A few final shots of the 930 refinished. Unfortunately the frame is just a couple three centimeters too small for me, so I'm offering it up for sale in the C&V marketplace.

Darn you!! I just sold my refinished 930 that was a couple three centimeters too small for me last week and yours is just my size. Not even a week after thinking I'd finally reached N I see this. Must be strong...

Damn, that's sexy. Something about a drop bar bike and knobby tires. It's like a elegant woman who will cut a rug in a dress and high heels then turn around and kick your a$$ in the Spartan Race.

Just got the 614 back from the powder coater...took them longer than expected. They said they had to redo it. Anyway, the dents were filled with Lab Metal...they much less noticeable, but if you look close you can see it...well at least I can since I knew where they were. I could have spent more for a less noticeable job filling but this isn't a show bike. For is an aftermarket one I got of ebay...had the right axle to crown and the right offset...though its kinda cheap...still looking out for a good replacement. The closest match to the color they had was called "Blue Steel" so I hope I can still turn both left and right. :-P




Spot the dents:

^^^ Shaping up to be another cool project. One thing to look out for is that yellow paint of any kind tends to cover less effectively than other colors.

I remember when I very recently said that various component finds for my essentially original '81 716 cemented its status as my "all original" or period correct bike. That was until I decided to consolidate my fleet and see if this frame was really as brilliant as it gave me hints of. Consolidation of frames also means consolidation of parts (that are to be employed), so I put together a "greatest hits" list of parts I had, plus some really pretty and shiny standard reach dual pivot RX100 brake calipers.

I just built myself a Cadillac. Or a Rolls. Or a Grail bike. Whatever you want, this thing is comfortable. A truly supple frame, with a top-shelf wheel and tire setup that only makes it better. Plus a B17. Plus the nicest STI generation (pre-internal cables/ever) in a 7800 pair. A nice, high riding position with no undue weight on the hands, full "road range" gearing (for me, anyway), and a bike that literally sparkles in the sunset. Out of the saddle manners are impeccable, as are in saddle manners. Steering does not dive, nor does it hesitate--it is merely hand-in-hand guiding. A top example of steel's qualities. From a ride quality/mile-crusher standpoint, this is easily the best I've built or ridden. Skip the new stuff, buy this. But not mine, because I'm not selling it.

Build List:

1981 Trek 710 frameset (originally 716 build spec), 25.5" or 65cm CTT
Dura-Ace 7400 hubs laced to high polish Mavic MA2 rims
Dura-Ace 7400 crankset (175mm) with 118mm bottom bracket (for more modern Q-factor), 53-39T
Dura-Ace 7800 10-speed STI shifters, FD, RD
11-28T 10-speed cassette
Brooks B17 saddle
Cinelli 110mm stem, 42cm (CTC) compact drop bars (with beer can shim--gotta keep it high brow!)
Soma Supple Vitesse EX 33mm tires (bought used, naturally, as with everything else here)
RX100 standard reach calipers, dual pivot

Since the color to be used has been made known, I guess I can show the cosmetics to the wheelset. As previously mentioned, Iím going in a different direction with this one...make the old bike look modern but maintain most of the vintage drivetrain. Along the way, lighten it a bit, get some better performance and increase the comfort. Thatís the plan anyway

To maintain brake track spacing and text radius, I had to apply these single letter at a time.

Oh yeah!

Lots of 710 series bikes getting attention on here and the 650b Google list lately.

Here's my version of what will, with a few tweaks, be my ideal high-mileage bike.

Campy Mirage 8s w/ long cage RD & Shimano 105 FD
Shimano 600EX hubs - 14-28 7 speed HG cassette (with duplicate 14t small cogs )
Velocity A23 650B rims
Compass Loup-Loup Pass EL 650B x 38
Sun XCD 175mm cranks
Velo Orange 46/30 rings
Tektro R559
Acorn Tall Rando Bag
Velo Orange Randonneur Rack
Velo Orange Model 6

It rides soooooooo smooooooooth.

That thing looks great! The blue is especially nice. I think one of the benefits of being taller/riding taller frames (in this context) is that the tubing/tube wall thickness is proportionally thinner than if it was a much smaller frame. Sure, at 15 mph with no hands, it starts to speed wobble (or is that the annoyingly ever so slightly bumpy roads causing that?), but the upside is all that smoothness over the entire ride, along with a very amenable out-of-the-saddle slow-climb manner. All win.

Not sure this is right place but I'm looking for a used front fork for my 830. Threads stripped last summer and do not want to junk this bike. Too many miles and memories! Appreciate any suggestions.

One bit of helpful information would be the steerer tube length. 830 forks shouldn't be too hard to source. The "ISO and for Trade" thread at the top of the C&V index might also be a better place to post your request.

Most likely speed wobble. My 60cm 710 has it too. First time I rode it I almost got bucked off descending a long left hand sweeper. The lower part of a roller bearing headset dampened it while riding with hands, but didnít eliminate it when riding no-handed. Iíve learned to descend with a knee on the top tube just in case, but it really doesnít show up unless I sit up and ride no-handed.

I'll take no-hands wobble any day if it means I get to keep the ride that it has. Properly, with hands, there is of course no issue. Thus I am enthusiastic about riding it. I took my P15 Paramount to work today. Great ride, but a stiffer, sportier frame and thus response, even with 35mm tires. An embarrassment of riches.

Trust me, I get it. Thereís a reason why itís my main warhorse, and why my wife has a 710 and why I have a 56cm 510 that might fit visitors and a 600 frame with a re-raked, low trail fork for my wife is on its way...
