The Chainlink

Actually, I've got two I REALLY LOVE.

My 2012 Brompton M6L, I love so much I started a group here on CL (http://www.thechainlink.org/group/brompton-riders-chicago),

and I've also named it "Winston", as it oozes enough character to me.

My 2010 Surly Long Haul Trucker, taken on many short tours, almost every grocery run, and simply a comfy joy to ride.

I love my 2010 Specialized Vienna 01.  I have put over 5k miles on it since may of 2011.  I plan to put on many more miles in the days to come.

i ADORE my Jamis Quest. I commute and am training for a century and run errands that can be done with my backpack (I am kind of averse to a rack... and honestly I would rather just have someone drive me to get things like cat litter, or order it off Amazon.) 

Anyway here's a picture: It's freaking gorgeous to boot. I decided I wanted one when I saw one walking down  Milwaukee one day. It was love at first sight and even better once I test rode it. 

This is the Phaedrus. Frame and fork built by myself. Wheels built by myself using velo orange pbp rims with phil wood hubs. Other velo parts include headset, handlebars,  dia compe non arrow brake levers, tektro cantilever brakes, bell and saddle. Silver Shifters are from Rivendale. Drive train is 7 speed Campagnolo chorus. Frame material is chromo from Nova Cycles with Henry James lugs. Tires are 32mm Grand Boise from Compas Bicycles.

...LETS RIDE

Sweet bike you got there Bill!

super sweet.

Bill - beautiful bike. It is my dream to build my own frameset someday.

My bicycle soulmate is my Moots PsychloX. I race it for Cross season, I use it for all but the fastest of group rides, I have done gravel grinders, century's and gravel century's on it, and it is my daily commuter. Truly a do-everything bike.

all of the bags in this picture are handmade by me.

Sigh. Just looking at this picture makes me want to go for a ride.

Love my 2014 Trek 1.5....aptly named the Advance X1

Then there is my newest "beater" bike for winter and commuting in bad weather, Trek 3500, that I haven't gotten any pictures of.  Might on the way home though.

My bike... a custom made single speed bike by Iron Cycles back in 2010 when they were at Montrose.  I ride it to and from work.  It's super light and nice.

Elliot, we need to discuss a bag for my new Trek which will be a commuter/beater/winter bike once I figure out how I want things to sit.  I really like that frame bag you got there!

And how the picture almost seems like you are trying to highlight the bag because of the colors, haha!

The woolly mammoth of bikes,  Rivendell Hunqapillar.  The goanywhereunderanyconditionsfullyloaded for big boys bike.
