I like the elegant sort of classic look of the Marin Bridgeway.
Reminds me of the Union Blackline which also has a bit of a retro design.

Great find, giantcfr1.

More info: http://www.bikerumor.com/2012/10/11/...uy-in-america/

Like; possibly want!
Second thought: scratch that; I'd very likely buy this in a heartbeat if it becomes available in Canada.

I guess so but I was confused with the name Anyroad.
Throw a flat bar on it and it'll look like many of the recently marketed Hybrids. lol

I love the look of it too. I wish I had room for another bike. (>_<)

Sounds great. Can you post you project here too http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...makeover-plans ?

This thread you've posted in is for bikes you've seen.

Posts: 2,837


The bike that I built. Its been modded a bit since then. Basically an old style road bike frame running 21 speeds friction shifting. Retrofitted flat bars and shimano sis integrated brake/shifters (my favorite rugged and cheap option for commuting bikes). The v brake levers are close enough that they work the front single pivot caliper fine. I switched out to dual pivot on the back as it just wouldn't hold center. Brake pads are Shimano 105 as the original rubber pads were... total junk. Rides great, didn't cost much, and I built it. I'd rather mod a bike and ride it then buy it built up. No fun that way.

In photography circles (or perhaps just on photography forums), there is a 'problem' called GAS: gear acquisition syndrome. I, along with many other shooters, suffer terribly from it. Only known cure is the acquisition of that latest piece of gear you 'need'.

Until this thread I was blissfully unaware - and thus unafflicted with GAS in this arena - of all the incredible looking bikes out there. Perhaps I'd kept it that way to protect myself. In any event, I cannot unsee the Cannondale Bad Boy. And it is with a certainty that we typically reserve for only two other things in life that at some point next year, I will be owning (and hiding from my SO), said black beast. Of course, that Spot Acme - Gates belt running an Alfine 11 rear hub... Man, with a Patterson crank and a BLACK frame (and crank)... said Bad Boy might have to take a back seat. I'm kinda loving that.

A curse on this thread! (and keep the pictures coming...)

Hi Gravel,
How did you manage to put bar ends on your bike? I have a '12 7.4FX, and with the Isozone handle bars I can't see how it is possible.
Thanks and best regards

Hi Flan you need a bar end adapter kit if you check out this link it will help you out.
