    Great looking bike but maybe I'm partial since my commuter is also a Jamis Nova.
    Don't let the age thing hinder your cycling. I'll be 62 before Christmas and most days I feel like a kid when riding.

    My commuter

    This is my Castro Valley commuter. Pretty much stock, but I added the Brooks B17 saddle, 32 mm Bontrager tires, rack, and I changed out the stem to get the handle bars up a bit.

    Here are my newest commuters. I am rebuilding my RB-1 and have retired the MB-1, the cracked frame was making me nervous.


    A Centurion Super Elite frameset built up to be a single-speed rain/snow bike. Running Vredestein Campo 700x28's for the snow until I get my Nokians. Yep, that's a bar-end stuck in the middle of the bar to elevate my light over the basket. I will strip and repaint this in the summer.



    A Panasonic DX4000 built up as a fixed-gear (42x17) for the bulk of my commuting. The brass bell rings over bumps, automagically clearing the path ahead of you. Will probably strip and repaint this after the Centurion.



    My wife's MB-3 with new Nitto Promenade bars and kickstand. I will be riding this in the snow once I add a rear brake and get the Nokians. Then back to being a mountain bike in the spring.

    I like this one. I just built up my first MTB on Slicks commuter tonight, a Specialized Hard Rock on Fat Tiogas with a rack/cantis/index shifter, etc. I thought about either moustache or promenade bars and a Brooks to give it some class. Thanks for the pics, I can just about imagine it now.

    Oh, and Kris Pistofferson...I understand why you roll like this now. It's practical as hell.

    I like the little Flash guy on the top bar. If it were me, I think I'd glue him down straddling the top bar with his own set of handlebars.
    Nothing like a little wimsy to lighten up ones attitude, especially with cagers everywhere.

    He is now sitting on the handlebars as I realized he was sitting where the rear brake cable needed to be. If I get him a handlebar then I have to get him a bike too and that's a slippery slope.

    Switched out the promenade bars for risers; just for the winter though. New pix when I get the time.

    Frost is here to stay so I had to put away my commuter roadie. Finished this old Miyata Ridgerunner Team yesterday. Nice ride and for my short commute the 40- 20 singlespeed gearing is good enough. I will also be using it on utility roads in the woods(and in the ski tracks when no one is looking) during the winter.

    the green machine

    After many years of commuting on my mountain or road bike, (15 mile round trip) and thinking about what I really needed in a commuter I finally built up my ulitmate commuter/ultilty bike last spring. I live in the flatlands so a single speed was the obvious way to go. It's a Surly cross-check, decals removed. I've recently crossed the 2000 mile mark on it for the year, and other than some new tires (T-serv's) and a new freewheel, It's just like the day I built it, which is when this picture was taken. Ocaasionally I throw a rear rack on it for groceries and errands, and of course now I've got lighting set up for winter. It's turned out to be everything I'd hoped it would be. I love it.

    Here's mine. Depending on the season and my mood, it might be set up with slicks, knobblies or studded tires:

    This is my latest commuter build. Started out like the one in the pic below. (I bought these both for $75 and my daughter is riding the stock pink and grey one) I've put less than $50 in it for drop bars, stem, bar-end shifters, brake levers and some black spray paint. The tires, seat, racks and fenders I already had on another bike.

    Here is my mine. I got my hands on the Raleigh mountain frame and built it up with some used and some new parts. I just need to get the fenders on it.

    This is my most recent setup of my commuter/everyday ride. An old Wheeler mtb a friend was going to throw out. Mavic rims, generic hub on the front and an axiom s/s disc hub on the back, geared at 42/15 right now. Kenda kwest tires, shimano 105 cranks ($15 for a bargin bin), stem was $2 from a friends store, chopped and flipped drops from a frame I found on garbage night, and new planet bike fenders from MEC.

    I was recently turning heads in Durango, CO with my Airnimal folder - no one had ever seen one.

    Next time you're in Durango try the tamales & tortilla soup at Cocino Linda's located in the Albertson's shopping center.
    Thanks Brian_1, I keep tinkering with it so it looks different week to week. It's a fun bike to play with. Will have to get to Durango one of these days.
