I didn't know there was a hybrid forum.I mostly hang out at c&v,over 50,and clydsdale forums.this is a pic. of my trek 7.5 fx.i changed the bars because the flat bars made my hands tied after so many miles.The Tiagra and Deore components linked to road bike tires make it a pretty good bike for fun and good speed on paved roads.
Unless that picture is very deceptive, either your legs are about a foot long or that saddle may be MUCH too low. Beside making pedaling unnecessarily tiring this is also likely to lead to a blown knee. See eg http://www.sheldonbrown.com/saddles.html
