Here's my commuter, with brand new bar tape. It's a 60cm Trek 510. I bought it in 1986 or 1987. I stripped it in the early 1990s, had cantilever bosses brazed on, set for 700c wheels instead of the 27" wheels it was first built for, and used it as my first cross bike. Then I had it set up as a city bike with a derailleur, and for the last few years it's been set up as a fixie commuter. I got it powder coated so I wouldn't have to spray it every couple of years. Currently set up with a lot of spare parts bin bits and pieces, but also with a Nitto Technomic stem, Brooks B-17 saddle, Ritchey cross tires, and a new rear rack. I ride it to work with an Ortlieb pannier on the back. 26 pounds of bike plus a computer and books with one gear and no coasting keeps me honest.

Thanks again.
