    This is my dumpster find Nikishi cromoly Hybrid. This is a picture from last summer. Now it has a different rack, proper fenders, a tan B17, shorter reach stem andergo grips. My son is riding it. Absolutely great all-purpose bike.

    My steptrough alu Diamant Hybrid. Used to have flatbars that I did not like so I put Northroads.

    This bike is getting a tune up ths winter. Nead greasing, new cabels and housing, two new front chainwheels, chain and casette. Did not take good pix since I am not used to hybrids being presented like this.

    My 2008 Giant Cypress. It helped me return to cycling and lose 40 lbs. It's been 100% reliable.

    I still don't know why you bought that, Michael. You replaced it within a few months, no?

    The cranks on that look kind of like the ones on my 1994 Nishiki hybrid. You might want to check out the recall forum and see if they are the infamous Shimano Death Cranks- they can crack at any time. If so, you can get them replaced for free by Shimano with cranks that don't look as cool but are less likely to fall apart on you. The recall kit includes a new bottom bracket, new cranks, new front derailleur and new chain.

    Here's my 2009 Trek 7.6FX. Modifications so far: Terry Fly Ti saddle, Wellgo clipless pedals, Ergo GR2 clamp-on grips with bar ends, scratches and new front brake cable following a crash. Oh, and a little bell.

    True, true, true.

    It still is used as a utility bike. There is a 30 mile crushed stone path in Northern Illinois, should I take the Cypress?

    Here's a photo of the hybrid that got me back into cycling back in June 2007. I looked at Trek, Specialized, Fuji, but decided on this one. Bike was very responsive and served me well.

    I ended up selling it in May 2008 to one of my cousins. Funny, because when ever we ride, I always check the computer, check/adjust derailleurs,brakes,etc. or just ride it.

    Nice bike, what is the above statement has to do with selling your bike?

    I'm glad to see the new Hybrid forum, and did vote yes for it. Here's my '93 Bianchi Avenue that I bought new. Bianchi's term for the hybrid series at the time was "Cross Terrain". It has a chrome moly lugged steel frame.

    Modifications include Sun wheels with sealed bearings from Harris cyclery. Schwalbe Marathon 700x32 tires, and closer ratio (than original) 6 speed freewheel.


    SKS fenders and Transit rear rack.


    Ergon grips and Patrick Star navigation system.

    Nice. Here is my 2 year old Trek 7000. I've done some upgrades to add some speed / strength due to my size. The bike has been a lot of fun.

    96 Trek 790 commuter bike. I pedaled through the Boston Big Dig to Charleston all 4 seasons for
    most of it's construction. With plenty of centuries on it I guesstimate about 24,000 miles.
    A bottle generator lit the front and rear lights. It is still in great shape as I gave it to a family
    member.

    I replaced the Trek 790 with a Specialized Tricross as a winter bike commuter/fun bike.
    I consider the Tricross a hybrid as I don't believe it is a true cross bike. I like the Tricross
    as I had never used drop bars in the winter time before.

    Hey I lived in Weymouth for years almost 20 actually. I lived up on the hill next to the Sons of Italy off Broad st. Too Funny, small world

    The Big Dig in Boston was the greatest face-lift ever done to a city. It has its bad press but man is the city beautiful now. I can actually get around it now with my tractor trailers. Great piece of engineering,to bad the contractors were corrupt

    Big Dig.. thought it was the crooked politicians that set the stage for stealing tax money.
    OFD. I've been in Weyouth for 12 years now. I did find a mostly side street route to get
    to Boston. (C-dale flat bar 10-speed)

    I was East Weymouth, We inadvertently ruined the town. What happend was we voted to go from town government to a city government. Sounded like a great idea at the time, there would be more money available for the new police station / fire station (incredible building) new police cars and the ladder truck that didn't fit in the new fire station ( don't get me going on that 1)

    What we didn't realize was going to happen was we now had city zoning. well this is what happened. Everyone that could subdivided there property, built a 2nd house then sold them both & got out of Dodge.
    Condos and apartment complexes went up where ever the was enough land.
    Then the infrastructure failed, There was insignificant water pressure to feed all these new dwellings, the roads couldn't handle to congestion. Getting around during peak hours was imposable. That was 10 years ago, What a mess
