    My Everyday Bike

    I have posted pics in the past, but then I realized, I only photographed the custom bikes I built.
    So here now, I post pictures of my everyday workhorse bike.

    It's a Fuji Boulevard.


    Front view.
    What have I added to this bike that is out-of-the-ordinary?
    There is a small yellow fiberglass box, which holds a patch kit, but besides that , what is unusual about this bike?

    I'll give you all some time to think about it, hopefully someone will pick it out.

    Tick tock, tick tock, Bzzzzzzzzzz!

    Okay, No one guessed in the allotted time before the buzzer, so I will give away the answer:
    This bike is a mountain bike with BMX handlebars. The stem and the cables all had to be replaced to make it possible, but for the more upright ride, it's worth it.

    My everyday bike(s)

    Bianchi San Jose 42-15 fixed gear - freewheel for coasting down long hills. I do a climb that averages about 6% for four miles and it's nice to flip the wheel over and coast back down.


    Raleigh Ltd.-3 rear brake has been added since this pic. I ride this to work a lot and also around the neighborhood or around town to look at the funny people. Upright, kinda slow. Don't have a lot of confidence in those rubber pedals, particularly when it's been raining. I think Santa is bringing me some new pedals.
