Did you drop a million yen towards the FAIYATORIKKUBOBU jet-powered bike pictured above? Maybe the low-riding TreeHugger-style Shocker Chopper is more your style. Or does your commuting machine hang in your closet like our founder Graham Hill's folding Strida bike. Prove it! This week we fell into Fall with our Readers' Most Interesting Farmers Market Finds. Next, we want to see photos of your crazy - cool commuter bike. View past Readers' Slideshows for ideas and click through for details on how to get your photos into the fold.
