    Latest iteration:





    Changes are a new saddle (Selle Italia Filante) and the second bottle cage. Also lowered the stem 5mm.

    Thanks!

    By the way, how's the Romin 130 been working out for you?

    No problem what-so-ever. I'm lucky that it seems to fit perfect, but being white, my new jeans left blue denim stripes on it. I cleaned it though with a mild detergent. BTW, I got the Romin off a guy very cheap $5, because he used it and he said it gave him hip problems. My guess is he needed the next size up.

    I have been wanting to post a picture of the cockpit on my 7.2 FX, which I am very happy with in its current state. I've got Nashbar trekking bars, SRAM Attack grip shifters, and Deore brake levers. I wrapped the bars with an old tube under the tape for padding. I made my own phone mount using a belt holster, a reflector mount, and Gorilla Glue.

    I actually went in looking at the Rapid 2 but couldn't justify the extra cost. I grabbed the Escape 0, plus new pedals, seat, bar ends and computer for about $150 less then the Rapid 2 I went in looking at. Took out the Escape and was completely satisfied with the ride, handling and all around feel. I also like the slightly thread tires which come in handy around where I live. Took it on a 20 mile shake down / adjustment run the day it came home and am Very happy with my purchase

    2nded and 3rded all comments on the escapes, it's what I test rode before buying my Seek. The only reason I got a Seek is for the discs. I just wish they had some intermediate models rather than just a 3 and a 0.

    Very nice.. Are those the podium insulated bottles? How do you like them? I have the non insulated 24oz ones and love them, I was hesitant to try the insulated b/c they look a lot longer to me.

    I ride to forget the pain in my life. I've had my heart broken by three different girls in my life. ALL of them were from Old Bridge, NJ. I thought I'd be safe from life's reminders on this board. Ugh! It's not your fault, it's just my cross to bear.


    I think I should go ride

    Maybe it's something in the water, luckily I married someone who wasn't from Old Bridge lol.. Riding is always great to clear the head, as long as you don't get to close to old Bridge that is

    I traded my X for a '68 Mustang. Cheaper and better service.

    Great bottles. They clear the top tube and stay put just fine.

    Hi all,

    I just bought a Hybrid bike after 15 years not riding.

    It's a 2012 Scott Sub 40. Only accessories so far: tail light, passcode lock, trip computer.

    As I have a rather large head, couldn't find a helmet that fits in LBS. Ordered an XL one from Amazon.

    Rode it about 40 miles since purchasing it on Saturday. I wanted to ride it further but my ass hurts due to frickin tough saddle

    Edit: Can you all see the photo?

    Yep I can see it. Sorry to hear about your ass, I hope it feels better soon.
    Try adjusting the angle a little and ensure your saddle bones are on the correct spot on the saddle. Remember, it's a saddle not a seat. With a saddle, your legs assist with weight distribution. If you need a seat, maybe you should go back to where you purchased the bike, and they'll usually swap for a "comfort seat" at no extra cost. (unless you go with a Brooks B66 etc, then you'll have to pay for the upgrade)

    Enjoy your ride

    Red on Black looks sweet!!

    My seat preference (oddly enough).. Woman's Sunlite C-9 Gel (NON SUSPENSION). Larger then a stock saddle, but not huge... AND VERY Comfortable. I actually just ordered the same one for my new Escape.
