    I do not know what they are called exactly. The guy in the bike shop told me they are bullhorns, but who knows???? They were given to me by this old man on my bike path to work who works on bikes like every morning and fixes old bikes for goodwill. All I know is they are old and made from steel AND just perfect for me.

    However I think the older rangers are of a lot better quality than the new ones though.


    What is the heal clearance like on those 'city-box' paniers? I've been considering buying them.

    For me I wear size 9 shoes and and I have a couple inches and have yet to bump it and I have it mounted slightly forward on my rack. I would say it still varys though depending on the bike/ sizing and mounting.

    Snafu-76

    This is one of the most ridden bikes in my herd. She was bought off craigslist for $25. I think I have somewhere around $300 in her now. I believe this is the best setup yet I have done to her. I have only had her since Feb 2008 and she has had 5-6 setups.

    Very nice craigslist find. Looks like you have a perfect commuter setup there.

    Why thank you. Do you ride the single speed on long rides? I have a Fixie and I would not dream of riding it over a 6 mile route. My knees kill me after 2. Plus I would be scared to death bombing down some of these hills in Colorado.

    You should really check your set up on your fixed gear... if your knees hurt after two miles there is something wrong there.

    Descending hills in the winter on a fixed gear is a wonderful experience and the control is amazing.

    I ride a fixed gear for work (several actually) and have done some fairly long fixed rides and been happy as happy can be with the bike.

    This thread probably has some of the nicest bikes on this forum...

    My commute is now a pretty short one and it might take me all of ten minutes to get to work but then I spend the day on my bike working as a courier.

    This is my primary work bike...

    The lights come off when I am working (folks WILL steal anything) and there are no QR's on the bike... and I might be one of the only guys on the street rocking a bell.

    The pink toe strap is there to remind me of some very special people.

    Thanks for the compliments, I am in love with it and can't wait to get it finished in the next few weeks. I grabbed those pics when i was out riding around working on a cycling art project(unrealted to the surly pics) and i just thought that i should take advantage of the location and get a few shots off, I was also waiting for it to start raining because i wanted to try out the fenders in rain haha, maybe one of the few times i've been on my bike and wanting it to rain haha

    More beautiful pics to come in the next few weeks!

    My recently acquired bike. It's Trek 1220, I plan on adding fenders and larger tires.. Most likely will see if 25's fit the fenders. Bike handles great, traded a Trek hardtail MTB for the bike, even swap...

    Laser *** Cannondale Commuter

    Here's my daily commuter. Got the bike off of craigslist for $100, Cannondale H400, then added the bontrager interchange rear rack, planet bike hardcore hybrid fenders (with cascadia flaps), planet bike 5-blinky rear and 3-led lights, seat pack, aero bars, bell, upgraded the seat (planet bike)... and added the milk crate (Hood Dairy). It's fast and fun! [Note the laser *** LED head light hehe )]

    My latest craiglist snag for $45.00. Alpine Guadalupe. Nice stout steel frame that handles real good. I washed it up, wd40'd everything and oiled the chain real good. Put on some Kenda tires that I got from Mr Christopher, new brake pads, a comfy mongoose seat that I had in the garage and a Bell led headlight. She's ready to roll! I've been using a backpack to get to work but I think this one's gonna get rack and panniers put on. I like that nice green color to it.

    Dude... that pic is amazing. Who/How took/did they take it? I mean... WOW. Looks almost like it's been rendered on a computer or something. Like, straight out of a videogame.

    Sorry. This is a 2008 Gary Fisher Simple city 8. It comes stock with the custom front basket and fenders. I put on a cheap rack and grocery panniers,. It's got the new shimano internal 8. I also put an adjustable stem so if I'm cruising with friends I can get more upright. A recent addition is a thudbuster seatpost with is great!
