Anyway, I've slowly been converting this over to a beach cruiser type of ride since there aren't any mountains or even hills around.

    Not an expensive one but perfectly good for everyday cycling and trails. I need to replace those tyres though.

    Great pics folks, loving the wide variety of bikes (lots on Titanium bikes too)

    thanks Egads for the info, it is on the to do list for us as a family in a couple of years we plan to do the whole east coast, Florida Disney thing and then head over to the west coast (I also surf and want to surf spots like Rincon, Venice Beach etc) so we plan so spend a month away visiting many places including Moab.

    I have one of the "urban" versions, the Zum. Pretty much the same frame, but with a solid fork and 700c wheels. 1x8 wide range drivetrain on mine. Easy to deal with and definitely very capable even on questionable streets. I've no doubt it would do well on hardpack or gravel, but haven't ventured in that direction yet.





    It seems like everywhere in metro Atlanta is paved, which is fine with me because the road bike (GT GTR Series 3) is a lot of fun and I can still get some great scenery without too much interaction with traffic.

    This sort of thing would be what I would want to get, and admittedly have been talking about getting for several years now... but have yet to pull the trigger.

    I used to have a Nishiki mountain bike with really big monster tires I think they were called. I don't really remember any more. I gave it to my roommate when I left Virginia for Arizona. When I moved here, I had a 1991 Toyota pickup with a camper shell. I fit my guitar rig, an old dresser and a few boxes in the back, and hit the road, left a lot behind. That was 15 years ago, still don't have a bike.

    Do it, man! I think a hybrid is a good compromise for a general-use bike. Faster than a mountain bike on the street, but more relaxed than a racing bike, and you can take it places you wouldn't dare on the drop-bar roadie.

    Goofy shot my Dad took when I stopped by their house last year. It's an '08 Gary Fisher.


    Shawn...I had the EXACT same Peugeot bike! Too funny, I got it in '87! Great taste.

    Diamondback Response. Got out on the trail for a quick 16 yesterday - first time this year. Fraught with equipment issues - new helmet doesn't fit over headband. Cadence magnet - gone. Computer was set to kilometers.

    Still fun.

    well, I used to have a BMX when I was a kid/teen ager. I used to live in Rio de Janeiro and ride a bike to do all my stuffs. Never had a good bike. This one below is the ride I have for the last 17 years.
    .

    Caloi 100 Ibira por aduayer, no Flickr


    Caloi 100 Nite Ride por aduayer, no Flickr

    then I moved to Sao Paulo and stopped riding (the traffic here is insane) and gain so much weight. Then, 5 months ago, I started to ride at night with my old bike and having fun, etc. But the old bike wasn't helping me, so I got an other bike and this one is so high end (my friends says it's a PRS on 2 wheels) that it pushes me to ride it everyday. I lost some weight (don't know how much), but the thing I am happy with is how better I am feeling.

    this is my new babe when I was riding with it last week in Rio de Janeiro (Rio and bike are meant to be)

    Ignite Barra da Tijuca por aduayer, no Flickr

    and this one I took yesterday, here in Sao Paulo

    Ignite Pinheiros por aduayer, no Flickr

    and yeah, it's tough to spend so much money in something that's not a guitar and to postpone my 408MT and DG30 amp. but that's another story and thread...lol

    Great shots of the new bike Duayer! Is that a bike trail that runs along side the river in SP? I can imagine riding around Lagoa in Rio would be a very nice ride too.

    Agreed. And I hear you loud and clear. It's rough to budget in things that aren't PRS GAS related.

    Riding in Lagoa is sweet. But at the beach there's a bike trail and is also awesome.
    and yes, that is a bike trail that runs along side the Pinheiros River.

    I'll have to grab some pics. I've got a Giant Rincon mountain bike and a Trek 1220 road bike. The road bike gets most of the riding time.

    Riding the bike at the beach makes me think of Three's Company.

    When I was young I rode a road bike daily, and put on a lot of miles. I even raced a road bike in the early 70s (lost a lot).

    But I haven't ridden in 10 years. I really need to get back into it.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    I picked up my bike about a year and a half ago, one of the best decisions I've made while living in Boston. As a student living downtown (by necessity, not by choice), it's way too expensive to have a car. With my bike, I can buzz all over the city and get some exercise while I'm at it. I ride it every day to school, weather permitting.

    This is my Trek roadbike:

    ALWAYS stop for ice cream.


    After your ride, make sure to have a beer!
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
