Here is a short Video from today. , Hybrids are the best, which one is a Hybrid ?
An upright cycling citizen
A woman on a bridge
dangerousness, cars passing at 65 MPH, 20 MPH over the speed limit.........Think God for the new lights, we were riding after dark..They have NO respect
for riders here..We are just another obstacle in the road ! I think the Kendra Kwicks are right for my riding style. My video of them is more accurate than the
pictures on the web, slicks in the middle, and knobs on the side for off road. If I did a lot of Urban riding they might not be as good, could feel the knobs on tight
turns, but our roads are pretty straight. I wished we lived in a bike friendly community, ( MY DREAM ), but here, it is four wheelers and guns.. I understood your
debate on the other thread..Biking is your LIFE...Just felt it was not the right time reply.. I wish you the best my friend..Richard
I dio like the city, but if I had lots of money, I'd be in the mountains out west. You're right about the city riding. I think it's safer than rural or suburban riding. A big part of it is the density of bicycles in cities, which in USA has changed alot in recent years. Regular drivers in cities now are expecting to see bikes, tourists maybe not so much. Many hazards in the city, but it must be much safer than the highways you ride. Be careful!
I posted a few pictures today in a thread in the Northeast forum. http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...traffic/page23
"Woman on bridge"...looks like a retro style commercial. Really cool!
the rider makes the bike - steel club member 198
Road bike conversion
You guys live in biking heaven, if I painted my bike CAMO , and installed a gun rack, I might fit in here ! And my belly keep me from seeing my feet.. ( LOL ) Richard

Rainy day rider
Would you recommend it for city riding and short trail riding?
Great pics montiff!
Another kind of Hybrid. Fat tires and flared drops.
Modified Raleigh C40
Back to work
George has lots of nice bikes. He rode his hybridized carbon Scantante today.
[Pardon my messy shelves.] Above is my old bike from Wal-Mart. I bought it summer 2010 and I've put somewhere around 800 miles on it. Its heavy and a bit clunky but it got the job done well enough for $80. Its on Craigslist now looking for a new home.
This is my current bike. Got it a couple weeks ago as a birthday gift from my parents. 2010 Trek 7.5 from Maplewood Cycle in St Louis. Rides great! The best part is how easy it is to load on to my bike carrier. I added a Princeton EOS light for low-speed trail riding and a cycle computer. Next item on my list is GPS.
