    I think my other bikes will be getting to rest for a while... it still needs fenders as this bike is drawn to water like nothing else.

    Customized Phillip's 20 which does fold and is also separable and packable.

    I wish it was mine! I expressed the same sentiment - it belongs to Southpawboston and all he told us is that it's a 40 year old French bike...

    My Surly Commuter

    My 2011 Surly Long Haul Trucker is finally complete. Brooks B-67, SKS Longboard fenders, MKS pedals from Velo Orange, Shimano dynamo, Supernova E3 lighting. I'm using Ortlieb panniers. Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires FTW! It's a fantastic ride.

    Sweet bike.

    (I hope Shawn reads this as I have nothing against the LHT at all.)

    Awesome! If I had this one I would just ride wheelies around town all day and smile at everyone instead of going to work.

    My favorite one too. Pretty neat. Is there a name for these types of bikes? Also, some of them have some pretty steeply angled seats. Do you sit on them, or just stand on the pedals the whole time?

    Hi all! I'm a half commuter / half short range tourist, so here's my bike! It's a Trek Lane. I've upgraded the rear rack to a Topeak MTX, bought a U-lock, added bottle holders, Mrrcycle Mirror (Best thing ever), Blaze headlight, and Turbosuper Flash. Also got Spokelits, which RULE!

    Might upgrade the pedals to something with straps soon.

    What color Spokelits did you get? I have red right now, but I think I want to switch to amber. I have amber See-ums (by the same company) on my roadbike, and they seem to work great.

    I got a pair of green ones, in the front, and one in the back wheel. In the end, I have a flash white front light, flash red rear light, and two green flashers. It makes me look like a UFO, but that's ok. Enough to be more then visible, without being overly tacky.

    My sister in law is moving from Washington State to Lincoln and staying with us till she gets settled and I think she is selling her Schwinn Frontier in Washington and will need a commuter once we bring her back on the tail end of our vacation. Here is a 1991 Trek 800 I have had sitting around waiting to be redone and its going to be her likely transportation for the next few months.

    My SUV is a bicycle

    I've enjoyed this thread so much that I've decided to stop lurking and submit my own humble contributions. This is my main commuter, a Specialized Crossroads Sport that I found on a garbage heap three years ago. It had a trashed rear wheel, flat tires, a huge gel saddle on a squishy seat post and an equally squishy thing on the stem. I knew nothing about bikes, had been unhappily commuting the previous year on an older road bike and thought this one would be a more comfortable ride. The changes: drop bars, new seat post and saddle, a heavy duty rack, fenders and (added later) clipless pedals. My commute is mostly flat, so I have it set up 1 x 7, with a bar end shifter. Oh, and the stem. I have no idea what the hell that is. Like I said, I knew nothing of bikes, so brought it to a local guy and said, "Make it happen." He did, and I've put about 7,000 miles on this bike since then. I ride it everywhere.



    My other commuter is the older road bike I'd started out on. It's a Rampar R-one, and has seen better days. It's old, it's beat up and kind of clunky, and once I started riding the Crossroads, it sat. There was just something about it that I didn't like, either the posture it put me in, or the way it handled, I don't know. This winter I decided to pull it out and see if perhaps my mind had changed. Nope, still disliked it. I'd wanted to try a single speed for a while, and since I didn't like the bike as it was, and no one would gasp in horror and dismay if I screwed it up beyond saving, I went to work on it. The changes were pretty basic: I'd already replaced steel rims with alloy, used a 16 tooth ring from the existing freewheel, new cranks and a 40 tooth ring up front, fenders, a Brooks B17 and to complete the transformation, I flipped and chopped the bars. And now I love it. It's my grocery getter, my zip across town for fun bike, and my commuter for those occasions when I have to stop somewhere after work (hence the U lock). I'm going to replace the brake levers with some bar end levers (and put in new cable/housing) in the near future, but for now I'm just enjoying the hell out of it.
