    Because this is one of my project bikes, it is currently incomplete ...

    Although the pictured bike still needs a front derailleur + calipers & cables, I am posting a picture of it because I want people to realize how versatile a Hybrid frame can be ...

    A Hybrid frame does NOT have to "live" with the Flat handlebar and/or MTB components which it is sold with ...

    • the bike is pictured with a Kelly CX fork, but with a different front fork, the bike will accommodate 700x52 (29er) tires -- potentially, a good thing for fire roads, etc.
    • with fenders + racks it can be used for touring OR commuting
    • with appropriate gearing, a Hybrid with similar setup could probably be used for CX events (i.e., 'I' would use the nose of the saddle to shoulder the bike instead of the top tube)
    • a Road fork would tighten up the front geometry for more nimble road riding
    • et cetera

    Colnago hybrid? Sweet!

    My Marin Mill Valley. Many of the components, the frame and wheels are replacement/upgrades.
