looks like internal cable routing is a must have feature in a modern hybrid bike... Love it

is there any other carbon hybrid bike that features internal cable routing?
I hope trek release carbon hybrid bike that based on the trek new madone series frame... the shape of that frame is beautiful..

The Budnitz No. 3 with an Alfine 11 really caught my eye until I read the BikeRumor full review of their experience and the creaking bottom bracket. My next bike will need a compliant steel frame and fork, disc brakes, IGH, and belt drive with minimal to no logos and text on the frame and wheelset. As picky a request as this is, I may have to stick with my Jamis Coda for a long, long time.

Not to my knowledge. I was browsing at road bikes either on Giants or Treks site and a higher end road bike also had the internal cable routing. THis might be a common feature found on all bikes in the future. Who knows.

The Cannondale Quick Carbons have internal routing. I really like the Carbon 1 and Carbon 2, but then again, I am partial to Cannondale flat bars. Here is a link:

Internal cables aren't so new. I even know steel bikes with it. If you have a look at the OLD Klein bikes they had them. I heard (but I don't know if it's true) that it was TREK who actually changed the internal to external on them when they took the company. It really annoys me that TREK seems to take over production of other US manufacturers (Lemond, Klein, Fisher) then cease production. Sorry about the rant.

The hybrid category has evolved to be almost meaningless anymore, although a lot of different bikes are still called hybrids. Steel framed, 1990's hybrids define the category for me.

Here is one for you.Bought in 93.Avanti Illusion.Cx400 groupset.

Here is my steel frame hybrid. Best looking hybrid I've seen..... in my garage. There are some nice bikes on here that make me envious.

For off the shelf good looks I think BMC holds the title. Just too expensive for me. I spent less and will use the extra money to trick out my Trek.

I like "all rounder".



Just picked up a late 1990-ish BRC Ricochet which is contemporary to your Trek Multi Track.

Nice looking frame and paint. Could use a little color matching in the components, either silver or black, take your pick. I vote for silver with maybe a little polishing too!

I love mine more for the way it fits me like a glove than anything else, but after I decided I didn't care WHAT it looked like, I'm actually quite happy with the looks. In particular, I think the higher stem rise gives it a less "painful to ride" look. I liked the 2013 black/red version too, but I think I'm now addicted to the black/green. I'll get a better pic but for now, since I haven't really done anything to it anyway, here's the site photo.....

This bike shop it's in front of is rather unique. It has zero signage at the front advertising, the shop phone number is not listed, all bikes are order made, opening hours are from 1pm to 8pm, and closed on any day divisable by 5. Three stories high...first floors frame samples, second floor clothes (all casual cycling wear, no so-called kits) Third floor free hot Japanese tea. No twitter, no facebook pages, but there is a beautifully written blog by the owner.

Spotted this BMC 29er at the Tour Down Under bike expo today. Fantastic setup for many uses. I would like a setup like this for unsupported wilderness camping and exploration.

This caught my eye from a distance, thought it was some type of flat bar conversion to a Cyclocross race bike then saw the electric motor in the wheel. I was still impressed by what I saw.
