Hello from Kansas City!

I am a 6’ 5” 53 year old that occasionally rides a 63cm Felt F80. I am planning to buy a second bike that can be used for more casual outings. Riding more often would also help me lose those last 20 lbs.

While surfing the internet, I came across the Bike Forums web site. Since I am fairly active on photography forums (my other hobby) I thought it would be good to gain some collective wisdom, so I joined the bike forum community.

I looked at a couple hybrids this weekend and would like a large steel frame bike with disc brakes, internal gear hub, and Big Apple 28" X 2.3" tires. I would like to purchase a hybrid bike before the end of the year. That will give me time to sell unused items on craigslist, etc. to help fund the purchase. I spent $800 on the F80 back in 2004 and already know the components for the hybrid are adding up higher than that amount.

Welcome to Bike Forums!

Have you visited the Hybrid forum yet? They can give you all sorts of advice for your bike search.

You might also want to pop into the Foo forum, we have a monthly photography contest there.

I have read threads in several bike forums including the hybrid forum, but I was not quite sure where to post my question. I moved my question to the hybrid forum:
