    Lots of nice bikes in here. Here are my current bikes. I plan on keeping these ones for a long time.

    Nice bikes!
    The angles of the brakes and shifters seems very inclined but if that feels good to you it's okay

    That is weird, you are referring to my mountain bike, the Felt right? I never noticed that they felt funny, but looking at the picture I see what you mean.

    I think he's referring to your hybrid. The levers on the Felt appear to have less incline as they should. The brake levers should be in line with your forearms. Your position is different on each of your bikes.

    Gotcha, I probably did that when I put on my new grips. I have done a few short rides since and I didn't notice it feeling funny. I will have to adjust them though as suggested and see if they feel better.

    They don't look that different from how I put my levers on flat-bar bikes. I put them where my fingers go without having to kink my wrists back; you don't brake with your knuckles, do ya?

    On top of that, I tend to slide the shift levers inboard, too, so that I don't bump them with the backs of my thumbs. It only takes half an inch or so, but it's just enough to get them out of the way, and they're still close enough for my fingers & thumbs to operate.

    As Adel suggests, it's largely a matter of personal preference. I think when in need of hard breaking, as Barracks suggests, having your wrist kinked isn't desirable. Barracks sets his brake levers closer to vertical compared to the average hybrid rider, but he also has his handlebars lower than average relative to his saddle height. You like high bars, and your brake levers should probably be at least a little higher.

    Yes, I agree you maybe put your handlebar back slightly wrong after you installed the new grips.

    I've met some hardcore riders who have unconventional setups. In the end it's up to you! My hybrid is not normal.

    Yeah, I simply set mine according to where my hands are the most comfortable. If I want to, I can ride with my fingertips on the brake levers the whole time without using an uncomfortable kink in my wrists. My MTB levers are set up the same way, too, just a hair below 45 degrees from horizontal. With all the parts that can be easily moved around, I'd rather adjust the bike to fit me, not adjust myself to fit the bike.

    Abus UGH 02, bought from Wiggle in the UK (I couldn't source them locally). Very slick, and easy to use.

    A rack is going on it soon, followed by fenders. I'm trying to decide between Nitto Albatross and Mustache bars to replace the original bars on this bike.

    And here's a question for y'all. Am I the only person riding a GT Arette on this forum? This is a great riding bike, extremely comfortable and smooth as glass to ride but GT quit making them and I've not seen another mention of them anywhere on this forum. Is there something wrong with this bike that I'm not aware of?
    Hey I just picked up an Arette at a yard sale yesterday. I think they were only in production a few years, that's why there's not much about them. Mine is bright yellow and missing a stem. Definitely a "project bike".

    In my mind, anything made by the "old" GT company is a good bike...
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

    It's a hybrid, but it's also my commuter, my touring bike and my all-around primary form of transportation. You can't see the model because I took a crappy pic, but it's a Raleigh C500.

    I like the tourer, John! I want to do some of that.

    My bike with new derailleur cable and housing loop. Thanks Eric at REI for dialing in my bike. If I'd lubed that cable, it would have been fine I guess, but I didn't and it got a little bit oxidized. I installed an old Jandd Mountaineering Expedition rear rack and added some reflective stickers. In other words no changes since last time.

    The apartment building painting is visible from the sidewalk, but as you can see it doesn't look like much from there. I don't think you can see it from the street. You need to be on foot or wandering to find to this place. A wonderful discovery which I wouldn't have made if I wasn't on my bike and with my camera. Never go anywhere without both!

    Some pictures from further down the alley.

    Wonderful bike. I'd love to put clipless pedals on mine but I'd slip arse over walking around all day on the cleats. I could go MTB but I go through normal walking shoes like they're out of fashion and I'm afraid I'd do the same with the MTB shoes. ( ; . ; )
