    I just returned my new saddle and put my old one back on . I liked the saddle, except that it was expensive and caused me pain.



    Old saddle:



    And I taped my barends yesterday for the first time. How did I do?

    Nice way to complement the color of the frame.
    If you use them a lot it makes sense to tape them indeed.

    Thank you. I use them 75% of the time, so I think it was a good idea. I was going to get black bar tape, but they didn't have it made by Bontrager (which was the cheapest), so I got blue.

    I've got the black gel bontrager bartape for my TT bike ... very comfy.
    I like your blue bartape better with your bike though.

    Here's where I'm at with the custom carbon hybrid. It needs a little more eye candy though... I'm thinking maybe red nipples, and a red spacer on the fork. Oh, and the word "hybrid" on the top tube in reflective red! I thought about doing a brown seat and cork ergon handgrips, but I'm not sure that would go well with the red accents.

    Looking good Mike!

    Claiming hybrid with that one is kinda pushing the line between hybrid and 29er and I'm all for pushing that line! You have a very nice collection of bikes. A dedicated rider of hybrids!

    G,day Mikey I,m sure I remember complimenting your build somewhere before and nice it is.
    There's loads of bling bits to look at on ebay like colored nuts bolts and jockey wheels thats where I got mine.

    Many here (in Kyoto) have been bagging me about my saddle on the Cannondale so I gave in and swapped it with my Orbea's.

    Both saddles feel equal to me and I guess the swap may look better. (sorry for the road bike image)

    giantcfr1,

    Both of your bikes look good. The hybrid needs red nipples though. So when are you going to rebuild your wheels?

    Isn't that seat-thing in front obstructing your legs from pedalling properly?

    Can't seem to go to sleep, so might as well post a couple of pics. This is my 21 speed 1994 Raleigh CT400, and I'm the original owner. Been a great bike so far, though I keep thinking about replacing it with something more modern like a Jamis Coda Comp/Elite or something in that quality range.

    That looks like fast bike Blacktails, it would be a shame to let go of that. Great condition too.

    It was a good saddle during winter but during summer (no long johns) it was starting to get uncomfortable.

    I hope replacing doesn't mean selling. You can't do that. Concider the regret factor.
