    These "turkey levers" may still be popular today if someone actually took the time to develop and engineer them properly and of course market them for perhaps touring or recreational road bikes (not...

    Back in the nineties someone in my cycling club had a bike with aero levers w/suicide levers attached. I think this is when the aero levers first came out and it appeared that the suicide levers on...

    After nineteen years riding fixed I recently gave it up. After rupturing my Achilles tendon at work I'm simply too paranoid that if I get into a mishap I could rupture it again and I can't afford to...

    thanks, flynn. I was also thinking green but I already have a touring bike that's dark green and I kind of like variety.

    Trek 420 Frame Raised From the Dead

    Last April I posted pics here of my rusty bare-metal '90 Trek 420 and I wanted to show the finished frame & fork sporting decals from Velocals.

    This frame is my "experimental game" as I wanted to...

    It's healing fine, thanks!:)

    I'm in my early fifties but due to being athletic I got my cast off in half the normal time.

    Sorry, I don't want to derail this thread. Carry on with the Trek 400!

    Thanks for the info and offer, Kimmo!:)

    Unfortunately 110 isn't near wide enough as I'll probably need at least 117 for the crank I'm using. I will use your advice and either use a conventional...

    I've been out of commission for a month due to surgery on a ruptured tendon. I got my cast off about a week ago so at least I can do stuff now.
  10. Bottom Bracket Threads Worn Away (Not Stripped)

    I have an oddball problem with the bb of my '90 Trek 420 frame. I bought the bare frame (it's REALLY bare, not even paint!) at the local co-op and it had a piece of an aluminum bb retainer or cup...

    Cycling after Ruptured Achilles Tendon

    Today I was in surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon (work-related, not from cycling). Needless to say my 2014 riding season is pretty much over. I was diagnosed at a sports medicine center...

    Love Vintage Trek! The site really came in handy to help i.d. my bare rusty no-paint 420 frame and fork. Pics of the painted frame will be supplied when the project is...
  15. Inner Chainring - 39T (or less). Campy 135 BCD

    I'm wanting to use my Campy Athena crank for my '90 Trek 420 project. Current rings are 53-42 - way too big. I was thinking of going 42-39. Smaller than 39T would be better. Doesn't have to be...

    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...

    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...
  20. Trek 420 Bare Metal Frame Refinish & Buildup

    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....

    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...
