    I'm waiting for the next C2W to upgrade too...

    Hmm... CX or Audax?

    I like panniers and mudguards...

    Hey, I might see you on Sunday, sometime...

    sorry to say this but you'll be kicking yourself even harder (careful with the bruises :lol:) when you get a proper road bike.

    Hybrids are neither fish, flesh, nor good red herring.

    I can lend you my Tricross if you want to try a proper bike ;)


    After all you DO need a stronger bike to support your lardy frame :roll:

    I have a hybrid and a road bike, and I'm not kicking myself for getting the hybrid- gets ridden every day and I wouldn't be without it. Couldn't let the hybrid knocking go unanswered :)

    my beef with hybrids is not the bikes but the term which is meaningless really mind you one could argue that road bikes is worse in that it's a narrow meaning, the older being better, ie racer.

    but yes plenty of good hybrids around, they win TT for starters.
