Since I've been commuting regularly for a couple weeks and decided I'm definitely hooked on it, I figured starting a thread about my bike (and I'm sure that "bike" will be "bikes" someday) would be a good idea as I'm sure it will be going through a number of changes over the years. It's already looking considerably different than it did a month ago.
Here's my bike as of 6/7/2013 completely stock with the exception of the saddle. It's a 1998 Nishiki Blazer, bought it new from the LBS in 2001.
I tried out some Kenda K838 26x1.95 slicks but eventually decided I like my Continental TourRIDE 26x1.75 tires the best.
Shimano Acera 21 speed drivetrain with trigger shifters, nothing fancy.
Cateye Commuter wireless computer, I lost my Strada >.<. Oh well.
Mirrycle Handlebar Mirror and Ergon GP1 Large grips (grips are a total hand saver!)
Added some silver PB Cascadia fenders.
Got my cargo rack today (7/11/2013)! A Topeak Explorer.
Topeak MTX basket (7/15/2013) Gave the frame a bath and thoroughly cleaned the drivetrain. Minus the second bottle cage, this is what it looks like now. (8/30/2013)
Upgrades still to come:
Trunkbag/panniers (maybe...I've kinda been thinking about sticking with the basket and backpack setup.)
