    I'd prefer a longer wheelbase... and a straight frame. My Shetland has neither.

    Seasonal changes.

    From this:



    To this:



    I wanna go all black, but the yellow is so eye catching, and local drivers are so... you know. Anyway, skinny summer tires means that I can fit a front derailleur, which means that I can run a bigger chainring. Which is great, since, come summer, the lack of ice and studded tires had me spinning out on the 42 tooth on several local downhills. Plus clicky-clicky indexed shifting (I know a lot of people disagree, but I really hate bar-end shifters on drop bars) and clipless pedals (not pictured) and I'm loving my very brief, very speedy commute. Which is great, as my slow whip, the day-glo cruiser, is busted (and no, I don't want to talk about it).

    Yeah. it's much like a BB but couldn't get a good deal on a BB so I go with this one...

    I do like the yellow wheels with the black. A huge improvement over the before pic. I like the Trek too :-)

    I've been commuting, every work day (and to church n Sunday) for three weeks now.

    Here's my ride:
    562203_4153024630813_1733796262_n.jpg

    It's a Dimaondback Edgewood hybrid.
    My current commute is about 9 miles roundtrip, with an assist from the local MTA.
    By summer's end, I hope to be making one leg (into work) without the MTA lift, that's 14.5 miles one way.
    Nashville, like L.A. without a tan.

    Sixty Fiver,

    Your Shasta and Cascade inspired me to fix up this bike. It is one tough cookie, decently equipped and I enjoy riding it .

    I love my little Shetland it still my favorite bike in the stable, but the Citta is a great little commuter. Its really stable and comfy plus I can put regular sized Panniers on it with a rear rack once I get it set up right. Its kind of a funky looking frame, but I think it honestly looks better in person than it does in pictures. I have had many compliments on it from friends who both know some things about bikes and ones that know very little about them. I look forward to when I have time to convert it to dropbars, but I have other projects right now that come first unfortunately.

    Thanks,
    That is nice to hear... if I was looking to replace my Shasta one of those late 80's Trek's would sit very highly on my list and we have converted many of these into some very capable and utilitarian machines.

    My Shasta might be my hardest working bike as it replaced my Trek hybrid as my all around commuter and utility bike... just swapped the wheels between the Shasta and Cascade and fitted Marathons which makes the bike a little livelier and quicker on the road, although the ride is not quite as nice with these as it was with the Schwalbe Silentos.

    Also upgraded the rear d to a Shimano DX from the Shimano Light Action which makes for a quieter and smoother shift.
