Yeah - Ergons are nice - but I think he's stuck with a proprietary handlebar/grip combination and 'regular' grips won't fit and barends only eith a custom kit.

I bought the Multitrack for $25, and after the shifters crapped out last May, upgraded the drivetrain to Deore and swapped out the black handlebars, stem, and seatpost.

Nice looking bike, mate. At $25, you almost stole it, too.

Thanks for all the compliments.

In the USA any unbent Trek, kiddie, mtb, hybrid, or road bike, for $25 is a "steal!"

I am picking this up in a few days. One of the best looking I've ever seen and I just HAD to have it. My wife even approved because she said it was cute. Haha!

eh not that big on all the curved frame members myself. Looks like they went a little overboard with it. But if you love it then

I like it, the paint looks classic perfectly suited to a Pinarello. Please post close up detail pic's when you get it, you'll be the first owner to do so on here.

Unfortunately the Treviso isn't in the cards for me. My LBS only had a smaller size and said they would have a hard time getting another size if at all possible. My search continues. It was very pretty in person though.

It's alright dude this thread not really just for your own bike. But gave Rise a nice compliment saying his old bike is nice. I don't think he even owns it anymore!

Hello again,
I picked up the adapter kit from my LBS, along with a pair of bar ends. Everything now installed and working great. I do appreciate having another few hand position possibilities.
Best regards
