I carry my work bag, if I go shopping I have a big bag. This really is just a commuter. This is my school commuter, it's a 1992 George Longstaff tandem trike. Grtz from Belgium.

The orange highlights seem counter-intuitive but actually work out pretty well, nice look.

This is the last year I will carry her to school :-( the bus takes over as the distance is further. My two children never took to cycling really like I did as a kid. The infrastructure here is very good but they are just like many modern kids which is a shame. Ah well.

Now that the weather has improved, I'm back to commuting on my much preferred Motobecane Grand Jubile. The smoothest bicycle I've ever had the pleasure of riding.

Nice ride man.

I'm going with the standard front seat when she's young and the rear seat at she gets bigger. For nursery runs and the like.

Also digging the STIHL cap.

My ride, bought it last year. The bike rack I lock up at is in the middle of the vegetation. They at least keep it trimmed for me.

My baby, Pretty Purple Princess Penelope. She's still a work in progress, but I've been riding her all week and loving it. I'll be posting this pic all over, because she's worth showing off.

Thanks for the rabbit hole. Those are some extremely nice bags; this is my favorite. I also found Ellum Bag Works with this very nifty bag. Pricey, but I can pick my color and it has zippers! You are an evil human being. Just so you know.

My 2004 Bianchi Volpe is my favorite longer distance, faster commuter bike. I have different job sites that I ride to as very much as possible.
I usually end up riding the Volpe or my 1991 Bridgestone MB4 as they are the most fun to ride.
Non drive side, I know....

For the most part, yes. Pretty safe riding around. I'm in Carmel so very safe to ride here. I use the MUP's mainly but when I'm on the roads I don't have any issues. My D rides for her sorority bike team so she is always on the roads training. Its a bit more congested for her when she is home but she rides all over Bloomington when shes down at IU without any issues.

1990 Voyageur touring bike

I've been riding my Voyageur touring bike to work since I sold my Norco hybrid. The double butted and lugged steel frame makes for a great ride feel. I just wish our roads were in better shape. My front wheel needs truing after a few months of the constant jarring from broken asphalt. It is a 1990 model that I have gone through and refreshed with new bearings and grease. I think the drivetrain is getting a little worn after 30 years but it still runs smoothly and quietly.

Finally brought this beauty home. It's a little slower than my regular recumbent going up hill, but it flies on level ground, or down hill! Average speeds are 4-5 mph faster (net).

I donít even remember if I posted a pic of this one in this thread but hereís the latest iteration of my Ď83 Voyageur. Iíve been riding it since April and really like it. I have a pair of high flange hubs Iím thinking about having a friend lace up to some 700c rims. I might keep it as a 5 speed w/ triple crank as it works pretty well and I donít shift much anyway.

Don't remember when the last time was I posted in here...

Still have the same '84 Raleigh Sportif as my main bike (pic take on my morning commuter in March):


And just recently added this '74 Raleigh Super Tourer to my stable also for commuting/towning/grocerying/etc (Pic taken this morning on its maiden voyage)

Looks like a sweet ride. How'd the shakedown cruise go?

It was good. The old brakes suck though. Not sure if itís the old calipers or the old levers - so Iíll probably have to replace those.
The whole thing was a restoration with almost all original parts.
Its a tank, but I love the thicker tires they definitely made a difference compared to the 700x28 on my other bike.
I need to figure out a way to mount a tail light.
