    I took a closer look at the '85 today. I'm not sure if the shimano stuff's original, I need to look at the catalog. Anywho, some pictures:

    Electric Bus

    I just had the amazing pleasure of drafting an electric bus here in Spokane. The city's running a trial on zero-emissions transportation (and since almost all our electric comes from The Dam, it's...

    ^This. I don't think I have that kind of skillz though :(

    +1. It's even worse with snow, which I genuinely favor riding in (it's quieter and comfier to me), but cars go painfully slow :rolleyes:

    Well, I got my first peek at it yesterday. The weather was real shoddy so no test spins yet, but she is beautiful! I'll post some pics when I bring it home next week :D

    Oy. The newest trek I've ridden is 4 years older than I am; is trek no good these days? I don't really step out of the vintage realm ever.

    Ok guys, thanks a lot-I was pretty set on the new one, but it wasn't made in America and there's no Reynold's sticker so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going all in on a "cheap" frame.

    Trek 520, Old vs New

    Hey folks,
    I'm planning on setting up a touring rig in the next few months. I'm a vintage Trek guy, and I've only ever owned Treks; naturally the 2014 520 got my attention (it is beautiful!).

    I don't think 3 times a year would be frequent or annoying. Of course there's a balance, but if someone's not taking their driving privileges seriously I don't see why we shouldn't call them in.

    Are Dynamo Hubs Worth It?

    I'm putting together a touring build for my first long tour (~2000mi). It will be primarily "stealth camping" and I'm concerned about plug availability for charging for my phone and gps. On the other...

    It's surprising to see how many of you have an unconventional bed! I use an air mattress myself. I guess that just fits with the car free mentality.

    Speaking of which, the headlight is hidden on the left side of the fork so I can hang my handlebar bag!

    Vintage Peugeot
