Giant ATX 760


Pre wash

Met someone getting ready to recycle this frame or sell it for scrap. I offered to pick it up for free and they were happy it was going to be ridden. 2 years later and I finally got the time to fix it up






I know, I know, chain is too short

Great as a little commuter

Half step and granny. It's all the rage in 1985. Hell I still use it.

$25 ‘88 Trek 1500

Picked this up as a donor for the Schwinn Tempo I bought last week. The Tempo needs a wheelset, and transferring the 600 Tricolor bits over would be an upgrade too. After a quick spin it’s a fun ride with those mustache bars, but I think I will still cannibalize it. Need to find some 600 brifters now as I hate downtube shifters…..

That Trek is nice, but sometimes you gotta finish that other build! Digging those bars, are they branded?

I don’t know on the bars, won’t be able to see that until I unwrap them which may be a little while, have to work through the que. I’ll keep them for a potential project maybe, they’re pretty comfortable.

The handlebar looks like Velo-Orange Porteur. I like them a lot. I just put a new headset on my Poprad, while doing so, I switched to the Porteur bars with 10 speed Tiagra brifters. Since I took the following picture, I switched the big chain ring to a 48, now no need to lengthen the chain.

Very comfortable
I now have the bars with just a slight down angle toward the grip area.

delbiker1 Ahhh nice, I actually have a set of VO Porteur bars in the parts bin, but I had them setup with the VO city brake levers, which I would not recommend, as they have edges sharp enough that one cut the brooks saddle that was on a bike it was stored next to in my garage.

A really unlikely estate sale to find any bike stuff in, but there it was, mingling with the garden tools. I also found a Custom left crank arm with a broken pedal spindle, so somebody seems to have bought the Park tools necessary to fix that years ago. Half-off Sunday!
