    A couple of sexy hybrids at the LBS

    I stopped by the shop today on the way home from work. A couple of newer bikes really caught my attention- two different styles of bikes that could both be considered hybrids, both of which are real eye-catchers (at least to me).

    First, the Marin Lombard. It's under their Street > Urban category on their site and they call it a road/cyclocross bike. I think it would be a great commuter for my 17 mile commute.



    The second can be found under the Marin Bridgeway FS, from their Steet > Metro category. Another rather beautiful bike.



    Although this one has a front suspension, there are other Bridgeway versions with fixed forks. A very refined looking bike.

    Both bikes were pretty affordable for what they were, too. I think I'm getting the itch for a new commuter (to which my wife would reply, "Down, boy!).
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I sound like a Marin shill, but here's the other one I've been lusting after for a while- the Muirwoods 29er

    I could go for a 29er in my size. Nice bikes. Maybe I'll sell a few and get one of those for a rider. Thanks for the thread!

    The Lombard looks hot,but I would really need to take it for an extended test ride before I would buy. Note that the specs say the fork is alloy;I've had some bad experiences with alloy forks raising cain with my carpel tunnel.
