Umm, nobody ever died from not wearing a silly plastic old-lady showercap over their helmet. Maybe they got a little cold and wet from being too cool for school (harrumph), but....

Default Routes and Whatnot

I ride my bareknuckle (aka Antigonus) from sellwood to NE Portland and back for my commute. And then most everywhere else. And it is very fast.

That being said, I try to ride the single-speed conversion GT Outpost mtb (aka Xtreme Orange Fiesta Bike) (freewheel) any chance I get. It is SO much fun!

Sorry for the silly shower cap comment; trying to lighten the mood. They *do* kinda look like shower caps, tho, am I right? Ummmm....

Back to bikes and who rides what where: so none of you passes by my office on NE Mason? I was gonna offer a commuter break!

Another GF commuter - 2004 Wahoo, blue frame, covered with lots of microcosm stickers. Added MB fenders, rack on the back, rear panniers (most of the time), changed out the saddle, and I've usually got more gear on the handlebars than I have room for. (sometimes including a digital camera on a $2 makeshift mount)

I ride my Jamis Aurora with full fenders and Brooks B17, or The Beast, an old beat-up hardtail MB with cut-down handlebars and "Auto-Free Prospect Park" and "Sport Utility Vehicle" stickers on it. I'm pulling a Burley D'Lite trailer with my 3 y.o. in it about half the time. Right now, I'm just commuting from my apartment to daycare to the Millikan Way MAX in Beaverton. If you ride a lot out my way, you've probably passed me.
