Very snappy looking bike. What's original on yours? frame / fork, brake calipers, cranks and front chain rings and seat clamp?

Mine: frame / fork, wheel set, stem, cranks and chainrings, shifters, front and rear deraileurs. The rest broke.

The saddle is Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow.
You know what is the usual price but i picked it in LBS from the box, newer used but with the sticker - "tester", for $50.

It is a good saddle but personally I would never pay more than $75. Simply because it is not much better (more comfortable or lighter) than Nashbar R2 (velo/Skye), which is on sale now for 24.99.
Looks cool though.
I needed a week or so to break it in. First I tried for couple of rides and put back my nashbar saddle. Then i started to think "what the heck ..Everybody saying that this is a good one..Let me try it again". And it finally worked.

What is left from original - frame, fork, wheels (front wheel on the picture is just a temp. replacement).
Everything else was replaced.
105 rear der./cassette.
Deore front der and crankset.
Avid sd 5 brakes.
LX levers and shifters
Ritchey Pro stem/seatpost
Ritchey Comp handlebar...

Probably will change the wheels to decent roadies... may be not.

Not a hybrid, nor is it mine. As a thank you for letting me use his bike, I asked my friend if he wanted new bar tape. He said yes. So I asked him what color he wanted. He said hot pink. I said no, really what color? He said he actually wanted hot pink. I think hot pink tape on his olive green frame would look awful. Luckily, when I got to the shop, they only had white, black, and yellow. I told him this and he chose yellow. His old tape was really dirty white cork.

How did I do in wrapping it?



Halfway through the tape install:

Hey crazy Aussie... You're missing a reflective dot on the drive side of your front wheel between the 7th and 8th spoke to the left of the valve. Just sayin' .

I know where you're coming from. Because I polish the wheels (advantage of discs) Often the polish creates a slippery surface and I have to wait until it wears a little before I replace.

Beautiful pic and great looking bike. My guess there'll be more changes in 3 months as I think you have caught the bug many of us have.

The few times I've had my bike in Chicago, I haven't taken any pics. Seeing cool pics like that makes me wish I did stop to take a few pics. Oh well. Maybe next time.

I'm at this location 2-3 times a week on my 20 mile round trip ride. If you're in town, you're welcomed to join for a ride/photoshoot

I'll send you a PM before I head up to the city again. If you're ever wandering the trails in NW Indiana, let me know. There aren't too many scenic areas until you get into Porter county... That'd be quite the trek for you; I'm assuming you live in the city.

Cool

Managed to get my 2012 Coda Sport back home just before the HEAVY RAIN came pouring down! Got most of my accessories on, here's the proof!

ColombianGT, that is a nice looking bike. And I'm always a fan of bike pics with the Skyline in the background!

Do you live in the city and commute?

A CX bike is a hybrid in its own sense of the term.

Obligatory picture:



Just gave my friend back his CX bike.

I have $250 right now that I can spend on a bike. For my birthday, my parents are going to give me some more money to put towards a bike. I found a Felt F90 on craigslist in my size (I think it's my size... Size and fit differs between manufacturers) for $450 and I offered him $350. I'll see if my parents will give me my birthday present early. If not, then I just wasted a couple minutes of the seller's time.

I always use a cellphone camera. I don't own any other. They are ok.

I just love the bad boy bikes, I bought the 2010 version last year when the LBS had them on sale for $950, I changed the seatpost to Cannondale Carbon, Fizik saddle, and speedplay pedal, about 3 weeks ago, the LBS had another blow out sale, I got the 2011 version for $925, they both M, but the 2011 model feels smaller, the top tube is 1 cm shorter, the wheelbase is also 1 cm shorter, and headtube is 1 cm taller, I installed a FSA setback seatpost, the 2011 model is more like a mountain bike, the 2010 model is more like a road bike.
