    No - Jen Green - I posted a link above.

    Otherwise, yeah, pretty hot.
    Ehhh - it's a commuter and that's how she likes the bars. The saddle is butt ugly, but it works - and no one sees it while she's riding. I actually like that seatpost design, but to each their own.

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

    i don't see either of those on her site - but i haven't explored a lot yet.

    does she do custom ones? like if you give her a design?
    EDIT: nevermind, i found the custom ones.

    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?

    Speaking of which, the headlight is hidden on the left side of the fork so I can hang my handlebar bag!

    I like the clever way you've utilized a bungee cord to hold the rack up.
    If you're not riding with a psychedelic gecko on your shirt, you ARE having a substandard experience.

    -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)

    Details here.

    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.

    This is an interesting beast. I like the look of the bullhorns, but I don't like the brake levers (particularly their placement). I'm a big fan of the 8-speed Shimano bar end shifters for commuting.

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

    7/10...you get points off for having the front brake undone and the droopy taillight, but I like the beefy lock and bungee cords.

    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.

    Very nice! Excellent execution. Great job on the handlebar tape too. What going on at the seat stay, is that some sort of wrap?

    Somebody's gonna ding you a few points for the angle of the saddlebag and the untidy velcro strap on the battery pack, might as well be me.
    Everyone hates your lights. Throw them away & buy something civilized.

    That is just a bit of extra bar tape, stuck on the seatstay to protect it where I lean the bike to lock it up . The bars need re wrapping, it's been a year and the ramps are looking pretty ratty.

    The battery pack bugs me, more than just the loose strap, I wish it were inside the saddlebag but the cable isn't long enough. I may buy a Knog Blinder Road soon, as it is more compact and tidy. The Niterider mini newt is not that bright, I doubt the Knog would be much dimmer.

    As for the saddlebag, unfortunately the Bagman support only comes in one size so the small Carradice sits at that droopy angle.
