    Yes, toe clips are on the list of odds and ends I'd like to add to the bike. I have been planning on toe clips for over a year now. I can never seem to get them though, because something else always takes precedence. Maybe the fixie conversion will motivate me to go ahead and get them. I am thinking velo orange.

    I really like those and the yellow one's are on sale - some of the reviews mention issues with putting on non MEC racks. Opinion?

    Looks like a decent lugged frame and I like the shoulders on the fork. What is it?

    Edit: just saw the name on the pic. That's going to be a nice rider. Those early 80's treks are nice. Do a c&v build thread please.

    They go on OK, just the standard wiggling and cursing, same as my other (small) pair. Once they're on, there's no possibility of them ever coming off accidentally, but I wish it could be a little easier...

    I can't remember the name of the rack because I pulled it off my old MTB. I think it was from MEC too though.

    There is a portion of stem that is about the same diameter as the bars. I'll try to remember to get a better picture. The bike shop mechanic recommended it.

    Not exactly a bicycle per se, but that's what I use to cycle commute on. (Drive the car way more than I'd like to...)

    I should try commuting with the folder some time, but the gearing isn't suitable for climbing hills yet.

    man I LOVE LOVE the way those 'bent trikes sit with 2 wheels up front. Looks like it would be really comfy and fast. I really want to try one sometime.

    Comfy, absolutely.

    Fast, not so much. (IIRC, a fast trike loses about 1-1.5 mph over a good road bike, a slow trike loses another 1-2 mph. And, we won't talk about hills (well, OK, it depends on the trike, and depends on how you ride - some riders can actually get the lighter trikes (that means they're below 35 lbs, instead of approaching or above 40) up a hill faster than they can a road bike, due to how you can apply torque to the pedals on a 'bent. Certainly not machines for weight weenies.) But, I don't care.

    I'm only jealous 'cause I bought a frame for $25 to build winter bike thinking I had all the parts for a complete build... after just buying studded tires I'm close to having $200 in it

    GT Zum commuter ready to go.

    Outfitted entirely with cheap or scrounged items.

    I am proudest of my front basket, which is a mini milk crate from Big Lots for $1.30.
