Hi!! From Virginia with pics of my "hybrid"

actually i hate that label, sounds so wimpy...like a Prius... but whatever. Heres my almost daily ride... 489 miles in Oct.

I modified the stock bike with adjustable stem, old mountain bike handlebar (freebie), bar ends, clip in pedals, rack and foam grip set off ebay (with extra added padding)...10 bucks and super comfy, even though they look dorky i suppose... Helps with my carpal tunnel.

The bike itself is a scratch n dent off ebay (had a few chips)... but otherwise new.

I try to ride 15 to 25 miles most days of the week and longer rides on the weekend when possible, I've been "hardcore" about my biking for about 4 months and love to ride... lost 20 lbs so far too =)

Anyway, glad to find this forum and hope to spend alot of time here and learn much!!

Andy C.

Welcome Andy. Nice looking bike.
Do you wear padded cycling gloves? If not, give them a try. You may be able to get rid of the dorky foam.

YES!! Thats the sad part, i DO wear nice gel padded gloves too!! so, I have the gloves, raised handlebars, AND double foam... I know it looks bad, but at least i can ride without pain for the most part, so... i'm happy =)

Thanks for the welcome!!
