    I love biking in fresh snow. Now that my commute takes me down eight miles of roadside bike lanes, I haven't been doing it. But I put together some vignettes from the past when I had no cars to contend with: http://www.trailimage.com/tag/bicycle (about 35 photos). Do it if you can!

    Recently added a Brooks B17 seat, new Michelin City tires after getting a flat on the stock Bontragers, and a White Industries ENO freewheel. I love riding this bike.

    The Retroshift are probably a bit spendy for what they are, but they are the only ones doing what they're doing. I plopped down on a set of CX-1's for my drop bar 3-speed and love them. Was worth spending a bit extra to get it just how I wanted it.

    I've posted mine before, but I've put on a new seat and a compact crank since, so here's an updated picture of my one and only.

    Brilliant!

    I test rode a Soho S back when it first came out and it was so much fun. The single speed was so quiet and reminded me of riding a my BMX bike as a kid. just plain fun. I dont think i would enjoy commuting on it but a single speed still intrigues me.
    I have Michelin City tires as well. I like them too.

    Forgive me father, for I have sinned. It's been nearly 4 years since my last confess... err... commute

    Made my bike winter ready this afternoon. As costs are going up I've decided to get back to bike commuting. It's a 40km one-way-ride into the office. Several days of the week I get to carpool, so it will not be a full time commute. Though, even as it's getting colder, I'm looking forward to it.

    My 1995 Trek 850 Mountain Track Commuter Bike

    I have logged nearly 100 miles on my old Trek 850 Mountain Track since i started commuting (part of my long drive) into work back in late October:

    My Trek 850 Mountain Track.jpg

    I wish I could ride the all the way from home into work (16 miles), but there is a long, winding 55 MPH 2 lane road that is just too dangerous for cyclists.
    I usually park 3 miles from work and ride in on bike paths and side walks. It's a great way to start the day!

    Had to do a slight rebuild of this years winter bike to fix a few bugs but she's back up and running, it'll only have the drops for a few more weeks and it's going back to MTB bars so I can put the hydros back on and hit the trails. Have a few chances to use the new nokian (Suomi) extreme 294's the things grip like crazy, just front try and corner fast on pavement.

    You neglected to say what your badgeless frame is; with all the bontrager components, I'm guessing Trek? Do they make rigid mtb, or did it start life as a flat-bar commuter of some sort? I like the Orca paint scheme too.

    I actually don't know what the brand is, I bought it without any decals used at the local bike co-op, my best guess is Jamis? I bought most the parts as new takes offs from bike shops, eBay etc. it's also my MTB but I don't have any photos of it in that form yet(waiting for forks). I've always like the orca style schemes so I went ahead and did it.

    Oh, well that makes sense then. In any case you put together a nice looking package.

    I got a 5' length of 3M Conspicuity reflective tape off eBay for a few bucks, chopped it up and decorated my kittier, so now this is what I will look like from behind in the dark (plus a red blinkie of course)

    Try looking for a serial number, mostly they're on the bottom bracket. With that you might be able to track it back to its roots.

    Tried that route for a couple of months looked at hundreds of pictures to no avail, I posted to three or four forums every bodies best guess was a Jamis so I'm just going with that.

    The first layer is a pair of good all synthetic athletic socks, then a plastic bread bag, then the thick wool socks. My toes got a bit cold, but I don't have show covers yet. My brother-in-law got me some for Christmas. I've been under the weather a bit, so I'll report back after my next ride.

    My most recent commuter build. Commuter bike 1.jpg It's a Habanero Ti frame with Mavic Open Pros on Gatorskin 25's and SKS Longboards. I've only had it up and running for a week, but am finding it quite adequate for non ice and snow commutes.
