Less talk & more pics!

These endless debates to define the term hybrid!!! Why not post pics of desirable or cool hybrids "according to your own definition". I start with my fave swedish brand Monark. This bike came in a very limited edition in mid 2000.

Kind of a unique Kona Dew FS. This is a 2010 model and is supposed to have swoopy curved frame tubes ... but doesn't. Only 2010 I've seen like this. Kind of a "classic hybrid" according to some definitions. Great bike, fast even though somewhat porky (29.9 lbs)

Yes, absolutely correct. We already have a bike picture thread and it is a "sticky". Should have used that thread instead folks

They are 37mm but actually measure out at about 34mm. Called Continental "CountryRide". Seem to roll pretty well. Definetly easy to mount and take off (LBS had installed the front one backwards after replacing tube).

They looked pretty large, You must take the Kona out on the trails, and leave the Trek for fast Road Rides? Richard

Something about that pic just isn't right. Can't quite put my finger on it, but it's like there's something in the background that just ruins it...

You must be talking about the leaf blower just sitting there, and all the leaves in the garage...Richard : ) By the way nice looking Trek.

Fail. Not necessarily your bike, but desirable and own definitions of hybrid. Bikes you want or not. The Monark I´ve shown isnt my own. Hit this thread with eye-candy!
