How about a catch all for posting the commuter bikes.

Some particulars:
Son28 centerlock front hub
Luxos U headlight
Toplight Brake rear
Tubus Fly rack

I do my winter training / commuting on a really heavy Jamis Nova Sport. Bike weighs close to 14kg / 30 pounds as pictured!
Shimano Claris and SKS Mudguards. Bought the bike new from Evanscycles for €450 when it was on 50% sale! If someone steals it I won't cry myself to sleep :)

Except for being a bit heavy and for the Claris group being a huge step down from Shimano DI2 that I have on my Canyon Aeroad. I can't really fault it. Wait, I can. The brakes are Tektro Lyra and they're absolutely useless.
I saw that SRAM Apex 1x is coming out and it has hydraulic brakes so I might switch to that groupset in the future. Maybe I'll swap the bike out for something lighter while I'm at it...

Bike commutes well and for training I just put on my Powertap P1 pedals and check wattage/heart rate. Don't care about avarage speed as long as my numbers are right during training.

No problems at all with winter up here in Sweden as long as you keep the salt away from the drivetrain.

bm0p said I should have tossed the xr270s but I built them up because $15 rims have a luxury all their own. :mrgreen:

CAAD 9 cx
5800 silver
Dati DA-R1 hubs/aerolite/XR270/GP4000 28mm. Butyl tubes with Bontrager sealant.
Tektro 926AL brakes
QD seatpost for easier transport.
Blinker so cars can see me.

Here is my Stevens Cyclocross and Thule Chariot Cougar 2 which I use to take my children to daycare. For really winterish/crappy weather I've got also trusty Sunn Vertik2 steel hardtail MTB in my garage.

just finished a bit of a for now type commuter build with a free frame/fork from local classifieds while I weld myself a nice lightweight aluminum commuter frame.
Image

Trying to decide what fork to use on the new aluminum frame that's nice and light weight with disc provisions and fender eyelets.

Awesome! My son is only 7 months old, but I eagerly look forward to taking him around and to daycare and then school via bicycle!

As it is now, I'm forced to drive, which I haven't done with any regularity since 2002!

This is a great picture of a good set up. How did you attach the lowrider rack? Am I right in saying that the fork doesn't have mounts?

Built back in 2009 and since ridden about 25,000 miles, though not so many lately as I work from home now. No problems towing a Burley trailer and my son with his bike to the local parks with this.

Some specs:
Pedal Force CX1 frame, Windwood full carbon disc fork
IRD Cadence rims, DT Swiss Revolution Font and NDS spokes, Comp DS, 32F/R, alloy nipples, American Classic hubs, ~1450 grams total
Old Man Mountain Rack, ~400 grams total
Ultegra 6503 shifters and derailleurs
Ritchey WCS handlebars, stem, and seatpost
Crank was replaced with Stronglight Pulsion until the inserts for the granny ring came loose. Going to put my Fission triple on it eventually
Headlight is now a L&M Seca 800 with custom 10400 mah carbon fiber battery pack, shown with my old L&M HID
Weight as pictured: 10.9 kg/24 lbs.

So the third PlanetX/On-one already!
Image
PlanetX London road in Zesty Lime, was a reframe for my old and very tired Carrera Gryphon, shown here by the side of my route to work.
Weight is around 8.8Kg without rack/pannier and guards, as those, including pannier contents, add about another 3.5Kg its not really worth aggressively chasing further weight savings unless a part is being changed anyway.
PX LR frameset (alloy frame and carbon forks), Selcof carbon seatpost with Bontrager Inform RXL saddle, Bikehut forged CNC stem and BBB Fibretop bars with Pork rind foam grips (now 6 years old).
Wheelset is from a Pinnacle Hybrid, offset drilled Alex rim and unbranded cup and cone hubs but not too bad at sub 2Kg for the pair.
Alligator discs on KCNC centrelock adaptors slowed by Clarks M2 brakes.
Conti Ultrasport II in 700x28c which are a decent compromise between weight and drag and resistance to deflations.
Sram X0 grip shifter (no delicate levers to get damaged) and X9 short cage rear mech with an Ultegra 12-28 cassette.
GXP crankset spinning in Shimano XT BB (with adaptor) with a narrow wide 44t ring.

Contemplating a change of bar (prefer more backsweep than this has) and stem (-17 to drop the bars a bit more).

@jeroenfl

What size are your rotors? 140mm? If not, did you need adapters for them?
