Biopace works well at lower RPM, and my girl is NOT a spinner. I think she's usually around 50-60.

Absolutely she does - all of mine have been custom requests. She also has some standards she does (I think cheaper than her custom).
@ the missile! I thought it was a cool touch for the missing plug, and it's definitely the only Cinelli Grammo stem with De Rosa panto.

It's that time of year where I get excited for winter, so even though I won't need it for 2-3 more months I got out my winter commuter and cleaned her up. Yea, the seat's not adjusted, the tail light's still bent from flipping it over, I didn't bother re-clipping the brakes, and the rear tire might be flat... otherwise, wha'dyall think?
i'd call it hot, save for the crotch bag. kills it.
-1 for non-wireless speedometer (with cable wrapped around front brake cable)
-1 for drab background
-1 for tire label not aligned with valve stem
-1 for lack of essential commuter gear such as fenders and lights
+1 for Topeak quick-release trunk with fold out paniers (full disclosure: I have the same trunk)
I would have taken the crotch bag off but the velcro tabs go under the cables and it's a royal pain to get off and on. It carries wallet, keys, reading glasses and repair kit (pronounced "Phone"!!). The white stripe is reflective so I file it under "Safety Items" and, therefore, deem it legal.

The biggest problem here, I think, is the busy background. The bike could be hot, but it's hard to be sure.

Did someone say Xmas bike?
pictures should be darker. i can see too much of the bike.
Okay, here is my daily commute ride.
1982 Peugeot PSV. Crank is the original drilled Stronglight and the shifters are the original Simplex on Retroshift levers, seatpost and stem/bars are original as well. Derailleurs, brakes, hubs, rims have all been changed to Mavic. I built the wheels on Open Pro rims, they are 32/36 3 cross and have stayed true with daily city riding. Fenders are PDW Full Metal Fenders. Lights: Niterider headlight, Trac bar-end lights, blinkies on bar and bag, Serfas on seatstay. I also have lights on my helmet and backpack; I don't use them all at once but it is nice to be visible, it is so dark nowadays.
