    The fenders are planet bike and it is a Selle Italia seat. Believe it or not this seat is bigger than the one on the bike I race with soooo. It's all about how the saddle fits your bone structure and these fit me well. I rode this seat on this bike for the 62 mile Barry Roubaix gravel road race last month and had no problems.

    That saddle doesn't look very comfy for a thirty mile ride.

    Rebuilt my trusted old Peugeot this morning and took her on my evening commute... for many years she was my daily driver until an unfortunate accident destroyed her fork and I have had the replacement sitting here for too long.

    It only took a few hours to strip down and swap the parts from my AO8 to my old girl and she makes for a pretty fast commuter.

    Not too shabby as a very basic bike for a short commute.

    A different incarnation of this bike has been posted before, but not in this thread. It's a repainted 31 year old Trek with a modern drivetrain. The fenders are tight around these 32's. I'm probably going to go with wider ones at some point.

    I had the 2008 X-Fire in the past and regretted selling it, been looking for a reason to replace for a very long time. This one brings all of those good memories back.

    That looks awesome! And thank you for the great idea on where to stick my lock when I commute

    Thank you. I use a little toe strap that I trimmed to keep it from flopping around too much. Works like a charm. I keep the bike inside the bike room at work (where else?), but I like to be prepared to stop at the store on the way home. So far that has been just a "what if?" though.

    That is an excellent question!

    To win I have to ride to work 80% of the time for the rest of the year, but I don't actually know what I win.

    I should probably work on my negotiating skills.

    I often carry my locks this way too, the strap is a good idea as I have had locks eject themselves, the velcro straps used for pumps also works well for this.

    That is where I keep the lock when I am running with one pannier. But the lock I have I actually lock up around the rack legs, so flopping and ejecting are not possible.

    Here's my ride. Its a 2012 Giant Avail 3 Composite. I ride about 19 miles each way once a week for now. I'm working on adding another day but my wife isn't always happy about having to watch our daughter by herself for an extra hour so I can commute.

    Funny thing is I don't watch TV and rarely watch movies. I remember stumbling into a clip of him saying 'sheeeeeeee' years ago and I loved it. Have been saying it since then.

    Out west my friend. I'm out west. I have yet to take this one out for a spin this year. It was hibernating during winter and last week I changed the shifters, cables, RD, chain and cassette. Looking forward to commuting with it once the roads are cleaned up.

    Just built up, want to ride it in stock trim for awhile before adding a rear rack and more pavement worthy tires. Saw dirt/gravel/rocks for the first time today. I have to say the bike is much more capable than I am in dealing with that terrain.
