I can't believe how long it is taking Specialized to deliver a "2019" spec bike that should have been available by August 2018, if past years are anything to go by.


Lucky for them that the bike you are after doesn't have many natural competitors.

Cheers! That really is a lovely bike. Looks like the 'purple' tint one; unfortunately, we can't get that variant here in Canada, so it's gloss black for me. Oh well.

I purchased the FX 3 Disc in Jan, got four short rides then the weather became too cold for the latter half of the month. Feb was much better I decided I need a wider tire on the stock wheels. Ended up replacing with Bontrager LT2 38's tubeless and my goal was to start riding some trails. Liking it so far.

Hi! Nice bike! I just bought this bike too but don't have it yet, is in special order............ How much clearance do you have in the fork now that you have 38mm tires? do you think the Bontrager NCS Fenders will still fit with 38mm tires?

It states on trek's website that with the NCS fenders and Bontrager wheels 35mm is max. 38mm is max w/o fenders. **Under the FAQs section: https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/b...-disc/p/21572/

This Giant Escape 2 has been my daily commuter for the past 6 years. It has handled the mean streets of NYC with aplomb. I do long weekend rides too, but this Summer I plan on doing an epic cross country trip from NY to Cali. Switched out the 32 spoke wheel in the back for a beefier 36 to handle loaded panniers. Put on some schalbe marathon tires, added a topeak rack, and I am good to go.

2018 Roam 3. Have 500 kilomoters on the Jones Bars, they look a bit silly but have made two hour rides possible. Need to work on the seat for longer times in the saddle.

That sounds like a neat trip. We, of course, look forward to many pictures.

That's the Jones H-Bar? I've heard a lot of good things about that bar. I'd love to try one.

Yes it is, with Jones' long grips.

Rapid Fire shifter/brake assembly just fits the Jones bar. Quite comfortable operation on the right side, the front shifter on the left bar side needs more thumb movement and the fit on the bar works fine, but not much room for positioning the gear selecltor. Trimming the grip a bit would solve that. Bells are legal requirement and help hikers hear you coming on trails


Overkill ? Comfy though

Hi, Iím new... this thread is actually how I discovered this forum in the first place; googling hybrids in general! So I reckon itís appropriate to drop a post here. While I do own a Red Trek FX 7.6... itís probably more interesting to share my homebrew flatbar. Itís comprised of a mix of Di2, Ultegra, XTR, Force1 in a 1x11 configuration and is the first bike I built myself, I use it for urban commuting:

Sweet bike @nuxx, congratulations! It must be really fast.
I love the subtle yellow accents.

I came close to buying a Jones bar recently. In the end I cheaped out and got an Origin8 batwing bar. I'll use it through the summer, but I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for a good deal on a used Jones over the Winter.

Did you have to rework your cables in order to fit the new bar?

Beautiful bike! Interesting use of SQLab inner bar ends, positioning it on the outside. Is there a specific reason why you didn't position it inside the grips?

@finch204; My bike thanks you for the compliment. I had some arguably more positionally appropriate composite BBB Barends before, but they proved a bit fragile and I managed to crack one of them. These are mostly a temp install as I had them lying around. I have a fairly wide reach as the cockpit may indicate - so they wouldnít serve me well in an inner position - I also use it primarily for urban riding - so steering a lot more than resting. Iím very open to recommendations for ergonomic carbon barends- these work ok for now - but are indeed not perfect for an outer position.

Do these qualify as hybrids.? Well they certainly aren't your typical road bike..... I took the picture on our Withlacoochee ride today in Inverness Fl. They were just meeting up for a group ride and I grabbed a photo. They passed us like we were standing still a while later. Oh well.

I understand. I don't know if they are ergonomic, but since you have a carbon flat bar bike, I think the Specialized S-Works Carbon Overendz Bar Ends (https://www.specialized.com/us/en/s-...219857-132438a) would look good on your bike.
