1/2 of a 26 & 29er. Just for a day or 2. A couple weeks ago I found a great deal on the 11 speed Alfine Hub & I'm having it put on the wheel now. I took the rear wheel off my Electra for the time being...1X7 now and only front brakes. Actually rides pretty good like this!

Thanks ApoZ! That's what I thought/hoped as well.

It's a 69er That's a craze that's that's gone on in the MTB world before, you could buy new bikes setup like that but haven't heard much about them recently.

I saw my first GF Sawyer yesterday, but didn't get a chance to ride it. They also look great in the flesh (so to speak)

Was it 2012? I have yet to see another sawyer anywhere. I've run in to only 1 guy that knew I was on a sawyer when he spotted me....& it was 2am & he just came off the beach from shark fishing.

Have you seen the sawyer another guy from Japan posted in the commuter forum? He put 28mm tires with 11spd alfine hub....had a belt on it but took it off. It looked pretty sweet!

Sadly I didn't check the year or take a pic. I was at a bike show in Osaka (held each year) and it was at the TREK stand.
We have a "Project One" shop here in Kyoto and they don't have them in stock so sadly I've not seen one around town. It's a pity because there are plenty of frame builders here that build similar, so I know Trek would be on a winner if they pushed them. I haven't been on the commer forum for a long time. I better check it out.

I bought this yesterday on Kijiji. Nice, comfy 4130 frame. They haven't made Mikados for over ten years, but this one needed no work at all, and the rack is a brand new Axiom. Nothing fancy, but I like it.

Well, you probably saw the bronze 2012. Sadly they didn't make them for 2013. Here's the guy iFold's Sawyer.

Finally found a true hybrid frame for my wheels - the one I posted earlier was an old race frame. This allows me to use 38c tires, fenders and racks:

Been told by a couple folks who know, those Handspun wheels are VERY good for the price, you can't buy the parts that cheaply, and they are quite well made. Being an old school kinda rider, I like 36H. And I like how those Velocity rims are relatively unadorned with branding graphics (ditto, my Globe frame has no big ugly decals on the main tubes).

The cheap noname hub 32H alex rim wheelset on my Globe has already got some side-to-side funkies on the front wheel and I've only put about 50 miles on the bike. :-/

Wow, you've done well with the frame. It's a beauty and the bike has come up looking trumps.

Anyone try the Ergon pedals on their hybrid?



they are a bit pricy, but they look like a great alternative to the BMX pin pedals I've been using.

Flat bars do not a hybrid make...

Is this a roadie or hybrid? Cannondale R1000 road frame, 700x23c tires, road gearing with Shimano 105x9 rear and Shimano Dura-Ace x2 front, but flat bars and a swing shock. Perhaps that makes it a true hybrid.

yeah, anything-other-than-dropbars pretty much defines a hybrid nowdays.

I saw a Cervelo today, complete with fancy deep V racing wheels and super-skinny tires, converted to a single speed, using a gutted derailleur as the chain slack takeup, with flatbars. I guess that a fixie', which isn't really a 'hybrid'.

Hi Pierce,
Do you find that these Ergo pedals really hold your feet in place like the BMX pin pedals do?
Best regards
