So I know a bunch of you are using vintage mountain bikes as commuters. I'm talking about mtbs that haven't been polluted by a suspension fork. The cool thing is that they are kinda cheap for nice old bikes and they can be modded in all kinds of ways. So I'm curious what people have been doing to their vintage MTB commuters.
I'll start. I picked up a 1988 stumpjumper comp from craigslist for cheap (complete Deore XT with a u brake in the rear) not too long ago. I haven't done too much to it yet (other than overhaul the bike, change the cables, and mount new tires with a reflective stripe) but I'm planning on doing some mods pretty soon. I'm running two blinkies in the rear (a planet bike superflash and a catetye reflex) and cateye HL-EL600 up front but I'm thinking of adding a dynamo of some type. This is my commuting bike with minimal mods: IMG_0750.jpgIMG_0751.jpgIMG_0752.jpgIMG_0753.jpg
