I hope the new year has been good to you and everyone is safe.
I have been mucking around with the Trek 720 and the Giant Innova.
The Trek will be done as a Gravel Grinder(love the phrase) as it is the one with the higher bottom bracket, also the smaller of the 2 so it should be a bit more rigid. This bike will get either Tektro 710 Canti's and RL340 levers or Black LX Canti's(and rear derailleur, front will be something road) and Ultegra Flight deck 8 spd brifters.
Giant will be done with more road riding in mind, commuting light touring etc. It will have what is left from the Trek or RX100 Brifters and Shimano CX50's.
Anybody recommend a front load 1 inch quill stem? I want to run more modern drop bars still staying with the 25.4 clamp size and retaining the original fork also.
Here is a couple of bad pics, I will do some better ones soon.
