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.
2009 Schwinn Tourist.
Beginner bike, $250 from Target.
How are the ergo grips working for you and if you don't mind me asking what make are they?

Nice looking bike,tell us what you like/dislike about it,thanks.
2009 Trek FX 7.3
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.
2010 Cannondale Quick CX FS
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.

I have thoughts
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.
would love to see pics of your Ultra...NICE! How do you like it so far? I haven been too sucessful finding reviews on them to date, so it would be cool to hear your experience. I love mine but the seat is more like a torture device!

BTW, the Quick CX Ultra tips the scales at 26.4 pounds!
