    Risers with a positive rise stem way too wide, brakes, chain guard... Where's the top tube pad?

    Considering it comes with a ss freewheel, it seems a bit odd to harsh on Trek's decision to include brakes.

    you know, it's a pretty damn good bike for ss townie bikes, which are all that most ss people are turning their bikes into anyways.

    ive never heard someone complain about risers with a positive stem. i understand bashing on risers with a negative stem ("why not just use a regular stem with flat bars"), but risers with a positive stem seems perfectly logical to me.

    I don't hate it. If it gets me to work, and back with money left over for my race bike/race fees... I'm all for it.

    I'm sure with gas prices steadily going through the roof we'll be seeing a lot more hybrid/urban style bikes. I'll take that over SUVs any day of the week.

    I believe the correct term is "Womyn with a Y in place of the E"

    It looks funny when you write it down but this is what you're supposed to say when you say it out loud so people don't think you're spelling it the wrong way in your head.

    Although, thinking about it now, I don't know what the singular of womyn is... Womu.. Womi.. Wumai... Argh! Curse this caveman mind of mine! Why was I born into this sweaty disgusting body with it's under-developed Neanderthal pea-brain?! Why Goddess, why?!!!!

    I like to spell "man" or "men" with a y to completely negate the "womyn" thing.
