    I used to have one of those, and believe it or not, that is the bike that got stolen -- they hacked right through a U-lock for it. Go figure.

    Since one of the original points of this thread was to be able to recognize others on the trail, here's my road bike/nice-enough weather commuter:

    Most distinctive thing is the "tailpipe" mounted pump which gets a few questions/comments.

    And what will probably become my main commuter:

    Still dialing in this one. Wouldn't mind if I could shave just 3-4 lbs off the weight.

    Hmmmmm.... Shave 3-4 pounds of weight. I've got a good set of clippers.

    Totally joking! Don't go changin', sir!

    Don't think I haven't thought about it! I'm supposed to be an usher at a wedding soon, so some trimming is inevitable.

    I'm not giving up cookies though.


    Mostly I just want to be able to lift/carry the bike easier.

    The workhorse for around all my commuting and errands requiring me to carry stuff, a Giant Yukon:

    The Dahon Matrix which handles the occasional quick dash here and there:

    (I probably should have folded it around a sign post for the picture.)

    I don't have pictures of:

    - The Surly Cross-Check, but it looks like a black Surly Cross-Check.

    - The Pashley PDQ, which is in storage (and I should probably sell).

    - The stable of beaters (4) garaged elsewhere in Arlington. This winter they'll be cannibalized into a single beater using a frame that's hanging above Yukon. (At home, not in this picture from work.)

    Correct.
    When I took that, I had just put the bars on to test. I was also still waiting for my Paul Comp. brake lever to show up. Now its running a single brake for the front wheel and some very poorly wrapped bar tape.

    Funny enough, I saw someone on the Custis a couple weeks back with a Chrome Schwinn - he was going the other way so the only thing I saw was the big red head badge and a glint of chrome in the setting sun. I was on the Surly, so I actually freaked out for a second and thought that someone had broken into my house and stolen my Schwinn off the wall.

    Here is my Surly Long Haul Trucker in full commuter mode, a svelte 50 lbs with the garment bag pannier.
