    Could you provide the specs on that front fender as I'm looking for one to use on the MTB I have in Germany.

    Very nice! I'd be tempted to put bullhorns (handlebars, not real ones, sheesh!) on this beast.

    This is my work-end lock-up beater.

    Early 90s C'Dale M800 "Beast of the East" with typical cracked off plastic cable guides, 2-3 layers of spray bomb.
    - Double chainring (med, low) front shifted by Fox shock lockout switch to Suntour FD.
    - 8sp out back shifted by cheap Gripshift to Sachs New Success RD.
    - Innova studded tires.
    Not shown:
    - I bring a clipon rear fender with me, carry stuff in a Chrome backpack.
    - Bontrager Flare 1.5 blinky on my helmet; Niterider 350lumen hbar mount.

    I can't find studded tires in Birdy folding bike tire size (18"), so I do a two-bike commute, dedicated commuter to the bus station; bus; this bike to work. Once chances of snow and ice are over, this will come back home and resume mtn bike duty.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    What does that mean? You were able to repurpose a handlebar switch for locking out forks, instead for moving a derailleur?

    is the coffee thermos bike specific? or do the bottle cage and thermos just work together?

    The later, they just work together. It did, however, take me some time to find a thermos that fit the cage right.

    I haven't regretted my purchase of a used Habby frame. It's a workhorse.

    I used to take pictures of every person (and bike) I would see commuting! It was fun to check out everyone's bikes!

    In the winter a thermos of *bulletproof coffee or butter tea is a great thing to carry... the 500ml thermos also fits nicely in the back pocket of my regular panniers.



    * bulletproof coffee contains butter, coconut oil, cream, and vanilla... it is hot, rich, and provides some quick calories.

    Weird. Today was the first time I've heard of bulletproof coffee and I have read about it on two separate forums.

    If you do a quick google search for it you'll find quite a few recipes for it. It appears that there is some difference of opinion as to what it is and how it is made.

    65er sent me the recipe in an IM (google chat). I suspect he won't mind my reposting:

    1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp butter (grass fed is best), 1 tsp vanilla, and whipping cream to taste... melt the oil and butter and use a small whisk to mix.
    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?

    Exactly. Works like a friction shifter, but the swing/cable pull is only long enough to shift one gear; not enough to shift over three rings.

    This is it, here:



    Bike not handy, so I can't get a shot of it on the bike just yet.

    My bulletproof coffee recipe is 1 tbsp unsalted butter, one tbsp coconut oil and coffee of choice blended and then dumped into my 21oz hydroflask vacuum bottle. My go juice of choice every morning.

    Hi all. I'm noob to this forum. But I feel great to be around here, learning and getting inspired by your sharing. Anyway this is my commuter bike that I just acquired last month (2nd hand) for around $200 from a nice gentleman, fellow cyclist who's got too many bikes around. It's a 2009 Felt QX75. Most components are stock, except for the pair of Conti Gatorskin tyres, Topeak Super Tourist DX disc mount rack, classic Japan made fenders, Topeak Road Moprh pump, bottle cage, bell, head and tail lights. Been riding it in the past 2 weeks for my (almost) daily commute, between 15-25km depending on my destination for the day (school or office or both), and liking it a lot!! Since the time I took the pic, I have upgraded the pedals to a pair of white Wellgo V8 copy flat pedals, coz the ones on the pic was already worn out. Planning to upgrade the front mech and crankset to Deore set (the crankset is already creaking), the handlebar to trekking bar (to get more handling positions), and the cantis to v-brakes when the budget permits.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Very nice! Your friend gave you a great deal. You should buy him a nice six-pack of something craft-brewed.
