    Well I finally took pictures of my bike tonight, and noticed some interesting damage, too...



    Crappy dark shot, sorry:

    Excuse the cat, this is with the visible damage to the left bar-end that I did with my wrist in August. The bar part swivels around/is loose, so I can't crank on it much (though I do use the corner of the bracket to switch up my hand position) - I need some loctite for it, is all.


    And the damage I found:


    Firstly, there's a screw missing (which is what caught my eye), but on closer inspection, the next eyelet is sheared off the inner part (forgive me for not knowing the names of the parts) - I do want to replace/switch up my gearing to get some taller gears, but don't know exactly what I'm going to do about this yet. This certainly explains the creaking I've been hearing just the past couple of days.

    Anyway, that's my el cheapo ride.. It gets me from A to B, I love it.

    Garth, is there any way you can put up a photo of that front wheel thing in the dark? I'm curious how it shows up.

    EDIT: ^^^^^^WTF IS WITH THE QUOTE LOL, oh well too lazy to fix it. ^^^^^^^

    Yeah when it gets cold plastic gets real brittle. Also water tends to freeze, witch caused me to fall/crash!

    And i use "caterpillar" steal toes for the cold, and there a size too big so i can fit more socks, so i don't freeze. So i guess i clipped it with the toe of the boot during the slip.

    All the "coldness's" fault!

    And the frame is a bit short

    Pics of my backup. Parked in front of the Central Library in downtown KC, next to the Trek 820 belonging to a guy who I see commuting every day (he works there at the library, no clue how far in he rides, he isn't too talkative, I haven't ever asked him where he rides in from)



    Bought it used for $80 on craigslist last week. It's a 1998, and it had less than a mile on it when I got it. I swapped on the 8-speed wheels from my Sorrento to see how she rides on the slicks. Works like a champ.

    My commuter for now. It's a 1982/1983 Schwinn Super Sport SP. Bought the bike for $80 off Craigslist earlier this year - since then I've put about that amount again into parts. I'm personally fond of that understated-but-not-out-of-date look.

    That Schwinn is a classic.

    Hey, caloso, remember me? Long time no post!! Still commuting, though!! Still doing the San Jose thing. Zillions of miles on various commuter bikes.

    I'll check in more formally soon. I just recall many of your posts in the past. Glad to see you're still at it.

    Running late this morning but still got to work before almost everyone else. Thank goodness for cool weather and sweaters. I didn't need to cool off at all and didn't need to worry about a pressed shirt, just threw on the wool sweater and got straight to work.
    Safe, efficient, and comfortable transportation.

    Here's how my commuter is shaping up. Next comes fenders and my MR16/SLA based geeky light system.

    Here is my commuter for this year. I tried to keep it simple and fast. My commute is short, so pretty much any handlebar would work, but this one is pretty simple.

    finally...

    After 3 months of planning, dreaming, window shopping, etc. I finally have a bike - and I didn't even have to buy it. A good friend of mine in the Marine reserves is deploying next month - and he offered me a long-term loan on his MTB, which will now become my primary means of transport.
    Here it is - with red Michelin Hot S tires...
    It's a Trek 8000 -

    Future Plans:
    Fenders, Rear Rack w/ Waterproof Panniers, Front and Real Lights, Slick Tires, Platform Pedals, Rigid Fork...

    This is my daily commuter, though most of the other bikes on this thread put it to shame:



    It's a crummy road bike that I converted to a fixie when I got hit by a car and needed a new rear wheel.
