    Post pictures of your quiver/stable/bikes/etc...

    We've got the "Post your commuter" thread, but how about a "Post all of your commuters" thread?

    I finally got good "summer" pictures of all my rides, and figured it was time to put together a family album:







    Mine all have a pretty strong family resemblance: steel, rigid, ss or fixed, big tires, pannier rack, stripey...but each has its own personality.

    2 fixed, 1 fat.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    These are my two main transport bikes. The Trek gets the snot beat out of it year round, and the basket bike I built in a frame building class with Mike Flanigan of ANT bikes. I love the basket bike, I just can't stomach purposely exposing it to rain or snow. I might try to build a clone I won't be so attached to.


    I have a fixed gear hipstermobile I use for light cruising and fitness and a moutain bike.

    +++ I've never been inclined to fabricate a bike until now.

    ^ I investigated mainly one with the Schwinn but had no access to the tools and a guide. I would enjoy a thread on it.

    Stock farley
    RM trail head with dropper post
    Schwinn moab

    I just got the farley but have been commuting on it half the week (legs stronger and makes me alot faster switching to the 29er). Im able to ride single track 90% of my 11km commute, it does really well on dirt but cant wait to try it this winter.

    Trailheads a cheaper 29er but had decent components that could cheaply be replaced but not let me down (deore and slx) was going to get a hybrid but i thought i would destroy it of curbs and pot holes. I did wreck this ones rear wheel and needed to get it re hand laced with dt swiss 2.0 spokes. Also now that im taking the single track over the pave im glad i got it over the rm whistler i was going to get.

    Had the moab since 1998, road the crap out of it till i went to college and so on. Got back i to biking 2 years ago and commuted on it for a summer. I put studs on it and ran it this winter. Now it has halo twin rails and i got a rigid fork for it coming, going to be my bike if i need to go someplace it could be stolen bike.
    Fatbike, XC bike, Gravel Bike....

    When I signed up for the class, he had a list of options, I saw the picture of the basketbike and thought to myself "Wow, I can carry a lot of shit on that thing." It's an awesome bike. It rides well empty and fully loaded. Its easier to carry groceries and such on it than a rear rack because you don't have to have bike specific bags. I just take my hippie reusable grocery bags, and put them in the basket and I'm on my way.

    I've been toying with the idea of trying to make a few inspired by Flanigan's design to sell. I just need to get off my butt and start. Soma also sells a bike similar to the basketbike, but I've never ridden it.
