Wow! You, my friend are a genuine rock star!!

I had to look up Steve Jay on Wikipedia. He sounds like one awesome dude and a rock star of the first order.

We're surrounded by greatness here in C&V land!

Okay, back to bikes...

An update on the new Trek 710, since I've now got it set up for some serious riding.

I built a couple of 650b wheels for it, put on some lightly used Panaracer Pari-motos I had lying around, swapped the brakes for some long reach Tektro r559s, and put on a comfy Brooks C15 saddle. Other parts are pretty much what it came with. I just went for a 30 mile ride and completely fell in love with this bike. For some reason these old Treks are even better with 650b wheels and wide-ish tires. This is how it will stay until my son grows into it...
