    Of the two Cannondale's - would you add more offroad friendly tires to the CX Carbon, or chage the fork on the CX1 to make it rigid?


    This still wins for me and why I'm thinking convert a Cyclocross to straight bar. Guerciotti Trekker.

    My wife has approved a $1,000 budget for my new bike. Looks like much of this thread is off limits but I have tons of options!

    I could only imagine the comments and questions I'd get at the group ride if I had one of those Lefty forks.

    Not as expensive as a lot of bikes here but I just got this earlier this year and absolutely love looking at it. Then again, I enjoy riding it more.

    A little more towards the MTBey side. This Bianchi Project 5 would be considered a rigid 29er nowadays but back in the early 1990s it was called a cross bike, which is the precursor to the hybrid bike.

    I've seen one of these sell with a full Campagnolo Euclid groupset for big dollars. Nice colors on this one.

    Looking at these bikes, one obvious observation is that outside state-side, there are so many more options for a hybrid. Why is that? When I was looking at upgrading from my Scott SUB 20 a year ago, there aren't that many options. It's even more limited if you're looking at something lighter (say, ~20lb) or CF frame. Trek had, for some reason, stopped making the FX7.9 for 2012. So, to fellow bikeforums devotees outside of US, are higher end hybrid more popular/common there? I know the mentality here, even at my LBS. When I mentioned I was looking at a higher end hybrid, the recommendation from the sales rep was "why don't you get a road bike with drop bar?" I ended up with a Sirrus Limited which is a great bike but I wish I had this thread as a reference!

    So this is the bike you bought. It fits well with all the other bikes here.



    Most of these bikes are not available here in Australia either but there's to much talk here about bikes like Trek's so I'm having some fun showing what is out there, some of the prices really out there too.
    But like I said earlier if someone really wants something it can be got for a price. I've been looking for the higher end bikes to show but there mostly all available in cheaper versions.
    I think in Europe most people go mostly for the everyday round town type of bikes and probably rely more on there bike for everyday transport because of fuel prices rather than for recreation so that might be why they have more hybrids to choose from.

    would love a CF bike, but man there's so many other more important things that I would need to put $2K towards.

    Yes, that's what I got but a 2012 model. What you shown is the 2013 version which is available only in September.
