With switching to a set of "trekking bars", I found to put a light, bar mounted waterbottle cage and cycle computer in the smallish space I had ment the "computer" had to be set at a odd angle. I too got the "stem kit" for my CatEye Velo 8 and really like the location "better" than on the bars too!

One of DC's fastest messengers rides one of those gold 7.2s. His cogs aren't nearly as shiny as yours. Nice pictures.

You can use the regular link from Photobucket and insert it using the icon above the post window. The square one with the tree.

Or from Photobucket copy the image link one and just paste it here directly.

Nice bike, urbanlegend. I was torn for a while between that one and a Trek 7.3. Ended up with a 7.3 Hope you enjoy yours as much as I am mine, only ridden 20 miles because of weather, but will be on it after weather breaks.

Not mine yet, but am certainly tempted to get one of these shipped from the UK. Titanium frame, carbon forks and bars, Hydraulic disk brakes, and only 2299.99

My new Pride & Joy!

11-a.jpg Here she is. This is outside my window at work, after the morning commute. A Giant FCR-2 with rack, pannier, fenders, trekking bars and a kickstand. I love it. I think this bike is going to get a lot of miles this year!

Here's a couple new shots of the 7200 after the conversion. Standard components - Tektro RL520's, Shimano 8sd bar ends and 45cm Nitto Rando bars. I love the ride. I liked the trekking bars I used to have but the drops are much better for how I like to ride.

I already posted a couple of pictures of my Trek 7.5 FX (in it's own thread) when I first got it, but here's another with it's stable-mate my Trek Navigator 2.0, and a second shot of the custom decal I added to the 7.5FX:

Posted in Commuter thread but as it's a bona fide hybrid......

Oh my teary eyes, how much I've missed you!
That two wheeled beauty I have befriended
9000 miles and so much much to do!
To the LBS, I'll get you mended!

Oh, now how you stand all resplendent
With new stem, headset and fenders black
no hydraulics for it was meant!
Let's get you home tae fit yer rack

The Surf (aka Rabbi Burns) 2010


Got a Cube Nature over a year ago and did some big miles in the first year. It became apparent what was actually needed to undertake a years worth of commuting so:

New Fork - Surly Karate Monkey CroMo 29er (got rid of the stock hydraulic job....no use)
Two wheel rebuilds with DMR Revolver disc hubs front and rear (cartridge bearings...banish the cup and cone hubs)
New FSA headset (cartridge bearing)
Shorter stem (I was feeling a bit stretched over the bike)
And a Avid BB7 disc brake system with Avid levers and Goodridge cabling. I needed a system that i could easily maintain and was robust (ditched the failing Hayes Stroker Ryde set)

Trying to find optimum position so I have not cut the steerer yet. It feels a lot better than it did set up like this though and I'm looking forward to doing some big miles. The angle I went for on the rebuild was to make the bike as easy to maintain as possible but only time will tell if I've made the right choices.

other info:

Shimano Deore OEM 48/36/26 crank on XT hollowtec II bottom bracket (the last XT BB lasted 6000miles!!!!!)
XT long cage derailleur (again the XT jockeys lasted 6000 miles)
Thomson seat post seems to have remedied my habit of breaking them.
And Ergo grips...comfort is everything.
