I got excited about the 90s Colnago Superissimo I've been building and I started to say some not-so-nice things about my 2010 Trek 520 which sports TIG welding rather than lugs and a few other cheaply made features. Now that I'm so into hacking bikes I was thinking, can't I just hack the Colnago for touring? I could keep a less agressive fork, some fatter tires, and get the local framebuilder to put on some rack braze ons for the next time I tour. Or I could keep the 520. The Colnago has all 80s Campangnolo parts except for the Modolo Professional brakes.
I'm going on a short trip to Siberia and need the money, so I put an ad out for the 520 and now some nice person is willing to buy it from me. And I got all sentimental about the last tour I took the 520 on.
What do you guys think?
