    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...

    I recently converted my hybrid flat-bar bike to a utility/grocery-getter/commuter bike with road bars and shifters.

    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.



    Enjoy!

    Thanks and I'll put pics up when I get it tomorrow.

    P-clips actually work pretty well for light loads. I used them on my last bike. Do a search and you should find some good info. You could also use a seat post rack, but IMO those look out of place on a road bike. Think ahead about how your going to mount whatever is your going to mount to your rack. I may swap mine out of a topeak rack so I can use one of their nifty quick release bags for the same purpose. Plenty of people are happy with just a backpack and a bungee. You'll probably have heel-strike issues with a pannier setup on that bike (I do on my Fuji) so maybe want to go for a sweep back style rack if you decide to go with Panniers to increase your chances. For myself, I'm looking at the axiom journey (http://www.axiomgear.com/products/ge...-rear/journey/) and the topeak supertourist (http://www.topeak.com/products/Racks...larRack_w_o_sp)

    I just finished reconfiguring my '89 Rockhopper with Soma Sparrow bars and 26x1.25" Panaracer T-Servs. I originally planned to use the Sparrow bars in "dropped" mode, but the fit just wasn't going to work without a ridiculously tall quill. It seems this bike wanted to be reborn as more of a Dutch bike wannabe than a hipster wannabe.

    I first started commuting on this:



    1972 Triumph Roadster. Surmey Archer 3 speed.

    Then, I came across this Miyata, and transferred the rack & saddle to it:



    1990 Miyata 721A

    But then I gave the bike to my son (but kept the rack and sold the saddle).

    Then my son found this, so I fixed it up, put the rack on it and now I commute on this bad boy:

    How are those old 7 series Trek's in terms of weight. I'm thinking about trying to pick one up if they are light enough.

    Not too bad at all. I've never weighed it, but if I strip all the non-essentials off of it, it'd probably be 22 lbs or so. Maybe 23 lbs.

    Yeah, I never had to worry about cracks in the road, going up onto driveway lips, seams between the asphalt road & the concrete curb, etc. Those bad boys went anywhere. Also never got one flat with those, either!

    Is it just my computer, or has this thread hit 369 pages, or 371 pages? Seems like it's stuck somehow...

    The Rig is an ever-evolving, ever-changing living beast and here are the latest pictures of the ugliest bike on Earth! It has been my main squeeze for commuting and utilitarian use for some time now. It's a 2005 Trek 4300 Hardtail. Pics are self-explanatory. The lights on the front are MiNewt 200 and MiNewt 600, and on the rear a pair of Cherrybombs and a pair of PBSFs.

    I may actually look into one. I just gotta find one in nice shape at not such a high price. Only nice one I've seen is a 700 for $240 but if I'm spending that much I want something a little better than the base model.
