    Take a look at the new wide/narrow chainrings that allow you to run a single ring without rollers or pie plates up front.

    Well let me test you on that...lots of folks here don't like the mass merchant bikes, but I was glad to see the 90% support of the guy from MI who bought his 1st bike from Wally World. I'm still pleased with my Schwinn Trailway from Target. I've added a rack since the last update and it's still holding up well except this past w/e on the way to bike on a MUP my daughters car rack dropped down, dragging the pavement and the front tire & some of the aluminum rim got chewed up. I've been riding it a lot and I'm still happy with it though. I'm fully prepared to say you guys were right when I have major component failure, but so far so good. I enjoy my restored Fuji road bike too and ride it some, but the more upright hybrid set-up is just more comfortable. I'll probably want a Absolute when I wear out the Trailway.

    Heh, I love racks on bikes and your shade of blue is gorgeous.

    Also there is something nifty about getting heaps of usage out of a bike that doesn't cost the world, that anyone could have.
    You can have my Disc Brakes, when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

    Not sure if she belongs here or in the C&V forum, it's a GT Arette Hybrid, I bought the bike new around 1990, rode it for a while then garaged it until last year. I've put about 900 miles on it since last June, added the bar ends, aero bars (more for a different riding position then aerodynamics) and pedals and ride 50 to 100 miles a week along the canal routes.

    After finding out that Shimano makes 7-speed brifters, I converted my flatbar Trek Multitrack 750 to a dropbar setup. Here's a photo of it out on the local rail trail today, it rode great!

    That is such a unique looking bike. Amazing.

    Looks like Giant changed the frame up quite a bit from 2014 to 2015.

    This weekend I picked up a new Specialized Sirrus and a Burley Solo trailer for my son. I have a few upgrades that I'm planning but as it sits the bike and trailer ride great!

    Here's a couple of the 2013 Fuji Absolute 2.1 today. Only changes since the last time are the Sigma wired computer and micro LED front and rear lights.

    All those handlebar add-ons are appealing to my inner nerd. Very appealing.

    Thank you for your kind words. I really like this bike. The ride is super smooth - by far the most comfy bike I own, and fairly lightweight also
