    Actually I have thought of that. However, as of yesterday I lost my assignment with the temp agency I worked for. I will be in the process of looking for work again so the Trek frame sanding and...

    I was actually thinking of a copper color. What I'd like to do is maybe a Krylon can job for the base coat with a 2-component clear (can within a can) where you puncture the "inner" can with the...

    Thanks!

    Well I did some scrubbing this afternoon and I found another partial number in front of the other numbers which was poorly struck. It appears to be the numeral 2. Also I removed the...

    As promised, here are pics of my bare-metal frame which, from the serial #514124 , is a (I think) '90 and I believe the model is a 420 from the 43 cm chainstays and holes for recessed caliper brakes....

    I have some halfway decent Shimano thumbshifters laying around but I don't know if I'm going to be using them or not. The Campy 980 deraillers I got when they were NOS and work very well but I may go...

    I'm doing a similar project as yours with a '90 Trek 420 with True Temper frame tubing. Similar frame but with 43cm chainstays and caliper brakes. But I'm just starting with a bare frame with no...

    Copper Tubing - is it Safe?

    Got kind of a weird question.

    I believe I saw a pic on another bike forum (I think Rat Rod Bikes but I can't remember) that had a cruiser with a handlebar made with copper tubing. I haven't seen a...

    Well the one GOOD thing I'll have to say about a Huffy is the fact that it was the "gateway drug", if you will, which lead me to seek out "the hard stuff". In other words, better bikes!

    A bike shop I wrenched at part-time back in the nineties was a Huffy Authorized Dealer, although the only Huffys we actually carried were the half-way decent Albatross tandem and the three-wheeled...

    For sure. It seems that all the mainstream brands are trying to out-ugly each other. One particular example I'll give is GT. I've always admired their triple-triangle frames but the beauty and...

    From the looks of it pretty much any bike, except a cutting-edge road racer, can be a gravel grinder (a term I've never heard of until a week or two ago!). It appears that gravel grinding is not...
