Ha, just read this. My experience is the opposite. I have version 1 biopace on a Trek 620 and the inner ring is the worst thing ever! :)

The 620 Fork is particularly narrow in terms of post position. It took a while to get cants that worked. That sure was a job! Will try options. I don't think that there is a currently up and...

ISO Decent V Brakes, 3x6 Shifter/brake lever for flat bars.

Have decided to convert my Trek 620 to V-Brakes. Not sure if I want to invest in V-Brake drop bar levers or to convert to flat bars. Let's see what's out there.

I edited and added more -- yes, that use of "alloy" to mean basically aluminum is odd, since steel is an alloy too, right?

Anything should work. I like messing around with my Trek frames and...

These ride great. I have the Alyeska and cannot say enough good things about it. I paid $350 for a minty one in a rarer large size. $100 is great for one in decent condition.

I had a tough time on the C&O out of DC -- soggy, puddles, mud. It's a mule towpath, not a rail bed, so the going isn't as smooth as most rail-trails. My Panaracer 27" x 1 1/4" were not quite up to...
