so when I got a bike that fit me it was like breathing fresh air.

    Here's my Dahon Jack. It's not actually commuting here, but on a 24-mile ride from Hartford to Waterbury, where I caught the train to New York for the Five-Borough Bike Tour the next day. You can see that I was carrying clothes for a weekend out of town and rain gear.

    Here is my one and only bike. It is a bianchi volpe circa 1990 I'm guessing. I've been using it for spring/summer/fall commuting for almost 2 years. I'd like to change to wider drop bars and a more upright stem.

    Thanks

    Nitto Dove from Rivendell. Very conservatively priced there. Only drawback is the inside diameter of the bar ends doesn't support bar end shifters or mirrors or the like. However I just took a grinder to the inside and voila, my mirror fit in fine.

    Thanks

    The kickstand was sold under the Specialized name in the 90s but I think its disappeared now
    The German company Hebie carries stands similar to it but my web store doesn't carry them right now and I don't know if anyone does

    New Commuting Tool

    Just finished building it up:



    This is about fun. Still a work in progress, it has already proven itself as a hauler of stuff and child transport machine. The frame is an old Specialized Hardrock frame that I got as part of a complete bike off of a Craigslist seller for $20. I had it media-blasted and powdercoated with a cool, "crinkle-glaze" type of pewter finish. I like it.

    Components:
    Paul front cantilever brakes w/Kool Stops
    Shimano rear V-brakes
    Nondescript seatpost
    Planet Bike cush saddle (will be changed to Brooks B17 asap)
    Nitto radonneur-type bars
    Tektro brake levers
    Nitto "Dirtdrop" stem
    Shimano 105 headset
    Silver bar-end shifter (one)
    Sugino crankset, single
    MKS Touring Pedals
    Nondescript (but bombproof) ATB wheels
    WTB All-Terrainasaurus Tires



    Keen eyes may note that the cable ends need caps (I ran out) and that the Tektros are in quick release mode (my preference for one-finger braking). Haven't decided whether or not to tape the bars. See ya out there, Bob

    Based on your seatpost/stem, you're about 10 feet tall. Nice bike.

    Very nice. I am in the early stages of doing a similar build.

    How do the kids hang on? I can see how one would sit using the foot platforms, but how is it with multiples?

    From the title I thought the post was going to be you introducing yourself.

    Oh, and nice ride! Do you bungee the kids down when you need to transport them?

    Yes--Xtracycle calls them "Footsies". They are cute.

    I think multiples would be a challenge, but my other son could put his feet inside the panniers in a pinch. A single can either grasp the (generous) seatpost or hold on to the edges of the "Snapdeck" (the wooden skateboard-looking thing on top of the Xtracycle extension). I am considering installing tandem handlebars or something similar. The Footsies give them a solid and wide platform for their feet, which helps quite a bit. They can do hands-free without problems.

    So this is the infamous Bristol hill climber. How was that on the 24 mi ride to the Dirty Water? I always wonder about the comfort of folders on long hauls.

    We refer to bars in that configuration as "DUI bars".

    my bike

    Here's my commuter. Townie 21, cannondale panniers, computer, bell, a couple of tail lights, headlight. Just need some fenders.

    Not light, but also not that slow either. A good, comfortable bike with great visibility for my ride to work. I may eventually put some Specialized Nimbus tires on it, but the fatties are really good for the part of my ride where I have to go slightly offroad and over some pretty rough terrain for a bit.
