My 2012 Surly Cross Check. It could hit 20,000 lifetime miles by the end of the year.

I just bought a second-hand SPZ Tricross frameset.
With some parts that I've been saving from other projects, I got this beauty:

Here's my current commute machine, a Giant Contend AR. It's a very capable gravel and all-road bike that happily carries panniers, and I'd have fenders on but I live in a dry climate.

I am not commuting, but I do ride around all the time, local coffee shop, thrifts (Where I get my bikes, and everything else I can) Grocery......So this find from the thrift the other day will be an official keeper. Need a celeste seat, which will be a Selle SMP, but otherwise I see no need to do anything else. Current seat works fine for now.

I don't have a dedicated commuter and just use what I feel like for the day. My Orro Terra C gets the most use for commuting I guess. Below is it set-up for wet weather/winter riding with 32mm pirelli cinturato velos, mudguards, and my bar mitts. I use a 6 litre saddlebag for my work clothes and shoes and a hip pack for keys, lunch, and other bits.



Here it is in summer mode, with 40mm Hutchinson Touregs and a full frame bag, which has a 3 litre hydration bladder in it. In the summer, I will quite often extend the ride home with a 25 mile+ gravel route.

Sometimes, I take the summer road bike if the weather is nice (50-50 split between this and the Orro during nice weather). I can even fit my coffee in a bottle cage. Sometimes I use a small backpack, and other times I will use my 6 litre saddlebag for my change of clothes/shoes.


And a couple of times a month during TT season, this is used to commute on. It is not the most practical commuting in a skinsuit and aero helmet, but it can be quick. I either take my clothes in a small backpack, or take double the day before and leave a set at work.

My Bridgestone 300, I love this bike, especially since it was $10 and in rough shape when I got it! I kind of dig the odometer even though it's hard to read the numbers (I think 500 miles).

Winter commuter.

My Bridgestone MB-5 is both my daily commuter to work and play. 'Coffee Outside' - Every Sunday morning in and around NE Mpls. Recovery Bike Shop organises it. An informal gathering of winter bicyclists and bicyclists in general.

This is my newest addition for use in commuting. It is a bikes direct gravity avenue flat bar road bike with a rock bros trunk bag that has side panniers. I am happily surprised at how useful the trunk bag is. Also surprised at how light the bike is.

It's been a long time since I logged or posted here. I've lost my wife at way too young an age (still picking up the pieces of my life from that), moved cross country (UT --> FL) to start a new job, and am now part time caring for my mother (she is in a care home nearby).

I've updated the livery on my Velo (vinyl wrap). This is my main commuter here.

Before and after:

So a couple weeks ago I lost my mind and bought a set of panniers to match my older handlebar and saddle bag. Unfortunately to get that big handlebar bag to fit right I had to swap the stem and flit it but everything fits and lies up nicely.

Notso_fastLane sorry to hear about your circumstances but good to see you. The livery is cool with the prewar Flying Tiger mouth and the Normandy stripes

Heres my MTB next to a deep new hole along the commute

Found this Schwinn Criss Cross on CL a few months back and finally got it together a couple weeks ago. It's a tank! I'm guessing it weighs about 30 pounds without the pannier. It has a stupid-long top tube; someting like 24". Totally goofy geomertry, but it's partially tamed with a dirt drop stem and having the bars and seat level. Great rain bike! No land speed records for this one, but with the lugged frame with vertical dropouts, a Velocity Dyad 36 spoke wheelset and Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires, you WILL get there.
