    I agree. I had drops with a slightly raised stem, but found I never used the actual drops and also wanted a more upswept feel.



    Only problem with the chopped drops is that I really have to cram the brakes to fit my hands.
    Not a real issue though.

    This is going be my winter commuter/trainer: Fixified 1989 Trek 660. I didn't have time to get the fenders set up so hopefully tonight's rain will hold off until I get home.

    It is indeed. I took this shot at Tootsie's frozen yogurt stand. When the Legislature's in session, the place is lousy with Members and staff. This week, not so much.

    She did when she was just a young pup, but she grew out of it quickly.
    Your right about making a great companion. She never leaves my side and always helps out. I was raking the leaves today and of course she was right there playing in the piles of leaves!

    I built this up in stages over the last few years. It's a mid-80s Trek 310 with 7-speed Shimano Nexus hub. Upgraded the wheels about ten years ago with Mavic MA-40s which have been fantastic - strong and true. Still experimenting with the positions of everything on the moustache bars, so I haven't taped them yet.

    More of an obstacle to my commuting though, is a nasty intestinal hemorrhage that seems to pop up the day after I ride or do anything else strenuous. Nearly killed me a year ago last week. That keeps me from actually commuting much at all, but I'm dang tired of just looking at my bike hanging in the garage and figured even if I can't get it out on the road where I can appreciate it, I'll get it out on the web where other like-minded folks can. Riding is my inspiration for getting my guts fixed and my body back up to speed. Some day soon I'll be out all the time.

    My recently adopted commuter. A.K.A. Just about the best $100 I've ever spent.



    1999 Diamondback Sorrento SE

    Offroad it's usually missing the lights, handlebar bag, and will have knobby tires.

    Tires: SlickCity ST by Forte
    Seat: Bell (original was torn up)
    Rack: Schwinn
    Das Blinkenlights: Bell (Looking at a Blackburn X3 for up front)
    Handlebar Bag: Bell
    Pump: Blackburn MtnAIR

    Inside the bag:
    * Gerber Evolution multi-tool
    * Screwdriver with bits for every fastener on my bike
    * Spare tube
    * Master Python cable lock
    * Lunch

    On the rack:
    Depends on what I need to take with me that day, but either a laptop bag or duffle bag.

    Also, a really long lash strap wrapped around the support, in case I need to attach something big, or strap a milk crate to the back for carrying stuff.

    It's sort of hard to capture with a cell phone camera, but this is about as clean as my bike will be until I don't know June-ish I think.

    my new bike

    My last frame was a cheap aluminum poc, weld broke at the bottom bracket after 2 yrs commuting. This is what I came up with when I thought about what the ultimate commuting bike would be.
    Surly 1x1 frame
    Shimano nexus 7 hub (to see if I liked internal gears)
    nashbar trekking bars w/reflective cork bartape
    xtracyle attachment -the best thing i have bought for commuting/grocery shopping-going on 3 yrs old
    spiderflex seat- weird but comfy
    hokey spokes on front wheel, to get peoples attention when it's dark.
    eno cranks 38t with a 16t cog in back
    extended my fenders to reduce water/salt spray

    They sell a folding tricycle.



    However, I think garth's bike is pretty cool and quite handy for the car free types.
