    Halloween Bicycles (Post your pics!)

    Just out of curiosity, is anyone giving their bike a ghoulish motif for some Halloween rides? I've seen some Frankenbikes on BF that don't need much dressing up.

    Post pics!

    It's not specifically a Halloween bike, but I can just ride around with a safari outfit and a tranquillizer *** and I'll bet set.



    Built, and quite mangled from usage.

    I don't plan on decorating my bike for Halloween, but I've already got Christmas lights on my bike.

    I meant to say I did it on my commuter bike because I'll going to start commuting in the dark due to the time change.

    this has got to be the strangest setup I've ever seen, major TT position, ridiculously low bars, uncut steerer (painted steerer?!?!?!), fenders, racks, and bags, what the heck? From the "mangled with usage" comment, I take it you've been riding like this for a while and have plenty of time to fix these problems

    You might call them "problems", I call them "features"
    (except the steerer tube, I've been meaning to cut that for a while now...)

    I have a black recumbent and scored a Darth Vader costume for $1.50 at a thrift store, complete with body cover / cape / shoulder shroud and utility belt. I already had the hat and chestplate. I was thinking about riding into work one day in full garb but unfortunately I work on a military installation with mandatory helmet and reflective vest policy. Not sure anyone would "get it" if I had to take the mask off ...

    A spider attached itself to my Domane. For 72 miles it read off the Garmin stats for me.

    May your tires or beer never be flat.
