8700

Here's the 8700. I've changed tires, seat/post/stem, and gone to V brakes. This is the Carrera GT of full rigid race bikes; light, nimble and you'd better pay attention at all times or you *will* be off your line!

Aired up and washed the 79 510, and installed a nice saddle. I am thinking about putting the Gran Sport group back on this bike. Not sure what I will put the flip flop wheel and brakeset on. Maybe the team Miyata frame?,,,,BD

It's the Deda leather look stuff, in tan. I stretched it out on a long piece of wood, wiped it down with alcohol, and sprayed it dark brown with SEM vinyl dye. So far so good. I have two bikes with this color wrap.,,,,BD

I had been looking for a well priced pre-1991 lugged 970, 950, or 930 for a while. I think 1991 is when they switched from 1" to 1 1/8" stems. Luckily, I stumbled across this 1989 950 in my top color choice for a steal.

My goal was to diversify a bit by adding a mountain bike that I wasn't afraid to ride on light trails, I'm a big guy and was afraid of breaking my 1985 600 (which is for sale on my local craigslist btw). I moved the 650b setup, upright bar setup, and other parts over from that bike.

Key details: Nitto Technomic, Nitto Promenade B603 bars, Son Dynamo/Phil Wood/Velocity Synergy 650b wheels, Panaracer Pacenti Pari-Motos (38mm), Suntour XC thumb shifters flipped and mounted inside, Tektro cr720 canits, Stanley 20oz One Hand Vacuum Mug....great for frozen margaritas. Still need to rig up the Supernova lights.

Future plans: beige SKS longboard fenders, Compass Switchback Hill Tires (48mm) unless something bigger comes out, salmon Koolstop pads, maybe a slighter longer stem.

My new to me '81 957. This thing has seen some miles. It came wearing a well loved SR group that is now resting in a box (It's just chillin', I'll find a frame for it eventually). The Mavic wheels are just temporary until I track down the correct cassette lockring for the other wheels.

The makeshift tool bag behind seat is from the goodwill. Still figuring out mounting placement.

Here's my 1984 460 that's been completely refurbished, all shiny bits have been polished and a new set of Mavic wheels with ten speed hub fitted to the rear triangle. The bike rides like a dream!

Here's my new purchase - a 1991 Trek 950. Paint is white with black splatter. Fork is big and chunky "Cruise Control" type. I prefer tapered forks but the bike was cheap.



Not sure why I can't get a photo from Flickr to here via iPad. If you're interested, see Velocivixen on Flickr. I'll try to upload when I'm on a real computer.

Your image link was the address of the Flickr photo page, not the address of the image itself. You have to jump through a few hoops to get the image address from Flickr on an iPad. What I usually do is copy the "image address" from the Flickr app and paste that into Chrome. That will take you to a web page for the photo. From there, I use the "show all sizes" link and navigate to the size I want. Then I click the image and tell Chrome to open the image in a new tab. Finally, I go to that tab and copy the image URL from the browser's address bar and come back to Bike Forums to paste it into a message.

You have to be pretty determined to share a picture.

For now, here's your picture.

Ok, let's try again.

Original Front Wheel by velocivixen, on Flickr
Top Tube Decal by velocivixen, on Flickr
Shimano Deore LX RD by velocivixen, on Flickr
Trek "Cruise Control" Fork by velocivixen, on Flickr


So far all I've had to do was lube the chain (it needs to be replaced - stretched), patch rear tube, redish & lightly true rear wheel, grease seat post, adjust saddle and clean up a bit. While I had the rear wheel off I used frame tools to ensure the dropouts were aligned and then, once my newly true wheel was reinstalled, I used the derailleur hanger alignment tool to slightly adjust that. I also removed the back panels on the shifters and used liquid silicone spray because the pawls were gummy. Now it shifts fine. The bike has a "Community Cycling Center" sticker, which means they overhauled (likely) it and sold it to the gal I bought it from.

[MENTION=421991]TenGrainBread[/MENTION] - first and foremost every time I read your name I think of Dave's Killer Bread, which is local and FABULOUS. You're not a baker by any chance?

OK, thank you. The decals are supposed to be red, but they're sort of tomato red - red with an orange cast. I'm thinking about red housing....just because.

Excellent composition, that's the way I wish my pictures would come out.

Here's my early 80's "Vintage Trek". I have not been able to figure out exactly what it is but suspect it's an 81-82 612? I bought it new from Penn Cycle in Richfield Minnesota when I lived the for about a year. It's followed me since, but almost always went back into the basement for storage, since Kids and everything else in life seemed to get in the way.
