    That is a good looking commuter! I've been looking for an old peugeot to convert into a commuter for a while; nice find.

    That was the original set of FSA Omega bars. They just sold on Ebay, actually.

    I couldn't stand that bend, so I replaced them with a set of FSA Omega Compact 44cm.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    And I'm with you Sixty Fiver: this is one of my favorite threads on the forums / these commuting bikes all have a character and seem to reflect the owners very well

    Here is my newest commuter that I plan to be my new primary commuting bike. Its a Citta Gazelle minivelo I got on eBay on a tip from a member on the Folding Bike forum. I plan to add a rear rack and panniers and do a dropbar conversion. Its pretty great just what I was looking for. It performed well on the commute on Friday and was wonderful on the 20+ mile ride I took this morning. Here are some pics from this morning's ride.

    Hauling 30+lbs of cat food on the rack and in the pannier on the way home from work Thursday...Not used to carrying that much weight, it was interesting!

    All set up for everyday stuff. The panniers do add a noticeable weight, but they'll be a huge convenience and they pop off the basket easily.

    LOL I had to look "ponking" up to see what it meant. The frame seems plenty stiff but its not as responsive as my Windsor Shetland, but thats not surprising given their relative geometry. The Citta has a 42 inch wheelbase which seems fairly long.

    Ilove it! I have this Moulton that is GREAT with loads. It must be the low gravity thing but a fast bike with little wheels is a trip at speed and fun! This one is a 1964 with a 4 speed hub.

    That Giant Seek is so cool -- yet it's almost like the Bad Boy I used to own and later sold. There's another model at my LBS with an Alfine 8sp. I should test-ride it to see how much I like its IGH.

    Awesome, I love it. I'm sold on a Surly being my first real "new" bike. Now...time to save up for one.
