Thanks. It was on a tight-budget. I shopped wisely (and was patient). Mostly new parts, some used (but good).

Finished the build yesterday. I was on a tight budget, but I chose the parts wisely. Reminds me of my old cyclo-cross bike.

1997 Trek 820 Mountain Bike Conversion

This is my do-it-all bike. Finished the build yesterday. Running SS for now. I'm not new to SS. I rode a 29 lb. 29er for 5 years. :D

1997 Trek 820

This doesn't qualify as "vintage", but it is a conversion nonetheless. Running SS for now. Soon to be a full out touring bike. The frame/fork geometry is similar to an ideal touring bike.

All the bikes I ever owned (and fixed/sold) have had either drops or straight (no riser) bars w/ occasional bar ends. No interest in any other kind.

I'd like to try aero bars on straight bars....
