Went Old School Today.....

Took a ride on my 1993 Trek 830 Antelope. I ride this now when I ride with the LOML so I don't have to coast as much. All three of my boys have used this bike through the years. I had to get a new seat post and seat but other than that she is still in decent shape. It's a cell phone pic sorry about the quality or lack thereof. I hit the Nature Trails and had a blast. Since I have started riding again I have lost almost 20 pounds. This has been a load of fun!

Have a great day!
John

John, your bike still looks great, glad you are riding again and congrats on the weight loss. I managed to drop 29 lbs since March, so far. Feel a lot better, too. Hope you can continue the riding and the good results.

Bill

John, congrats on the achievements so far. The old TREK 830's seem to just keep on going.

I sold my Trek820 many years ago and still do not regret it. Got a GT Pantera and don't regret that one going either. Next one was keeper bought in 93 and it is still a good ride---

Congrats on the weight loss. I had an old Mongoose that got me back into cycling. I regret getting rid of it.

Good to see you back on the saddle! Antelopes are a great classic. I have one coming my way if I ever get over there to grab it (free). Fun on trails and in town.

(I ride old bikes, yes even road bikes....I prefer them)

Ride on!
