aMull: are those Syntace Stratos 200 bars? How do you like them?
i feel bad because i don't even have a picture of my bike and i never thought to took some picture of my bike. i wish i could get one so i could post it too.
Been riding for less than a month to campus but here it is. not the first bike that would get stolen from the racks around here. Just put the fenders on.
I've been commuting with a '05 trek 4300 with road tires, great bike, but just received this vintage bike (free!!!), hoping to commute with it. The trek being to upright for the 10 mile each way commute. Though I will be keeping it.
I have spent about 5 hrs and $55 on new tires and brake pads. The ones on it were factory, from the '70s, super hard rubber from the age. This is the first road bike I have every owned, and its a much rougher ride then the trek, but much quicker.
'05 Trek 4300 Xtracycled!!!
'72ish Volkscycle Mark XX 1x6, everyday bike!
'02 Specialized HR comp (for sale!)
Car free, have a Class A license, no auto insurance of my own and drive for a living...
my brand new 2009 Schwinn World Street. ... picked up friday, about 20 miles so far Including the trip home, food run, and a trip to work.. if I wasn't work I would be riding.
Finally getting around to taking some pics of my bicycle.
My new all-season commuter, an old classic updated with newer technology: a 2009 Raleigh Superbe Roadster
I have a B&M Lumotech dyno headlight and Toplight tailight ordered for it...but of course Harris didn't have them in stock so they'll be another week or so (I shoulda tried Peter White).
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
Finally, somewhere to post photos of my "baby."
I have an Assama "Luddite" I forget what size it is, I'm almost 5'9 and female (yes, I got the standard frame.) It came "naked" no kickstand, fenders etc. I added lights, fenders, kickstand, panniers, under-seat bag, a bell, computer and drink cage. I LOVE MY BIKE! Before this bike I was riding the 10+ year old rusted half to death poor old mtn bike my mom got me for some birthday way back when, which I sadly neglected.
my old bike:
My new bike, the day I got her. She's made of steel.
With new panniers
One more, detail of the hardware I added up front: Very cheap! Bell cost $2.50, computer cost $13, light cost what, $7? Came with battery, too. I got the majority of my bike stuff at MEC.
This is my commuter.
1989 Gazelle Trim Trophy with Shimano 600 7speed and Wolber Profil 36 spoke wheels.
Added a Tubus Logo rack, 35 mm bluemels, Basta backlight and Cateye frontlight. Changed the stem into Cinelli XE, ITM handlebar and put on some new Schwalbe Lugano 700x23 mm.
Rides like a rocket.
