This is 1 of the nicest pictures so far. I love the look of the Cannondale but not only that the photo composition only adds to the bicycle's striking appearance

Geez, that was a good looking Bad Boy. I never really got the hang of using that Crank bros. pump.
This an 06 ? Novarra Fusion. It is faster than it looks.
One bag went missing and the front bags are in the Twilight Zone??

I did get the reference - that's just not what the parrot horn was for.

My '07 Sirrus:


And my 1988 Alpine Monitor Pass ATB:



Which just goes to show you that "Hybrid" can encompass a wide range of frame types. The '07 Sirrus is a flat barred road bike. (I suspect it would make a good touring bike as well with conversion to drop bars) The Alpine started life as a MTB, but with narrower tires and fenders makes an awesome commuter that still trail capable.

Yes.

The entire setup.

Panthers did say that it was impossible for him to get his brakes oriented properly because of the fork / wheel combination... I'd still like to see a close up of those brakes.

Any decent mechanic would look at this and say the same thing and since I am usually a helpful guy (and a damn fine mechanic), I had to point it out.

Perhaps other people will see that and take a look at their own bikes as many bikes leave the shop without being properly set up because their is a shortage of skilled bicycle mechanics out there.

This really manifests itself with entry level bikes as many shops will not spend as much time checking them over and the senior mechanics will usually be working on higher end bikes and handling more challenging repair work.

One of our members' husband has a brand new Specialized hybrid and I was looking it over the other day (because they are local) and noted the brakes were off... not because of improper setup bit because the rear wheel was not dished properly.

As always... I hope you are learning stuff here.

And he fixed my bike for me Rides like a dream and doesn't scare me to death now with its self shifting

We're still going to get to Bikeworks to get his wheel fixed too hopefully soon. He is out of town again tomorrow.

"...Both arms should be facing straight up and down when the pads are contacting the rim...". So I guess when they are not contacting the rim, they will be pointing out a bit, like 007's? Trust me, the brakes are fine as is. I would not bother playing with the spacers until the pads need replacing.
