    My hybrid isn't a flat bar road bike. It has thicker tires, fenders, a rack, big trunk bag and panniers. A carbon fiber frame might shave a few pounds off, but that would be negligible compare to...

    You're right, I've never ridden a top flight performance hybrid.

    But just that phrase sounds like an oxymoron. I ride my road bike when I need to go fast. I ride my hybrid when I need to go on...

    Don't worry about it. Go for a fun ride. Keep it short. Add distance and speed gradually. I started out thinking a 10 mile trip was unthinkable. I was tired after one mile. By keeping it fun,...

    Excellent choice. I bought a 2014 last September and have put over 3,000 miles on it. It's a great bike for getting around town. I'm still in love with the shifters.

    Great report. My ride was very similar, except I was on the Saint Arnold brewery team, so we had a whole lot of beer.

    I was amazed at how well organized the ride is.

    I started riding about 15...

    That forecast looks perfect.

    I had to drop off my bags at Saint Arnold Brewery yesterday, so it's too late to worry about what to pack. I forgot sunscreen. I bet I can bum some Sunday morning.

    Yeah, I was surprised by that. It is pretty torn up, but not in the places where my hands go. New tape will be nice. Sigh.
