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?
    That is true. My friend recommended this bike to me. He is a cycle nut and has some very expensive bikes, even a Kestrel, but commutes on a 2010 Insight 3. I was actually surprised when I saw the 2012 specs and noticed that it lost the carbon fork and deore comps. Mine was bought through Amazon/Nashbar. Originally ordered it through nashbar.com but because I am Canadian using a US mailing address, they cancelled my order. However, I found it on Amazon for the same price (sold by Nashbar) and they shipped without an issue, go figure. I checked last week for a friend and they were only down to a handful of Insight 3 so i am sure they are sold by now. Definately don't regret this decision. BTW price was $449. Frame is by Kinesis and I am pretty confident the fork is too. If I hadn't found this deal I would have dropped $1350 on a Kona PHD. =D

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.
