    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?

    Hey, thanks noglider. They are VO Milan bars. I like them a lot, though I wish they were about 2cm wider (they are 57cm wide), but I guess that's just a preference thing.

    You can tape off your ride for nice effects too.
    Not sure where to pick it up, ordered mine from reflectallaz.com
    I was curious about painting the sidewalls on my tires with this in a band, perhaps not a solid ring but a pattern, semi solid or a 1/3 strip and a progessive series of strips and then some black.. to attrack attention. Not sure what pattern would be best.

    Here's a pic of my commuter rig, which is actually so far my only rig :-) I'm sure I'll soon start yielding to the N+1 rule, but for now, I ride this baby everywhere in all conditions

    I think that bike looks like an N=1! I like your water tube too.

    Thanks! I love it... if I were to buy another rig, I'd probably want something speedier... still learning what I like though, so hoping to stay satisfied with this girl for a few years first

    Oh, and after searching for a while, I actually stumbled across the Showers Pass Veleau 42 hydration system at Mountain Equipment Co-Op in Vancouver the other day (Canadian equivalent of REI). $80 at REI, but I only paid $9 on clearance at MEC - no idea why they were on so cheap (had been marked down to $29, 22, and ultimately $9), but I ended up buying a few just because!

    Wow, that had to be the best mistake/bargain sale ever!

    Seriously! For $9 that's essentially free! I would have bought all of them and either given extras away as presents, or sold them on CL for a profit!

    Just grabbed this bike off craigslist for short rides to dinner with the girlfriend and other random trips. The left shifter had to be adjusted to get the indexing to work, but other than that the bike is perfect. All I've added so far are the lights, pedal straps with temporary azonic pedals off my mountain bike, the rack, and the perfectly matching OEM saddle off my SuperSix.

    Nearly mint condition Lucky find here in LA where no one seems to take care of their bikes.

    Looks like a nice find. Curious - why do you have your light mounted upside down? What model niterider is it?

    It seems that the beam pattern is designed for being mounted a particular way, so mounting upside down would impact the beam pattern. Is this partially why you have it pointing very far down?

    Thanks! Upside down is mainly because I like a clean bar to look at. I sometimes even forget it's mounted there. It's pointed down because the light is bright as hell and I try to keep it out of pedestrian and motorists eyes. I have it just loose enough to adjust depending on the situation. If I am on a street to myself I'll let it throw further. It's the nightrider MiNewt 500.
