Ended up getting it on Tuesday (09/27/11). :thumb:

Took it for a 30KM ride today. Was awesome!

Looks nice, 30kms? Not alot of Giant selection where I am. Where in Canada you from? I'm from Vancouver.

Weather was nice yesterday but I was super tired from soccer the night before. Sun is out today so will try and get my wife to go out with me and do a quick 10kms.

BTW: Bike looks a little different now. Raised the seat 5mm and swapped a 10mm spacer above the stem so it is a little more aggressive. I needed to do this to shift some of my weight onto the bars because my bum was hurting way too much. That 15mm change made a huge difference.

Those handlebars are so hawt!

giantcfr1, i know this question been asked several times,where did you get those red dots on the rims? I want some on my black rims,they match very nicely.

AlphaDogg 10-02-11 03:01 PM

He took some reflective tape and a hole punch and that's that. He says he did it on a rainy day. I did it too.

See:

What he said is correct. It takes time though, hence, rainy say.

I don't have any arguments here, Thay all look much nicer than my garden variety department store brand mtn bike. Mine is actually and Oregon style hybrid where it rains more than 36in. annually.

X-LinkedRider 10-03-11 07:17 AM

You would think with all that rain, you would be used to a comfortable being wet by now.

giantcfr1 10-03-11 07:50 AM

Wouldn't you get soaking wet from the side? My guess the wind would blow straight through those things from the side. I'd imagine they should be much lower, but then you wouldn't be able to safely dismount your bike.
Anyway it must work or you wouldn't have bought two of them.

EDIT. By the way, is it a coincidence that these same pics feature on all web pages relating to this product. This page might be a better spot for you... http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdispl...-Your-Services

Thank for the suggestion, I lack the experience online to figure these things out.

Again thank you.
Dressing for the weather is still the norm but this is preferred over the constant facial drenching. These are my prototypes and like them or not I'm proud of them just from the standpoint that they work. Perhaps I was being a bit facetious about my hybrid, I should have posted in umbrella hybrid thred

My apologies, I really am that clue less.

Sorry my bad, I thought you were trying to advertise your wares, but I'm clearly wrong. Rainfish Umbrella Hybrid's look great. We have quite a few variations of that idea here in Japan.

Man, that's a nice bike. I didn't even know they had a 7.6. I thought they only went up to 7.5. Out of curiosity, what size frame is that? It looks small, kinda like something I'd fit on. I ride a 15.5".

It's a 17" - I tried the 15.5", but it just didn't feel right.

Nice looking bike. Though people on here generally prefer images where you can see the entire bike.

How about 7.7 and 7.9 ...:)

I think I actually need a size right between 15.5" and 17". I'm a little big on a 15.5" but a 17" is too big for me. I'd rather ride something I'm a little big on.

And I agree it is overwhelming.
I think anything higher than 7.5 is an overkill for a hybrid bike. IMHO.

gogreen09, please do not get me wrong - I like your bike very much.

Stunning looking bike.

Here is my Trek 7.9fx. Standard apart from a few upgrades at the contact points. I love this bike :)
