This is my Bull. I build it myself piece by piece including the wheels. I used it for work, shopping, touring.
Nothing special - Alivio 3x8, LX brakes, Novatech hubs, Rigita rims, Kenda tyres.

Picked this up yesterday, 2009 Jamis Coda Sport. I worried about the color but it has a nice reddish mahagony hue.

Not giving me much hope for what I can sell my one year old Navigator 1.0 for I wish I knew about the 7000 series when I bought my Navigator.

Interesting general question. A lot of the "ergo" grips I see seem to have typical kinda slick rubber. The ones I have look very matte and are ever so sightly, kinda sticky. I sweat a LOT, so what I have now is actually quite good, it's VERY rare that I feel my hand slipping...

My Trek 7300fx

I bought it in 2005 and have used it mainly as a path and urban/city bike. The only items still stock are the frame, fork, saddle, and seatpost.

Drivetrain is full XT except for Deore Cranks with 26/36/48t rings. An 11-34t cassette is in back. Wheels are durable 32 spoke Mavic T520s with XT hubs.

An Origin 8 SpaceBar with ergo grips makes for a comfortable riding position. When Conty 28c Sportcontacts are mounted, the bike ride very plush. My intention is to start using it for light trail riding so I just mounted 40c Michelin TransSprint tires to it. It's not so buttery smooth on pavement now, but isn't terrible either.

Your Quick is sick! I need to get our boss at Quick Messenger Service to outfit the fleet with those. Haha, that might happen.

Here's my old Marin Mill Valley with a 'crash replacement' frame. They sell frames at cost to customers who crashed their bikes and in my case to a customer whose bike showed no evidence of crash and probably should have been covered under warranty and replaced for free. I have this one now. It's a nice looking bike. I can't pull my BAW trailer with the carbon stay. I think straight round tubes are stronger vs. weight than curved ones, but it's a nice looking frame. We have the earliest blooming azalea in Maryland, you should have seen it last week.

Nice shot of the bike. Wouldn't it be a better trailer if it towed from the seat post rather than the rear stay. It might be me but and can't help to compare it to a ball hitch and a 5th wheel hitch. I would think it would transfer the load better over both wheels rather than on just the rear

It might be a better trailer, but it wouldn't be my trailer! My BikesAtWork trailer is designed to carry the load balanced over the trailer wheels. There shouldn't be significant tongue weight if loaded properly.

Generally speaking, weight on a bike is best carried as low as possible. My BOB trailer distributes weight between the trailer's single wheel and the bicycle's rear wheel.

They are Avenir Ergo Grips I am almost sure of it. I used to sell very similar ones that came with the Diamondbacks. Spoony that is a nice ride for 250 really. I check this bike out every time I go into Target. But then I realize I don't need any more bikes, especially one I won't even ride really.
