Converted the Nishiki to a 1x7 with 2mm thick washers for now

It came with a riveted Tourney, but I had once bought an Acera for the 'ole Raleigh, and took it off that bike to use it here.
Saved 1.18 lbs, but still have to remove the combo brake/shifter to shed a couple more ounces.

This will someday be a 1x10 Deore with an 11t-36t cassette, but can't seem to buy that from a reputable site right now.

Nice working making the parts you had suit your needs! Is that the original rear derailleur? It looks a little more "vintage" than the bike.

I bet that bike rides nicely. It's got a long wheelbase and appears like a comfortable ride.

hokiefyd - good eye spotting the old Acera RD. It is there just temporarily.

Yeah, the bike is quite comfortable. Very different from what I was riding, yet felt good from day-one.

The Tourney 14t-28t freewheel wore out this year, so I bought new wheel with a Deore freehub, and use the 11t-28t from the Raleigh.
With the 11t now, I no longer need the 48t chainring, and could finally do the 1x7.

Here's a stock picture from 2017. My pit crew found numerous things which were not adjusted properly from Dicks Sporting Goods

Your pit crew looks like a professional lot. They're dressed in all black, completing the look. My crew didn't get their livery squared away -- one wears black and one wears orange!

I bought my daughter a GT Laguna Pro from Dick's several years ago. It was a great value on sale at $299 (not so much at "regular" price). But I certainly needed to adjust several things to make it right to ride, and for typical bike guy OCD (things like cable routing) -- something I'm glad to do for such a low entry price point (as long as the material quality of the bike is high enough, which it is).

Going to try to ride as far into the winter as I can, so I put a set of Cascadia fenders on my 25-yr old Mongoose Crossway.

Can't believe I lopped off the back end.

I attached a Bluetooth speed sensor on my Fuji, and mounted on a mag-trainer to go Zwifting on the cheap. It was 85 degrees hot in Southern California.

Got my old mag trainer working on Zwift.

Awesome looking hybrids here. Played a little handle bar switch. My Son digs the straight bar and I crave the dirt drop so the Schwinn Fastback and my Specialized Globe exchanged.


Crab! Donít have a pic of the Schwinn. Bars on the Globe are super comfy and the bike is now a full 9 speed.

Rode my size 17.5" 7.6 FX for the first time in many months (the one in the background is a size 15".) It was a nice, breezy 26į-Celsius afternoon here in Jeddah today.

I almost forgot just how fast this thing is. More importantly, I almost forgot just how comfortable this thing is. I decided to take it out instead of one of my folding bikes on a 20-mile round trip for an errand I needed to run, thinking that since I'm riding into a much busier part of town, I probably could use the extra speed and comfort. I figured right.

I left just before 1:00 PM and was back home by 3:25 PM. By the time I got where I was going at 1:44 PM, I felt as though I hadn't even been riding a bike at all for 45 minutes or so. Absolutely nothing hurt or felt sore, and I wasn't anywhere close to exhausted or tired. I love this bike.
