I posted the bike a while ago, but here is an updated race ready shot before my Ironman last season. I have the old Scott 100k bars on it and a disc cover on the rear.

This is what I'm commuting on these days, a Gary Fisher Rig 29er single speed.

My reserved parking space at work. :D

I'm picking up another front wheel tomorrow from my LBS.
It should have matching rims and tyres by the weekend.

My first dream bike. A 1980 Schwinn Sting Competition. I finally got it back after about 20 years in storage. Needs a bit of work before it is ridable - all of it is still original, probably even the tubes (with more patch than tube). I'm looking forward to riding it again, I've certainly got plenty of good memories from it - and scars too! It's probably why I am a big chicken on the mtb these days. :D

Here's my main bike at the moment, in it's commuter/city bashing set up:
Image

When I do longer ride I stick on my Ultegra clipless pedals and seat mounted dual bottle cages. Longest ride so far on that bike was about 76 km or so.

This is my tandem, which I ride mostly just around the beach with my girlfriend in the summer:
Image

The green bike in this photo is my old bike, which I only recently parted with, and I greatly miss:
Image

I can't find any photos of my polo bike, which I recently sold to my brother. I *hope* to replace it with a fixed gear converted Charge Stove MTB.

Phil Wood track hubs laced to H+ Son Eero rims. Rather heavy all up, and because the rims are mirror polished if I don't polish them all the time they end up looking pretty scruffy. But they are triple walled, and bomb proof for hopping curbs while commuting and the occasional game of polo, while still being nice and smooth for the longer, faster rides.
