Paired with a 20T cog on a Nexus 8, this bike would be geared all the way down to 20 gear-inches and up to 92 according to Sheldon's gear calculator.
Bulldogs2k - that's the 2012 Specialized Sirrus Limited model and it does have the same frame as the Roubaix and comes with a mostly Apex group set. I bought mine for $1680 at a yearned discount, so I am well pleased.
Anyone else notice the relative lack of Trek hybrids in this thread?
This is coming from a "Trek guy" who loves his 7.2. I also think Trek has some pretty spiffy and advanced looking road bikes and MTB's. But stock Trek hybrids are rather plain-Jane.
I would say Trek's are over talked about in the hybrid forum. :eek:
Real quick follow up on my posts about the Raleigh i2x8. The website is/was wrong -- spoke with Raleigh and the crank is definitely the FSA Metropolis. Phew!
Thanks all for the warm welcome :)
whats up with that tiny seat?
Edit...i can see now it is a coaster brake. The saddle is a Brooks so it shouldn't appear that small
I don't know, saddle looks small here, too. Weird.
Man I bet that thing weighs a ton.
who cares what it weighs? its a fashion bike. and its really pretty.
Cindy Crawford version
at least it doesn't have drop bars :p :D
I dont think drop bars are necessary for the hipster and fashionista crowd.
DiamondBack Interval Elite. Interesting how Tri Bars are standard.
Trek Crossrip Elite.
For the many Trek fans. Trek 7.7fx.
Here's my Trek 7.4FX. Just this past week I gave up on the stock saddle, as it was like sitting on a brick and really took away from the enjoyment of riding. I put on a Bontrager Commuting Gel saddle and it is perfect. After 20 or 25 minutes I don't even notice the saddle. It's fairly light and inexpensive ($35).
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 my 2012 7.2FX with Disc brakes. I really dig the matte black with red accents. I haven't changed anything yet just added rack and fenders. I really am clueless so ill be researching on what to add or change.
