Santa Cruz Blur XC with Rohloff
About 10 - 14km each way depnding on which route I take, mostly off road, along the riverbank, through the nature reserve and back along the canal.
I'm on a shift rota, so two weeks out of three I ride either to or from work in the middle of the night.
Nice one, my new commute is all road and cycle lane, only ridden her twice but will be back on her next week as soon as this chest infection lifts!
Oh.... Commuters you say?
Sorry about the dark image ~ does about 18 miles a day on road and country lanes...
Now with XTR v's
Airnimal Joey Elite, rohloff, maguras and the rest is all pretty stock. 20-60 miles a day on Sussex/Kent lanes - it's done almost 3500 miles in less than a year on 2 oil changes, 1 new (used) headset and a bottom bracket...
here's mine although i dont commute im riding to school "wink wink" next wendnesday to watch sportsday for 6 hours i think not 6 hours of hebden bridges hills morelike
woffel i take my bad comment's back about that bike it actuelly looks quite nice
Usually one of these 3 depending on mood, weather conditions and which one is working at the time. 60 mile round trip.
all three look nice
Thingybike for road, cyclepath, bridalway and woods with slick tyres. 14 mile round trip
Woffle, I think Joey is a good name for that bike :belm:
What's the middle one Barnes?
Not your typical 'commute' bike but i also use it as a proper mtb so it does perfectly.
Weighs about...er,,, 12 tonnes. Gets me fit though and its comfortable.
Oh and it glows in the dark. Which i guess is a good enough reason for using it to commute on!
my fixie get about bike... often strays offroad.
Things of possible interest:
rasta bar tape
ahead bottle opener
dia compe limited ed wheels
old skool power grip toe straps
ride real fine
In touring mode (has rack on permanently, as it so happens):
Work from home days;
Seat 62K by preference, which is upstairs and much quieter. I like the extra space the exit gives you and the window seats have much better luggage stowage in the windowsill boxes. The only problem is, the port is usually a little cold.
