    Heh heh ... you need to ask in the right (sub) forum (i.e. the one known here by the derisive name "Hybrid"). Fortunately, some of us flat-bar types (or is it flat-earthers?) lurk around here as well...

    I completely agree, fwiw. There's no end of (variations on) 'flat bars' available these days; everything from simply adding bar ends (with or without changing grips) to the various 'alt' bars MRT2...

    Seems a pretty straightforward decision to me: select the bar style you prefer (some form of either drop bars or flat bars) and buy accordingly.
    Any of the bikes you mention will serve you...

    For "my first bicycle helmet" I would recommend something like this, combining urban style with good protection:

    @Lopek,

    Yes ... re. time, see my post above. Re. distance ... well, I think so. During our cycling season (Aprilish through November/Decemberish) I routinely do a 50+ mile ride at least once a...

    Fair enough, but really this amounts to demonstrating (yet again) that everyone's preferences are different. My experience has been quite different: when I resumed cycling (on and off road) in 2002,...

    The frame geometry is identical; there is no change. The 2015 does have a new frame, with slightly different construction details -- notably, the dropped seatstays, and the "D-Fuse" seatpost. The...

    Uuuummm ... because they (flat mounts) are laterally stiffer and more compliant vertically? I'm sure there is some good reason lurking out there; not to worry, the marketing people (for [insert name...

    OP, that's a very good price on a very good bike -- assuming the dealer has stock in your size. That would be my only caution: it's not a good deal if the bike is too small/large for you.

    Beat me to it! I use the stock one on my Sirrus; have another on my mtb. The only observation I would make is that the Specialized 'set' stems are not really intended to be used as an adjustable stem...

    Heh heh ... seems to be an outbreak of this sort of thing on here lately, giantcfr1! Another lousy winter here in N.A. -- probably explains most of it. Poor old "Hybrid" sub-forum. Bike is looking...

    Quick clarification: Conti counts tpi by adding up the three plies; the GP4000s (great tires by the way) actually use a 110 tpi (per layer) casing material. That's still high-end high tpi (for a...
