    Pretty snappy looking.

    BTW, wouldn't the white line in the picture above be the guide for your stem?

    Really nice tires there Alphadogg!
    28's slicks with 130 PSI will be about the fastest possible rolling tires ever

    And also be very, very uncomfortable. No need to go to 130. No need to go above 85 for the OP, and they'll roll very well while staying comfortable.

    Indeed ... but it's his choice ... anywhere between 80 for supercomfort and 130 for superlow resistance is possible
    Still, for doing roads and pavements these seem like nice tires for a hybrid.

    Bad Boy

    Here is my 2009 Bad Boy - purchased it for $300 on craiglist in perfect original conditiona and left frame and wheels - evrything else was changed
    Seatpost, Stem - Ritchey Pro
    Handlebar - Ritchey Comp
    Brakes Avid SD5,
    Brakelevers - Shimano LX
    Shifters - Shimano LX
    Rear Der. - 105
    Cassette - 105 (11-26)
    Front Der. - Deore
    Crankset - Deore (ext. BB)
    Seat - Selle Italia Flite

    Weight is about 23.8 and can be reduced by changing the wheels to the road ones.

    Actually if you want to see the Bad Boy - here it is.

    This picture was taken in one of the many tight turns, hence the upright position on the flatbar.
    Pitty they didn't take pictures on the long straight stretches too.
    This'll probably be the first and last TT on my hybrid, for obvious reasons ... but it was fun

    Good looking bike and the modifications sound like nice upgrades. What do you mean about changing the wheels to road wheels? Aren't they road wheels, or do you want a lighter set of rims? I ask that because I don't believe a road hub would fit the frame due to the geometry set up for discs. I think the frame would be too wide.

    I put some old toe clipped pedals on my bike today. When I say old, I mean 1979 old. They look pretty out of place on my bike. I will take a shot of the bike with them on it either later tonight or tomorrow.

    BTW, the car stolen?

    This Ferrari California was stolen a month ago or so in Newcastle (Aust). Oh dear!!
    Sorry no bike in the picture but the 17 year old who stole it may have had one.

    Yes, you got it right - these have the hubs with 6-bolt. Any regular road wheel fits just perfect - it is standard 100/130 frame size.
    I tried wheels (9spd cassette) from my wife road bike and it works perfect - not even any adjustment needed.

    how are you liking your new tires? im debating on getting 32 or 28 since im mostly on streets, leaning towards the 28. im currently working with 700x40

    Sorry either I'm wrong or we have different frames. I tried once just as a matter of interest and my road wheels weren't wide enough. Maybe I was dreaming.

    Here is the same bike with regular Mavic Ksyriums

    I'm just curious what type of frame you have (to avoid them in the future

    Oh I have a badboy disc, so best you avoid them.

    As I said, I might be wrong, but I thought it was wide so one could swap back and forth between 26" and 700mm.

    You got me puzzled .. I will try tu put my 26" MTB disk wheels in my bad boy... But I was thinking the spacing is standard (need an expert here).
    I use fork mount rack all the time and road bike carbon forks, mtb forks with V-brakes or disk are fit the same into the receiver.

    I like them alot. I would recommend going with the same tires I did, as they have a belt of protection under the center ridge of the tire for great flat protection. They were only $25 apiece. I plan on getting 3-4 cycling seasons (will come out to about 3000-4000 miles)out of these tires. They upped my average speed from 12mph to 15mph.

    The only thing I don't like about these narrow tires is that sharp rocks on the road always stick in the tires. It makes a thump sound after every rotation of the tire, so it gets pretty annoying. I end up having to stop and pick out the rock so that it stop making the sound. The rocks don't penetrate the tires, so it's all good.
