    Is this the smoothest hybrid or what..:)..?

    Smooth riding all steel Coda Sport coupled with a suspension seat post equals a plush ride I have never experienced before. The suspension seatpost adjustment screw had a tendency to wander a bit - I welded a hex key to it and locked it at my favorite stiffness level with a black zip tie. Works perfectly! The bike handles pot holes, gravel and dirt amazingly well.

    I'm fairly certain my old Comp and Elite w/CF forks rode smoother. And having owned two Codas,and having carpel tunnel issues,I can also say that my Dew Deluxe w/steel fork,alloy frame,and 38mm tires rides even smoother. Then there was that all-steel Marin Muirwoods I test rode,and my Pt Reyes w/2" wide tires.....

    Glad it's working for you. Do you really like your saddle at that angle? YMMV,but I'd run it much flatter.

    I gotta say, I'm also intrigued by your saddle angle.
    You can have my Disc Brakes, when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

    I am all for whatever keeps you on the bike... However, I am also full of opinions.

    Nice looking bike!

    For any bumps you hit that the seat post suspension helps with, you will potentially maintain control better, and save your butt even more if you stand and use your legs over the rough patches.
