I put about 7,000 miles on it over 10 years or so and finally painted it matte green a couple years ago and built it up with period XT 8 speed components, Race Face cranks, XT/Rhyno Lite wheels and I went with the Gotham tires from Performance Bike which, while certainly heavy, have proven bullet-proof on another bike.

    As much as I like my 'higher end' bikes, this would absolutely be the last bike I'd part with.

    oh snap, your frame looks VERY similar to mine, even down to some of the clips and things on the seat stay bars. Headset/steerer tube looks different, can yours take 1 1/8" threadless? Is that the original fork? Your brake levers and shifters almost look the same as mine, also. I have close-up pics of that stuff at the beginning of the thread link in my sig.

    I've tried to contact KHS to determine some info about my bike, like say, year of manufacture and original equipment, but have had ZERO response from KHS despite two separate emails. I didn't think mine was as old as 1997, though.

    I'm not 100% sure it's a 1997, but a guy that seemed to know a lot about KHS said with some authority that he thought it was a 1997 or very close to that.

    I haven't checked for sure, but the stem is threaded/old school so I assume it's 1".

    Mine originally came with all Exage components, 7 speed, and Parallax hubs... everything else has been replaced except for the frame, fork, stem, handlebars and seat QR. EVERYTHING else has been replaced. It's just one of those things. From the very moment I threw my left foot over the top tube, I knew this was a long-term keeper.

    Here's a pic from a few years before I refinished it. This is as stock except the seat post (I know... I know...), the saddle, the cranks and bottom bracket and the grips and the fact that it's missing the front derailleur. I broke the front shifter after about 4,000 miles and never replaced it so finally just pulled the front derailleur. I stayed 100% in the small chainring on trails and in the middle chainring 100% on the way to and from. The Exage components were VERY decent though the bottom bracket was rough when I got it. The first things I did were replace the BB and the headset then eventually installed an extra White Industries crankset. Even the little plastic brake centering screw receiver things were not broken.

    FWIW, it has True Temper Ox tubing. I also had another KHS mountain bike that was probably a bit newer (it had a front suspension fork and XT/XTR mix components. Nice bike, but it was 2" too big for me. I tried a super short stem but for anything other than paved roads at relatively leisurely paces, I wasn't comfortable on it. I stole the components for another project and gave the frame away. It also had True Temper Ox.

    Oh cool, you know way more about your bike then I do about mine heh. I really have no idea what parts are original and what parts aren't. It has mostly Deore LX and XT components. When I pulled the Rock Shox Indy XC front fork, the steerer tube has engraved "warranty void if not installed as original equipment" or something like that, so I'm guessing that's probably original.

    There were plenty of mountain bikes with threaded 1-1/8" (28.6 OD steerer) headsets. A few companies held on to 1" for a few years, but I don't think KHS was one of them.

    I would guess the model year is 1994 or '95.
    No later than 1996 because that is about when V brakes replaced cantis.

    That kind of reminds me of bikes the english rode around on during WW2 which were all black in that style "almost", looks very nice in a vintage kind of way.

    The black red and white combo looks really good but the red dot on the bottom of the fork leg looks lonely

    Here's a shot of my Rapid 3 earlier this morning (before it got too hot!). I went for a 34 mile ride, 4 miles of which were off-road trails. The spot in the picture is probably the best that the trail ever got; there were parts of it that were not well maintained at all.

    But that being said, my 700x28c Kenda Kwests did fairly well (much to my surprise). I took it slow and stuck with a 14-15mph pace through most of it. I almost went down one time when I tried to make a turn too quickly, but I was able to save it. With some practice, I should be able to do quite well off-road with this bike and these tires. I was running 80psi out back and 75 up front, but I think a lower pressure would have helped.

    (The spot on the tire is where I rubbed it to make sure that a stone hadn't gotten stuck in it.)

    I just picked this Cyclepro Rendezvous hybrid up from the local CL. $50, and the seller threw in a second 26" wheelset - apparently when she bought them she thought they would fit. They don't, so they were in brand new condition, with new tires. I flipped them for $30, and the buyer didn't want the new 7-speed cassette, so I have an extra one and I'm in for a total of $20 now.

    It's all Suntour, and checking the dates on the Vintage Trek site, looks like this bike is a 1990 model. Lugged frame says Made in USA. From doing a little poking around, I suspect it was part of the U.S. Derby factory output (Raleigh) in Kent, WA. Derby bught Nishiki, Univega, and some others I think, right about this time. I suspect that if I could find a 1990 Raleigh catalog, I'd find a bike that looks a lot like this one. A couple unusual features: It's got downtube braze-ons so could theoretically take DT shifters. The rear dropouts are also threaded for adjustment screws, though no screws are on there. The seat stay bridge has a recessed brake mount hole so it could take a sidepull brake. And oddest of all, the indents on the inside of the chainstays don't line up with the 700c wheels, but are closer to the dropouts, almost like the chainstays were designed for 26" wheels. All in all, it looks like someone in the home office said "quick! we need to get a hybrid out there, now!" so they just grabbed whatever tubes they had lying around that would work for a sort of mountain, sort of road bike, and slapped it together. Overall not too bad looking.100_3667.jpg100_3668.jpg100_3671.jpg100_3672.jpg

    I have a garage sale special 1992 Trek 700, for which I paid the full asking price of $25 two years ago. This month all bearing sets have just been overhauled and the bike has been upgraded with Deore RD, Deore crankset, Shimano micro adjust levers, silver stem and handlebar, and the following new parts; UN54 BB, all cables and housing, reflective Michelin World Tours, Shimano cantilevers and pads, Tourney thumb shifters, and white handgrips. Seat and seatpost were changed and fenders added when I first purchased bike.

    Even my 88 year old dad, who notices nothing, thought the 20 year old hybrid looks brand new!

    Thank you. Got lucky on those reflectors. Apparently I had my flash on and didn't even realize that.

    Yes, this path is beautiful and covers a loop of almost seven miles through woods and preserved wild habitats. I see so many rodents, hawks, wild flowers, etc. There is nothing better than riding this path as the sun comes up and not a soul around.

    Use photobucket or something similar, look at the pictures link- copy and paste the one that says [img] like that. Don't even need to use the insert button.
