Riding the CX bike to work

My most beloved bike: a 1991 RB-T. I took the knobbies off, put a pump and a basic tool kit on it. This bike has been hanging in my basement since the last CX race a couple months ago. That's a shame because it's fun to ride in this stripped down mode. That saddle is a killer though: my bum is used to the B-17, but it's nice to have a plastic jobber on there that I can forget about.

very inspirational. I can't remember the last time I went for a ride without fenders, rack, and lighting gear. might be time to break out the cross bike, since that probaby was the last time that happened...

Rory: it rules. I rode it around a bit today again. It's nice because the streets are mostly dry so I don't get schmucked up with crud.
