My lugged '92 Trek 930 with first design Origin8 Gary Bar and Terry stem. The silver sleeve on the top tube is to protect the top tube from the handlebars.

I vaguely remember something about a collaboration between Tom Ritchey for the first mtb frames from Cinelli, but i'm not able to recall the details. Cinelli made frame for some other, in particular for austrian kastle (kastle randonee in particular). This is a first series 8001, the second series had rear cantilever brake [EDIT they were ubrake probably] on the seatstays...

1994 Specialized Hardrock Sport

I just finished this drop bar conversion . . . although maybe not technically a conversion because it didn't have any kind of bar when I got it. But it originally had a flat bar, so here we are. I found the frame in my local community bike shop. It came with the fork, headset, bottom bracket, seat post, seat (which I didn't use) and brake calipers. The paint, bearings, and components were all in great shape, so I think this bike may have lived most of its life in the corner of a garage. Other than that, the goal of the build was, as much as possible, to use parts I had on hand or that I could find used in community bike shops. I powder-coated several of the used components silver so the bike wouldn't look like Johnny Cash's Cadillac. The only things I bought new for it were the ADVENT X brifter set, cable housings, the chain ring, bottle cages, and bar tape.

Front Bike Rack?

Hi,
Is that a front bike rack that doesn't require a side stud on the fork? What is the make and model?

Cheers
