    This came out of a dumpster in Watertown MA. I paid to ship it to WA, added rack, fenders, new tires (1.5" inverted tread rather than 2" knobbies) and then I swapped out the old pedals for a set of spd/plain platforms I had lying around. And away it goes.

    You can't see in the crappy cell phone pic that the front fender stays are attached to the fork w/ copper wire. At some point I'd like to put in a whatever you call it fixed fork, no suspension, if only to get eyelets to finally screw the stays down to. I'd save the susp fork, just like I saved the 2" knobbies, but who knows if it would ever see daylight again. I'm stalled on replacing the fork just 'cause I don't know what I would find if I start taking it apart; threaded, threadless, all that stuff, I don't know anything about it.
    The picture is pretty blurry, but that looks like a threadless headset to me. You can probably order an inexpensive suspension corrected fork from your LBS. Nice ride!

    My Giant Sedona DX

    Modifications are:

    Threaded to threadless headset

    Suspension to rigid fork

    Rear rack

    SKS Fenders

    LiveStrong wrist band

    Lights not installed at the moment.

    The first day, I had a satchel to bring in, plus my usual stuff... One pic is of that day. The othr picture is my more typical day so far with a trunk bag instead of a back pack.

    Frameset was bought in '89 but I'm guessing it was built in the late '70s or early '80s.

    Ishiwata 022 steel throughout. Burnt metallic orange. Built for 27" wheels but I'm running 700C with "normal" reach Shimano Exage single pivots. Truvativ 4D 5-bolt 94mm BCD triple crank used as a double with 44x29 Ritchey chainrings. Deore LX front changer, 600 rear changer, with indexed bar-end shifters. 11-28 7-speed HG cassette.

    I finally got a new digicam so here is a picture of the Bomber, an old all-rigid Specialized Rock Hopper that I bought for $40 at a garage sale. Its first purpose was to pull the twins' trailer but I've started to use it as a grocery-hauler, errand runner, and occasional commuter. As the weather turns this fall, I'll probably slap some fenders on it and commute with it every day. The rack and panniers from REI triple the Bomber's monetary value.

    I love those old Rock Hoppers. Truely great bikes for all kinds of uses. Good find at a garage sale, too.

    By far this has been my biggest bang for the buck cycling related purchase, ever.

    My race bike/commuter

    Here's mine. It actually is a race bike, but I mainly use it for my daily commute, which is a 15 miles one way. Roads are exellent troughout, and I like to ride relatively fast, I usually do about 18-19 mph. I always have a small backpack with me with underwear, etc. I have a locker at work, so I usually don't carry much.

    Nice bike! What kind of handlebars are those? I can't even tell quite what shape they have, but I know I've never seen 'em before.

    Thanks. They are Nitto Moustache bars. They were the bars used on the classic Bridgestone XO-1. They aren't a great choice for really long rides, but they are nice for shorter rides. They are fun on climbs.

    Here's my Trek 7.3 FX with Freddy Fenders, and Trek Interchange rack and bag. It's been a slow build because money is not being nice to me right now, but soon I'll have some lights on here and some waterbottles after I figure out how I want to do the battery for the lights. Maybe some bar ends or trekking bars eventually too. Sorry about the crappy cell phone pic. My regular camera's battery was dead and I didn't feel like finding the charger and waiting a day or so to charge.

    Sweet! I'm all about "townie" bikes right now, and I bet that's a pretty quick one. Do you guys have problems with salty air and rust down in Savannah?
