    This list got too long: several ‘bents, an urban utility bike, and a dahon D7 that my daughter has absconded with.

    That's an Ibera thermos. http://www.amazon.com/Ibera-Co-Ltd-S.../dp/B0012Q9TO4

    It has its own mounting hardware (that the handle slides in), but I am not using it. That's a normal bottle cage on my bike. It fits well in a normal bottle cage. It works best with the kind of cage with no front because then the handle is straight out, but you can turn it sideways and it fits fine in most basic wire cages.

    He's cheating! I have the same thermos and it's designed to plug into a plastic holder that mounts to the water bottle bosses on the frame. The handle on the thermos slides into the little holder

    He, no doubt in an effort to get style points, ignored that ugly and inelegant option and bought a road bike water bottle holder and found that it fit.

    I think it works, splendidly. Good show.

    That's the Ultra Light Bike Mirror: http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-Light-Bi.../dp/B0011VQJU2

    Rivendell just calls it the German Mirror: http://www.rivbike.com/search/run?query=m (You probably should be able to get it at a cheaper place than Rivendell, though).

    I like it. My options are limited with my handlebar situation. I tried a couple of the cheap chrome mirrors that look like they could be made for mo-peds because they would work with my bars, but I didn't like them. This one will shake a lot unless you really tighten it. I've used the Mirrycle with past bikes, and this one is better in some ways. This mirror is much lighter. I felt the Mirrycle (bolt in the bar end kind) had a mount that was perhaps more solid, and allowed easy adjustment even while tight enough not to jiggle. I've seen these German mirrors mounted horizontal for a very wide view, but I can see farther back this way, and it wouldn't really work on my bike the horizontal way anyway. But the shape is better than a round mirror for getting what you want to see with a smaller footprint, although it is not as big as some of the other popular mirrors on the market.

    That's stock. The paint seems to scrape off easier than I would expect, but perhaps it's normal. I am fine with the color. I don't want my bike to be too colorful or bright. I know many folks think it is hideous.

    Man that is Sharp! What bar tape do you have? It matches the honey saddle about the best I have seen yet.
    You cant have a signature unless it fits in this box

    Yep i do plan on a few weekend tours in the future, the first of which will be in about 3 weeks, really looking forward to it.

    Yes it's a great bike, only had it 2 weeks maybe. The bar tape is the standard bontrager tape, looks like leather in the pics but it's just coloured that way, it's gotten a little grubby too since i've had it.

    This has been my commuter for the last month due to weird work things that don't let me watch my bike while working and also i love riding it around. I probably do between 8-20 miles a day on it. I am tired a lot.

    Haven't had time/$ to accessorize it much, but I'm very happy to have my new Giant Trans Send DX!

    dcdirewolf,
    Nice bike! You look like you have all the essentials. I willed myself back from the over-accessorized camp and I am much happier.

    My fun little Trek 7.3 FX, well not little, 60cm frame. It is by far one of the most fun bikes I have ridden in the past year, as I just got back into cycling after about 15 years of not cycling, maybe even longer. It is stock all the way, except for the Bontrager quick-release rack and Trek pack.

    Looks great. Post it in the Varsity appreciation thread.

    Maybe later this week I'll post my Varsity in here with the latest mods I've put on it.

    I believe that's the stock tape, but it really does match the saddle nicely. Thank you for replacing those worthless stock fenders, too.


    Rear rack and folding baskets make for plenty o' storage and more even weight distribution... and it is good.

    Yep. That's how much she weighs.

    That looks more like a grocery trip instead of commute trip. Nice paint job.

    First post here. I recently started commuting 10 miles round trip and bought the San Jose when I got a little more serious. This bike is really well thought out and I am having a blast. I may switch to a 16t rear freewheel but we will see.

    Thanks for all the knowledge and information here!
