    I don't think I would use that swept out option. If I were doing long distance, I would rather have aero bars which can be installed/removed easily and keep my flatbar with bar ends--plenty of hand...

    Definitely the Giant! Buy the most you can afford. If it's in your budget, go for it! I recently spent some $$ converting my 8 speed to 9. I just don't like big jumps in gearing. Moreover,...

    Very comparable bikes. So I'd go for the Diamond for less coin.

    I bought an Alivio sl-m410 right shifter for $15 on ebay a few months ago. I would check there.

    Pretty interesting. Google pics really helped seeing these in action. Noticed some put one brake lever on the flat bar and one on the drop bar. I would think you would have to cut your flatbar to...

    A lot of performance hybrids use mostly road components. But you're right, people like to upgrade and if DIY, the parts aren't much more expensive.

    Thanks for the weights. I think anything 20lb or less is pretty legit. What may differentiate a good from a great CF bike may be the weight. I think much below 20lb is hard to come by without...

    Just curious, but what does an RX composite weigh bone stock?

    Problem with that is both these bike are high end and almost never in stock with a dealer. Usually you order it in.

    That said, they are more or less equivalent and I think you would be happy with...

    More than likely, those are screw holes. Not sure why they are painted over though but I would bet the threads still work.

    I don't commute with the bike---only for leisure. That means I don't bike when it's raining out. With that said, disc brakes don't offer me anything. low end disc brakes suck, let's be honest. If...

    Very well put together bike. I think major components are on point leaving personalization to the seat/pedals/grip. For the money... WOW.

    I would definitely go for the Jamis. Carbon fork is the main attraction.

    Even hybrids cannot be all things. You have to decide what features are important to you. Hybrids span the range from MTB to road bike to comfort bike.

    Sounds like a good deal to me! Good luck with that although I think you're crazy. However, the longer you keep it and don't use it, the more it depreciates.

    I just hope you get it back to near stock form. That stem and seat post make it look utterly ridiculous.

    You did great! Way to check out the bike and it's history. Heck for $900, I'd buy the bike even though I don't need it.

    For used, a year or two old, I'd pay about 60% MSRP. For anything carbon, make sure you check the bike out well for cracks. Warranties are not usually transferrable.

    Doubt they are all similarly priced but the Sirrus Pro Disc looks to be outfitted very smartly. In particular, any bike that puts high end shifters like the Shimano R780 (Ultegra) when they could...

    I love the Trek 7.6FX. Not sure what kind of deal you can get on it though--seems to be out of your budget? It does have pretty narrow tires as it is set up like a road bike. The Sirrus is setup...
