My commute is only about 15 minutes through downtown Vancouver, but it's enjoyable on this thing:
I used this today.
"Cycling is for pleasure not penance"
"newbie at heart"
well hellow Grim. Yes, i miss this stuf but i went and got a house (working on it for 2 and 1/2 years now) so i can have the room i need to make bike goodies. The chain gard was bent around a steel coffee can and a glas jar and looks like an endless loop of wood and my hands are still sore from "twineing" the bamboo
"newbie at heart"
Still Downtown or did you move out a little?
If you have the pictures throw up a build thread on the bikes. I know the C&V guys would enjoy them.
You cant have a signature unless it fits in this box
I've been commuting on this almost exclusively since I built it up a couple of weeks back. I just added a Wald basket to the rear rack also, and got some great panniers for shopping trips that convert from pannier to backpack, so I will need to take some updated photos soon too.

Co-Motion Norwester Tour. 2010 model, custom frame size, since I'm kind of strangely built. Been riding it to work every day for over 2 years now. Changed the bars is all. Cheap Bor-Yeah rack and custom fender extension crafted by my bike mechanic wife.
Just waiting for a chance to take some good pics
@mechanicalron: I do intend to pick up or make a extended flap for the front fender, good call. It's a fairly new build so additions will be made as the needs come up.
