Second day on the road, up to 25 miles so far on this bike. This pic is on the west side of Elliott Bay looking at the Seattle skyline. A nice bike trail goes all along the perimeter of the bay, mostly next to the water.
I think it's a cool looking conversion. I like the look of the handlebars with the bar ends horizontal and tape wrapped, if they are actually bar ends and not complete bars?.

A quick shot of my Giant Seek 2
Now I know why its a GIANT!
Here's my Surly Cross Check.....I originally built it with drop bars, but I find this configuration makes more sense for my style of riding.
95 Cannondale CAAD3 (or 2.8...anyone know the difference?)

Presenting my 2012 Sirrus Elite, purchased in late 2011 and ridden just a few miles shy of 900. I do tons of 20-30 mile blasts on this thing all the time. It handles basically any hill you could throw at it, along with good stability at downhill speeds. Over all I love the bike.
I agree. Several years ago 26" wheels were standard on hybrid bicycles.
I think you may be mistaken about 26" wheels being the standard size for hybrids at any point since the beginning of hybrid time.
After cleaning my bike today, I was thinking how happy I am with my purchase, even tough it was back 5 years ago. What I love about the looks of this bike, are the clean welds. I know it's only "clay" under there, but it's nice to know the company goes to the bother to finish a job off.
I see (on the forum "Post pictures of your hybrid) you managed to attach it properly. How did you do this?
Why did you cut the fender short in front?
Oh yea, here's my Trek 7.5 FX (without the fenders) :
I pop in here every once in a while to see how things have changed. Nice bikes, people!
Here's my daily rider...
I am curious as to your Trek 7.5FX -what year and size is it? I ask because I have a 2012 7.4FX, which is a 17.5 inch frame. A picture is attached. I notice that if I follow the line of the top tube and "extend" it, it would be below the top of theTrek 7.4FX-A.jpg rear tire. Trek literature says that the 2012 7.4FX only came in one color, that which I have. Also, the female version only comes in a 17" and is a different color, so that can't be it:-)).
But I question why the top tube angle difference.
Thanks and best regards
