I think you should keep the warning stickers on it, makes it look more badass :D

Panthers007 08-26-09 10:09 PM

Oh my! Look what the cat dragged in! :eek:

I second keeping the Caution! and Danger! in place. Or make up a worse set to paste over them. If it has a MADE IN CHINA on the head-tube (as mine did), feel free to peel that off. :D

Oh yeah - you can change your signature now.

sh00k 08-27-09 12:07 PM

It has a made in taiwan sticker on it! seriously, right below the trek logo on the front of the bike. i think i removed it last nite - i dont remember.

ROFLMAO Luditte!!! tonite im going to wrap the bike in caution tape and have two alternating/blinking yellow lights on it. how's that for dangerous/badass?

and im putting a 'keep back - 500 feet' sign on the rear of the bike.

^_^

shOOK, you don't need to get a different kickstand, just cut off a little at a time from your kickstand, till it is the right length. make sure to make the cut parallel to the original though, so it actually makes good contact with the ground!

Nice bike, btw. Although, in my mind, that is a flat handled road bike, but maybe you just haven't had time to hybridize it yet :D

sh00k 08-27-09 12:19 PM

LOL - i dont even have the tools to cut it... i may take my bike to a friends house to see what he can do......

as for the flat handled road bike - bingo - that's exactly what i wanted. i dont commute with it, nor do i shop with it, etc, so the way you see it is the way i'm keeping it - with the exception of a bike computer and a small pouch for my cellphone/keys. it's such a blast to go really fast and maintain a great view of whats in front of and around you.

as you see it, it's as hybridized as it's gonna get :-D

sh00k 08-27-09 12:20 PM

ps - my bike is like a honda -

the more stickers that are on it, the faster it'll go! :roflmao2::lol::roflmao2::lol::roflmao2::lol::twitchy::notamused:

Not to upstage sh00K on his momentous day for bringing home the 7.7FX. Finally got motivated to show my new '09 TREK 7.6FX with new grips (Ergon GC3's), new saddle (Terry Liberator Y GEL) and a new CATEYE V2C. I wanted a rear mount wireless computer with cadence for eventually running on a trainer when the snow gets here. Sorry for some blurry pics. I am a lousy photographer.

This was my reading from last ride. I cue off maintaining a good cadence. Here the avg was 84 RPM. Total dist 23 miles avg speed 13.9. Nothing to brag about but with 3 weeks of riding under my belt, it felt pretty comfortable.

These have made a big difference for hand comfort.

This has helped as well along with some decent bike shorts.

This damper and the blue paint was the main reason I decided to move up to a 7.6. I wanted skinnier tires, higher pressure rating and I think this equalizes those out to give a smooth ride. I will say after riding my wife's 7.5 FX with the wider, lower pressure tires, the rides are about equal.

I'm intrigued by those new Ergon grips. Too bad they cost a fortune - but probably worth it. I have the ones with the shorter 'horns' and they are great as well. Very nice machine you got there!

I have a pair of these on order from my LBS - I was wondering if a bar-end mirror can be mounted through them, or if I have to find something else?

Panthers007 08-27-09 08:19 PM

You will likely need to find something else. I have a mirror attached to my helmet, which works quite well. You might consider that as an option. Mine is made by Cycle Aware:

These have been re-designed from the old one's that were rather flimsy according to some. They stay put and can easily be moved out of the way when you don't need it.

sh00k 08-27-09 08:56 PM

morgan - LOL @ 'not to upstage sh00k' -- dude your ride is really slick. i dig the bar ends... i may pickup a set of those. really clean looking 7.6!

Luddite 08-27-09 09:30 PM

Morgan, what sort of a camera do you shoot with? In some of the shots your cam is focusing on the background etc. If it's a DSLR you can monkey with the focus, dynamic, closest subject etc. I still think I'm a crappy photographer, too, but you can get better with practice.

ETA: Beautiful steed, btw

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

For anyone that cares, I may have been wrong in the Cinelli Spinaci no longer being made. I found a link to an online sales and to Cinelli history.

Bikes fall over less often when they don't have a kickstand. Just saying.

It's pretty much stock, aside from the Ergon grips and the saddle and seatpost which replaced the stolen Bontrager pieces. I'd like to upgrade the front brake to an Avid BB7 as I'm not terribly impressed with the BB5 disc brakes that are currently on there. I should get some full fenders one of these days.

The UAB (Urban Assault Bike)
 
3 Attachment(s)
This is my Cannondale H300 hybrid, dubbed "The UAB" for "Urban Assault Bike". My friends in D.C. gave it that name cuz everything but the rims were matte black. It's changed over it's 13 year life but it's still mostly black and a sweet ride. Fast and lightweight, gears change quietly and almost seemlessly. Who knew the Shimano Alivio groupo would last so long?? The bike is all original except for the handlebar stem (Girvin Flexsystem), the generic bar-ends and the tires, which were just replaced today! Unless the frame breaks I plan on keeping this as my daily ride for the rest of my life. Long may I live!

trobinson017 08-28-09 03:13 PM

Oh yeah, the original pedals where immediately replaced with SPD type clipless.

KungPaoSchwinn 08-28-09 03:29 PM

Hey Madcapsule, nice bike, may i ask how did it classified as a hybrid? Are those 26'' tires?

- Thanks !

I have a Fuji E510 Fine Pix camera. It's not a DSLR. I think I need practice and a tripod. I did lay the camera on a chair arm to take some of the overall bike shots. I see what you mean about the different objects being in and out of focus within the same picture.

240GL: What kind of bike do you have?
 
240GL, you're bike looks pretty kewl. I'm interested in knowing what it is and, particularly, what kind
of handlebar grips those are. Any other particulars you'd care to share would be appreciated as well.

Pedal on!!

Thanks. Yes, the wheels are 26" with 2.2" wide Bontrager Hank slicks. It's listed on the Fisher site under their Urban bikes line.

I want to see the rest of the bike.
