I like the bike. Although like others replied what's up with the cables dude?

Here's my Kona Dew plus. It's actually a really versatile bike. I have a set of 700cx28 Rubino Pro's that I use when I want to ride it a little faster, but most times I have a set of 700cx35 Sammy Slick's so I can easy handle some light trail riding when I don't feel like riding my MTB.

I got rid of the stock components, replaced them with SRAM X7, ditched the small chainring and went with 48/36 gearing up front with an 11-28 cassette. I'll eventually have a nice set of wheels built, but I'm not in a big hurry for that. Before someone says anything.... I am tall... I'm 6'8".

So you fit that 61cm frame? I am 6'4" and that looks pretty cramped for me.

Nice! How much have you spent on it since you started?

PatrickGSR94 06-24-12 07:02 AM

On making it more of a "hybrid", less than $100-$150. The rest I have spent recently would have been spent no matter what bike I had - lights, computer, lock, bar ends, etc.

That's not bad at all...I would have done the same. It's looking mighty sporty now!

I recently filled the gap between my roadie and touring/mountain bike with a Rivendell Sam Hillborne. Besides being just plain pretty, it is one incredibly comfortable hybrid bike. I am running 32mm tires now but it has room for up to 45mm on that frame. I can barely stay off it.

Great scoot. Great pics.

Here's a picture of my fiancee's 2012 Giant Escape 1W. She hasn't put too many miles on it yet, but she really likes the bike. The only upgrade so far was the addition of the bar ends (removed from my Rapid).

This is my Hybrid from Istanbul, Turkey. It was a Mountainbike first. Bu I chanced the tires from Specialized Fast Trak LK 29 2.0 to Specialized XC Borough 700x45c. It's more smooth now and fast. When I go to the off road, I'm chancing the tires. It's 2012 Specialized HardRock Sport 29 INT

thanks for the complement as there are a lot of nice hybrids posted here. Your Dr. Fine is looking fine.

Nice Dew!!! Lots of nice Kona's lately.

I have two that would fit the category of hybrid. First is a Rocky Mountain that I hybridized a while back. Got a great deal on the bike and it had just been powdercoated. The fork needed to be rebuilt and the shifters were kinda wonky. I also lightened up the front end with some a modern bar and stem. I replaced the fork as the rebuild kit was only available at some shop in Colorado.

It looks a bit awkward and a little too rake-ish, but it feels very nimble. I first built it with a suspension fork and with slick 26" 1.5" tires on the mountain wheels, but then put on a rigid fork and 700c wheels with a more narrow range cassette. The front brake is still the V but on the rear, I had to go with a road caliper but hey... that just makes it even MORE of a hybrid, right?

I don't ride it much these days as I rarely make it downtown, but this is my go to bike for that as it doesn't attract any attention. When I rode it more, I used a nicer saddle but this Viscount is decent enough for ~2 hour rides.

And my most recent purchase is this Giant Roam 2. I bought it while on vacation in Clearwater. Perfect for my needs down there though it doesn't feel much different than a mountain bike to me though it's obviously a bit faster.

Hear, hear! Love it with the rigid fork. Very stealth-y.

Got it ~3 weeks/500 miles ago. Cannondale quick4. Just leisure for now, when the weather cools down (100+ until fall) I might start commuting.

Not the best pic, but here's my 2012 Trek 7.6 FX that I picked up on Sunday. I added a Cateye Strada Wireless computer and swapped the original Bontrager 700 x 25c all-weather tires for a set of 700 x 35c Bontrager LT2 tires for a slightly softer ride and better capability for when I come across looser surfaces. The underseat bag is a little small and will most likely be swapped out with a larger Topeak model to carry my wallet, keys, and smartphone when riding.
