    That is the mount for my cell phone, which is how I do my GPS and HRM. Ram mount (http://www.ram-mount.com/Products/Bi...3/Default.aspx).

    It is two pieces: the phone cradle (which you see in the picture) and the mount itself (which is attached to the stem with zip ties and holds the cradle). I used it first with my old Windows 6.1 phone and now with my Android 2.2 phone. That is part of the beauty of the cradle itself, it is adaptable in width to securely hold your phone (no matter how thick or wide). If I didn't have a quill stem, I probably wouldn't be able to mount the mount securely on the stem and so would mount it instead on the handlebars itself. The cradle clicks into the mount and is detachable relatively easy and if I prefer I can use it in landscape mode.

    Very nice looking Windsor, I didn't know they came in that color! Is that the 49cm size?

    Edit - I just looked at the BD site, that's the only color they have, but they look much darker on the website...

    Specialized Sirrus dropbar convert
    This is my go-to bike for long rides and faster commuting. It used it for winter commuting last year but I was also changing the cassettes and cranks so I wasn't super-worried about the extra wear and tear. The massive mudflap kept most of the sand and salt out of my chain.


    mercier kilo wt w/drums
    This bike was a bit of a hack but it's working now. I would save my pennies for a slightly better suited frame but this was the only thing I could find that would run wide 700 tires and horizontal dropouts. I'd have bought the actual WT5 but they've been sold out of my size since December. It's finally reached a point approaching completion so it sees regular use now... I don't really notice the heavy hubs riding around town, haven't been brave enough to take it out of the city yet. I also have a homemade chaincase dreamed up and hope to get around to it sometime.

    The color threw me too. I was thinking they had changed the color to a lighter shade and I kinda like it. It could just be the lighting both in this pic and the ones BD has on their website. Either the one pictured here is very nice. =)

    Thanks! The panniers are old Cannondales that I got off CL for $20 for the set. They're actually front rack bags but I run them off the back. I hardly even notice that they're there.

    When funding becomes available I am going to switch to a trunk bag and move the HB bag to another bike.

    I got this Giant used a couple years ago at a local bike shop for $150. It is by far the smoothest, highest quality bike I've ever had. I love it! I'd like to swap out the tires for some nice street slicks and maybe get a nice cpu to measure my distance/speed etc. I think this is technically a mountain bike. Am I right? I ride this about 4 miles each way to work. And I'm thinking of entering a triathalon next month.

    You are correct. It is a mountain bike.

    It will make a dandy commuter, but is not the best choice for a triathalon.

    1988 scott sawtooth

    YEP Ol' School mountain bikes make killer commuters !check out the long stays and stretched out front fork on this oldie! i slapped a set of Forte 26x1.25 slicks on the vintage Ayara wheels and a Topeak rack with slide in bag with built in panniers, i got rid of a HEAVY 2010 GT Traffic that i had been commuting on to purchase a vintage roadbike i had been wanting , so the old Sawtooth sitting in the back of the garage was put back into action!

    Thanks for the response. Why wouldn't this be very good for a triathalon? It's all I've got so I'm going to have to use it either way. I figure some new slicks should some.
    Thanks
    Mike
