Why is that, is it a tyre issue? If so it's easy solved.

^^^ Yep, its all about the tire on wet pavement. Not going to change it, got a Crosstrail for the crap and slick roads and the Quick for the fast runs. Perfect set up.

Flash Photo of my Breezer

In the dark and in the day. Like the bike so much, I bought a smaller frame one for her. She had a mountain/comfort bike, but on this one she has really picked up her speed and enjoyment level.

2013 Crosstrail Elite Disc, returned the Quick SL 3. I rode it for half an hour and I only like bikes with a suspension fork.

I swapped out the stock 38 tires on the crosstrail for 32 size and really like the improved nimble feel and easier pickup in speed. Big visual difference.

Sadly I haven't changed anything on my hybrid for a long time. For the simple fact I love it as it is.

So have you ever loaded up your good camera in a hip bag, ridden 10 miles to take some photos only to discover the batteries were dead? And had to take a photo, complete with lens distortion, low resolution, and bad focus with your crappy camera phone ? Yeah, me neither...

2014 Specialized Vita Sport I've had for 6 weeks, back to cycling after 35 years.

yeah, it's giving me an incentive to upgrade my phone. The camera was never that great in it even when it was new 5 years ago. After seeing the photos friends take with their Nokias and I-Phones (and other ones, I'm sure) it starts to make sense. I always have my phone with me when cycling, and I could have a good camera-all in one. I was a bit frustrated that day after lugging that big camera around only to find dead batteries. I'm usually on top of those things (grin)

Hi, I'm new to the forum. Been inspired by all of you experienced bikers. Thanks!!
Anyway this is my hybrid, mainly used for commuting around the city (Singapore). It's a 2009 Felt QX75. Mostly stock components, except for the Conti Gatorskin front tyre, planning to upgrade the rear to the Gatorskin soon.

My older Blackberry smartphone takes passable and even decent pictures under the right conditions... my Canon A640 digital takes outstanding pictures and does not take up that much space, and is fully featured so I can set up for specific conditions.

Just bought a 2014 Trek 7.4 in the Sepia color. What do you think of the color?

My friend here in Kyoto had a Focus and 8 weeks ago he got "doored" and the frame was destroyed. 6 weeks ago he bought the replacement, and on it's maiden ride (the day after the purchase) he got hit by a truck. Second frame gone. He himself is very lucky to still be here.

I think it's been over a YEAR since i have posted here. Anyway, here is my DS 8.4 with new mods.
Crank Brothers:
Iodine Carbon Bar cut to 720mm
Cobalt 3 80mm Stem
CObalt 2 Seat Post
Iodine 2 29" wheels
Eggbeater 3 Pedals

Nashbar
Fr1 Saddle

Shimano
Deore 9spd Shifters/brakes/crank
Slx Front and Rear Derailer, 11-34 Cassette

Rockshox
Reba 80mm

Odi
ROgue Grips

Schwalbe
Knobby Nick Front

Maxxis
Ikon Rear

I have been on the dirt a lot as you can see. With the SLX front derailer, it allows me to run a 2.2" rear tire with no rubbing. Basically i can run XC tires in the rear all day. Thank goodness!




BTW, good to see giantcfr1 still here! How is Kyoto these days? Cheers! 'Z

Hey ZG, I love to see how your bike has evolved. Surprisingly, I too now have a Trek which I'm just starting off modifying. I guess I'm starting your journey a couple of years behind.

The Marlin is a great platform! My wife has a Mamba and she loves it!
