My daily commuter, a Bianchi Sika which I got for a song.
I have to ride 1 mile is over a very muddy road, hence the extended mud guard :)
A mix of LX and XT components and all the screws I could change are stainless to survive the salty roads. I have changed the rear derailleur, cantis and brake levers since the pic and added Kool stop pads

And my homebrew winter front wheel, worked perfect in this winter's snow

Currently looking for a lighter frame, something out of Reynolds 853 maybe to switch over the components. This one weighs 30 lbs all dressed up :(

My F800 SL Cad 2 used and abused everyday, sleeps outside through all weather conditions
and already saw half europe fully packed on bike packing excursions :-).

Fixed gear ENO rear hub from white industries
Velocity Chukker rear rim.
Striped down Italia Flite I own for mmmmh 18 years now, was totally ripped and someone told me the seating is comfy on hard plastic, ... it's ok but give me some padding please :-)
Cossmax sup ceramic type 1 front wheel.
Magura HS33 front brake.
BLB cranks.
Surly front blade.
FSA bars and stem.
Niner YAWYD top cap, ... Chouffe beer cap on top :-)
Cannondale CODA grips from same period ( not very comfy to be honest )
Front fork made stiff.

Bye bye,

Daniel.

Hello Rich, no, it was not Kona :) This is a brand-new steel frame built a year ago by one slovak small company.
More info about built you can find here:

Hope you will like it.

Langster commuter. I swapped the track drops for some charge bull bars. This pic is with a friends disc wheel on as I was doing a tt next day. Usually just the standard Langster wheels on. 69" normally but been using 66" single speed some days too.
