    I added a couple things to the old Schwinn, a new seat, bar tape, saddle bag and a different crank set from another bike in the shed. Here's a shot of the path warrior on the path. I also made similar changes to the Gary Fisher Zebrano along with new pedals and a wireless computer. I need to get some pics of that one yet.

    No fenders will be put on it because I live in the desert, and no rear rack because I like my backpack. Primary use will be as a recreational/fitness machine.

    In looking back at this thread I am amazed at the wide variety of bikes used on bike paths all accross our great nation. What shocks the heck out of me is HOW MUCH ALL THE ACTUAL BIKE PATHS LOOK THE SAME!

    as you can see, i have 2 bike glows, purchased before halloween (8 lucious colors). i just love 'em. the add-on before them is a ram mount for my elderly gps. the add-on before that is an alien light up front (made by topeak, in several delicious colors). other mods were to make me ride upright (awful neck injury) + orthopedic stuff.

    everyone's bikes are great looking and have given me some ideas on how to add weight to the bike- not counting overeating!

    If that's the kind of bike you need to ride the bike paths near you I suggest a grass roots campaign to get some trail work done! (of course "path" might have a different meaning to you.....)

    Depends on what you mean by "bike path" as around here that can be anything from a concrete MUP through the city park, to gravel rail to trail projects, to unpaved trails through the hills along the rivers. This is my multi-surface, general purpose bike. Low gears and lots of tire.
    Lead, follow or get out of the way

    Giant Cypress DX. To date, still the most comfortable bike I've ridden.

    Time to knock the cobwebs off this thread. Just got this on the road, since the picture was taken I've added lights and a handlebar bag and I'll be installing a rear rack soon. It is my "all around" bike but will probably replace my TREK 820 for paved bike path duties. The TREK with it's wider tires will still be used for the more primitive trails.
