    Yours looks great.

    Now I've seen two in under half an hour.

    I decided this year I would do some winter riding. But I didn't especially want to take my nice bike out in the snow. And I didn't have money for a Mukluk. What to do?

    Ah I have an idea!!! If we start with this...


    plus

    and a few other odds and ends I had laying around...

    equals



    I'm also building up some snowcats that I'll put my studded snows on. Don't beat me up too bad, that's all I could afford.

    It's a little heavy, but for slushing around in the snow and the salt, I think it'll be fine!

    29'ers are cool, how much was the Mongoose? Did you already have the Specialized frame?

    Thanks. I love what you did with your bar ends. i may have to get something similar for mine, the stock bar ends aren't very comfortable to hold.

    I just put the original Specialized grips over my bar ends for a much better feel instead of taping

    They are just standard L-bend barends. I got mine for $13 at the local Performance bike shop.

    Got new wheels for the touring/commuter bike which started out as a flatbar hybrid, but is now definitely more of a touring/commuter/cyclocross type of bike.
    New Wheels which arrived today. (Williams Fuzion M1s)

    Thanks. I agree, they really made the bike look complete. It's funny to think of all of the changes it went through..

    I bought it on 07 looking stock of course.. It's an 06 (leftover)
    In 07 it looked like this

    08/09 It looked like this
    (My first real tour)

    And now it looks like this.

    Congratulations on a fine looking converted and upgraded FCR-3. What are you running for a rear cassette and derailleur. I've got a 2009 FCR-3 that after a couple of years of riding stock am just beginning to convert for light trail riding.

    I use a 12-28 8 spd Sora Cassette. Or you can use the SRAM PG850 (Basically the same thing) Setup with Sora Front AND Rear derailleurs. The gears in the back mixed with with 30/42/52 Crank really give it a Huge range of gears.

    You`ve been inactive on the hybrid forum for a long time. Welcome back on, and I look forward to more of your reviews.

    Hey Steve I'm not sure what SBS is doing this year, in adelaide the telecast is on channel 9 and starts tonight with a prolog around the city and the official start is tuesday.
    I was planning to do the Ride Like Crazy race for the public today as well as the Bupa challenge tour but my back has had a bad time in the last couple months so my fitness is not up to it.
    Its quite amazing this time of year everywhere I go the roads are packed with pro riders and racer wanabe's.

    Channel 9????? Oh god help cycling. I can only imagine channel 9`s effort. When the pros are around it`s great. Jan 1 the Gold Coast has a race each year and Robbie McEwan is a member of our club, so he is able to convince many pros already in Oz from Europe to join in. Great stuff.
