My "new" Wheels

I mentioned earlier that I've been commuting by bicycle lately. Here's some photos on my ride.

The bike is my dad's old Schwinn Crosscut, a hybrid (700c wheels like a road racing bike, but flat mountain bike handlebars, for those of you who don't know). Since my commute is fairly long, about 20 miles each way, I outfitted it with 700x23c road slicks (ie, skinny, go-fast tires) and put a set of fenders on it to keep me reasonably muck free on soggy days. I'm also experimenting with the best combination of small bags to hold lights and tools. I can bungee a change of clothes or duffel bag to the rack. All in all, it works well.
And it's got a bell.
