why not just ride on it a bunch and see if you even like this bike?

I'm sure I'll like it fine, I messed around on it on the goofy trainer thing a time or two. Be great to have a second urban assault bike for commuting, seriously needs fenders though, it is an Alberta import, guess it doesn't rain there lol.

my hybrids ...

ok, here are the *final* versions of my two hybrids, the result of more than a year of component bargain hunting at LBS'sesses and online stores

If my current career plans don't work out, I'll open a bike shop This hobby is very addictive, once you have only *one* spare component, your mind starts working out what kind of bike it could be used for ...

cheers, flaxx

Those bikes are hot, but I'm not sure about a red seat on a green bike, I guess it can look like christmas, eh?

it may be green but it's not hunter/fern green - it's teenage mutant ninja turtle 'ooze' green. that with a red seat, to me, does not look chrimassy...

I'm guilty to say that i've only ridden treks. for me, the reason why i stuck to trek:

like 15-20 years ago, when i had a road bike, i bought a ross (for the price) but i had been looking at treks for their known reliability and quality. fast fwd to now - there are 20x more bike companies now than before and i am not familiar with any of them.

it's sorta like brand loyalty for me - although i've never owned a trek bike before but i know they're good bikes. all it took this time around to test ride a trek 7.2 fx for a few minutes to know that trek was the way to go for me. i didnt research other companies simply because i did not want to spend the extra time. i went with what's familiar and has a good history.


i also have a habit of recommending trek a lot bc of the experience i've had with two bikes (fx 7.2 and a 7.7 ).... i hope none of my recommendations come across as discounting other companies because i have absolutely no experience with other bike companies.

I test rode anything I could get my hands on. When I first started riding, I had no idea what Specialized was. All I knew were Trek & Haro from my childhood. But from a little research (thanks to BF.net), I started seeing that other brands have reputations & histories of their own.

It's cool that you're brand loyal, but I think that's just a disadvantage as you could possibly shut a door without even peeking in.

Hopefully, you're not a lazy rider like you are a lazy researcher

Ride safe. I'll see you on the road.
That was pretty snotty. Trek makes good enough bikes, why criticize.

It was snotty, and the lazy comment was just plain rude and ignorant.

Maybe not everyone needs to be like you? Maybe not everyone wants to be like you?

Who are you to criticize anyone's motives or reasons for their purchases?

Seems to me that Sh00k is quite pleased with his bike -- who are you to rain on his parade?

There sure seems to be a lot of self-righteous attitudes since a couple of people started posting here in the past few days.

Nice that you didn't acknowledge my comment about raining on Sh00k's parade -- only goes to confirm my next sentence.

Who are you to judge me for judging someone else?
I'm not judging you, just pointing out that you're arrogant, rude, and ignorant.

Nice that you try to derail the thread when you can't justify your earlier comments.

Don't have a cat bike guardian, I have a dog bike guardian. Note the freshly baked cookies on top of the oven, eh?

I'm starting a new trend, bikes in front of stoves.

Looks like a well equipped cycle. I like the peace sign decals too.

Your guardian looks guilty. Some cookies have gone missing....follow the crumbs.

It does look great! It has actual wheels with spokes! Not a radial fiasco up front with 18, or a 2X 24-spoke mess in back. Actual full-count spokes!

It's nice to see at least one company hasn't cut costs - starting with the wheels.

The BMC is ultra high tech. Are you using SRAM derailleurs? Nice job

Luddit; well no, just some artistic/futuristic shape. The bike is alright - I┤m a C&V rider and the "newish" 2002 Crescent helps me through the winter!

Ditch the BF<g> I'll be there in... how many days will it take me to peddle from NYC to Vancouver? Some cookies and some love from the guiardian would suit me just fine!

Oh wait... I did that once, only there was a big motor between my 2 wheels. Most of Saskatchewan had terrible side winds, even under some significant power, had to ride almost 45║ to the north wind.

Never mind!
