My front panniers, not shown, are Axiom Oceanweave panniers.
The front rack bag is a system of three bags, one on top, and one hanging to each side. It is a ten plus year old bike nashbar branded bag.

@KRS thanks for responding I thought it was all in one. Looked like a nice bag to have when riding with my son for tools, snacks, tubes, snacks, etc haha

Here's my latest project and daily commuter:

A slightly overkill, fully homebrewed, full carbon, 1x11 Di2/Ultegra/XTR/Force1/Cosmic Pro flatbar. It's as fun to rip through the streets of Copenhagen on it as it is silly.

had some extras done to my CX/Commuter/Roadie hybrid

Robert Axle Project threaded through axle replacing the R.A.T on the rear
Shimano HG601 chain
Pair of Shimano RT56 160mm 6 bolters
pair of Alex Rims XD-Lite's with Velocity light weight hubs and D.T Alpine III black spokes

in the mail:
700x32c Conti 4-season to replace the Rocket Rons as my commuter tyre
Fabric Scoop Elite Flat to try out in replace of the Specialised Romin Evo

I've had a Thomson Elite seat post and Steel Matte Black fork for a while. Flipped the stem and added a spacer for a more upright position.

Overall pretty happy!

Midnight Special on its first morning commute


I bought this Midnight Special yesterday. Brooks saddle, pedals, and Tubus rack swapped from my Specialized.

I see the Surly logo, and the disc brakes; is that a Straggler?

I started mixing in my new Cannondale Synapse in as a backpack commuter. Flat pedals because itís still too cold in the morning for my spd shoes.

Why would you want to trim those ^^^^^ stays? Don't those act to keep the back bottom corner of the pannier from swinging into the spokes?

BTW, does that rear rack set the pannier back pretty far?

I have been using this one. Nothing special, it is a Bikes Direct with some fenders and Wald racks. I doubt I would recommend this model because the rear hardpoints are a problem to actually use. Yes, it is an e-bike. The motor is a Tongsheng TSDZ2, no throttle, just the torque sensors. . . how do you make it go? By pedalling it.

This has been my commuter for the last couple of months.

This bike has been through a few different configurations (drop bar, north road, flat bar), but I plan to keep it like this for awhile.

Sweet ride, try aerogel footbeds to insulate the cleats, very effective

Drop bars off, straight bar back on. I get indexed shifting back, too, woot woot. After several months just wasnít loving the drop bar on this bike, maybe itís the geometry, I dunno.




Iím gonna try commuting on this one for a while as well, it rides much better with drop bars:
