Lovely bikes lovely, but everyday bikes interesting too. I won't post first, but I'm taking pictures right now.  1 I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!

Brian Rourke, 1983. 
Just had some new wheels so given a it a thorough clean and taken a photo for the scrapbook. Also swapped the rear mech from a PAT 74 to PAT 84. Got to move with the times, haven't you. 
Largely used for commuting. Hence the need for new wheels. And use of a good saddle. 
Occasional outings into The Peaks.

New bike day!

I just used my Brompton to pick up this Trek District 4 equipped. I was going to build something like this myself, but this ticked nearly all the boxes as built.

Dynamo powered lighting
Full mudguards
Belt drive
Internal hub (8 speed Alfine)

The only change I plan to make soon is maybe cut down the bars. As supplied they are over 68 cm, which just seems ludicrously wide for a city bike.

My personal bicycle realized, as I do for my customers, entirely handmade.

This is my Super Light Steel Frame Bicycle completely handmade by Forgione Telai

Super Light 6.4kg Racing Bike: Customized frame in Columbus steel with the Silver Fillet Brazed technique and components to go even under the lower limit weight suitable for competitions
 

The limit weight to participate in the races, what you imagined could only be approached with a carbon frame, the fateful 6.8 kg, you can have them with a complete bike with a steel frame!

You can also have a bike that weighs less than 6.8kg but made with a Forgione steel frame!

Project "Superlight steel" complete bike with customized frame and lightening details in Columbus Spirit steel joining method: Silver Fillet Brazed.

My daily commute bike (tbf it is my only bike) - a Voodoo Limba.

23km a day. Up to 4,700km since new.
Put anti-puncture tyres on it, mud guards and clipless pedals.

It's been great for my commute - I was only supposed to cycle a few days a week, but I've been doing five days a week for a year and a half now. Never want to go back to driving!

Just picked up this little beauty. A little delayed waiting for the various accessories (delayed by the flooding in Italy apparently).

Garage bike? The sort of seller your mother warned you about? This is the cockpit of a Barracuda Team Replica, donated to the Repair Cafe. 700x23s with schrader valves, 7x3 gears and, er these twist grip shifters.  The stem seems stuck, I've had the bolt right out, given it a bash or two.

Got this Decathlon folding bike cheap on eBay. This is now my 5th bike, and probably my last one for a while.

Planning to use it for situations where I want to drive somewhere then cycle the last few miles - going to a music festival later this year and the park and ride bus is about £30 per day, but there's free parking 3 miles away from the venue.

£499.00 from millets. I just had a small space in my bike shed to fit it in. Too cheap to leave on the shelf 🤣

Try again. Nope, it's one of those days when Road cc is going to invert your image even if you invert it yourself.

Ok, let's screen shot the original. I don't know any Italian, but this (presumed Columbus) bike is one that talks to me more than any of my Reynolds steelies. "C'mon, let's go!", it seems to say - it is what you pay your money for.

If that's a quill, put a bolt in and give it a few taps with a suitable persuader.

I have this frame, although a different spec / manufacturer. Is the front brake fully internal on that fork? Would you ever look to go fully integrated with the rear as well?

no it isn't fully integrated.

I brought the framset only and got a local mechanic to swap all the stuff over from my broken bike. He advised against full integration as he says it puts hours of labour onto even simple jobs.

im pretty happy with how it looks anyway - don't want to look to slick as people will expect me to go fast !

Great bike though - best carbon bike Ive owned...by some distance.

I won this bike in a raffle from a local beer distributor just over six years ago. It's a branded version for Chicago's Goose Island Brewery, for their 312 Urban Wheat Ale. It may look like aluminium with its oval down tube, but it's a steel frame, seat post, and bar.

It is a flip-flop single speed that I run on the non-fixed side. I geared it down a little so I can climb all the local hills, and added a rear brake, toe clips, and straps. The bottle cage and pump are on a TwoFish Quick Cage Adapter, as this frame has not a single braze-on. It's a lot of fun and I've put just over 1000 4500 miles on it. It weighs just under 30 lb. Rear bag is a Sackville.

The bike is a custom version of this $300-$400 (£225-£300) mail-order bike.

Looks like they've done a lot of other corporate branding, too. Anyone fancy an AUDI? You're automatically exempt from signalling your turns when you ride it, and other cyclists have to move out of your way.
