    No work today, and no errands to run, so I took my commuter out on a relaxing, recreational ride down by the river. My favorite biking weather; not too hot,
    and not too cool... just right. Took a pic while relaxing for a moment by the Thames. Yes... this London has a Thames river as well. Looks like the ducks were
    taking a break, too. Unfortunately, that orange and black roadwork pylon and similar detritus is an all too common sight along the river. I'll never understand
    why some folks have such disregard for the environment.

    Gettin' my Fred on.

    Sixty Fiver I always admire the bikes you show us. Thanks. I can dream for free. The problem is when I try to find a bike in my frame size. Not all bikes are made 47 to 48 CM. And when they do they put 26ers instead of 700 C wheels on them. I am hooked on the feeling of speed with the 700s.

    Sounds like you would really like a cross bike... 700c wheels and tough enough to handle the fun stuff and well set up for the road.

    What rear rack is that? It looks like it is slung pretty far back, I am looking for a rack that can help me get rid of my heel strike issue.

    That, sir, is an excellent looking bike. Practical and sporty. You MTB commuters with your drop bars, though, you all should form a club. Has that been brought up in this thread?

    It's a Topeak Super Tourist DX Tubular Rack w/disc mounts. They also have a non-disc-specific model which I have on one of
    my other bikes, and heel strike is a non-issue with either bike:

    Seeing as some of our members are Canadians, we might need something a little more... "international"? is the International Peace Park in MN available? Or is there a good Chinese place near the border?

    The evolution of my commuter is nearly complete. The only thing left is to build up a dynamo front wheel with related lighting.

    My ride began life as a belt driven singlespeed Norco "Vesta", with a B-17 narrow, Brooks bar tape, Schwalbe Marathon Supreme, and Avid BB7 with 185mm rotors as my first upgrades:
    Attachment 177541

    I installed a Civia Hyland rear rack.
    My first planned upgrade: Alfine 8 rear wheel built with a Mavic A719 and utilizing a J-Tek bar end shifter.
    Attachment 177543
    Attachment 177545

    I ultimately went through 3 different sets of fenders before settling on SKS P-45's.
    After a number of miles with this configuration, I determined that the balance was not right - the "Front Center" dimension (BB to front axle) was enormous. More like a mountain bike. So, after a few other tweaks, I decided to install a 20 degree stem and a low-rise flat bar. The bike is now optimized, and I feel it works best as a flat bar bike. The funny thing is that it is now essentially a similar bike to the Norco "Ceres", which is based on the same frame with a flat bar and Alfine 8. Ahhhh, live and learn. Interestingly, Norco has discontinued the Vesta, opting to only offer the Ceres for 2011. The belt drive SS model is now a more of an urban road bike with tighter angles. So, here's the current configuration:
    Note my creative use of a hacked (old parts bin) bar-end to use as a mount for the J-Tek. I really like it in this configuration!!!!!!!

    EDIT: Hmmmm, no matter what I try, the attachments only show as links not as pics. Advice? I've gone into the dialog box that opens when I click the little "pencil" icon in each image, but no luck.

    Waffle House is even better than the membership card. Now I just need to figure out what true MTB dropbar project I want to finish since I got sidetracked a few weeks ago.

    canyoneagle and QuakerProf, your image attachments aren't working, which is a shame as they both sound like nice bikes. Maybe the images are too large? It might be easier to go through a second-party image uploader, like the Dali painting said. He mentioned tinypic, I use photobucket and flicker. Accounts are free, and they're both pretty easy to use (photobucket's easier than flicker, but has fewer options).

    So, with daylight savings time over, are y'all ready for the dark ride home?



    Can you see me now?

    Got my winter bike, frame and fork prepped and mostly painted, going lazy on this one using a regular rattle can just gonna throw another coat on her and call her good, its too cold to try and bother with clear. Not too concerned with how long the paint will last since its gonna get good and abused this winter anyhow. And monsterpile i'd say my bike is also cat approved but he was actually pretty angry with me for having yet another bike clutter up his kitchen
