    Yes but the 41 don't welcome flat bar road bikes on their subforum so we welcome them here as hybrids.

    My 91 Schwinn Crosscut I'm currently setting up as a commuter/tourer style hybrid.



    It's a db lugged cr-mo frame with cr-mo forks , stays and stem. I've replaced the straight bars for trekking bars, leather covered gel saddle with a Brooks B17, and the exage 400LX brakes for Tektro CR720's so far. Next will be a set of SKS Longboard fenders then 700 x 38 tires if they fit and if not then 700 x 35.

    Wait a Boll-Weevil second - which Trek is that??
    Not just a road Bike, this is directly quoted from Trek's web site FK Bikes:

    FX is our most popular bike, with good reason. It offers a best-of-both-worlds combination of road bike speed and city bike comfort. It's a perfect fitness bike, and so much more.
    FX is fast, fun, and agile enough for a multitude of uses. Roadies, commuters, fitness fans, errand runners, Sunday riders... everybody loves FX.

    My new 64cm baby....... I know, I know, some will accuse me of shilling for Bikes Direct. I've read all of the threads. Since my father taught me to fix my own flats as a boy, for which I am grateful, I've been working on my own bikes. Assembly and adjustment didn't intimidate me. The only thing that gave me some trouble was the rear derailleur. The wheels came perfectly tensioned and trued. Even the brakes were properly adjusted. It is light and fast and silky smooth. I couldn't be happier with it.Bikeresize2.jpgresizebike.jpg

    Why do you need to upgrade the wheels?
    Regardless, I would go with mavic open pro rims if you want to go for speed on the road only, or a set of Nukeproof 650B (go wide) and hit the trails.

    Nice looking bike.

    What's the story with the two sets of lights on the handlebars?

    Thanks CS - I use the less-powerful Cateye for lighting up the road nearer to me (or sometimes as a blinky) and the Sigma Roadster (which has a very wide beam) for illuminating more distant terrain. The setup works well for me.

    That sounds like a good approach, I might do that myself at some point.

    Have someone else post it I guess. I can copy and paste but on a fresh post it always shows as a thumbnail. Nice bike and great shot.
