Welcome, nice looking bike. Very interesting drivetrain setup, haven't had the chance to read up on it yet but will do.

Thanks so much for the welcome!

Could be something laying on the ground that looks like it's part of the pedal. My guess is Look Keo or Shimano SPD-SL.

Wow, that's an neat crankset! For those wondering, the FSA Metropolis is an internally geared crankset. The gear is 28, but the internal gearing will yield a 42 equivalent.

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.

jbchybridrider 09-19-12 08:51 PM

I would say Trek's are over talked about in the hybrid forum. :eek:

Neat, I thought it looked like the Roubaix. I like it!

The new 7.7 FX is pretty spiffy looking, but it's really a flat bar road bike and not a hybrid.

Best looking hybrid you have seen
 
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 :)

I'd say the company which created the picture just didn't adjust the graphics to the correct size. It also appears that they forgot the levers etc unless it's a coaster brake(^-^)v

Edit...i can see now it is a coaster brake. The saddle is a Brooks so it shouldn't appear that small

PatrickGSR94 09-21-12 07:41 AM

I don't know, saddle looks small here, too. Weird.

northernlights 09-21-12 10:46 AM

at least it doesn't have drop bars :p :D

northernlights 09-21-12 05:11 PM

I dont think drop bars are necessary for the hipster and fashionista crowd.

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).

THIS is a hybrid! A true mixture of road and mountain bike with seat-tube angle, wheels and bottom bracket height coming from road bikes and head-tube angle, handlebars, tubing and drivetrain coming from mountain bikes. Tire width and chainstays are right in between road and mountain bikes.

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.
