    ebay 1982 or 83 univega alpina uno, triple butted frame. the black chrome finish is not so good but the structural condition is very good, just some stone pits on the front tube. sun cr-18 rims and sapim racer spokes, nashbar city tires, sram 8 speed, when all is said and done 26lbs. normal vbakes operated backwards, they spring into the rim instead of out. the hole for the spring was on the outside not on the wheel side of the frame. i had a set of vbrakes that had 2 holes for the coil spring 180 degrees apart that solved the problem.

    Here is my brand new Giant Escape 0 . I picked it up today.

    I've been reading here for a while in the search for a new hybrid so thanks for helping me make my decision.

    I recently retired (well nearly retired, still doing some assignments) and treated myself to a new bike late last year.

    Found a deal on a 2012 model a Cannondale Quick SL-1, picture below:

    Loving the bike - heck I think I will try starting an 'official Cannondale Quick' thread to see if there are many other owners enjoying their 'Quicks'

    That is a great looking bike, especially love that fork.
    Pray for me. I have fallen into the clutches of the “Steel is Real” crowd, and I don’t know if I will ever be able to escape.

    Relatively new here, first bike I bought for myself, a GT Timberline 1.0 2014, however I slowly replaced each component this past 4 months, all that is left from stock are the frame and saddle. Used the old parts to build a new bike for my in-law. Just rode 1000+ km with it yesterday.



    Regarding the amount of mudguards, here in the Philippines it rains all year round, and for those sunnny days/nights, you still have road puddles, dog/cat/rat pee and some other stuff on the road that you don't want flying towards your face or water bottle.

    Great looking GT "grand tourer" well it could be if you wanted to with racks.

    Thanls for the compliment. Thought about adding racks, but I'm in no hurry in doing very long distances atm. Also, I wanted to be still able to do light trails, mostly hard pack around here.

    Picked up this one yesterday, Schwinn Searcher from an ad on CL. It's been completely refurbished; ready to ride. All it took was a 1 mile test ride and I bought it. I think it's circa 1995. My 1st hybrid. :-)

    Thanks! It's basically a Roubaix with a flat bar, so it goes pretty nicely. On the flats I avg 16-17mph and it cruises nicely around 18-19mph.

    My 82 Schwinn World Sport modernized. I decided to cannibalized my wife's Schwinn Sporterra since she no longer rides it. Replaced the 27" steel wheels, 2 x 5 speed with the 8 speed Nexus IGH and 700 x 42c wheels & Continental City Contact tires. (only 38.5mm on these rims) Also installed a sealed bottom bracket and Truvativ Cranks. I will soon replace the twist shifter with a Alfine 8 speed trigger and may put the orginal cranks back on when I can cut that 52t ring off. No weight gain and still at 29lbs and rides nicely!

    It's hard to take good pics of a silver bike outside!




    About a year ago I had changed out the stem and drop bars with a Velo Postino Handlebar and riser stem. I have the original Bontrager Saddle from my Sawyer and original peddels from my Kona.
