    I'd just call it a beautiful bike, and leave it at that. Hybrid is happy to be inclusive. It doesn't even have a rack, and those nice wheels...

    That's what I thought; I wish more hybrids had large chain rings, I haven't had too much luck finding one.

    That's because many hybrids have their roots in MTB hence an MTB crankset. If you want 52 look at some flat bar road bikes too.

    Hi giantcfr1 and you all out there. Here in the UK virtually all of our Hybrid Road Bikes have a default 52:42:30 triple set-up and if it is a compact it is most likely going to be a 52:38.
    The 3 images in my post #4526 albeit there are only two bikes in real terms are in principle set up the same, albeit the 50cm Fuji is a single ring with a 20tooth fixed sprocket and the Scott is a triple set-up They have a 52 tooth ring.
    The 52cm Scott came with the 52;42:30 set-up but now runs with a 52:42:28. and an 11:12:14:16:18:21:24:28 rear cassette.
    The common link with all of my bikes and including my 50cm Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Alu Carbon,the image shown, is that they all run with 140mm Thorn Crank Arms and Stronglight chain-rings.

    Not a Hybrid Road Bike but linked to the chain-rings issues
    The Bianchi is a 50:40:28 set-up with a 13:14:15:16:17:19:23:26 rear cassette.

    Hi guapo717. If it is my Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Alu Carbon--Reparto Corse that you are referring to,then I totally agree. However,she is Italian and Campagnolo Mirage driven and a genuine Italian one, at that.
    This little madam is an absolute dream of a ride.
    I have recently sold my absolutely immaculate 2001 Bianchi Gold Race 600 Reparto Corse.
    Prior to recently moving home I had 4 bikes,but a smaller situation has meant having to let go of one of my bikes.

    re: compact cranks, they are generally 50:42 even on race bikes. they are paired with an 11T rear high gear, and 50:11 is a taller gear than the traditional racers 53:13

    me, I have one of those 48T fronts, and my bike came with an 11-34 rear, and there was no way in hades I was going to be pushing that tall of a gear except downhill with a tailwind. I swapped my rear for an 13-26 to get a closer spaced gear set, and the 48:13 high gear is spun out at about 35 MPH down a grade, thats way plenty fast enough for me. my level ground cruising speed is rarely much over 18 MPH.

    assuming you mean my blue one, thats a 2010 Globe Vienna 02, sold by Specialized, and basically the same as the Sirrus base model. I scored the bike in like-new condition for $300, and have probably spent nearly that much fixing it up to my tastes, hah.

    Well you learn somrthing new everyday, a flatbar road bike is actually called a Hybrid Road Bike. I didn't know that, but I'll go with it. Maybe that's why my flat bar road bike thread wasn't welcomed in the 41, lol

    Here's a picture of my Trek 7.6 FX (2012 model) I took on one of my first rides this Summer. I have since changed the pedals to Shimano SPD road touring pedals and promptly had my first slow-mo fall! Nothing bruised but my pride!

    Hi to you all out there. I hope that you will understand what I am getting at,but when you are replying to a specific posting it would help tremendously if a reference to that post was credited/attributed in the reply.As an example, Hi Fred,Bill Carol or whomever posted the item that had caught your attention.
    You guys are mainly from the same side of the "Pond", but as I am from that 'Farting little place called England' and actually inputting to existing posts/threads I am sometimes/more often than not in the dark as to who the responses are about/for.
    One of you Chaps/Chap'esses referred to Compact Cranks when in fact you mean compact chain-rings or chain-sets. Cranks or Crank Arms are the things that the pedals are fastened to and the chain-rings or bolted or riveted to these as a Chain-set.
    Your ears are your rear end guardians,don't clutter them.Happy & Safe Riding to you All.

    on this side of the pond, they are commonly called cranksets, which are the cranks + chainrings. and compact cranks is sloppy shorthand for compact crankset. this usage ('compact crank') is really pretty common,

    Your bike is in very good nick, MX3! Have you had to replace any major parts on it? I've already changed the chain on mine, as the one it came with was pretty standard and wasn't allowing me to change gears easily. What a difference the new one has made though. Works like a charm!

    Cheers giantcfr1! I'll bet it's pretty chilly up in Kyoto. Do you do much riding over the Winter there? Fortunately, Kobe hardly sees any snow if at all, so I should be able to cycle all through the cold months. I've got my jacket and booties and am just waiting for this balaclava to be delivered and I'll be all set: http://ec2.images-amazon.com/images/...L._SL1000_.jpg
    I'm still building up my stamina for long rides (50km is my limit at the moment), but I would like to make it up to Kyoto in the Spring or early Summer. Speaking of that neck of the woods, have you ever ridden around Lake Biwa?
