Is that a hybrid? I find that hard to believe. Where's the motor? That's not a hybrid.

Unless by hybrid you mean a hybrid of MAN and MACHINE.

Looking at a paratrooper (or maybe the black swissbike-same difference), once they're available in Australia...

hybrid-multi use bike e.g. road bike meets mtb kinda thing..

pure racers would be gheyest, seeing as TIGHT spandex and lycra is mandatory, and you spend hours staring at mens arses

that's interesting. what's the weight on those. my giant is around 15 so it feels really light. it may technically be a hybrid but i wouldn't take it on any kind of trail except maybe a very sandy, smooth one. just riding it on the rougher parts of the street nearly rattled the fillings out of my teeth.

and LOL at pat and fong! :D
