    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.
    Thanks... checking on shipping to states

    this may be a dumb question but how do you mount the bell on the stem like that?

    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.

    With a headset spacer designed to mount a bell on 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.

    Felt coffee cup holder, pretty generic travel mug, I have two or three now from various promotions that fit.

    Those same coffee mugs also fit a standard bottle cage, I also carry coffee in the mornings on my Torker graduate or Salsa Fargo depending on my mood and where I'm going after work.

    Cannondale winter frankenbike is finished... for now. New additions since last pic are drop bars and levers, bar end shifters, studded tires. This is my first attempt at bare frame build and (almost) all scrounged/used parts. I'm pretty happy with the results - but I have this real compulsion though to keep changing stuff

    Well the poor old Kenda Kwests have finally gotten near the end at about 3900mi, tread starting to separate. Put the Kuwie into light load mode as to maybe get a couple hundred more miles out of the tire, but this spring she needs a serious overhaul rings up front are tired, and another paint job is in order so look forward to that.

    Yes it does! It's actually just the cheap 10-15 dollar sunlite front rack. I put it on the back and it's perfect for supporting the bag and keeping it off the cable.
