Running a SRAM S7 IGH with coaster brake
Now that it's spring, it feels great having the Nokian W106s off in favor of high pressure slicks

My budget commuter!
The Daily Grind, parked this afternoon in front of Bubba's Place.
(amazing what Bubba can do with re-bar and horseshoes, ain't it?)
I'll be commuting on this as I prepare for a Colo/Utah bikepacking trip in May.
2011 Litespeed M-1 (Rival)
1991 Raleigh Technium (Commuter)
1999 Schwinn Frontier (Winter Commuter)
New budget bike for fitness, up coming charity ride, and probably some commuting too. It's a 2009 "Schwinn Fastback" I picked it up on Amazon Warehouse for $160 less then the regular price because it was an open box. It's a mix of some ok components (Sora RD & STI levers, FSA Tempo crankset, Alex R500 rims, FSA Intellaset headset), and some underwhelming Schwinn branded components.
It's also going to be my first foray into clipless off the spin bike.
Here is my Windsor "The Hour" single speed loaded with a few days worth of groceries. Nashbar "LDT" rear rack, Nashbar "daytrekker" panniers, WTB "Silverado" saddle, powergrips/origin 8 track pedals, and origin 8 bullhorns.
How do you guys like those springy Brooks saddles? And how does the ride compare to the non-springed versions?
