Show your C&V commuter parked at work

Parked in a rack, locked to a pole, in your office, or wherever your bike lives while you are on the job...

Some of you ride in with full racks and panniers, some of you with a backpack and a race bike... let's see them all.

I feel lucky to have an office with room for a bike. No windows, though, since it's in the basement.

This is about the best I can do:



1971 Raleigh Int'l w/ front Wald basket, rear Cannondale computer bag/pannier and an REI grocery pannier, RHM recovered saddle. I took this pic because I wanted one of that orange Public bike parked next to me. This spot is protected from rain/snow, so I don't lock the bike there on clear days, but a pic of that spot would be equally uninspiring.

^ Two sweet bikes. I want an International! And nlerner, I am thinking that most of these (including mine) won't be the most beautiful photos, but it *will* be inspiring to see these great bikes as they are used.

My sunny day commuter. Thankfully, I have a good size office with plenty of room for the bike.

Don't have an office, so the bike has to live outside. Taken as I was leaving work today:

Finally, an outlet for my work basement dungeon pix! Tight space, so there's always some wideangle distortion. I'm not a great wheelsmith, but none of my wheels are oval, photographic evidence to the contrary.

In build year order:

'76ish Peter Mooney. Fixie conversion w/Philcentric bb & vertical drops. Had this built 650B for a while, only fits 32mm 650B tires, recently went back to 700C wheels, fits 25mm OK. This is an early frame for Peter, #044 .



'90 Serotta Custom CX, built by Greg Fuqua. First pic is first build, w/Open Pro rims, Alamanzo knobbies, Campy Daytona post, Acorn seatpack. Recently retooled w/Aksium wheels, 32mm Vittoria Voyager Hypers, Thomson post, Carradice SQR Tour pack. Needed more space for fall/winter gear, don't do any real mud/cx so the knobbies are affectation, und so weiter. This is Greg's personal CX race frame from '90, won't take tires wider than 32mm, no bottle cages, etc. Neat machine.




'05 Waterford RS-22, I'm claiming KOF exception for this one. Road-Sport geometry, Sachs Newvex lugs (stainless at head tube/fork), mildly OS tubing. Might plane if you're a lardass like me. My only white frame. Built for 700C wheels, but I stuck in 650B just 'cause. A little too tight w/Hetres, but looked awesome w/Red Hetres. These Soma 38mm B-Lines fit well, ride nice. Me likey. Please forgive the zip ties, couldn't wait for proper cable clamps to ride it.




Might have something else to post tomorrow night, depending on the weather/whether. Whether I ride in tomorrow depends on the weather, and whether I wake up early enough...

6x9! It's really funny to see when one of my more "petite" students is carrying it.

p.s. Wow - what a group of bikes you have!

Parked in front of work.

I have since replaced the Campag. crankset with Nervar Star, because of a crack across the shoulder of the left crank, and I have shortened the brake cables and changed from sprint/half to full wrap on the handlebars.

Not a great picture, but it is a recent one, which is important, because the configurations of my bikes are prone to change.

Doesn't seem to be a problem so far on my campus, but I don't leave the bike overnight, which is when most of the thievery occurs. I've noticed that a couple of the bikes that are regularly parked where I put mine are now missing rear wheels.

My new '87 Kuwahara summit comp pro in the office on it's first commute. Picked it up from a recycled bike shop in town and have been fixing it up over the past couple of weeks.

Here is my initial writeup of the bike. Since then I replaced the cassette with an 11-32 and added cyclocross levers. Plus a Blackburn Mountain rear rack.
