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?
Weather is getting nicer and most of the roads are now clear and relatively dry although it is not hard to see we got some record snowfall this year.
It is nice to get out and be able to crank it up and fly just a little faster and the 26 by 2 Hurricanes on my bike were made for riding on sand and gravel which has yet to be swept up.
