    Put some LIT ultra-reflective sidewall tires on the commuter. They are indeed astoundingly reflective, from almost every angle. Ride really nice, too. I'm very very happy with them so far.

    Is that a Marin Muirwoods? 29er or 26? I have the Muirwoods on my short list of N+1 bikes for a round town bike.

    Yeah it's the Muirwoods 29er and I absolutely love it. It's such a tank but I can get some nice speed on it. You can get a 2013 on ebay right now for cheap too. I paid $449 for mine shipped but you can take a stab at auctions and I've seen it go for as low as $300 shipped.

    Yea, seems like a steal at that price. Much cheaper then at the Marin Factory store in SF even. I am tempted to pull the trigger, but my wife would not be so happy if I got another bike right now, so maybe will be able to find a deal on the 2014's when they come on sale

    I've posted pics of my Salsa before. I built the bike back in 2011 using a combination of new and used parts from a donor bike. I decided to do some upgrades over the winter. I added a new Ultegra rear der, Salsa Cowbell bars, Salsa seat post, Blvd Pedals, Ultegra BB, red Chris King headset, Salsa red liplock seat clamp and a set of SKS 50 Longboard fenders. Those fenders are huge. I took it out for a shakedown run tonight. No major issues....Here are a few pics....

    New commuter build. Moved some of the good parts from the old commuter and moved them to the new one.
    `1985 Trek 830
    -New 2.0 Bontrager triple flat protection tires
    -New Fenders
    I am really liking the ride of the 2.0 balloon tires with 65PSI. Feels about the same as the old 27x1 1/4s on the old ten-speed.
    Also getting to really like the lower gearing on this Trek. That Schwinn gearing was definitely taller.

    - Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.

    Giant Escape 1 Hybrid, stock, white, Picked it up today. I will turn this into a commuter and light touring bike. It is my only bike. Will be putting on fenders. Looking for a rear rack & bag.

    Thank you It's an incredibly comfortable bike indeed. I just wish I could fulfill its destiny by going on along tour.

    What bag is that on the truckers bars? Does it get in the way of the light?

    It's a Topeak Tour Guide bag. Yes, it does get in the way of the light but not by much. It's already mounted low with a Thorn accessory bar. I may try lowering it even further. I tried mounting the light below but it's inconvenient.

    I like this bag because it has lots of pockets: two on sides, one up front, and two in the cover with mesh divider and lots of little pockets meant for credit cards and the like but I use them for alcohol wipes and Wet Ones. The main compartment is padded and has an adjustable padded divider for a phone fits iPhone 5 and will fit a much larger phone too plus another pocket. Lots of places to stash stuff and keep little things from getting mixed up. The only negative is that it sags somewhat when heavy.

    And the clock is Stem Captain.

    Edit: sorry, I confused the Tour Guide bag with Topeak Super Tourist rear rack. The bag is called Tour Guide.

    These are Axiom Lasalle panniers, the Journey series, designed to be the front panniers while the larger Champlain were meant to be the rear set. They're both discontinued.

    They make them now more like drybags, with roll-tops which makes them less convenient for commuting IMHO. So yeah, these older ones are the perfect size for commuting. The Champlains are larger and have an extra external pocket, but they're too big for commuting.

    The Cross Check continues to morph...

    We finally got some rain in California, so I installed the fenders I had been sitting on for about a year. The installation process was an exercise in frustration, but now that they're on they work really well. Will probably remove them again in May as that's when our dry season usually begins.

    I also went from a double to a triple crankset since I use this for bike camping and short tours, and I was sort of yearning for a triple on the last couple trips. Really missing the relative simplicity of the double crank for normal riding though. Not sure what to do about that.

    Brennan your bike looks great.

    Mine is almost done with the upgrades I did. Need to wrap the bars and put my fender and rack back on, and add my new dynamo lights.

    That's cool. What disc brakes and brifters are you using?
