I have all the parts here so this weekend I am going to do the transformation of My Trek 7.2 into more of a distance touring & commuter Hybrid. The most significant change will be the bars. I will be going to Butterfly Trekking bars after much thought & discussion in my century thread. The bike has come a way since I originally purchased it for a simple exercise bike that I barely used the first year. Last year I had a very successful year commuting 20 miles a day 4 to 5 days a week. I am planning a 130 mile century ride in June & will start commuting again after March 15.
This is the original configuration & mods I made to the bike. Nothing special here, just fenders,seat and post rack
