    It was a custom built XC racing bicycle that came to me as a frame and fork with a crankset, custom built Moulden stem, and the flat bars.

    I swapped out the stock bars for the drops, installed the new controls, and fitted the drive components and racing wheels.

    It curbs out at 23 pounds nekkid with the lighter Schwalbe tyres.

    That's a pretty feathery setup! Very cool!

    Hi all,

    I'm pretty new here, but wanted to share my commuter/grinder as well. It's a 1988 Trek 7.2fx workhorse, with a few extras that include a Brooks saddle with suspension post, RAM mount for my Garmin GPS, Richie adjustable stem (which gave me the fit I was looking for), a trailer hitch, and of course the bag mounts. It's an aluminum frame with a steel fork, which works pretty well on Missouri's Katy and MKT trails.

    I'm not a big suspension fan overall, but it has made breaking in the Brooks just a little nicer on the bumpy terrain. The Pletscher dual kickstand is the latest addition, and I'm absolutely loving it. Any bike cabal members from G+ might recognize the proud zombie raccoon on the seat tube.

    I'd love to upgrade the drivetrain and wheels, but unless I come across a used 7.5fx for a bargain I'll probably save those bucks for a nicer quality CX.
