    I dropped it off at the LBS today. They have to order some parts and it usually takes until Friday but they have two other bikes that need parts so they are overnighting everything. Plus, it's stormy here and they were slow so I think they started on it as I was leaving. I should have it by Friday and maybe sooner!

    my Giant Roam

    I just completed what appears to be the final upgrade to this bike. The pedals were replaced with magnesium Wellgo platforms, I added a Bontrager wireless computer, Specialized bar ends, a Topeak saddle bag, and, after several trials and tribulations, a WTB Pure saddle. I think this will hold me for at least a year. By then I'll be ready for a Bad Boy.

    Finally got it built up!

    This bike is largely an experiment in geometry. If it works out for me and ends up being a long-term bike, that will be great. But, I'm looking at different aspects of the way it rides and if identify aspects of it that I don't like so much, I'll move on to another frame. My eventual goal is to narrow down exactly what I want and go custom on the frameset.

    I'm having some teething issues right now. For some reason the LBS put the grips on upside down, the handlebars were tilted too far back, the shifters are too close to the grips, the stem is not quite straight and the brakes started rubbing in the first 50 meters of riding it. The rear deraileur is also ghost shifting. I had the ghost shifting issue with my last bike and I'm not sure if it's my shifters or if I'm just too heavy (380 lbs) and am flexing the frame too much.

    I got all the ergonomics straightened out, the brakes readjusted and the last several minutes of riding the ghost shifting had stopped. I'm hoping it's just the parts settling in from being used for the very first time.

    Great stuff. It's a pity the LBS made some initial errors.

    Lotus Classique Road to Hybrid

    Since converting my Trek 613 to riser bars, I have found riding much more enjoyable... especially for my neck and back. I have also decided to convert my Lotus Classique for a more upright riding position.
    The road bars have been replaced with 50mm riser bars. I added Suntour Thumb Shifters and Tektro Eclipse brake levers. Basically the same setup as my Trek 613 conversion except not quite as high ( http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...Hybrid/page195 ).
    The Lotus is equipped with a Suntour gen. 1 Cyclone GT, Sugino LP triple (46-36-26), and an IRD 14-28 freewheel. Newly built 700C Velocity Razor wheels with Dia-Compe ENE high profile hubs.

    I tried to search for a Miso Hybrid Bicycle and can't find a thing. Can you tell us about the brand?

    I live in Seoul so imported bikes are rather expensive here (thanks to tariffs, same deal with electronics). So the Korean brands have the low-mid end tied up as there's not much competition there. Miso is the brand of a small bike shop I went to that doesn't carry Samchully (the company behind 7 or 8 different brands of Korean bikes, mostly cheap and found everywhere, Lespo is their most famous brand here). I bought a Samchully online (about $140 built and delivered, came the next day) not knowing much about bikes and being completely drawn in by the price (how bad could it be?). The thing looked nice, but it felt slightly cramped (18inch frame, I'm 180cm - this Miso bike is a 19.5inch frame), the brakes were crap and the gear shifting was not precise at all as there were no indicators on the levers. So not wanting another uber cheap bike I found these forums, learned more about what kind of bike I really wanted and was determined to stay away from anything with no name components, cheap plastic pedals and most importantly one that would fit me.

    Anyway, I really don't know much about the brand itself, you can go to the web site http://misobike.co.kr/ and under products click 3rd generation to see my bike, but the info is all in Korean. To my knowledge there's just the one small bike shop carrying it. I've seen about 3-4 of them in the wild (I've never seen the same colour as mine, just the white). The shop will service my bike free of charge as an added bonus and they will even come to my house to repair it if I have a broken chain or some other crippling problem free of charge.

    For reference, here's a picture of that first bike which I bought online and decided after one ride to get rid of it lol

    Thanks for the info and link. Is Korea part of the TPP discussion? If they join maybe your tariffs and high import tax etc. will be dropped. If not, Japan is just a short flight away. Come with your credit card and pick up a bargain.
