    Here is my rig. Nothing fancy or expensive, but it rides good and serves my purposes well. I have only been in this for less than 2 months so go easy on me

    Last question, which parts are road? You have posted in the Hybrid area, but your bike looks a lot like it's an MTB.

    Thanks... I'm impressed with this bike, especially at the price. I need to get some better shots, though... that's a terrible picture!

    Yeah my bike started life as a MTB but I'm making it more of a hybrid by changing the tires, fork, eventually adding fenders. The only thing is that the frame isn't exactly the same geometry as the typical road bike.

    Very Nice! I remember searching for Asphalts last Fall and thinking you had the nicest one I came across.

    Hyrbids don't have road geometry, they have a mix of the two. A road frame with flat bars is just a flat bar road bike.

    My Giant Escape 1 came in yesterday, and I got to take it for a nice (rainy) ride around the neighborhood. Already threw on my lighting setup and water bottle, really enjoying it.

    Sweet looking bike you have there. I really wish my bike would come in so I could get some riding in. I'm jealous.

    Absolutely stunning.
    Did you ever tell us this is what you were going to do? I don't remember seeing that and I would have remembered.

    You mean about purchasing it? Yes, I created a thread asking for suggestions and one or two people recommended the Escape 1. It was in my price range, and it fit with what I had in mind. Plus, you mentioned how smooth the shifting was (which is butter-smooth I might add) and that helped my decision as well.

    As a side note, can you see all the brake residue on the rims? That created a lot of squealing. I was thinking this might be normal wet weather break-in (?), but I may still upgrade the pads later on.

    I guess we are pretty forgiving here anyway, because no-one really knows what a hybrid is. We'll call it a hybrid then.
