Here is my mostly stock Trek TR30 getting a new tire and seat post.
The only mods are better brake pads and and grips. I think it is a solid bike.

Not me.
Don't take it personal though - I just don't like Treks.

Word. ^^^ Trek is mainly a mountain bike company. But I can't say much because GT makes a lot of MTBs.

Oh, i really like your bike man. The purple and blue are pretty sick together. Is that a Shadow chain?

fuzzbox 05-24-08 11:38 AM

No it is a KMC.

So did you get a sex change operation or what? I think you need to post a photo of yourself posing with your bike in those outfits the chicks on the covers of motorcycle magazines wear, just in case.

By the way I think it looks pretty sweet, nice color scheme. I wonder if you could get chrome nuts for the back wheel, that might look cool too.

Here's my two rattletraps as they look now:

I'm just letting the rust do its thing on the specialized's frame, I kind of like it. I started to paint the fork but gave up and let the white paint drip all over it and look crappy. The peugeot (road bike) needs some lovin', in that picture I had started to wrap the bar on the right side but couldn't get the original bar end off so put it on hold - I just duct taped the end of the tape on after that.
