    That looks like a great commuter with fenders and the Schmidt generator.

    How did you mount the Nexus twist shifter on the drops?
    Cheers,

    Reflective tape
    The 3m brand is sold at Kragen Auto and some other brand is sold at Pepboys for half the price (but isnt as good)

    here's mine. it's a Rescued Trek 800. it's got the original Shimano Exage shiftig components and brakes, and biopace chainrings. I got the rear rack used and the front rack is an NOS Vetta $5 each from the LBS, the rear crate originally belonged to the 7-UP/Dr. Pepper Bottling company. (the one that holds 3 8 pks of 20 oz bottles.) the saddle is from a Schwinn sidewinder, the front fender is from a 1952 Schwinn Traveler 3 speed. I don't have the rear fender mounted yet because i need to make a bracket for it. I have a CatEye opticube 800+ candlepower headlight and a blackburn Mars 2.0 blinkie. as a backup I have the lightset from the '52 schwinn as well. my rear panniers are not mounted right now, but the front one is actually a Rhode Gear "diaper bag" that is supposed to mount on a child seat. it works great to hold tools and stuff I may need to access while riding. I ran out of reflective tape before I could go to crazy with it, but I think I will be seen. I carry/attatch various other things depending on where I'm going. this is my all purpose bike and it handles well. the pic shows it with a 25lb Pumpkin on the back, but I've had 2 bikes strapped on there before. sometimes I see what I can carry just for the sake of saying hey, I can do it. the other pic is when I got it before I had a chance to fix/geek it up

    Gave up trying to make the '99 Gary Fisher Tassajara a commuter/beater (frameset is available for trade - looking for a nice 531/Columbus SL road machine), and traded a local cyclist some parts for an ugly Benotto 800-series frameset to cobble together into a decent all-around machine. Rides excellent, although it takes a little getting used the combination of North Road handlebars and rather twitchy racing geometry. Weighs 30 pounds - not bad, considering.

    Few things still have to be fine-tuned on it (particularly, mounting a pair of spare Conti 1000s I have on it), but it's perfectly ridable as-is. Could use an Airzound for it though

    First of 2 other people's bikes at the farmer's market this weekend.

    On Saturday, a Pedersen, that I'd never heard of before.

    I still can't really picture how it works. It had one chainring, maybe 32T?

    On Sunday, parked in the same spot, a Rivendell Atlantis. I assume the front wheel was stolen but maybe the owner took it with him/her while shopping. If stolen, not a recommendation for those mini U locks I guess.

    My red Gary Fisher mtn bike is in both pix, I think you can only see the reflective sidewall in this one.

    Here's my "new" commuter, I took an old Sears and removed the brakes/levers, etc, and put on a rear wheel from a Columbia which is equipped with a Sturmey Archer 3 speed/coaster brake. It's perfect for my extremely short commute - and looks bad enough that no crack heads will steal it.

    That the wheel was stolen (if indeed it was) has nothing to do with how good a lock that mini U is. That's a terrible locking job. I would have expected a Riv owner to know better. That's a real shame.

    Here's mine w/o the panniers, it looks funny.

    I am older and have an old neck injury from an old bicycle wreck so can only bend my neck so far. Plus being female I have short arms. Even though my bike looks funny I can get on the drops and have several comfortable postions to choose from. I also have arthritus in my hands and can only put so much wt on them. I didn't realize how wierd my bike looked until I took pics yesterday. My raleigh doesn't look that bad and I am postitioned almost the same on both bikes. And without further ado:





    Here is my raleigh for comparison.




    The thing I have attached to the rack on the nova is an rei backpack accesory bag, or whatever you call it. They are too bulky for my backpack but perfect for the rack. I cable tied it on. I dont' like a tall trunk bag. I also just got some sunlight panniers. Here she is loaded up and ready to go.



    I used to live car free in bft SC but sold my bike when I moved to savannah in 1988. I got a lifecycle stationary bike instead. I had some bad bicycle wrecks and did not want to repeat the experiance after I graduated and moved. I am not carfree right now but am trying to work more commutes into my life as I now live where I can safely ride quite a bit. Mostly I ride for fun and exercize. One shop tried to steer be towards comfort bikes, not that there is anything wrong with that but I met some folks at the local bike touring club that had comfy road bikes and was able to adjust my riding to suit my aging neck and hands, I can still go fast and ride with clipless pedals. My next bike will probably be a recumbent, I'll keep the ones I have but I want to add to my stable so I can enjoy riding my entire life.

    I'm setting up a new commuter using a mid 1980s Schwinn Mesa Runner MTB that I intercepted on its way to a trash pile.
    This is the "before" picture. I'll post the "after" photo next week when I'm done.
