Show me your: Hybrid bike
A proper hybrid. None of this drop bar, racing bike nonsense. 😉
Will take full guards and a rack if required. At the moment it’s dutifully pretending to be a flat barred CX with Maxxis Raze tyres and silly wide DH bars.
Flat barred CX, rigid, skinny wheeled 29er, tourer, commuter = “hybrid”Posted 4 years agoacidchunksMember
Riding position is high which is great in traffic and the handling feels a lot like a proper mtb. I was initially thinking about replacing the hydraulic tektro brakes but they’ve got more than enough power and haven’t needed any servicing in 2 years. Replaced the tyres with land cruisers and the rear mech with an XT after destroying the old one in a chain snapping incident. The fork weighs a ton and is fairly shite, needs replacing with something lighter and probably rigid.Posted 4 years ago
si white – Bars are On-One Midge
ian83 Bag is a Carradice SQR Tour Slim. Seems to have collected a “SuperC” badge and £10 – £15 in price since I bought mine. £80 at the mo from Carradice, £70 from SJS cycles, but showing out of stock. I think they make them in small batches as and when, so they shouldn’t be out for long, especially if you order one!
Well recommended, I’d buy another at the higher price. I’ve recommended 2 friends get them, and they’re chuffed. Holds 10kgs and 16litres, you can strap more stuff to the top. Going towards the 10 kgs with the weight there on the bike does take a bit of getting used to. No worries trundling along, but you know about it if you get out of the saddle and yank on the bars.
Mine’s kept the contents dry for an hour in the pissing rain, but you might want a drybag inside if you’re out in the rain all day. There are bolt heads inside which need covering up if you’re cycling home with, just for example, your work laptop inside. 😳
Easy on-off the seatpost bracket, and when it’s off the bike, you’re just left with that plastic block on the seatpost.Posted 4 years ago
