    Red face

    I've had this KHS Urban-X commuter bike less then a month and am loving it. I ride it to work every other day and on local paved recreation trails. Last weekend I rode an abandoned railroad right of way trail, hard dirt, soft dirt, grass, weeds, loose dirt, dirt hills.. did fine on all of them. I was concerned about the 1.5" tires, but they did great. The Kendra Kwest tires are known for holding up against all sorts of road debree, even glass. The bike comes with fenders, rack, Kstand, chain guard, 26" wheels and 21 gears. It's tight, smooth and quite.

    I have a bag I bought on Amazon for only about $20, a cup holder from Target that I use with a one click to drink/seal thermos made by oxo Liquaseal for my morning coffe.

    A Mag 83 Lum flash light for $40 from Home Depot, fits a handle bar post mounted $10 Fenix 360 degree swivel mount from EliteLED with one of their very bright 5 LED back lights for $8 and they get me home safe at night with good visibility at medium speeds.

    Nice bike, I epecially like the fenders, did they come with the bike. Here is my new Diamondback. I want to add fenders and lights as soon as I figure out which ones I want.

    Yes, the Urban-X comes with fenders, rack, chain guard ring, Brooks knock off seat (not leather), CroMo frame, machined rims, etc. It's the best deal I have come across for a commuter bike.

    The cup holder.. got it at Targed for very little $ This morning I was rushing to get to work and going down a street that I thought I was familiar with all the bumps on. It was really sunny at 8 AM and I had forgotten to bring my RX sunglasses home from work so was wearing clear RX glasses and having a hard time seeing. I hit a big patched spot at about 30mph and it gave me a big jolt, enough to throw my beloved oxo thermos completely out of the cup holder and clanging down the street. I stopped and went back and retrieved it to find only some scratches to the stainless steel and some abrasions to the black plastic top where you drink. At work I was able to sand down the rough plastic scars and it was fine.

    These are all really good looking bikes, enjoying seeing what everyone has and any comments about them.

    I bought an insulated coffee mug from REI . The following morning I filled it with coffee and put it in my waterbottle cage. It fell out on a steep bumpy downhill and was ruined.

    It happened a while ago. I was just relating to Doane's tale of dropped coffee mug.

    I have a problem with throwing stuff out and that broken mug was around here for a while, but it seems I did throw it away.

    It would still hold coffee, but the outer part was busted, a rubber O-ring protuded from the wound. I threw it away because I have other plastic coffee mugs with lids. The insulation (trapped air or perhaps a vacuum) ruined, it was ugly and the inner part held less coffee than an uninsulated mug with the same exterior dimensions.

    Banged up but hot and doesn't leak.

    Hmmm... that sounds odd.. anyway.. Not to bad for bouncing down a paved street from about 30 mph! I sanded down the rough spots on the plastic and have been using it for several days.. still doesn't loose one drop when clicked close.

    This is what I have been riding this year. I am hoping to move to a cyclo-cross sometime in the next year or so. But this Trek has been very good to me so far..

    This is mine on a ride a couple of months ago with The Historian. Currently, its being gutted and parts are going to be used on my Raleigh Kodiak. I love the fit, but it really is a harsh ride.

    Here is mine that I just got..... It's a Marin Kentfield FS. I'll have to get all the goodies to put on it like a rack, and trunk and maybey some panniers. I don't know much about hybrids, but it seems to ride really nice. I'll have to get some better pics when it's in it's element.
