    Thanks! The Mongoose is simply a beast. Once it starts rolling it goes through just about anything in it's path.

    Your bike actually reminds me quite a bit of mine. I am assuming yours is vintage early 90's?

    I just finished my Karate Monkey, built up for commuting, barhopping, curbhopping, and everything inbetween. I got hit by a car and they shelled out $1200 so I figured I'd go with some decent parts where I could. Phil Wood disc hubs laced to Rhynolites and wearing Michelin skins, Cane Creek headset, 1x9 XT drivetrain w/ Truvativ cranks and a dura-ace friction bar-end shifter, Shimano SPD/platform pedals, Avid BB-7 Disc brakes w/ Dia Compe 287V levers, no-name bar, stem and seatpost, and a honey-colored Brooks B17 to top it off. I've probably been on it about 24 of the last 48 hours or so, and plan on continuing once I'm out of work. I love my new bike.

    Missile du Commuter

    Hey fellow commuters! I ride a round trip commute of 45km (28 miles) to work on this rig. Much of it is in Vancouver weather (think Seattle rains), so fenders are a must. Use a courier bag to bring change of clothes (panniers seem to have me draggin a lot of dirt into office). Shower and secure parking at work, so don't have to park this outside.

    Here's the spec:
    '06 Marinoni Ciclo (Sport touring/Audex frame, custom paint, made in Canada). Carbon fork with eyelet (I've finally chopped the steerer now)
    10sp Campagnolo Centaur brifters
    Campagnolo Veloce deraileurs, bb, compact cranks (50/34) and brakes
    Ultegra cassette (12-25), chain and rear hub. 105 front hub.
    Mavic Open Pro CD rims (700c) with Conti Gatorskins (23c)
    FSA wing bars (flat top, 31.8)
    Selle italia TransAm saddle
    Still to come - Tubus Vega rack, PB Cascadia fenders, SON dyno hub, Carradice racktop bag.


    It's the first 700c bike I've owned after 15 years of 26" bikes. It's also first bike I've had professionally fit and the end result is a much more comfortable commute, rain or shine. I ride this on rec rides on weekends and hope to do some "credit card touring" and audex in the summer.

    Just got it Friday night. Changed out the stem and bars. Awaiting a new seatpost. Still debating on ordering some metal clips of putting some ATACS on it.


    edit: sorry about the pic quality. Camera phone after a lunch time ride.

    Here is my Thorn Raven Tour. Not everyone's cup of tea but I built it up to be just about the perfect commuting bike for me. I love the dynohub and the LED headlight and taillight with the standlight feature. The dynamo system is turned on most all of the time, the HID is turned on for about half of the commute. I was worried about the eccentric bottom bracket because I hate any little creaks but it's been great. Except for the typical Rohloff noise in certain gears this bike is completely silent.

    Wow, mr. Duggle, this is almost exactly my dream bike! Congratulations.

    Anyone know how to clean drool from a keyboard?

    I am looking for the PB Cascadia Fenders to see if they will fit my bike.
    Would you like a dream with that?

    Duggle,
    that's a sweet Raven. But do you actually commute with it? I mean, don't you ever need to make a stop at a store or an errand on the way home, and if so, do you feel comfortable locking it up on the street?

    This is the only thing that I commute with now. I commuted for the last four years with an MTB that is worth twice as much and I don't carry a lock with me. I VERY rarely stop on the way home and if I do I make sure I can take the bike inside with me and keep a very close eye on it, this has only been at Bike Warehouse or Performance Bike shops. Since my wife seems to love to shop this hasn't been a problem, she does enough for both of us. At work I put my bike inside the server room which requires badge entry and only a few people have access to (I'm the network admin).

    The great thing about commuting on this is that I can cut through Rose canyon for five miles of dirt each way (total commute is 32 miles RT) and there are other fun options to hit along the way. The problem with commuting with this bike was that I got tired of carrying a camelback and the wet back you get on the way to work. I started doing things like adding a handlebar bag or Odysee suspension rack which kind of ruined the performance of the bike and made it less fun anyway.

    Very nice bike.

    I have one question regarding your taillights. How does the Cateye TL-LD1000 compares to wired taillight (DToplight?) you have on the rear fender?

    And one suggestion for further improvement.
    For your dynamo headlight, there are two really interesting alternatives:

    – The DLumotec, which is their LED version. About as bright, though a little bit more diffuse, which should not be a problem when you go fast since you have a HID also. The beauty is that it reaches full power at 2 km/h and that it never burns. For randonneuring or other such night-long forays, you could add a Schmidt secondary E-6 and get dual generator headlighting.

    – The Schmidt E-6 has a more defined beam that lights the road further away. I switched from a Lumotec to a Schmidt this spring and it's incredible.
