    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.Attachment 259001Attachment 259003Attachment 259004Attachment 259005
    I somehow missed this one. I hope you repost lots of big pic's when you've cleaned it up coz I like it and keep those tires with the bike they look the goods on a retro bike.

    Wow on the 1992 Trek 700! Looking mighty fine.
    I have a 1997 Trek 730 that I love. Those Multitracks were/are nice bikes.

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!

    Excellent work. Better than brand new, for sure!

    It's finished. My daily commuter/pickup truck/hybrid.
    The bike is "loaded" right now for the photo op but there is only about 30% of this equipment on the bike at any given time depending on what the plan-of-the-day is.

    Great looking bike, Igo. If I hadn't found such a good deal on my Rapid 3, I would have gone with the same bike. I like your GPS mount. I have always considered getting one for my Garmin, but I just strapped mine to the stem of my MTB with a zip tie. My Rapid has a computer, so I never bothered with the GPS. It would be nice for elevation stats, though...

    I don't do heart monitor or cadence thing so the GPS fits the bill better. This one even peddles the bike for me...6 inches off the ground.

    I bought that silvery kick stand at Wally mart a few weeks ago, and then yesterday saw Target had a black one. I might have to swap it out for the black one I think.

    I think the color of the kick stand matches the rims just fine.

    Been admiring the bikes in this thread for a while and finally decided to post mine.

    Its a Cube SL Cross. This brand may be interesting to add to the thread since it is quite common over here in mainland Europe (german brand) but much less common in the US or even the UK. For now I'll add an indoor shot (just cleaned it). Will add an outdoor one when I go for a ride this week.

    Just changed the bar stem and added bar ends which I taped for comfort.

    Nice quality looking bike. Cube MTB's have just become available in Australia in the last year or so, I've seen them in the flesh and like them too.

    More info about this chain guide? Does it help avoid problems with lateral chain line variances when using a single chain ring and multiple cassette sprockets?

    Vader bike looks pretty sweet. I may have to reduce the colors on my bike to just black, polished, and yellow (get rid of blue bits).

    Ah so it sort of takes the place of the front derailer but without actually moving.

    My New Bike.

    Hi, I'm new to the forum.
    Finished rebuilding a rusted Trek FX 7100.



    Had most of the parts in my recycle bin, and some parts that were meant for another project.
    Truvativ cranks, stem and bars, Raceface 36T single speed chain ring, (7 speed.) Pedals are Wellgo flats. New back tyre Vittoria Randanneur Cross 700C x 35.



    The chain ring cover is a 48T ring with the teeth and sharp edge removed.



    Might have to change the grips to lock-on. They were fine on my old MTB bike in winter but most likely from the heat, they slowly spun around on this test ride. Although it was cloudy and raining, the temperature was 35c /93F.

    I did much the same thing with an old Gary Fisher during April / May. (Mostly old parts) I too grinded the teeth off and went 1 x 9 I restricted the back derailleur to 7 to avoid the chain skipping off the front ring. I will soon be putting the smaller front on soon, as I have started using it for MTBing too. Won`t bother with the front shifter and front derailleur. I`ll just manually change the front when I go into the mountains.
