What is the bike you use?

Ok, I open this post (I dont know if there is another one like it) just to know the type of bike you use, the bikes you use, put a picture if you decide to and any accesories you have put into the bike.

I own a Giant Boulder MTB 2008. It has 21 shifts, a shimano trigger shifter, kick stand, computer. It has a rear blink light. Front 1 80mm suspension. Only one bottle holder. A GIRO sticker xD

Giant OCR 2, 2006. It has a rear rack which I add panniers to when commuting, grocery panniers for shopping and sometimes a rack trunk bag. Two bottle holders, two headlights and a rear blinkie (need to get a better rear light) and yes....a kickstand! Oh the horror.

This vintage 1972 Bottecchia Giro d'Italia is my main ride:



I take this modified vintage 1974 Peugeot UO8 (with cross tires mounted) for riding the MUP and gentle off-road trails:



I ride this Panasonic PT-3500 to work every day and to run errands - I have panniers and lights for it:



I use this Bianchi for fast club rides:



I take the Bianchi Pista for fixed gear riding:



And I use this Marin for mountain biking (yes that's yours truly ):

I use this for commuting, weekend rides:


I use this for short trips to the beach, anywhere I leave it chained up unattended:


I use this to practice my DIY repair/tuning. I'd rather **** up a free piece of crap than something I actually like. Although I do plan on restoring it to proper working order in time for winter fun time

I don't have current pictures..but..I ride a Scott SUB 30. changes: toe clips/straps, ergon grips, cyclocomptuer, Hemp cycle bag, rear blinkie. I have fenders and a rack, but don't really like either. pump and water bottle are in backpack.

next upgrade will be puncture resistant tires. then powergrips.

This is my road ride. I am not the first owner, but I may be the last. It is a really sweet bike.

A 2006 Trek Portland is my default bike. I bought it new as a leftover, 51 weeks ago and have put 4,600 miles on it so far. It's my four-season daily commuter and grocery-getter. It's also my first choice for social rides, and any ride over 40 miles. With a tire swap, I take it off-road too. It's a fast yet refined ride.




My second bike is a Y2K Trek 1000. I bought it used--or rather abused--for $100. Then I threw away most of it--keeping only the frameset, stem, bars and brake calipers--and rebuilt it. It's my fast and frisky fun ride bike. It's like a puppy--it always wants to run and play. I have to be careful because Yellow Bike always pulls a few extra watts out of me, whether I want to or not. The rack lets me commute with it when I'm in the mood.

Pretty much ever forum here has a "Sticky" with a thread containing photos of people's bicycles.

I've got a 2007 GT Legato 3.0. I've really enjoyed it. Kinda looking around for an offroad bike now.

Mine is a bit different... it's a 1985 Fuji Sagres Mixte, I changed it into a semi-utility/touring bike, it's one of the most fun bikes I have rode in years.

If your talking about my Mixte frame Fuji up above, they are not that rare, but you don't really see them everyday... But, they are a really popular frame style. Go to "Search the Forums" at the top of the page, and put in Mixte as a search word, and you will find a 14 pages or so of thread with pictures of hundreds of Mixtes in the Classic & Vintage forum... Called "show us your Mixte (Mechindrics new happy Place)...

If you were not talking about my bike, please ignore this message...
