Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Perfect thread for me. I just finished this yesterday (well, temporarily until I get a new stem and brake pads) My first cross race is Saturday so I've been working on throwing something together. It's an 84 Trek 520, running 1x8. Thought the sport touring geometry would work well, but I took it out yesterday and had some toe/front wheel overlap issues. Hopefully it won't effect me too much in the race this weekend.

I saw it in a cyclocross race, which IMO makes it more of a cyclocross bike than probably half the so-called cyclocross bikes on this forum.

dude, hosteller, how many times are you going to post your bike?

Any Ideas On This Bike?

Is that really necessary? perhaps you should just accept that the internet doesn't think your bike is as cool as you think it is.

We definitely need to rid Bike Forums of all these people who overindulge in posting pictures of their bikes. Luckily, I've only posted mine in three or four threads, so I'm good to show a few more pics of it here.











Technically, only the frame and brakes are vintage.

Nice bike, you need to get that dent in the TT fixed though. Waterord lowers their rates in the winter on paint and repairs. If not call Jack Franklin of Franklin Frame in the Columbus OH area. http://home.windstream.net/franklinframe/

He did my Waterford, one of them actually. This is a 1995 Waterford 1200

I got no problem with that, but come on.
He's made four separate threads in two different forums (both of which have dedicated "pics of your bike" threads) and just posted the same two pictures every time.
If you're proud of your bike, take a picture when you change something on it and post it in the appropriate thread. Don't just start threads reposting the same photo over and over again in the span of a week.

He dierford, one of them actually. This is a 1995 Waterford 1200
Thanks, yeah I thought about restoring the frame, but I think it would get too expensive. There is also a crimp on the seat tube from the Front derailleur clamp, and I cleaned out a bunch of rust flakes from inside the frame. Also rust is bubbling through the paint on the chainstays.

The frame was not taken care of by the original owner- but I got it for $50. I can't see the point in paying about $200 on a frame I paid $50 for which will likely fall apart due to the inner rust.

EDIT:

And the cost of a repaint on top of that...


yeah awesome stem btw.

I picked the bike up in 2006. It was a 1995 Team Mak bike built by Waterford. That's the original Stronglight headset. A lot of early Waterfords used Stronglights. They were big on Waterford built Paramounts. Seeing as this was an early production Waterford there's a lot of Paramount influence in its design.

I have a blue RSE-11 that looks like the other cross Waterford posted earlier. Mine is set up like a touring bike now. I'd like to set it up more like a cross bike though.

Dr Deltron on who posts on the vintage forums has some kind of trick for fixing dents in frames. Yours might not be as bad as you think.

Ok here is an updated picture of the bike for the forum police. Post bike pics not bull$%^&. I posted more than you would have liked. Deal with it. What is the point you are trying to make. The bike isn't really that cool. I never said it was. I found it in a field covered in rust. It is a no name lugged steel bicycle. I am just trying to see who else has done the same thing. I like vintage. I like to see things others have done. That is why I started this new post. If you are irritated don't reply on this thread. There are many others you can waste your time on. If you like what is on here follow it and enjoy the pictures I hope people post.

Here are the updates:

Bontrager saddle
Crank brother pedals
Weinmann levers
Dia Comp rear brake
39t ring previous pic showed a 42
SR Stem and Wider bars

I can't speak for the headset, but that is a Cinelli Frog stem. I believe they're from the late nineties or the early 2000's. They look great.
