    Hi all,

    Here is my two main commuters:

    Jamis Aurora Elite 2013 (with B17 Imperial, SKS Longboard, Racktime Addit)



    Trek FX 7.5 2010 (too many modifications to list but let's name the B17 Imperial & FSA Metropolis handlebar)



    Cheers,
    Laurent

    With some nicer weather here I broke out the BRC the other night.... the STI's are not as cold weather friendly as the friction shifters on the Extrabike and it was nice to run skinnier tyres in the snirt.

    Marci's bike.jpgWas originally built so it would not be stolen or sold. Now I escort 6 kids back and forth to school on this every school day, rain or shine.

    That is very impressive! A banana seat on a magna frame! How many of the original *mart parts have you had to replace? Looks like original brakes, I see you dropped to SS, and what's that on top of the downtube -- reinforcement? magazine stand?

    I love this... can you run gears with this setup?

    Oh god, those poor kids!

    Seriously, this bike is charmingly offensive. I like it.

    The banana seat accommodated carrying a small passenger and the wooden board was their foot rest. The seat and trick bars provide a very comfortable riding position. Don't need multiple gears for flat riding with young kids. Four gears were removed from the 5-speed cluster for simplification (didn't have a SS freewheel) and to continue running the thin chain. A 70's Schwinn badge was added to the head tube to confuse people...really gets them scratching their heads. Just added the 24" aluminum rim to improve braking when wet at the expense of patina. Wish I could add front shocks but won't give up the basket for carrying backpacks, gallons of milk, etc. Oh yeah, been through a couple sets of used pedals, too.

    Almost finished with my new commuter build. Still deciding on a handlebar and have new wheel set parts sitting on my bench waiting to be laced up.

    it's funny because that wheel looks so puny in the fork! Your lighting setup looks pretty sweet.

    In Mexico, this bike would have foot pegs front and rear, and carry a family of 5 (once I saw 6, counting an infant in a sling).

    Yeah that 38mm is a bit thin looking. Once the fender goes on won't be so obvious. Thanks on the light set up. Dual cygolight 700's on brackets I made out of spare kickstand parts.

    Primary:


    Semi-modernized Raleigh Sports (single speed w/ coaster brake), used as backup:


    Work-in-progress project bike (Panasonic Sport 500) that'll become a bad-weather single-speed with a front drum brake. It also looks like my Topeak rear basket will fit it better than my other bikes, so it'll likely take on grocery duty, too:

    agmetal, I like your bikes and your project. I made a commuter bike out of a mid-90's Bianchi Volpe. It weighs almost 40 lbs. What does yours weigh? I have a rear rack, a dynamo hub, headlight and tail light, and fenders. Despite the weight, it runs so well and fits me so well that it doesn't feel very heavy.

    No idea on the weight...I don't have a bathroom scale or anything at home, so I've never attempted to weigh it! It doesn't strike me as terribly heavy, though, especially when I have my u-lock in my bag, as opposed to the rear rack. It actually feels quite light without the lock on it!

    My nice winter bike... as in... it was 48F here yesterday and I barely needed the studded tyre up front.



    Upgrades from my bin o parts included the LX STI's and the Deore DX group.
