Trek 950 a la Rivendell

I bought this frame on eBay along with some of the original parts. I installed some mt60/m730 parts on a set of bosco bullmoose bars. I really enjoy the way this thing rides. Thanks for looking 👍

I Rivified my Univega MTB and have loved it so far. Yours looks nice!

Very nice. Your bike looks comfy.

I really like my '92 Trek 950.

Super! Grant would approve. I did that to my Univega and sold it. I saw an incomplete 950 for sale and thought ...

I would love to find a large 950 - the last year of steel, even if OS, and lugs. Just a bomber frame set. And yours looks stunning!

Mine's most of the way there; just need to swap out the crankset for the shiny silver Sugino, and give her a deep cleaning.



Hey, what's in the big pink box?

Maxxis DTH, 26x2.15. I've since flipped them so they're frontwards. They're really nice.
