    Brake cable's a little long there, eh?

    Lovely bike otherwise. (And I probably wouldn't even have noticed the cable except it's bright red!)

    Just finished modding my two vintage commuters with lights, reflectors, racks, and fenders. I'm still thinking about adding mirrors and a better front light than my trusty cateye. My two vintage commuters are a 1993 Bridgestone XO-2 and a 1989 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp:

    Nice; my first "real" commute is tomorrow as well as I just drove to my office to leave my sports jackets hanging behind the door. I've commuted a fair bit but only on days that I didn't have to worry about the dress "code."

    Fortunately, I don't have a formal business dress code and a pretty short distance to go. I'll just ride in my work clothes. Of course, I have a backup outfit in my office just in case.

    That looks cool. Did that fork come with it? Is that a suspension seatpost?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Finally able to post up some pics of my new commuter. Went from riding my beach cruiser to a Marin Ignacio with a 2 speed hub. I wanted a fixie style bike, but didn't want to ride fixed gear. Came across this on Craigslist still in the box for $300. I am loving it so far. Work is one mile from home and I can get there faster on my bike now.

    Fork is from BikeIsland. The rest is from last winter's Chicago Bike Swap and CL. Yeah, suspension seatpost, for now. It's all I have laying around.

    well it all looks like it just goes together.

    ^Definitely. Looks like a great build, just the way it is.

    i really like that build. If I may ask how much did you spend to build that bike? I would love to build a bike sometime but I really don't have extra parts laying around so I wonder if it would be feasable cost effective to do so?

    Just finished this for the little brother in DC. Started out as a Windsor frame from Bike Island. Swapped the carbon fork out for a cro-mo one I had laying about and saved the former for a road bike proj (more anon). Running 3x7 with SRAM x3 in the back and some mish mash friction set up front cobbled together from parts found at the local co-op. Rolling on 700x28 CST city tires. Sorry for the silver on white photo. Not the best, but was in a hurry. All in all, I was quite pleased at the result: a cheap, reliable, non-descript city bike.

    Looks great! I just missed the sale on that frame in my size and was quite sad. Is that the fork from Bike Island?

    $360 and some change.
    I really did hunt for good, used parts, for a good price. So it took me awhile to finish the build. But I am satisfied with the build and it was fun to do.

    Well done! I held off buying b/c I couldn't spec it out (at the time) for less than $500 total.

    This looks very clean. I really like projects that involve recycling old parts. I built up one of my 2 commuters from my parts bin and I enjoyed that as much as I did building up my road bike from new parts.
