    Nice commuters guys... I'll get a picture of mine up after I finish "decorating" it so it's less likely to be stolen on campus next year... it's a 2002 Marin Bear Valley, about $800 original price. Had some upgrades like an LX hub rear, Hayes MX-1 disc brake front with mavic 231 disc rims... ODI grips etc. Nothing too exciting. But the Deore components and name brand stuff all over it is making me apprehensive. So far I've painted over all the stuff with Shimano name on it in black and lots of other stuff, soon it will truly be getting a makeover (bad paint job ) lol. The bike itself really had no value before I started doing all this because I rode it hard with no mercy the past few years, but I've heard some horror stories about bikes on big campuses so I'm going all out...

    For now here's a picture as it was right after going through a drop off into a foot of water at Algonquin Park about 2-3 years ago (the fender is now gone and the heavy duty, needless, CNC stem lol).


    And what it would've looked like new...

    was that minnesing trail? that trail is pretty mucky

    anyways, nice bikes people have. here is mine; ugly? yes. but comfortable, and low maintenance. it has slicker tires on it now; the pic was from winter. i need to make it more reflective for next year; maybe some of those cool spoke lights.


    once i get brakes on it, i'll be using this on the nice days to extend my ride on the way back home

    Part of it, I think on the 26km loop there's the small foot drop off or so and there's always mud in low area at the bottom. It was after a heavy rain so the trail wasn't dry. Most of the time it's really nice there with little mud... but if it rains the rock gardens turn into ponds and mud just takes over. Either way that was a fun day when that happened lol. Nice commuters BTW I especially like your Cove!!

    Oh btw here's a pic of that small drop (looks smaller than a foot because the rest is filled with water, I think the ground became solid at my front hub from the looks of it... I love that trail...)

    Anyone have suggestions on how to make my bike look like crap? I'm up for any suggestions because right now it's a blank canvas, it still looks too good, I don't even want thieves to even think about coming near it!!

    Keeping it simple. It's being replaced by a SS road bike.

    Dig the Trek, My girl friend is looking at the model below that (without the cool geared hub) but we cant seem to find a medium to try (she is in between small and medium) I feel like going to the slightly larger size would be good for a street bike but not 100% sure.

    regards

    Funny, the place I went only had mediums. If your not interested in the hub model, the 7.5fx is the supposedly the same frame and comes in many more flavors.

    I was gonna go w/the fx because the hubbed soho was special order only and I didnt get a chance to ride it, but when I found the price was less than the msrp I went w/the soho.

    PS the internal hub is sweet, couple of years those things will be everywhere I bet.

    I hardly notice it when I'm moving but at lights or manuvering in the parking garage can be a bit much. I choose the trailer b/c it allows me to take an ordinary gym bag to work. I can also fold my dress clothes flat (less wrinkles) and the final benifit I can make the whole thing weather proof just puting my gym bag in a garbage bag.

    Marin 29er

    I think she is set on a Soho 1 if it fits, her exact words "fast but comfortable and doesn't look like my moms"

    My commuter and cruiser



    I upgraded my mountain bike to a FS and put 1.75 sized street tires on my hard-tail F7 for a commuter but it was geared to low for pavement and ended up spinning myself silly.

    I bought a Marin Muirwoods 29er after selling the F7 it worked out less that converting the mountain bike and a better riding position for the street. I have over 300 miles on it so far and its really working out great.

    Here is what I have been riding lately...

    It's a 1972 Phillip's Twenty Folder with some modifications: New 406 alloy BMX wheels, alloy post, new fenders, dual drive conversion, and high performance slicks (not shown).

    And the baskets and mirror fold too.

    My working girl

    I can realy post this on "show us your" AM, Xc-race, 29`er , 1x8 realy versatile working girl.

    Ive just put my other commuter on a pension because the rear wheel, bearings and fork were all dead and I couldnt bare using more money on a cheap bike.








    My commute consists of a 17km very hilly, twisty asphalt road at 04.30 to work. As you can see the sun has just started to greet me and I welcome her with open arms after 4 months of riding in the dark. My route is a coastal one and the wind, hail and snow have been a killer this year. I`v e also dropped 18kg body weight which helps my motivation, heaps.



    The way home (weather permitting) however, consists of 6km of asphalt and 20km og pure mtbr bliss!











    I have a pair of rigid niner forks I will be using in the winter and mudguards. I hope the Alfine setup will take the pounding. I ride around 700km a month. Proberbly more sommer time.



    The reson why I do this is because my training/fun only takes up half an hour of family time and I can pick up the kids from school (keeping my wife happy enough for me to spend too much money on my bikes)

    Disclaimer. I now sell bicycles and bicycle tyres.

    Hows the sabrossa? I was gonna get that, but couldnt find one in my area and wound up w/the trek. Is it the Alfine model?

    Hello Wayne,
    The Sabrosa has been all fun. It's not the Alfine model though. Just a 42x16 set up.

    well at least you know can throw onw on in the future if you want.

    I was looking really hard at those sabrossa's online, but couldnt find one at a LBS, what kind/size tire/rim you running? Those things look perfect, fast, but comfy. Thats the biggest beef I have w/my rig, dont think the rear w/take much more than whats already there 700x35.

    The tires are what caught my eye. The tires are Continentals City Contacts that are 28x1.75 but they are large enough to look like 29ers. Odd that Mongoose would spec that size and even more weird is that my local PBS didn't stock any 28" inner tubes. They pointed to another LBS that MIGHT carry that tube size. Anyways, the tires roll great and they are comfy. But they are slow off the line which is no biggie because it doesn't take me much to get them up to speed. I did a couple of errands around town today and had some fun hopping up and down some curbs with this bike. Seems real sturdy right now but time will tell. I was looking at the picture of your new rig (nice looking ride) and I bet your frame would handle the Conti's but I'm not sure if you would need new rims.

    I didn`t think anybody was still selling bikes in the first world that used 28" tires. They do look cool though.
