    What do you ride?

    I have a Gary Fisher mountain bike, but am in pursuit of a Jamis Coda Elite....I was torn between a cyclocross, road or hybrid....I think I'm making the right choice!!

    The Coda Elite is a great all-around bike. I'm very happy with a cyclocross bike, the Soma DoubleCross;

    2014 Trek DS.1: "Viaggiatore" A do-it-all bike that is waiting in Italy
    2012 Pedal Force CG2: "Secolo Bicicletta" the modern carbon fiber road bike
    2012 Pedal Force CX2: "Carbone CX" the carbon fiber CX bike
    2010 Origin 8 CX 700: "Servizio Grave" Monstercross/29er bike
    1997 Simoncini Special Cyclocross: "Little Simon" lugged Columbus steel CX bike
    1987 Serotta Nova Special X: "Azzurri" The retro Columbus SPX steel road bike
    1971ish Peugeot PX10: "Fancy Lugs"

    Genesis Vapour - Currently has slicks on and I've changed the stock brakes to Tektro CR520s. It's an excellent bike but by the time I had it set up as a tourer/commuter I stopped using it for off-road as much and now it's only ever used on the road. I'd have probably been better off buying a touring bike as I'm more interested in long distance riding. My current plan is to convert the MTB to a single speed next year, convert the small vintage road bike to a fixed wheel and buy a touring bike next year and shift the commuter bike to 'cross duty.

    Edit: Add anti hybrid rant.
    Don't bother with a hybrid, they're inadequate in every way possible. If you need proof look at the amount of people asking questions about putting road bars on their hybrid.

    This is my hunk of junk, a 1980 something Schwinn Le Tour.


    It nearly killed me the other day when its 25+ year old brake lever gave out when I was on the hoods, Im out of commission until the new Shimanos I bought show up. Then new black tape, cable housing and cable are in order

    I ride a Sedona DX and recently picked up a Cypress, so the Sedona will likely be going in the spring. I also have a Specialized Crossroad Cruz I picked up, but it is not going to work for what I intended so it will be going away also. I need to ride more and lose more weight before I can tell if I will want/need to add a drop bar to the stable. I can already tell there are many more bikes in my future.

    I ride my two Jamis (see signature) bikes everyday that I can. I ride to work 5 - 7 days a week on my comfort style Jamis and then I ride my other Jamis for my workouts or to go longer distances. I only bought the comfort bike to ride with my wife, but it is easy enough to ride the really short distance to the YMCA everyday to work.

    When I got back into cycling about may or june, I was on my old (90 or 91) mongoose mountain bike, with out suspension. I commuted on it a few times and decided I must have a road bike for that. After much thought and research, I was leaning twords a steel frame touring bike. I ended up with a Novara Randonee and I have only ridden the poor mountain bike two or three times since. I am very happy with my choice. It's smooth, fast ( well, much faster than a mountain bike) and well built. I'll be riding it for years.

    Lemond and Deep V's!..It was an all aluminum Tourmalet but Trek replaced the frame with a carbon fiber/aluminum mix frame when the original snapped on me. So now it's a Chambery!...I built the rear V with a 9 speed Ultegra hub and the front V with a 105 hub. Crank was recently replaced with an Ultegra. Only thing 105 now is the shifters and front derailleur.

    I have a 2002 Lemond Zurich - the only thing original is the frame. Had some nice wheels built last year. This is my primary road bike. I also have a Leader as a commuter bike.

    I have 2 mountain bikes, a 2006 Santa Cruz Superlight and a 2002 Spec. Stumpjumper M4 hardtail. Both have had some significant upgrades.

    Thank goodness I like all my bikes because it doesn't seem like anytime soon I will have the money to replace them!

    I ride a Trice QNT, recumbent trike.

    I also have a not-too-expensive (but seems to be decent quality) DF bike that my husband bought for me when I first moved to Sweden. Unfortunately, after only 3 rides I discovered that my back won't take a DF. I don't even remember the brand name of it.

    I have an 06' Blue RC4 road bike, which is what I primarily ride. My beater is currently a non functioning Kona Lava Dome (rigid mountain bike) bought back in the early 90's. If/ when I get around to it, I'll be transforming it into a commuter bike.

    I like my hybrid. I like the stock handlebars on my hybrid. I will not be putting road bars on my hybrid.

    Oh, and that's "number of people," not "amount of people"
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    I can never remember this one, why is it number of people rather than amount? Is it similar to the less than or fewer rule?

    Why do you like your hybrid? Is there something appealing about the lack of hand positions, the way it allows you to see how much air you can stop with your body or the fact that it's a proud statement that you no longer worry about fashion?

    I have three - a touring bike I have set up with 32mm wide tires with some tread that I use to ride the dirt road to work and explore skidoo trails and logging roads; a custom ti hartail mountain bike I use for the occasional singletrack ride or MTb race; and my old custom steel road bike that I love more than any other material posession but I don't get much time to ride.

    My touring bike is my current favourite to ride because I can go anywhere and carry anything whenever I want.
