    This is my first ever posting on this site. I have to say "Wow", 47 pages and lot of 'hybrids'.

    I see lot of nice bikes posted here. Tip of my hat to the Bianchi riders. Bigger tip of my hat to the steel riders. I will also tip my hat to you hybrid wannabies running trails treadless, your courage exceeds my own.

    This is my Boardwalk, the equipment is all original except for the new seat I purchased today. The bike is came stocked with Diacompe brakes and Sun Tour PoweRing drive train with XC_ components. Maybe someone can tell me what year this bike is, not that it matters much. The frame is Tange Cro Mo, it could use some touch up paint in several places, but where to find the real celeste paint? Well, not real, but the right tone for my ride...

    Ah, which Blaze? I went cheap and got a Beamer 3... for 20 bucks it sure seems damn good. But I've been doing some sweeping on moonlight rides and am thinking of the 2W Blaze...

    Thanks. Wrestled with decision on tires, and decided to go with previous setup of 700X35 Invert Select for 3 yrs on 2007 Trek. OK for trail and local street riding. Like others, did think about the quicker roll on a thinner tire, but someday plan to get road bike for speed/distance riding.

    Half-watt Blaze. Couldn't pass up deal at LBS with SuperFlash Tail Light included in combo set that retailed for $60, bought for $20. Head light is bright, but beam is narrow/focused.

    This is my machine, a 2010 Trek Valencia. It does fall more into the Commuter/Light Touring class, and is specifically designed for road use, but is still great on harder packed trails despite the slicks. I've since added some better pedals and a bar end mirror after this picture.

    I tried a couple of PB Blazes, yes, their beams were too narrow and focused for my taste with numerous motorists pulling out across intersections from my left. I've since upgraded my PB Blazes and Superflash to a Magic Shine headlight/taillight, and DiNotte combo, taking care of my left hand "drive out" issues.

    I bought a 2007 Trek a few years back and loved it. i started commuting to work and when i lived close enough to campus i rode it there last year however since i moved a few miles away i haven't gotten back into the groove of things. but i still love that bike am just now getting back into it

    so i figured i'd offer some pictures to show it off.



    Sweet Ergon Grips


    Wrapped my bontrager bar ends in bar tape.


    Sweet Novara saddle bag


    i just put these wellgo large toe clips and straps on but haven't tried them out yet. they seem hard to get used to beucase the gravity pulls the straps to the underside.



    Rear rack with reflector tape and light


    and just for kicks here's a card board cut out of the Most Interesting Man in the World wearing my helmet and Capitals jersey

    Here is my bike. It's a GT Nomad 7005. I got it for pretty much free, and spent about $100 overhauling it. It's aluminum, so it's heavy, but that's ok. I use it primarily for fun short rides (30~ miles or so a day). I must say, the new Vida FPS tires feel much nicer then the nearly bald things I used to have on it.



    Any idea how much this bike cost new? I'm just curious.

    Dawes Discovery 601 Hybrid (2001)

    My commuting mule. It has seen the wars over the last decade, but I've just given it a bit of an overhaul, including new wheels with 15mm rims.

    I love it - it makes my life possible.

    new hybrid build-in-progress. using 700x40 slicks, 50-34T compact double crankset w/ a 13-32 rear, it started life as a 90s diamondback taiwan-built steel hybrid.

    will be getting 45c black fenders for winter. I'm a 50-something 225 lb who wants to get back into riding trim, so this will be my bike-trail special for cruising around town.
