    Here are some shots of my 94? Trek 370 commuter. This bike was given to me in exchange for installing a roll cage in an old Jeep so not much invested other than fenders, lights and tires.

    Hi everyone, let me introduce you my commuter/everyday bike, it's a early '90s (I guess..) Atala Tour that I bought at an auction of abandoned bikes 10 years ago. I had to replace rear wheel, fenders, lights, dynamo, brakes, get a saddle (and then matching grips, because..you know!) front wheel bearings and cranks bearings and now it flies! The derailleur it's a (crappy) low-end Shimano SiS and that's the only thing soon or later I'm going to replace because no matter what I (or bike mechanics) do it won't work smoothly!
    To make it more functional I'm thinking of getting one of those wonderful olive green Carradice Barley bags..

    A couple shots of my single speed. If I keep it I'm going to get fenders and change the bars to something more upright. I've got it on CL for now. I replaced / built this up from an 80s Schwinn Traveler. Only things original are frame, pedals, crank/bb, headset/fork/stem/bars, & brakes/levers

    Thanks!! I feel at home in this sub-forum. Been commuting 20-25km a day, and it's really addictive. Looking at the tons of good/great bikes here inspire me to make my ride 'better'. Little new projects coming (trekking bar, upgrade of drive train), preparing for a century ride in the middle of the year *finger crossed*. Anyway, great thread!!

    This is my "commuter" bike, really it's my only bike. 2014 Kona Jake, I had a cheap GT Timberline hardtail before, decided I wanted to start commuting to school everyday, so I sold that and bought this. I love it, to say the least. Tiagra components, disk brakes, and the bike fits me really well. Anyways, just wanted to drop my 2 cents in. I'm pretty new to cycling, been riding for about 6 months so far.

    I have posted this bike previously but I had the bike painted. Done by Velocolour here in Toronto. Still a few things to do like cable ends, installing my dynamo head lamp etc. The bike is a Masi Speciale Commuter, Chris King headset, Salsa Delgado rims on LX hubs (dynamo), Ultegra derailleurs, White Industries pedals, Bruce Gordon half clips, Gamoh porteur rack, Kenda Kwik Trax 32 mm tires (totally bomb proof), Specialized Avatar saddle, FSA Metropolis bars, Paul Thumbies with Dura Ace bar end shifters and the rest of the usual bits and pieces.

    It's to help stabilize steering and keep the bars straight when parked while having a front rack or basket. Source: I have one also

    Got it! I've never had the need of stabilizing steer on a bike (I did on motorcycles though), keeping the bars straight instead would be useful especially on full-loaded bikes

    Some very dirty pics of the kuwie, added a front low rider rack from nashbar, and got bored after work one day so I added some diamond plate to the rear rack to hide some old attachment points I had drilled on the top. I think I'm gonna add some diamond plate to my upper front rack too.

    This was my commuter today. My girlfriend bought this Allez a while back, but she can't really ride it. She feels like it's too big and doesn't like a racing riding position and just doesn't feel comfortable in general on it. Today I took it for a spin to work. It's a really nice ride. I did some research back when she bought it and am 99.99% sure it's a 3rensho built version based on some of the details, which seem to be pretty rare and sought after. She got it cheap, so i'm guessing the guy that owned it before didn't know what he had.

    bhop, I imagine not many women would like that bike! The reach is long, the bars are low, the drops are deep, the brake levers and calipers need a lot of force. Basically, it's all wrong for a woman.

    Yeah, she picked up a Bianchi mixte hybrid-ish type bike this past weekend and seems to love it so far. Upright ride with horizontal brake levers. I think when she was shopping this bike (allez) she wasn't really sure what she wanted. I like it though, might have to snag it off her.

    This is my son's new commuter that I built up. I was going to build this up as my 650b back up commuter bike but I thought it would get better use if he used it. My rebuilt commuter is posted above at 11838. I still need to add the Dura Ace bar end shifters on Paul Thumbies and trim the cables, adjust the fenders etc. He hasn't decided if he wants a porteur rack and basket like mine but it is there if he wants me to install it.

    Parts are as follows. Ultegra front and rear derailleurs plus cassette 12-27, SRAM Apex crank, Soma Track Pedals, MKS toe clips, Ambrosio Excellent rims on formula hubs, 700 x 28 Bontrager Hard case tires. Frame is a Masi Speciale Commuter repainted by Velocolour here in Toronto.

    @blakcloud: I really like the way you set up your bikes. It's very similar to my preferred setup (blue Cross Check posted above).

    @Fizzaly: That diamond plate rack mod looks fantastic.

    Bhop -- Retro road bikes are things of beauty. Particularly like the gussets, fork crown, stem and those long flutes at the top of the seatstays.

    Get those drops parallel to the ground (kidding -- it's what was yelled at me circa '81)!
