Bikes: trek 1000 upgraded
Running out of excuses,lol
I`ll be posting pictures as soon as I figure it out. I`m finally about to get my trek 1000 w/carbon fork up to speed. Upgrades as follows. seat,b17(highly recommended), seat post, wheels:mavic open pro,ultegra hubs,32h. Went with190 cranks, 105 pedals, shimano shoes. Sigma wired computer w/cadence, rear light, front light. New riding shorts. R500 shifters, best upgrade yet. Experimenting with cassette, down to 12-28 from 11-30(original 12-26).New chain, ultegra chain rings.Currently long cage rear derailleur to accomodate larger cassette for 10 mile loop with 4 big hills. New brake pads and chain. Have had a great time upgrading and learning about my bike, oh yeah racelite tires on one set and gators on another. Its a 63cm frame. These upgrades have been done over a period of time. Got the original bike for small change and really liked the way it felt. The improvements have all made a difference, each one adding to a more pleasureable ride and helping to accomplish goals. If you`ve done the same or similiar lets hear about it.
