I currently own two bicycles. The first is a Trek Navigator 3.0, the bike I first learned to ride on. I now use it as a commuter, with a rear rack, panniers, and handlebar bag. His name is Excelsior, named after the Longfellow poem about a young man carrying "the banner with the strange device."



The second is a Trek 7.5 fx, named Roark, after the hero of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. Those who may have read the novel will recall that Howard Roark was uncompromising and refused to design buildings as others did, but instead had form follow function. I can't compromise and have my bikes set up like other bikes; they have to function with my form. Also, it's a red bike and Howard Roark was nicknamed "Red" in the novel.



Roark doesn't have a rack yet. I'm having him set up with a rack, fenders, and a 36 spoke wheelset for the cross-country tour I'm riding in 2008.

I only have a couple of pictures of my main road bike, a 1989 Trek 1000. Here you go:

1-hour after hitting a deer going about 32 mph last May


Me, at the finish line of the Bouler Bicycle Classic century in September


Notice the nice, big, heavy, chrome-plated forks. I was too attached to the bike after the accident to replace it, since the frame held up so well to such abuse.

I've searched everywhere, and I can't find your thread about the accident. Have a link? Or maybe some more pics of bike (from the side) and a brief synopsis of the experience. Sorry to hijack. Back to your Treks (sorry I don't have one to contribute).

Sorry, I won't own a TREK. Dealer thinks they are BMW or Lexus and snobbery abounds.

I bought my bikes from a dealer that likes people.
