Nice oldskool bike there, blacktails.
Long time since I've seen that type of front braking system.

Dawes Mirage 06' and it rides smooth. I'm surprised I got it for 200 brand new. I've done mega millage when I was living in Hertfordshire just outside London. The bike has met its match being in Scotland.

It's only four months old. I know I've done more than three hundred miles in Hertfordshire. Scotland its done way more and I've only been here two months.

How is a 2006 only four months old? Haha. Nice ride. Nice pictures. Post more pictures of your bike with Scotland behind it.

Here's one more of mine. Pit stop in Lafayette Park.

Be honest, you just wanted to match the background stainless steel toilet and basin with the polished alloy frame Great pic either way.

My Trek 970 MTB had a quill stem with cable routing like that. It can be tedious to find a replacement quill stem that exactly matches both angle and length of the original.

It's hard to get good photo's of the bike, it always comes out looking washed out.



I think i'm about done fiddling with it for the time being. I need to get a saddlebag and i'd love to swap out the 700x35's for 700x28's but other than that i'm real happy with it. Just need to work on the motor now lol.

To me it looks like it was sold like that but with those brakes it might have come in a cyclocross model as well, looks very nice though.

its marketed as a "fitness bike" but I think it falls in the hybrid category.

It mostly has road components but it has v-brakes and of course the flat bar with mountain style shifters / brake levers. 700c x 28mm tires.

completely stock, just picked it up last night and couldn't even ride it due to thunderstorms. Hopefully the weather will allow a maiden voyage tonight.

Sorry, for some reason the first time I logged into see the pic, the first pic wasn't loading on my PC and I could only see the rear deraileur pic. That's why I was confused. Nice bike.

My first new bike in more than 20 years. Trek 7.1 FX, with 5-year-old-son-approved red helmet (he is the color coordinator). I've ridden maybe 50 or 60 miles on it and aside from numb hands I really like it. I'm going to stick some Ergon grips on it this afternoon and do some miles with them to see if that helps. I'm also looking at adding some bar ends, as well. Other than that, all I've added so far are lights for my frequent night rides and a cyclocomputer. It's fun to be riding again!

Did you already get the grips without bar ends? I would've suggested to just go for the ones that have bar ends built in. I have some of the regular Ergons and have decided that I should've gotten the others to begin with.
