I have kind of hybridized my HardRock MTB. Skinny tires, drop bar ends. I do wish the front fork locked out. I use it as my recreational ride and commuter (with added rear rack and bag, lights, etc).

'05 Giant Cypress with sprung brooks and cane creek bar ends.

The Novara Randonee is a little bit of a hybrid. Moustash bar instead of the drops. Also, a brooks b-17. It is not a comfort bike except on really smooth ashphalt

It slices, it dices.... it blurs the line between a road bike and a mountain bike....

My Trek 520. in the spirit of Jackie Phelan & Charlie Cunningham's Cunningham Racers of the 1980's.

Gary Fisher calls this a hybrid. I call it the bike that got me back into cycling again after 20 years.
When you talk about "smiles per mile", this baby has delivered.



First thing I did was to replace the stock knobbies with a set of Armadillos

It must be environmentally friendly, after all, it is a green car.

Got this bike several years ago from a thrift store. The previous owner added slicks and reflective tape. I recently (about a week ago) added rack, crate, and reflectors. It's in need of some serious cleaning around the drivetrain, though I recently got the chemicals to do this.. But even that won't fix the worn chain/cassette :/



I know this bike was built somewhere between 1989 and 1994, just going by the derailleurs/shifters:

My Raleigh Passage 4.5. Bought it last February. I've added the saddlebags, bottle holder, Road Morph pump, and a $10 Walmart computer. Been a good bike so far. Far smoother and much lighter than my Trek 820.
