    I was having a "flop effect" on my Trek 750 drop bar conversion when I first set it up, although I'm not sure if it's the same as what is being discussed above. I was using the stock 120mm stem with...

    I've recently become a fan of fat tire touring bikes and recently converted a Trek 750 to a drop bar. It works and fits well, but aesthetically it doesn't do much for me. As much as I love vintage...

    I've had good luck with Velocity rims also. I use their MTB rims on my 29er and the Razor rim on my Merckx. The Razor is no longer made but is very similar to the Synergy rim.

    I did a large charity ride this summer in NJ with maybe 5k-6k riders. I was in the starting area on my Merckx surrounded by a sea of carbon and aluminum. A guy next to me kept looking down at my...

    That was definitely a rude response but I've found some people just don't communicate well electronically. I had a similar experience recently with a vintage mountain bike on eBay for local pick up...

    I just picked up this 1994 Barracuda A2E yesterday for $30, it's going to be my winter restoration project (or one of them anyway, there's not that much to do on this):...

    Damn, I've been scouring the Goodwill site for bikes in the Philly area and I haven't seen a single one posted in two months. That's good for me... I keep telling myself... that's good for me.

    I just took my Trek 750 (700c hybrid) drop bar conversion out yesterday for a first ride. I love the idea of this bike as a do everything machine, from road to mild singletrack, put full fenders on...

    Soundtallica, it's good to see someone else using thumbies as bar end shifters. I just set up my Trek 750 the same way. It's not a bad setup, especially since I already had the thumb shifters, but...

    I really only see the benefit of the n/w chainrings on true off road bikes. I had a 1x9 cyclocross bike years ago with a standard non-ramped chainring and I don't remember having problems with...

    The theory is that the narrow and wide teeth on the chainring fill up the narrow and wide spaces between chain link plates and provides a better fit with the chain making it less likely to jump off. ...

    I just started reading through your thread and I am working on a similar project. I have a 1995 Trek 750 hybrid that I am converting to drop bars. This bike had a 7 speed drive train with 135mm...

    Actually some of the best deals I've seen in the past year were posted here in the C&V classifieds. Not steals like $30 for a vintage Trek, but very nice, well put together, well taken care of bikes...

    I think the perception that a lot of people on this site are getting steals may be a bit skewed. People always want to tell about the awesome vintage bike they got at a yard sale for $10, myself...

    I have a set of Continental Town & Country in 26 x 1.9. I really like the inverted tread on these- fast on pavement but still has some grip on gravel. I haven't put many miles on them though, I...

    My '73 Flandria 3 speed gets the most attention, I think people think it's older than it really is. Or maybe it's just the flamboyant chain guard.

    Those retroshifts are interesting, I've never seen them before. I feel stumped on shifters for this budget build- I have 7 speed DT shifters, gripshifts, and thumb shifters, none of which play...

    Nice! I just picked up a 1995 750 singletrack with plans to do something similar. I'm loving this frame so far, it has braze on mounts for everything, even braze-ons for an anti chainsuck plate...
