    Dual PB turbo's! You should put them both on solid and use the blink mode as a turn signal. Of course, that's not practical.
    2012 Pake C'mute. Fenders, rack, 32c tires, bags, etc.
    SS Hardtail MTB 26er. So much fun.

    I doubt anyone would pay attention to my turn signals

    I should start a spreadsheet but think I was at 17 before all these bikes fell on me.

    He already has half a dozen gorgeous restored and customized Moultons that span 30 years of production and had a few spares he wanted to give to people who would appreciate them.

    I wish I didn't have the Dawes as it belonged to a friend who passed away earlier this year and he was building it into an all rounder / tourer and we had plans to take our respective folders on some adventures.

    Bikes are just things... I would much rather have my friend back as he was one of the most brilliant and generous of people and considered me a mentor in all things bike related and was a great student and teacher himself.

    His family gave me his Dawes and when it is finished I will raise a glass of iced tea and take it for a ride, in memory of my friend, and if anyone wants to do the same it will be kept here for safe keeping.

    I'm sorry to hear that Sixty Fiver. I also lost a very good friend last year. Very painful.

    I keep moving my finger under the brake lever to shift...darn SRAM habits... then get the OH YAH moment..reach down. Did a 18mile lunch ride today, allot more gearing change needed then my normal 6mile flat commute. Plan for the climbing gears and max out gears before the decents so I don't have to take my hands off the bars (silly newb)

    Winter 2012 Surly LHT by keifer.miller, on Flickr

    Slowly transitioning into commuting. I've yet to acquire all the practical bits (my sweaty backpack stands as a testament to the pannier envy I'm feeling right now).

    It's "Aardvark Reflective Yield symbol 7x7" with Velcro Strap", I bought it on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Aardvark-Refle...dp/B001GSKOU6/

    I modified the Velcros a bit for my needs, I think they come with a loop or something.

    great build,
    Thanks Ha ha ha! I took it off, it comes off too easily, I was afraid it'd get stolen quickly. I still have one on my weekend bike and my MTB.

    That mount is a DIY hack. It's the T-shaped part that comes with the Topeak rack. I bought some cheap lights on Deal Extreme a while ago and they have exactly the same attachment brackets as Planet Bike lights or you can hack the ones that came with your lights too, but I kept them, just in case. The lights are basically a PB Superflash ripoffs.

    So I cut off the parts from the light brackets that the lights clip into and glued two of these using epoxy to the T-part. You will need to drill holes in the T-bracket to bolt it to the rack like this.

    Thank you! It's always better to have a picture. I just bought two new superflashes to mount on the back of my new xtracycle build, but might go ahead and install them on my wife's bike as you describe.

    I made kind of the same mount except I added a reflector in the middle. The Cateyes slide into the same type brackets that Adam has on his.

    I was wondering if any other lights may have the same type of brackets.

    That's nice. You should line up a supplier and sell those.
