I like to tinker with bicycles and ride them around country back roads, often stopping to brew-up some coffee and lollygag for awhile. My collection of two wheeled transport is largely stuff I've cobbled together from older bikes to come up with some sort of concept. I can't leave anything "stock" and everything I ride has at least one bag attached to it. Most of my bikes are steel except for two that are constructed of an "alternative metal". I usually commute to work by bike (only about 9 miles round trip) until the roads get icy.
