    The padlock is a China made, cost around $12, again nothing special. 230 gr.

    Some might think that I am so daring to bring such little security for my bike. But the fact is that bike theft in Singapore is not as rampant as in other big cities in US or other places. But still, low crime doesn't mean no crime. So at school, I have left another set (chain and padlock) so I can double up the security without carrying two sets of lock. At office, I normally lock the bike with just the cable and padlock to the railing outside my office door (still inside the building). At home, when I have to leave the bike outside I double up the security with a set of stronger chain and padlock (Stanley brand, laminated steel with shroud), recently bought by my wife as a 'gift' so I can leave the bike outside ^^". 590gram, so I never carried it around. hehe..

    This is my Specialized Crossroads Elite. It's all stock except for the stem, seat post, and Topeak rack/bag. Well, and the tires.

    Thanks, they are the Planet Bike Full Hybrid. They come with no mud flaps so I added the mud flaps from the Cascadias to add a little bit more coverage.(Dirt cheap from PlanetBike.com) They are much sleeker looking compared to the Cascadias due to the single curved over stay.

    Giant Cypress-R Rebuild

    A very basic Giant Cypress-R frame built up with a Kona Karbon Kross CX fork, a Truvativ Touro compact crank, 105 8-speed STI, and Tektro CX cantis. I switch between Specialized Nimbus EX (700 x 28) touring tires and old IRC Cross Country (700 x 35) knobbies. The only changes made since the pic were to replace the rear brake with a Tektro Mini-V for better heel clearance and to replace the Wellgo clipless pedals with Time ATACs. A great cheap and dirty pocket rocket.

    No, both my wife's and my Giant Escape RX Composites have been upgraded to complete 105 drivetrains. You can read about it here:Yet another new Giant Escape RX Composite owner(s)

    I wasn't actually but I think there are many people who upgraded their chainset to an originally road component like me.

    A lot of performance hybrids use mostly road components. But you're right, people like to upgrade and if DIY, the parts aren't much more expensive.

    Cool, thanks. That's what I thought. I was under the impression that the RX track bags weren't compatible with the MTX track racks, but it looks like that's what you have...? The size of your bag looks like it would work well for my needs.

    I think all the track racks have the same width track and the same latch bar. The difference is the length and how they attach to the bike. My bag is not as long as my rack but it works fine.

    This is the rack I have, I got rid of the flat steel attachment hardware and made my own from aluminum tubing:

    Or you can just use Bontrager large strut kit #427332 (black) for around $5.00 bucks from a local Trek dealer. That has two black alum posts that will attach to the rack mounts and the topeak rack via a couple of c clips. You can follow the discussion here: The rear rack question.

    Making your own is more fun, easy, and if you're a scrounger, almost free!

    Yes that's right,many people have. I myself had a 105 and ultegra mix on mine before it was destroyed after I was hit by a motorbike. Many hybrids have road parts these days, so in my view, it's the norm now, rather than the exception.
    I read your original post as if it was something you thought was unique.

    Looks impressive alright.


    If I am reading Planet Bike's Fender information correctly, it would appear that I have no choice but to use their Cascadia 29er Fenders as it is the only fender they sell that is designed for tyres larger than 38mm.


    What size tyres are you running?
    You can have my Disc Brakes, when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

    I'm running Bontrager H2's in 38mm width which are fairly true to size.

    I think 38mm is the largest size they recommend for your fenders.

    Do you have a view on how well your fenders would likely work on say a 40mm wide tyre?

    Recently upgraded the disc brakes to Avid BB7, changed the 3x8 drivetrain to 1x9, and today, got new grips and bar ends.
