    The rack is a Topeak Super Tourist DX rack with disc mounts, rigged to fit my bike with insulated P-clamps and a Problem Solvers seat post clamp with rack bosses. I got the rack with disc mounts because I hope to build up a dedicated commuter bike in the future, hopefully with disc brakes, and then I would switch this rack over to it.

    Agreed. It's a great look.

    Here's my new commuter, a 2012 Jamis Aurora. It's my first bike since mine got stolen about 15 years ago when I lived in the city. I just started commuting 26 miles a day (13 each way) in May, a couple days a week (weekend rec rides not included.) Last week I did 3 days and this time tomorrow I'll have done 4! You all know what's coming next!

    Anyways... It's nothing special compared with some of the bikes I've seen posted - especially the vintage and custom builds. It's basically stock aside from some painstakingly chosen accessories. That said, I'm quite fond of it and the miles are racking up quickly!

    and lastly, a feature I just discovered... the U-shaped rack holds a U-lock quite securely. Heck, why say "discovered?" I invented it. : )

    *sorry for breaking my post into two. I hit send accidentally and it was much easier to just add a post then to edit and embed all the pics into the original post.

    Here is my daily commuter. The first ever frame I built up thanks to the help of you guys. It's my Centurion Comp TA. This picture was taken while I had it out to lunch with me at Sonic. There ain't nothing quite like being able to take your bike right up to your table.

    heh I made a Sonic run the other night for milkshakes for me and my wife. Threw them in my bottle cages and took 'em home. I specified no whip cream on mine because I put mine in the sloping downtube cage.

    Sounds awesome. I'm trying to figure out a good way to make a psuedo drink carrier for my Peugeot that has a nice wide basket type rack for when I make runs to get food and the such.



    Pic related, it's my bicycle's butt. I think I can concoct some sort of wooden or cardboard rig to wedge into one of the sides of the basket. I've got some old tubes laying around that I can use as a rubber grip for the cup holder

    I went to pick up lunch from a local sandwich/deli place one time, with drinks in one of those cardboard drink carriers, using my son's bike trailer with the fabric seat inside. It was NOT a good experience. There was no flat surface whatsoever, and despite the drink carrier the big cups full of sweet tea spilled everywhere, making the fabric nice and sticky.

    Earl vs Fred: The Eternal Struggle

    This is my Trek Earl, a craigslist find. As soon as I got the bike home, I started making changes with stuff from my parts bin. I swapped the bars, seat post, freewheel, and pedals. Since then, I've reinstalled the chainguard (the previous owner had removed it), attached a rear blinky, and added a Wald basket with bungee net. Is it me or is Earl quickly turning into a Fred?

    New commuter! Finally upgrading from my old clunky heavy 90's Giant MTB. Just finished rebuilding this. Putting a rack on tomorrow.

    sci guy, that's pretty HAWT! Love the splash of color on the bars. Lugged Raleigh frame looks really good, did you have it repainted? Fixed or Free?

    thanks! I love how it turned out. It's not repainted - the frame is in exceptional shape. has a few paint/decal scrapes/chips, but overall, it's super bright and shiny. a little rust here and there too, but just a little and i'm rubbing it off. it was hanging in my grandparents garage for 20+ years. it's from the late 70s/early 80s (serial # is unreadable). its an 18 tooth freewheel. also my first single speed!

    My little project, 7700 DA STI's, drop bar conversion. Frame repainted, remaining decals masked off for that survivor look.

    Just waiting on a few racks, fenders and my new seat.

    So you're keeping the suspension fork? For some reason I thought you'd said you were swapping it out for a rigid one.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
