    Well, living in Los Angeles means that even though the dollar is stronger in the states, shipping wouldn't be worth it. But, we are going to Ottawa/Gatineau in November so maybe I'll get something for the bike I don't have yet Just went bike shopping today.

    Here's mine. I took the pictures this weekend after finally getting around to washing the bike. It's a 2004 Specialized Sirrus Comp, kitted out in summer commuting trim. Around here the fenders could come off in the summer, but it's more work than it's worth.

    Cool thanks, that triangle thing on the left of the rear wheel is a flag holder the previous owner had installed. Its gone now, just put a rear rack for my panniers.

    I love the white walls too, only $15 each, 27"x1.25 at biketiresdirect.com. I'm lucky enough to live within 5 miles of there office/warehouse, instant gratification.

    This thread is great bike porn.

    Are these the tires you bought?

    The description says tan/skinwall, but the photo looks like a whitewall. I didn't see any other whitewalls.

    New (used) commuter

    I'm still Fred - but I have to admit I love the simplicity of this steel frame, single speed (flip flop hub - haven't tried it as a fixie yet) bike. Bought it used off Craigslist and rode it to work this morning. It's fast, too - but the 30 degree hill I have to deal with is a bear on this thing. Worth it for the ride the rest of the time. I confess, I love the ride of the steel frame...
    Won't replace my road bike, but for commuting it is my new favorite. I'll be adding a rack for my panniers and possibly replacing the saddle.

    Nice shot, nice bike but small nitpick, you cut off the bottom of the front tire in the photo.

    In this case, this is an artistic device. By cutting off the bottom of the front tire like that, it creates and imbalance, creating a sense of instability or movement. The bike is moving off the front of the image--a very immediate and dynamic effect. This, I fear, you will only learn in your advanced photography class. ;-)

    I think it's the equivalent of cutting off someone's feet or the top of their head in a photo...alas, there will be no advanced class for me.

    Its these ones - http://www.biketiresdirect.com/pscpp..._x_1_14/pp.htm

    It says off-white, and I got alittle dirt on them when installing, and they still look pretty white.

    On its first commute, 5am on a great Portland morning.

    yay!

    just got it out of the shop, they installed the fork and headset.

    i went in with a threaded fork and they gave me this one and threadless for the price of the repair. surprised, but happy




    will install fenders and maybe get a rack or pannier rack.

    might also convert to drops with barend shifters.

    <<<<Pics coming soon>>>>

    2005 Bianchi Milano 120th Anniversary (Grey paint) with mods:
    - Flat bars (MUCH improved riding position for the commute)
    - Barends from my spare parts bin - great climbing and cruising position
    - Topeak Explorer rack with trunk bag. No more backpack for me!
    - Planet Bike fenders
    - SPD mountain bike pedals (from my spare parts bin)

    I initially wanted to get rid of this bike because I felt it wasn't up to the task for my commute. Once I changed out the handlebars, it became a completely different bike. It is amazing how riding position can influence a bike's "feel". Now I'm content to ride the bike until the Nexus 8 falls apart, at which time I'll build up my cyclocross commuter and use the Bianchi as a project bike.

    <<<Pics soon>>>>

    Nice looking ride. Can you put a rack on it? And what size is the frame?

    thanks! i think it's a 16".

    it has one set of eyelets so i can put fenders on or a rack... though i will probably do one of those seatpost racks and just run fenders.

    one thing you can't really see is the red retroreflective tape on the seatstays. i'll get some black reflective tape for the wheels too. i'll also mount my superflashes.
