    Thorn Raven Tour, really love this one.(Btw, i use Alfine instead of Rohloff.That one's too expensive for me.)
    What bars are those? I'm looking for a set that has a lot of sweep but more reach, and those look like just the ticket. Do you have a shot of the bars from the cockpit?

    My New Commuter! It is a 2000 Magna with like no miles on it when I picked it up on Friday night. Saturday I spend time adjusting the bars, seat, and brakes. The fenders from a Schwinn are going to be fitted, painted, and added..... along with a back rack.



    Enjoy!

    Ah finally, someone else with a Torker! I've been loving my for almost 2 years now. It's a burly, reliable, all weather, commuter no?

    I have hybrid version of this bike with that sweet spatter paint job. Its like the bike is made out of an Oreo Blizzard or something. =) I think I might have to give up on the idea of building up because I don't think it will fit me the way I would want it to.

    Would you post some more pics of the bike? I would like to see some real world pics of one.

    Ok after much intrernal struggle, research, and hawking Craigslist for almost 2 months I ended up pulling the trigger on a 2011 Kona Paddy Wagon. I ended up getting it for $350 which I thought was a pretty decent deal for a new bike. Its going to be my commuter during the warmer months. What say you BF, any of you have any experience with this bike, words of wisdom, things I need to consider, etc?

    That was on my short list when I was shopping for a new commuter - I decided I didn't like the track ends because I wanted full fenders... doable but more hassle.

    Why only during warm months? That's a great foul-weather bike... if you can get the fenders worked out.

    Just got new wheels for the commuter/touring bike. Fuzion M1's. Sorry about the terrible picture as my cameras battery died right as I was going to take a picture. So i had to use my cell phone.


    Edit: I just took a better picture...

    Hooray! Finally, another zilla rider. I got mine around Thanksgiving and have been commuting a couple times a week as long as the weather's been cooperating. It's perfect for it, though, I still need to get some fenders for mine.

    I've seen pictures of full fenders, specifically SKS p35 fenders on several Paddy Wagons. Erm, aren't those full fenders..I could be wrong?
    I bought it because specifically because I thought it had eyelets for both so I could mount fenders and a rack from the seat post for light duty

    Edit: I found these pictures that show fenders on a Paddy Wagon

    Beautiful bike. How was the whole process of switching out the bars? I'd love to do something similar with my old MTB commuter, but I've been told that it wouldn't be worth the effort and cost (replacing the brake levers and shifters, etc). Or were you somehow able to keep your flatbar fittings?

    Love it! Living proof that functioning commuters can be inexpensive and easily acquired. Kudos on finding a used set of fenders, too.

    Thanks. The shifters were easy clamp-on and just required a longer screw. The brake levers I took apart and filed, reamed and hammered. They work but I still want these Tektro

    I have SKS fenders on mine. Totally has the appropriate eyelets for any full fenders that will fit inside of caliper brakes. They used to have rack mounts too, but no more.

    Not particuarly stylish, even by my own low standard for stylishness, but this one gets the job done in the winter, with studded tires that keep me upright on ice.

    No Fun. No ride.

    My entry-level road bike converted commuter (2003 Fuji Finest). Recently upgraded with SPD shoes/clips and 23c Gatorskins in the hopes I can put some MKII fenders on it. Still dreaming of something more versatile, along the lines of a Bianchi Volpe/Surly Pacer type. Maybe one day...

    Added somethings to the new Magna commuter this week; horn, painted and installed back rear rack and pannier bags, front and rear lights and new water bottle with mount. I also ordered the rail handle bar mount for the Garmin Vista I used in the Military and a 16 oz Stanley thermos for hot joe. I'm planning to order new panniers that are not as long/deep....I'm getting heal hits on the ones from the wifes bicycle.
