    took off the trunk bag now that the commute is really walking distance, a friend made the frame bag for me to try out as a prototype.

    Done shopping for the season at lunch.

    An updated picture of my daily commuter with a 1x9 setup and a new Specialized Avatar Saddle. Changing the brake levers soon to something with non-metal levers due to the freezing temps.

    The Velo-Orange catalog puked on my bike! Thank you cyclin' Santa!
    I bought some new lights too, the Sigma 3-LED headlight and 5-LED tail weren't cutting it. Now I have a 9-LED headlight that matches fitment with one of my flashlights. Pretty handy!

    Love your bike, BattleRabbit. Nicely done.


    It is a perfect example of 80s steel adapted for commuting use.

    I agree--nice setup, and he probably got the bike for a fraction of the cost of a suitable new bike.

    I was actually rather foolish and paid like $200 for the darn thing, because it was set up as a fixie at the time. Almost all the components are off a Bianchi Strada LX that I got for free. I wound up selling that frame and some fixie parts for more than I paid for the Schwinn... The rack is actually OEM Schwinn off an 80s Traveler(aluminum rack), and I sold the traveler Sans-rack for like $130. I haven't done the math, but if I hadn't felt compelled to change the saddle I think I'd nearly be in this at a profit.

    Nope... working on the 100% YEG thing with my wife.

    But I do seem to spend a fair bit of time here and it does feel like home.

    I use this to travel through time and relative dimension in space!

    Here is my 2009.5 Kona Dr. Dew 56 cm. FSA Metropolis bars, Travel Contact 700x37.



    Here it is in Mt. Dew form. Turns out my 26" rims from my IronHorse fit it just fine with WTB Weirwolfs, but I have to take the P45 longboards off.



    I have a set of drops to try out but i need some bb7s and some barcons first.

    My new commuter! I also picked up a child trailer and turned it into a flatbed. This is the trailers first haul.
    So it goes.

    My last all rounder bicycle finished after years of finding a bike that suit my style.



    Thorn Raven Tour, really love this one.(Btw, i use Alfine instead of Rohloff.That one's too expensive for me.)
    Alfine 8(Thai forum but pics say thousand words,right?)

    I really like this one. That frame bag is really nice. Give your friend props. Favorite part about this bike: the coffee mug in the bottle holder. Nothing better on a cold day while waiting at a red light :smiley:

    If that the Gravity Zilla 29er from BD? How do you like it, especially on road? I could prolly guess it's amazing off road...

    Hey, new to the forum. Thought I'd post my commuter bike. Love this thing, so comfortable and smooth. My first nice bike and have been commuting back and forth to school for the past semester. Felt great and it's nice to ride on the cold New Hampshire mornings haha.

    Yeah it is the Gravity Zilla. It rides nice on the road, smoother than my roadbike and quicker than my mountain bike. I can feel the extra resistance of the semi-knobby tires compared to my road bike but that is to be expected. I have taken it on some single track and it handles very good! I love the fit, it feels like you are sitting in the bike instead of on it! Overall I would say it is exactly as described on BD...sort of a jack of all trades-master of none type bike!
    So it goes.

    Here's my bike which I use for commuting. Diamondback Copperhead (circa 2007) with rack & SPD pedals. Front tire: Continental Touring Plus. Rear tire: Continental City Contact. Just about everything has been repaired, replaced or upgraded at some point. Only change since this pic are the studded tires. It's gone through 3 years of 3 season commuting. This is my first winter of commuting so we'll see how the bike survives.
