    Nothing fancy here. My old 1988 Trek 900 hybrid with Kenda Klondike studs on it. Not pretty, but it works.

    I'm thinking of adding a front basket to my old beast. If I can find any kind of basket about the right size I'd probably be able to make it work.

    Thank you very much. I figured out how to do the custom setting. The tires are marked to be inflated from 40-60 psi, so I inflated them to 50. I then sat on it as best I could here in the living room...

    Nothing wrong with a recycled bicycle. My own main ride is a 1988 Trek 900 hybrid that I liberated from a flooded basement before it went to the junkyard. I turned it into a great all-around bike.

    I had the same problem when I switched from road bikes to hybrids. And I too solved the problem by adding bar ends. The problem was simply not being able to change hand position.
