I don't want a road-bike!

I already have one.

Nice bikes! I think 007 is winning, in case anyone's keeping score. Haha, just kidding, but that Trek is trick.
Two open beers, Timmy? Did you forget where you had left the first one? :)

Of course now I'm thinking they should have been Treks after seeing everyone else:D:D:eek:

Drop bars! Tourist!

Sixty Fiver 08-12-09 03:31 PM

terra - Thanks for ruining the Trekfest... seriously.

How is the new bike running ?

(I'll be down at EBC tonight if you guys wanna tweak the bikes.)

wunderkind 08-12-09 03:33 PM

I don't get it. Some of the bikes look like MTBs with slicks on. If that's the case, then mine can be a hybrid too?

Radagast the Beige-and-Black is a comfort hybrid. Can I play, too?

Flat bars are good for riding around the block and for shorter trips... when you spend 6-8 hours in the saddle you will want more hand positions.

Last Monday I did 100 km into a stiff headwind and still averaged 25 kmh... I came off the bike feeling great and could not have done that without the extra hand positions drop bars provide.

Several of my mtb's have road tyres, touring geometry, and drop bars and by definition are also hybrids since they utilize multiple technologies.

From a marketing standpoint the term "hybrid" has a far narrower definition and most people associate hybrid with the types of bikes that have already been posted here.

Hybrids ride on 700C tires,some are slicks and some have threads.

Wheel size is not a determining factor as many hybrids run 26 inch wheels... especially those described as being comfort bikes.

You'll work up to it. Keep trying. You aren't a hybrid rider yet, but I appreciate your effort.

Absolutely. Hybrids are flat bar road bikes and skinny tire mountain bikes. Even drop bars are allowed if the wheels are 26in.

Let me skew the demographic here...

My vintage Kuwahara mtb with road bars, road levers, road tyres, and a fixed drive.

That's more like it. Drop bar fixed mtb ftw.

Really ?

If only to illustrate that the definition of a hybrid encompasses a very wide range of bikes...

65'er - Trek isn't calling the carboniferous 7.9 FX a Hybrid anymore. They finally figured it out: Their warranty would drown 'em in debt when people went off-roading on the carbon 7.9.

The 7.9 FX is now a road-bike.

Wait a Boll-Weevil second - which Trek is that??
