They should inflate tires before photo-shoot. Other than that "build in" rack AND fender is a neat idea.

A hybrid because you can ride it or run along side of it.

I wish it was mine! Straight from Cannondale: Bad Boy 0 - RECREATION & URBAN - BIKES - 2014 It says the saddle is Cannondale Bad Boy Riveted Leather. Looks similar to my Origin 8 Classique Sport that I have on my Tempo.

Hey guys!

Here is my new toy. The frame is a 2013 Specialized Crux Pro Carbon Disc that I built up using some of the parts from my Secteur faltbar conversion.

It's pretty light at around 17.5 lbs.

Better photos to come in the next few days.

Welcome to BF, Dimqa!

That bike looks like the bangin' Escape. Yup! That's one of my favorites, too!

I also like Giant's Seek model!

However, my two best of all time, are the Jamis Coda and the BadBoy 9 from Cannondale!

Off Road Treking Bike

I built this frame in 1992 for "rough stuff" riding - off road use with road components. Lugged, heavy gage butted Reynolds 531 tubing with 700c wheels (not 29ers). It was set us to switch to cyclocross sewups and also drop bars.

I had Phil Wood make me some hubs with very little offset in the rear to prevent spoke breakage when off road. Also the stem was a special make from Salsa. The tires are 700c x 41 Specialized Nimbus.

How it looked when new in 1992.



Better picture of the Day-Glo florescent chartreuse paint.



Full sloping crown.



More pictures.







Several years ago I switched the TA Cyclotouriste cranks for an NOS 1987 Shimano Deore triple after ovalizing the second or third TA 26T chainring.





Bike rides and handles perfect on and off road.

My hybrids are a Jamis Allegro 1, a Surly Pacer and I am having an Origin8 cx700 built into an all terrain bike. [The Pacer may undergo another handlebar/stem adjustment.]
