    panther - The 7.9 is now being marketed by Trek as a road bike while the drop bar Portland (as shown above) is being marketed as a high speed commuter.

    And people wonder why the term hybrid is so confusing... the 7.9 is not in the strictest sense, a road bike, despite the fact it is made of carbon.

    Tourist, folder. Those aren't hybrids and you know it.

    I don't see any road bikes, Hybrids can run drops, I considered it myself before I went with aero bars, comfort bikes are Hybrids. I would also like to point out that Hybrids can be home grown.

    Pictures of my hybrid:

    This is my Trek 7300, taken at the lunch stop of my first metric century






    If you look to the front of the crusty, ratty Sportster (which is now much cleaner and is once again "in the wind"), you can see the 7300

    Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand

    Sold this one a few months ago - it was the Backup Hybrid to the Big Buzz which is now the Backup Bike to the 'bent. Need to get a new pic of the Buzz.

    Here is my '95 Trek 750 Multi Track in its second nonstock set up.

    And again, in its latest with, almost, with drops added back, RSX brifters and road double cranks.

    I've since found some RSX hubed wheels and have some 28's on order. I loved this so much that I wanted to build a fixie, but alas, verticle drops make for difficult proper chain tension, so that brought in the Timberlin City Slicker.


    This then got turned into a SS for the wife when I found this performance tourer, which got turned into a fixed commuter capable of touring. Which is part of the reason that I got the 750 in the first place.


    Sorry for taking up all this space, just wanted to share.

    And yes, these have all been on the group rides from the shop at some point or other. As a matter of fact, I think I've mentioned before that I rode long and fast rides on the trek for a few years before I figured out that I was being droped because of my gearing.

    Wow droobie - those are fine. I especially like the black one above to the right. It exudes a flavor of how fun it is to go good and fast and nimbly - while in the upright position. Too bad it's not outfitted with the gears - but that could be customized nicely! Anyone who took a spin on such a machine would bury the notion that these are, indeed, a new breed of riders.

    One more shot here for now...

    I took this pic yesterday on the way home. The hues look a little odd I think because of the low sun angle. It's a 1994 Kent, WA, built Nishiki Sport XRS. I got it as a NOS bike (complete with original store price tag and tire nubbies) just about a year ago.



    I consider it a hybrid because:

    . Traditional diamond frame geometry (albeit with a slight slope to the top tube)
    . Fixed suspension
    . 700x38C Kenda hybrid tires (smooth riding with a slightly aggressive tread)
    . Flat handlebar (although I swapped in an Origin8 Space Bar)
    . Lots of mounting lugs (two pair in the back, one in the front, plus two pair of bottle cage braze-ons)
    . Mountain bike gearing with a triple front chain ring

    The bike was built for versatility and perfectly fits the bill for the urban street and trail riding in my area. I wasn't looking for a hybrid, but now that I have one I realize a hybrid perfectly fits my transportation needs.

    Thanx.

    As I said, that black one (Timberlin City Slicker) is now the wife's and she loves to ride it, when she does its for a short commute to work. It doesn't go far, but it can go quick, and she has a mtb if she wants gears. And I just found a Peugeot road bike, if she wants to ride farther.

    hybrid: anything of mixed origin, unlike parts

    The Raleigh Twenty was designed as the folding version of the shopper, an upright bike designed for handling everything the urban landscape could throw at it.

    It is a comfort bike with smaller wheels.

    Originally fitted with a chain guard, fenders, and an internal gear hub it was well suited for running in the wettest weather aside from the fact their braking was very poor.

    My Twenty is no longer an upright bicycle as it has been hybridized with road bars and brakes, the wheels are some robust bmx wheels with a fixed drive, the smaller stock crank was replaced with a lighter road crank, and the brake is also from a bmx.

    Despite the changes it has seen it is still an excellent urban bike that now has greater capabilities when it comes to riding longer distances.

    It is also a fixed gear and a most capable day tourer and followed the same evolutionary process as my Kuwahara mountain bike in that it was adapted to better suit the needs of it's owner.

    Here's mine. It's my foul weather, needs left outside, kid towing, and commuting bike. Why trek? It was the only 25" frame I could get for around $500.


    My then 5 y/o son helped with the reflective tape, he did the artistic (wiggly) bits.

    I went 41.6 mph on this yesterday. Fastest I've gone on any bike yet, including my road bikes with 700c wheels.

    Good to see more 750's out there. I love the old steel feel.
    Never thought of it as a "vintage" bike, but the ones from 80's seem to be considered that. I've had people come up to me admiring my bike and more than a few have asked if I'd be willing to sell it.

    I've had the same thing happen on group rides. On the downhills and flats I can keep up with the B riders, but on the hills I slow to a C speed. But I don't care. Perfectly happy riding solo.

    Trek Valencia used for commuting. Love it so far. My longest commute will be 20 miles RT so this can definitely handle it. Also ride some gravel roads. Wanted something lighter than my 820, with a 700c wheel, disc brakes, and no front suspension. I like flat bars too. To each their own.

    Those twist shifters work well in that location? I've considered putting drop bars on mine but figured I would need either new shifters would would have to figure out how to mount the existing ones.
