    Just rewrapped my barends with some Forté Grip Tec bar tape. It feels really nice.

    I had my front light on when I took this picture...

    This is her when she was brand new. Next month she will turn 1 year old.



    Giant Escape 2 Hybrid, but now with a few custom parts.

    Kool stop MTB brakes on the rear.

    MKS Lambda platform pedals. (My LBS discovered that I had cracked the originals in half, but luckily the rubber held until I replaced them.)

    NYC commuting killed 5 tubes in maybe 7 months? So....

    Michelin City ProTek rear tire.

    Vittoria Raddoneur double shielded kevlar front tire.

    ....and no flats since.

    5 tubes in 7 months? Damn! ^^
    I've yet to have my first flat in over 2,5 years.
    Are you sure you have quality kevlar layered tires and quality inner tubes?

    BridgeNotTunnel, How do you like the Escape 2? I picked up the '12 Escape 1 a month ago and love it. Thinking of changing the tires to something a little more aggressive, like 700x25 or 28.

    My 2012 Giant Escape 1. So far a kickstand and the RadBot 1000 tail-light are the only additions.

    A night shot of my hybrid.

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Hmmmm where have I seen that before...? Commuting forum?

    But anyway, beautiful bike you got there! Love the contrast of the leather (or is it shellac?) bar tape and the purple frame.

    Yeah, commuting. It is cork tape with shellac, to match the B17 saddle. Same spot, different angle:

    That Diamondback 3 is a great bike. I have the 2. 2011 is the last decent year for the 3. I just checked Diamondbacks web page and they've really cut costs and put less expensive components on the insight. The 1 even dropped the aero bladed front fork. These are great bikes, but while you can find a 1 at Dick's Sporting goods, you just can't find the 2 or 3 at many places to test ride. Good luck with it. It's a great looking bike.

    Did you get that at a LBS or via Online?

    Sure is a good looking bike. Hopefully the weather will clear and you can put some decent Ks on it.

    Turned on by all these Giants in here. Lol. This FCR is where I got my start back into cycling about 5 years ago. Of course, it was a flat bar hybrid with stock tires/wheels, pedals and gearing.
    This is what it looks like now. It is more of a commuter/Tourist but is still a hybrid and will never make the FULL roadie conversion probably.

    I was waiting for someone to compliment your beautiful looking bike and then I would agree with them. But nobody has commented, so I will. Read the 9th, 10th and 11th words in the first sentence of this post. There's your compliment.

    I agree with AlphaDogg about your bike and must say the photo is sensational too.

    !
    I like this bike a great deal... a 29r with a decent road setup and some serious off road capabilities.

    What is not to like ?

    Thanks guys. This bike has come a long way over the years. It would easily be much nicer if I swapped some of my aero wheels on there I'm more of a function over fashion kinda guy though.

    Thanks guys! I've been out of the bike game for awhile now but am definitely glad I'm getting back into it.

    I did quite a bit of research during the past few weeks as of what bike to get. Made the right choice in my opinion.

    This forum community helped me a lot. As I'd search around using google, many threads from this community would come up with discussions about things I was interested in learning about. I decided to sign up.
