    And yes I use the drops. Last night I used them for at least 10 miles of my commute, evil headwind.

    Yup. It comes in pretty handy to store a few extra AAs, cell phone, wallet, lock keys and my glasses. Now that it is winter I use it to put my knee/arm warmers while not in use.
    Edit: Dang my carport walls look much dirtier in that photo I guess I got weekend cleaning duties

    Newest addition and my current favorite fair-weather commuter. A 53cm IRO from the group buy over in the SS/FG forum.

    Gosh dang it! I both look forward to and dread what bike 65er will show next!
    Look forward to because they are always fun and interesting.
    Dread because I don't like envying the sick deals he finds and....

    I want a folder! I do many one-way commutes, and it would be so handy to toss in the car! No removing the bike's front wheel and folding up the car seat!

    Those little wheels would make for a slow ride home though, no matter how big a chainring you got.

    hairlessbill - that is one stylin fast looking commuter ya got there. What frame is that?

    evblazer - Hey fellow Xtracycle rider! Rockin rig! Mines a 26"er, on an old Specialized Rockhopper. I have to get it ready for winter snow commuting!

    Cody - I'm gonna run out of bikes to post.. eventually.

    The Twenty is a great bike if you are into vintage rides... newer folders are lighter and faster but I don't think many are nearly as tough and utilitarian.

    When I borrow the car from my ex I take the Twenty as I can stash it in the back of our old Nissan hatchback or fold it up and tuck it into a corner at her store.

    A big misconception is that small wheeled bikes are slow and nothing could be farther from the truth... my Twenty has been re-geared so I can pull a trailer but the top gear still allows for a cruising speed of nearly 30 kmh.

    It's fun to blow by people on full sized bikes on the Twenty.

    It's an old Swallow. Non-Titanium copper colored steel? Heavier than it looks but pretty comfy on the right bike. Bought it used about 10 years ago.

    Its too small, the fizik pave hurts my ass after 15 miles, the paint is laced with battle scars and the tape is unravelling, but it gets me where I want to go, and where I don't want to go, too.

    Within the week I will have my road bike all repaired and built up: powdercoated steel frame of unknown origin with shimano 600 wheels, 8 speed dura-ace deraileurs and downtube shifters. I'll no longer have to take a break halfway through my commute to let my legs stop screaming!
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    Updated picture of my commuter: (before on the left, after on the right) click for a bigger version



    Since this picture I have re-attached the front brakes and swapped the rear rack for one that has a flat top panel.

    Still to do:

    - swap the front triple crank for a single, probably a sugino or bontrager one, depends what deals i can find
    - fit fenders for when the weather starts to deteriorate

    The feel of the bike is much better since I swapped the old stem and handlebar out for the newer items, and the 5050 pedals are great for everyday use.

    Hardy, those tires are just rediculous!! I ask you before, but I cant remember the answer.....What size tires are those? Something like 26x 4?

    I dont think I could keep from smashing into curbs, shopping carts, what ever with that thing. Please tell me you have a computer on it. Whats max/average speed?

    Sixty Fiver, have you given us an actual bike count yet? I know i seen to see a different one atleast once a week!

    BTW, while Im here, I may as well post this that I picked up a few hours ago. I still need a few adjustments (especially the seat ) and a dry day before its maiden voyage. T-T length seems perfect but seat tube is a little big. Hard to find a bike my size (im 5'6") without ebay and spending more then the bike is worth to ship it. I like it alot so far. Hopefully it will be dry tomarow. Doubtful though. So I'll be on the old hobo bike

    MBGS - I think that when I counted them up this morning I had 12 bikes at the ready and there are 2 in the works.

    Hardy - I just love the Pugs.

    You have eliminated the last argument I could muster against my lust for a folder. I must have one.

    HardyWeinberg - rock the Pug. I envy you that.

    texastwister - I love that silver frame and that TT sticker. Is that a 66cm frame? I just struck me because I have been trying to find a cheap road bike in my tiny town and I have managed to find two old ones super cheap, but they are both 64cm frames! I'm 5'10".

    MyBikeGotStolen - dig yer bikes! When you gonna wrap them trekkers? I shouldn't talk, I haven't wrapped mine either. Rock the milk crate! I put a store bought imitation milk crate on my new beater bike and I like how much lighter it is. The only thing I don't like about the hurkin milk crate on the front of my Bruiser bike is that it is heavy even empty and makes steering ponderous.

    cody, I actually have a roll of tape on the way from nashbar right now, I know I have been talking about it since May.

    I also have a pair of the $30 Nashbar Daytrekker panniers that I use for work. The milkcrate is on there on school days so I can put my backpack full of books in it so I dont get to school all sweat backed. I have it on a homemade quick release mechanism (ok its just tied on there with rope ) I know what you mean about the weight, that thing does have some weight to it. Of course my work just threw away a store bought "weight weenie" crate the other day on my day off. I'm mad because I'm too cheap to by a milk crate right now

    Yep

    It's a total bumper-car-palooza. I can hop up onto curbs but the rear wheel definitely just jams and goes up, cannot elevate the whole bike (yet).

    No computer, but no meaningful change in my net commute time when I take it on the direct route (usually when I commute on it I take much more scenic and ah textural paths)
