    I was going to wait to post pictures of my bike in this thread until I had gotten a silver stem and silver cranks, but whatever. It is perhaps the dorkiest bike in the city of Denver, kickstand and...

    Oh, I think anything that works is perfect in my book. This bike gets what I need done. My comment was more toward the people who think a folding bike HAS to be a brand new Brompton or BF. Beautiful...

    Yes, I live in Denver, and I am a long time bike commuter. This was for a project I have in Newport Beach, CA though. I am working for Intel on an acquisition, but I really didn't want to A. be...

    For the record, I got my answer today. I brought my check-in-bag with me, and sure enough it fits PERFECTLY with zero disassembly. The Getaway V may be a completely obsolete and gigantic POS, but it...

    The Rush Hour is also a great bike. Good frame and step above on fit and finish. The Kilo TT is your best value hands down though. Glad you "saw the light" on the Kilo, because the "custom" chromed...

    The hub is certainly a flip flop style hub. You always have to purchase a freewheel on completes like this, the exception is all the bottom barrel crap bikes, which use the tactic of throwing in a...

    Buying on style is a recipe for disappointment. While it's certainly important to be able to enjoy looking at a bike, buy on value over style.

    The Kilo TT Pro is awesome for the price, and it will...

    I have a pair of Ovis, and they are awesome. Not a velcro fan so I can't comment on that part. They are excellent casual shoes though and enable me to wear the same pair of shoes to work as I do...

    Well, here's my one and only bike currently. I like to think it's a townie, the only checkbox it doesn't notch is swept back uprights, but I honestly find them incredibly uncomfortable.

    Mine works, but only barely enough to prevent the skunk stripe. You will still get grime allllllll over your drive train, and your feet will still be soaked. To me, fenders need to do more than...

    Few pictures of what has become my main commuter lately. New bar tape, champagne cork bar ends, PB rack added a bit ago. The biggest upgrade, by far, has been my addition of a Mavic CXP-22 wheelset....
