I wish I could have gone on this ride... I would have taken my modded out hybrid since I still don't have my green Miyata 1000 touring bicycle.

Just added the Trek 730(1993) to our stable yesterday. The 700 was bought new in 1990 and was just handed down to our ten year old daughter.....she loves it.
Here's my 2006 Kona Dew Deluxe...love it.
Now back to lurking...Pete
kevinsubaru, didn't you know flat bars are only suitable for short rides? Haha. Nice bikes.
Yes it is. The yellow water-bottle sets it off very nicely, too. Yellow & blue are very complimentary colors.
How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
Velo Orange Milan bars, similar to Mary bars I think, just much cheaper lol. I have since added different grips (RAV-X ergonomic grips). For a brief time I also tried a Soma Sparrow bar, but it seemed too narrow. At any rate I no longer even think about making any changes to the bars and grips..it is very comfortable.
Mary bars would be good too, especially if you want them in black. I taped mine up to hide the silver.
My "hybrid" or maybe not. It is a Stumpjumper with fenders and rack. I did not do anything to it that keeps it from going back to full MTB duty. I have two sets of wheels, these are Specialized Nimbus 1.5. The others are MTB treaded.
You must have an awfully long extension cord to ride with that light.
oops - i meant single speed - not fixed gear. is this also an expensive conversion? can i just remove the 9 or 10 speed cassette and replace it with a single cog?
i appreciate the help. it'll be the future fad. instead of turning 70s/80s road bikes into fixies and single speeds, ppl are going to start doing it with hybrids! =P
