Two of my bikes have Ergon GP3, which I find very comfortable. Just large enough for the thumb and a couple fingers.
Wouldn't want to ride w/o them now.

GP3 on two hybrids here. Most of my riding is flat rail trails, and I use them for cruising nearly as much as using the flat bars..
Wouldn't want to ride a mile w/o them.

Congrats on the mods! The fishing pole gets a big thumbs up also :)
That's how I ride - load up a cooler, or beach towel, or sandwiches.
It's all good..

To consider them "offbrand" would be incorrect, as they have been an established company for many years.
There are many Specialized bikes with FSA cranks and bottom brackets. Why not Shimano there?...

24" / 609mm is the sweet spot for me. Riding bikepaths/trails has never asked for anything different.

Ha! Looks worse than it was. While traveling on pavement in top gear,
I broke off down a very short trail and prepped the rear for when I leave..

Wow, you sure have a few bikes there :) And yeah, it is indeed a freewheel on this one.

Bought A New Hybrid

Has anyone ever had a Nishiki?

I've only taken it out once, but the ride was quite smooth. She has all low-end Shimano,

It is an exterior rack, hence the rear view issue. I did have a roof rack years ago,
but have no interest in that again.

It allows better viewing through the rear view mirror..

What about Danvers/Topsfield? I know it's a bit short, but it's unpaved and I enjoyed it a lot.
Another nice unpaved trail is the Mass Central, located a bit west of Worcester.

At $800, the bike is slightly discounted (retail was always $870)
Unfortunately, the 2017 has slightly downgraded crank, rear derailier, and brakes.

I rode the 2017 Quick 3 and 2017 Sirrus Elite.

Both have a mix of FSA, Sora, some house brand, and other branded components.

Well, either both bikes needed their drivetrain adjusted, or Sora...

Under those circumstances, yes. You should find the Quick lighter and a bit more agile also.
It can certainly handle some trails as well, but I'd go on packed gravel/limestone only.

If I'm not mistaken, they no longer have the two "Sirrus Elite and Sirrus Elite Disc".
For 2017, there is just one Sirrus Elite (which is available only with disc).
The red looks sweet, but I'm...

But for the $200 extra, most of your components will be two-levels higher.
And three-levels higher on...
