Hopefully some love for hybrids here. Picked this up yesterday from a freecycler. Other than the seat (it was missing) it looks all original - just a bit rusty. Needs a clean but she might be a keeper.

I've got one of these bikes - same year. They're great. Fast, comfortable and light enough. The Acera mech.s are not high end but are just fine. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the gripshift shifters: it's hard to shift gear as you're steering out of a turn. But they can be changed. I'm going to see if I can get a two inch tyre under the front fork, a bit like a retro 29er.
