    RGNY, nice to know another forumite commuting on Sunday! I'm sometimes Lay Eucharistic Minister, sometimes Thurifer.
    But I've never had my front wheel pulled into a warp in the space time continuum.

    Your bike is so freaking fast that the front wheel is already departing! That's awesome.

    Done having kids that I know of but did adjust the seat. I wasn't pleased with the bone deep ache in my posterior. I also got a Bell memory foam seat cover for my old and not so padded arse.

    The chairs are hideous, but since I work for the federal government, hideous chairs that are as old as my bike cost the taxpayer nothing to NOT replace them.

    I think I've posted my bicycle here before, but I have a few new photos, so I thought I'd share them!
    My commute takes me from the suburbs, up over a forest-y hill, through downtown and out into the industrial area near the airport.
    ANYWAY, bicycle commute photos:

    First Day Commuting

    Today's my first time commuting by bike in over 4 years. My bike route is 16 miles each way, but by car it's 12 miles. Here's my bike, a 1998 Nishiki Blazer. I bought it brand new from my LBS in 2001, still rolls pretty close to new. I've never replaced the tires, though. I've got a new set of slicks arriving on my doorstep tomorrow and I can't wait to see what sort of difference they make in pedaling for me.

    Oh, I'll play. I've been riding my cyclocross bike this week to get things dialed in for a gravel road race this weekend (maybe). Racks on *all* the bikes.

    I don't know what it is about Redline but I've never seen an ugly one.

    Still a work in progress with some more things to add (like handlebar wrap), but I've been building up this old Trek over the past week and rode it today to work for the first time. Super comfortable and fits like a glove. I love it already.

    My "new" commuter, got it from a coworker when she moved out of town. Still needs a rack and some fenders but it's a nice little bike.189.jpg

    Thanks I'm really pleased to report the commute yesterday was unlike what I'm used to. I have lots of bikes, but this one is just the right amount of a comfortable upright riding position without sacraficing speed and the bike just feels "nimble" with a little (but not too much) weight on the front. I can tell this one will see a lot of miles. Here's a snap from yesterday on the way home:



    Edit: here's a pic with it all finished up:

    Here is something a little different, just converted from drop bars to VO Milan bars with a painted Salsa stem. I was finding it too hard to get comfortable with the nearly 4" drop from the seat to the drop bars so I figure this will solve the problem.

    Here is the other bike I have been commuting on, I removed the factory basket handlebar that was installed and put this one on.

    Dorf those are two hugely different frame sizes. You ride both of those?

    And what model of Schwinn is that? Looks cool.

    When I was in San Diego I rode much more than I do now, I was commuting 4-5 days a week 12 miles each way. When I was doing that I was riding mostly typical road bikes. I have been having a tough time here in South Dakota getting inspired so I decided to get something more laid back so I got the Schwinn City bike and have been enjoying it. After doing some reading I found that I could get some flat bars for the road bike and it wouldn't look atrocious. I really like the feel of them and can't believe I never considered it sooner. Now I am considering doing the same thing to the MX Leader as well but it will be a more expensive proposition. It has Campy 8 speed ergo shifters so I would need to come up with some sort of suitable shifter for the flat bars or down tube levers. The Schwinn is an XL and the Bottecchia is a 62cm.
