    The combination of knobbies and road style drop bars is super bad!

  • Marc B

    got the idea from some guys that were sticking road bars on straight-up mountian bikes and calling them “mega crossers” or “super crossers”. not the fastest way around town, but it does look cool.

    “Super Bad” isn`t that a James Brown song?

    Looks like something Lieutenant Dangle from
    Reno 911 would ride.

    I was thinking of throwing drops on my old Huffy mountain bike, and now I know it will look awesome!

    The original quality Bridgestone mountain bkes did come with road bars. I’ve set up my XO-5 B-stone hybrid with road bars and bar end shifts. 38x700cm tires for combo gravel and paved road touring.

      Mark, This reminds me of a bike that GT made circa 1990, when I got my first “Bike Shop Bike”, I picked up a GT catalog that had had two models that were essentially hybrids. One model, however, had drops with 700c knobbies, but not a cyclocross bike. Very cool nonetheless. Especially to 14 year old dreaming of being a road racer but stuck with 3 miles of dirt road between him and the nearest pavement.

    this bike was my daily rider for years. i have picked-up nicer bikes since, and stripped this bike down robbing all the new parts that i have hung on it over the years. i was tripping over the sad, pathetic bare frame in my garage and it’s future was uncertain. on a whim, i went through my spare parts bin and built this up just to sell it off on Craig’s list. when i was done, i could not bare to sell it. (probably why i have so many bikes getting in my way all the time). anyway, i am glad most of you like it. i was afraid it would not fit in on the site.
