    first visit to hybrids

    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.

    Welcome, It is about a month old now. The front brake cable looks a little taut. Nice mod though

    nice bike! im loving the handle bars. it looks like that bike is so comfortable to ride since you're so upright.

    Very nice! And welcome to the new Hybrid Forum. You didn't know it was here - because it wasn't here until very recently. Hope to see your contributions & ideas!
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

    Right on about the front brake cable.It works ok but a little longer will be coming soon.I got the bars off Amazon.They were only about $6.They do make a big difference when riding .

    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

    I believe the FX series bikes are aimed at a more fitness profile style of bikes,hence the lower handlebars, nincev had closely tranformed it to a 7000 series,for comfort reason may be?

    Nice colour. Satin Gray is sleek! Is that a butterfly hairclip on your helmet?

    I never noticed my helmet in the pic.The butterfly is actually a thing my wife stuck in the planter by the garage.I did raise the bars for comfort reasons.
