Show Some Dirt!

It's understandable that a lot of the photos we post of our C&V bikes are glam shots. Here's a thread to show some dirt and grime.

Here's my Jackson at the end of the commuting week:

Some day I need to get around to removing the vestigial fender bracket.

I happen to think my bike looks happier when it is dirty - maybe some of my memories are held in the grime

And I know a bunch of other riders who feel the same as I do
