My commuter (2001 VOTEC F7 CC) with various tire configurations...

With Schwalbe Black Shark Light 1.9, witch i use only for mountainbiking because of the vibration on the road.
Image

Image

With Specialized 1.0 tires. This doesn't cycle as well as "normal" tires, they are to narrow i think. I don't use them very much, it looks odd... It's a waste of money, they were expensive. About 40 euro's a piece...
Image

Image

And, with Schwalbe Hurricane 2.0 witch i use most of the time. In this case, i can cut of some of the route trough the woods.

Image

Any way, i haven't found the perfect semi slick yet...

Here is my (I think) 95 Zaskar which is my bike for snow days and as a back-up for when my main ride craps out.

My main ride is a Kona Dew FS that I'm in the process of converting to a CX / ATB fusion. Here is it on the bike stand last night. As interest, time and $ allow I may switch it to a drop bar with barcons and cane creek long pull brake levers. :D

8) Here she is, my main work bike at the moment. bought the frame with ideas of a powdercoat but then ended up with a temporary rattle can finish, which turned out better than anticipated so will be ok for the time being.
xt shifters, avid 1.9 levers. lx mechs, suntour cranks. all from my bits box, and a couple of wheels also from my stash.
works well, so I can go off on the long way home if I feel it.

Here is my work horse. It has an issue with the gears at the moment which I need to sort.

The Voodoo will soon be sharing the load with this retro Raleigh.

And I use my favourite toy on a Tuesday.

:evil: heathens...heathens. Goes to show there are some real muppets on stw. I bet a lot of people on stw think an original on one is 'retro' and a Kona Jake the snake a decent road bike.


What is stw. it sounds like my kind of site

thanks andy

Here's my 98 Merlin XLM I bought new. I'm retired now so this is my errand running bike and also my cold weather bike. It's very comfortable and fast. It's been built up all sorts of ways over the years but I very much enjoy it like this at present.
