Olmo Firenze with white garage door.



Edit: I just noticed the long brake cables. I've shortened them since this picture was taken.

My white bike - a 1997 Trek 730 MultiTrack. Bought it to be my beater bike, but after some cleaning, lubing and adjusting - and customizing - it's become my favorite ride. It's a clean machine.

No. Color is a continuous property. Integers are not continuous, merely infinite in number.

We have a few already but most are white with black lugs. We need more with white lugs:



FWIW, it is now snowing. All the bikes are snug in their beds with visions of sugarplums in their headsets.

My winter project is to rebuild this as a 1x6 with a flat bar and a bunch of components I've collected over multiple cullings from the Box O' Crap. My stretch goal is to clean up the rust and touch up the paint. If I like the way it rides I might even get it powder coated and re-decaled.
Reminds me of assembling these at the bike shop I worked for long ago. Not a bad fixed gear choice. Esge kickstands for them were cut at 285 line, most European bikes at 265. Reason was the Japanese did not want pedal strike lawsuits.

Challenge accepted! $5 Huffy Techtra. With Paselas, it doesn't ride horribly, although it's too small. Weight isn't an issue here in the flat lands.

Neglected by me for 4 years, paid $35, refurbished last month, but not dialed in. The new Ergo grips are very comfortable on flat bar MTBs.

About a foot of white outside right now...

But hereís my 1989 Trek 1000. My first aluminum road bike, and Iím liking it. Liking the bright white paint too.

Next steps are dealing with paint scuffs, better pedals, and new tires, preferably in 28... itís got 25mm now. Anyone know for certain whether 28s will work on these frames? I have some 32s lying around and thereís no way those are gonna happen...
