    That looks to be a 1995 frame with a lot of different parts. per bikepedia, stock was Shimano STX derailleurs and index shifters. and brakes and crankset.

    sounds like something is funky with your shifting... those appear to be friction thumb shifters? or are they index shifters? either way, each gear step should be an equal amount of cable, which is should be an equal amount of rotation of the barrel of the shifter.

    edit: (just saw your 2nd post) if you're looking for better friction shifters, the early/mid 80s Suntour friction shifters were excellent.

    actually, looking at your H-bars, using bar end shifters would be ideal. putting them on the top part of the H means you can't ride up there, which is the whole point of HAVING H-bars.

    the other option would be putting the brakes and shifters on the crossbars

    These are some of the nicest shifters ever made... will be fitting a set to a bike I am building right now.

    Yup, I found a set to put on the road oriented hybrid I built up from scratch. my old '83 stumpjumper has them too, as original equipment.

    I think I had a set similar to those on a Schwinn MTB I flipped. They were pretty nice.

    The previous setup I had with the H-Bar had Shimano SL MT-32 shifters I took off an old Huffy mounted in the same place. They shifted fine, and the cable ran right along the bar, so I could still use the upper part of the bar. I don't get why these shifters are acting so weird.

    2010 Gary Fisher Utopia

    I got the bike last exactly one week ago. I've only got about 25 or so miles on it so far but it's by far the best bike I've had.

    In the basement, where I keep it:


    By my garage before my first ride with it:


    By my Jeep after some wheeling with the Jeep, still before my first ride on the Utopia:

    Nice bike! It's like a two-wheeled stealth fighter; I'm digging the flat black paint job.

    Thanks. That's why I got the 2010. The 2011 is black and white. It doesn't look nearly as nice.

    It has been absolutely gorgeous and this is my favourite season... temps have in the high teens and low 20's with lots of sun, endless blue skies, and smell of fallen leaves is in the air.

    A few more views...

    It's probably raining. There's another guy, possibly a woman, in the background with an umbrella as well.

    The rain was pretty light yesterday. This picture was taken around the same time. She looks happy here but was grimacing from the rain in her face before she saw me taking pictures of her. I have another of her in better focus with an even bigger smile, but I posted this one because of the White House and umbrellas in the background. Riding one of DC's new bikeshare bikes.

    Today we had heavier rain.

    They are all real life photos shot from the seat of my bike. More here, a thread I started over a year ago and can't quit. http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...street-traffic

    I redid my Trek 8000zx to make it more streetable.
    Swapped the wheelset for a lighter narrower set.
    Went from the 2.5" slicks to 1.75" semi tread.
    Got rid of the disc and went back to v-brakes.
    Swapped out the MTB cassette for a road one.
    Swap suspension seatpost to a carbon one.

    Lost almost 10lbs in the changeover, makes it a much better ride on the road and still has enough for light trail work.
