    This is my 1996 Specialized Hardrock GX Sport. Fitted with Planet Bike fenders. Nashbar panniers. Simi-slick tires. My commute is about 12.5 miles round trip.

    You guessed correctly. The area seemed to offer a lot for my preferred lifestyle. Right near the water. Ice hockey close by. Both city and country living in close proximity. Of course, I didn't visit in the dead of winter...

    Finnally took a picture of mine to load up here. It is a 1999 Schwinn Mesa GSX. I added a Night Rider Road Rat headlight and Topeak Front fender. Just imagine pannier bags just like N7CZinMT on it and there you go.

    I'm anxiously awaiting to post a picture of my new commuter I've just about finished... need to run brake lines tonight and wrap the handlebars. Problem is - it was supposed to be a beater of sorts - survive the theivery of the mean streets of Boston... but now I stand back and it just looks damn purty, I don't think I'd want to leave it outside! Soon my precious, soon.

    Anders, I've seen your ride before, and I really enjoy the look of a mtb with drops... and I dig the apple sticker of course.

    I've been wanting to post the pics of my commuter but I'm not succeeding, I get an error message that my file is too large: over 100,000 bytes - my pics are over those numbers. Using Adobe I've already reduced the JPG size to the smallest possible per the program and still nothing: over 100,000 bytes.
    What can I do to reduce the size even smaller (under 100,000 bytes size)? Please help...

    Go on google and search for the windows xp picture resizing power toy. It works pretty well to quickly resize a picture to be posted onto message boards.

    Thanks guys, I now think got it.
    This is my commuter Bianchi Volpe '03, it has: frog pedals, Ascent rear rack, Nashbar panniers, Protege 9.0 Cyclo Computer (Planet Bike), Armadillos Nimbus 700x28C, PlanetBike Fredy fenders (custom painted to "kind of" match the bike color) and perhaps the most important feature: the safety flash flag.

    Yeah! originallly came Titanium color, and painted them using spray car paint, unfortunately I couldn't find the same red candy color of the bike, so that was the closest I got.

    Looks the business, Corsaire. Very red!

    I'm in the market soon to replace my old commuter, and the Volpe is high on the list of potential rides. How long is your commute? How do you find the stock gearing and component set, particlarly wheelset? Does the flash flag seem to help a lot? I always run a blinky on the rear, day and night, and find it encourages drivers to give me a lot more space on the road - I imagine the flag helps to achieve the same.

    My commute is 11.5 miles each way, hilly course: the first one being 20-25 degrees uphill and about block and a half long. I love the Tiagra triple gearing, is smooth and serves the hilly course very well. The wheelset is bombproof so far, given that sometimes I practically disappear inside some potholes in my route (winter's leftovers). I've found the flash flag make drivers take a more cautious approach when passing me on the left, and since it's connected to a spring it really wiggles calling the attention of most drivers.

    Nasty quality pictures - but that's what you get when you try to do stills from a video camera... I have no digital camera nor does the office, all we have are video - so its limited to 720/640x480 @ 72 dpi... but for now... my newly overhauled commuter:



    more images: http://www.the-wild.net/puch

    Its an old Puch frame with a Sachs 3 spd. Saddle needs to come up a bit more I think - first ride was this morning and the left bolt was tight enough so the tire started to rub... fixed it as soon as I got to the office.

    Are those Rolf Vector rims? I've got blue RV's on my Trek2200 that are always true inspite of the Seattle pot-holes.

    The rear is a Rolf Vector Comp that I bought from a guy that had never ridden on it (my originals wore through the sidewalls from all the rain/grit). He didn't have the front any longer, and evidently you can't get red from Trek anymore. After looking on eBay for awhile, I gave up and decided I could just build my own using a Velocity DeepV and the Rolf hub. A radial lace uses the same spoke length (and the LBS had plenty of the flat DT spokes used in the original Rolf setup) since the rim dimensions are nearly identical.

    Unfortunately, the red color is slightly different between the two. . . but the front more closely matches the bike, so I may just build a new rear with a Velocity rim and maybe an American Classic hub.

    Oh, and I now use Mavic Open Pros on Ultegra hubs during the winter to save the wear on my "pretty" wheels.

    This is my newest ride, "Ruby Sojourner" is a 2003 Col de La Madaleine by Terry, 16 inch frame, 24X13/8 inch front, 700C rear, everything stock except for the Planet Bike fenders, RealLite tail light, 9V horn, and CatEye 5 LED opticube. She is my daylight savings time, drier day ride. My only complaint is that I can't fit a rack trunk on because my seat is too close to the rack.

    My workhorse ride, Flora is a '99 Terry with two 24inch wheels, NiteHawk Prowler head lamp, back up cateye on the front fork, reflecter riveted to flap of rack trunk, RealLite on trunk, Cateye tail light on rack. In short, fully Fredded, everything to inspire a true roader to race by as fast as possible to avoid looking at her. I love her, she is me, I am her.
