My 7300 after a hose down coming back from a rather muddy day on the C&O. In two more weeks it will hopefully take me the full 184 miles. Just dropped it off today for a major tune-up and replacement the original (~ 7 yrs old) dry-rotting tires.

Miscellaneous accessorizing but components are still all stock.

My Diamondback Edgewood. The first bike I bought when I started to bicycle again.



My Alpine Guadalupe. A good bike but for some reason I just ride this bike in the cold weather.



My Schwinn LeTour. I class this as one of my hybrid/commuters. She was always really too heavy for a roadbike and I hated the stock dropbars so I put some lo risers on her. She's plenty fast as a commuter.

Here's my 2009 Kona Dew FS:





It's fast and I can ride it on trails and I absolutely love the hydraulic disk brakes. Of all the bikes I've owned in my life, this one without a doubt, is my favourite (so far).

Its not hard to be blinded..lol

Here is my hubby's crosstrail


Here is my Globe


We haven't really done much to them yet..I did replace the stock saddle on mine, and we both added water cages.

Eventually hubby's will get fenders and a rear rack and I will get a front basket when it comes in and maybe some new grips and pedals.

Cool bikes. But it looks like his inner leg rubs on the cable and u-lock.

High praise indeed. I've never riden a bike with hydraulic brakes.

Thanks I've had my bike since June and now I'm shopping around for a 2nd bike (not that we have the room)

I love our bookcase, which we call the Beast because its so freaking heavy..lol We've also added more books since that was taken in June as I'm a book fanatic. Bought this one for 90$ used but in excellent condition. 2nd best deal after my bike

Jamis Coda Elite on a nice spring day. There's a rack on the back now, but no decent recent pics.



Check out how I did the bar ends. Gives some very comfortable options for hand positions.

Terriman - that actually looks like a great idea - putting the bar ends in the middle like you did.

That bar end placement reminds me of those curved bar add ons the pros used for a short period in the '90's? that went the way off the scott drop-in bars.

I went looking for a pic or link, but I couldn't think of who made them or what they were called.

btw: If I was going to do something like that, I'd put the bar ends (maybe curved) inside the brifters.

I don't know if a Navigator is really a Hybrid, But I bought it last year for casual riding, but instead turned it into a passion, and lost 50lbs. I don't have the money right now, but I'd love to get a Trek 7.5FX (the 2010 in black), I'm hoping for next year. I would still keep the Navigator for trails, and utility rides. I did switch the tires to the 1.5" Bontrager inverts at the beginning of this season.

The add on things that I'm thinking of clamped on like newer aero bars that curved into each other in an oval shape.

^Sweet bike.^ Don't forget to remove the sticker(s). That kickstand may slow you down.

thanks gang. yeah man - i noticed - this bike came with sooo many warning stickers -on the brakes, on the brake levers, ont he frame, on the carbon fork, and im serious - a couple of other places. i duno y..... it's a bike not a transformer!@$

as for the kickstand, it's actually too long. my bike can rest on it but i think wind would easily knock it over. i gotta get another one, a shorter one. LMAO - i think it will slow me down.
