I have to ride a fair way on the coast road before I get to the trails. It was OK getting there on my MTB but always hard work getting home. Wasn't economical having to replace tyres with only the middle of the tread worn down.
At first I wasn't going to bother getting the Trek as I have a Cannondale frame that I want to build up but realized that most of the parts that needed replacing were the cheap regular bits like brake pads and cables. Most of the other parts are old but came up well with a can of matt black spray or wire brush, steel wool and metal polish.
Rode the Trek on a few forrest trails in the hills after I took these photos and was surprised how well it handled, even with a 700c x 28 on the front. Once that wears out I will replace it with another Randanneur Cross.
