    Awesome deal!

    I would have a hard time refusing the deal too.

    Sadly I don't have a decent picture of the bike yet but I do have a video of me giving it a good wash one crazy night as I rode home falling fowl of a fast flowing ford!

    Certainly not recommended lol.

    2013 Jamis Nova Sport. Pretty stock other than some lights and a computer. I'm getting a bike rack and more lights soon.

    Disc/v-brake version tektro, they look huge due to the tiny bars they're the shallowest drops I could find I should actually just go back to mustache bars.

    I have a set of TRP levers and I can't stand how long the hoods are. I bought them for a bike I was building up and I wish I hadn't. It might not bother some people but for me, these are the worst levers I have ever tried.

    I like the long hoods, I pretty much live in them, and they're really nice in the winter when wearing thick gloves gives you plenty of room. I just wish they angled up more.

    Kinda funny, like tires, what works for one guy is terrible for another. Cool project by the way, I too am working on a drop bar mtb commuter.

    This is my winter bike for going to and from work/school. Specialized Hard Rock with studded tires. Just added leather mud flaps and a mirror in the second picture. Works great.

    Here is one of my daily commuters. It's a Rocky Mountain frame, Surly 1x1 fork, mismatched handbuilt wheels from the 90's, Salsa handlebars from my fat bike, a Bontrager stem and crank from a road bike that was salvaged from a burned down garage, Surly 42t stainless chainring and 21t cassette cog, DMR tensioner, Shimano Deore v-brakes, and some studded Nokian tires. Stupidly comfortable bike. The frame I got off of ebay, and I've been led to believe it was a prototype frame. I'm not quite sure about that, but I can't find a matching production model. I actually have two of these, but one is too small so I built it into a mountain bike for a friend - after I had raced it for 6 months.

    My commute is about 50 feet, so it mainly gets grocery duty. I have a green Surly Cross Check that gets ridden when I need to go any certain distance or get places quicker.

    I love seeing commuter bikes with coffee cup holders. I know it is not for everyone but somedays it it just going to work , not a ride.

    As you can see though, the spoke reflectors don't work for squat. The reflective stuff though works good, under regular lighting without the flash the stickers are so filthy they're actually a dull gray. Which reminds me, I better wipe them down right now!
    I like tape, but after a long search and plenty of testing, found a product called Reflect-All. It's a new spray that you can put on almost anything. I'll try and get a night photo - but it's amazing how well it works.
    You can tape off your ride for nice effects too.
    Not sure where to pick it up, ordered mine from reflectallaz.com

    I love this thread, because so much thought goes into these bikes.

    bikerdude222, what a great idea. I might try it. You may want to try masking with liquid latex. It's a little hard to find. You can apply it with a very fine brush. When you're done painting, rub the latex off with your fingers. I'm using it to mask the chrome lugs on a frame I'm painting.

    gus6464, the head angle on your bike looks steep. Is it?

    You should repost this in the "hot or not" thread. Although that isn't usually my taste, I'd say this ride is hot!
    Everyone hates your lights. Throw them away & buy something civilized.

    Yeah I did before, but I might again. I want to take another pic of it with the fenders mounted and the flipped stem. I may wait until I get a Topeak rack mounted up on there. Already have a Problem Solvers seat post binder installed with the threaded holes for the rack stays.

    Is that a pump under your top tube or are you just happy to ride?
    Yeah, I've been thinking about it and I've come to the conclusion that being an adult isn't going to work for me.
