    One problem with Caltrain is the limited space for bikes during the rush hour, particularily the faster Baby Bullet. I decided to get two beaters, a Giant and a Ross "Rock Machine" from a relocating couple who did not ride much.

    After struggling along for a few days on these Pieces of S***, I decided to take my good commuter, a Surly 1x1, onto the train.

    It was night and day. I was passing cars, hammering along, and I felt like a real rider again.

    Does anyone else ride a POS regularly?

    Does burning man count as "regularly?":p

    Lake bed alkali is the sworn enemy of steel. Every year my bike gets more "character".
