Better pics (sorry bout the wheel mismatch, the tubulars were totally unglued so I'm running what I got right now):

My ‘83 970 acquired not so long ago. I’ve been really enjoying getting dialed in on this bike. Tried to revive old Superbe brake pads, now better but still squealing, so probably have to switch them out.
I catch myself stopping to admire this one… a lot.

I have, with calipers like this, had some success with VERY CAREFULLY twisting the arms so that the pads hit the rim on the leading edge first.

Yokozuna makes some very good brake pads that also look great on these vintage Suntour brakes.

Bikes: Wow, where to start? A collection of 1980's and early 90's road, touring, and MTBs from the likes of Trek, Schwinn, Cannondale, Fuji, Miyata, Univega, Panasonic, and GT. It has gotten rather out of control.

@theblackbullet always nice to see a properly large-sized Trek! You running those Tektro long reach calipers for potential 650B, or was it just out of reach of standard reach 47-57mm calipers? The pewter color really lends itself to stealth modernization. The black components look good on it.

Made a wrong purchase
I acquired it as a bare frameset, and I assumed or though I read somewhere that I'd need long reach going from 27" to 700c. 47-57 caliper would work perfectly.

Thanks!

So wait, what tires are those then? Not 650bs?

700x38c Gravelking Slick! They are mounted on DT Swiss R460 rims and measure out pretty accurately to 38mm wide!

I love that museum, it's what our joke of a lakeside "community center" should have looked like. Perfect venue for a shoot, esp being not far from where the subject bike was hatched.

Haven't been to Mke in ages, should get back there just to take in the updates to the bike infrastructure.

For some reason, the thrift stores around me like to attach $$$$ price tags on bikes. After I picked up a lovely Trek 600 from the original family, I thought I'd stop by the local thrift store just to see if I could double my wins...well, they had 3-4 bikes, nothing special, and they were like $190!!

@75lechamp , you were telling me about this bike on our ride, but it is really nice to see pictures. It looks to be in fabulous condition, and fun to see what I might want to do w/ mine as far as bar tape and tires go, etc. It's the little touches, like the blue housing, that are those subtle things that really make a difference.

Maybe we can both drag our Treks out on one of the next local ride, although I need to up my game and probably get a Trek jersey or something.

Question for the Trek collective - is there a definitive answer on which years or models Trek used a faux lug stamping on the headtube? This design was brought to my attention based on the thread with @scarlson and @Standalone showing pictures of their cracked Trek 6xx bikes. I also noticed that my Trek 560 Pro Series also has a 1-piece headtube and lug set.

Do we know which other years or models have this as well? I'm making an assumption that all of the higher end Treks (9xx and 7xx series) did not have 1 piece headtube/lug combos?

Here is my @Clang find - 1983 Trek 600 with updated 105 groupset - from original owner. This is from when I first picked it up:




Also, rode my Trek 750 Multitrack the other day to pick up my work truck from the shop. These bikes offer serious bang-for-your-buck value and punch way above their weight. With some higher quality slicks on her, she is such a smooth rider and definitely exceeds expectations. This is my 'do-all' bike:

Mentioned this in the co-op thread, a 531 Trek Elance that looks like a 25" frameset. It has a 34" standover height with some old 30C wheels on it and I have no reason to keep it, having sworn off bikes over 24"/62cm. Really scuffed and scraped, but I find no dents or cracks although it looks like the rear spacing was narrowed for fixie/SS use.
