It would make a dandy touring bike. If bar ends and a flat bar don't work for you maybe a butterfly bar? Not changing to drop bars would mean no change for the brake levers and maybe the shift levers too. It would ease the swap. Spend the money on some nice street tires, ones that can take some higher pressures. (worth it)!

Nice! You have mid-fork attachments for a front rack (IMO better than stressing your brake mounts). I agree that going to a butterfly or other trekking-type bar would make your life easier, as would going to smoother tires. Make sure to show us when it's finished!

Helped a friend with this one this past week with new cables, housing, shifters, stem adaptor and bars.

I had the seatpost way up so I could test ride.

Lowered half that distance it fits him well.

It's not complete yet and not sure if it is vintage… here are the before pics of the 2001 Trek 800 Sport I grabbed from FB Marketplace for $30. Pics are from the ad. I'm 99% sure it is all original including the Kenda tires.







Last year for the model and needs some love. It is the luck recipient of many take off parts on the sheft. After a good cleaning, it has received these upgrades:
- Trek platform, Trek saddle, and Tektro brakes from my wife's Verve 3.
- Specialized Crossroads 1.95x26 tires from my mountain bike.
- Quill stem adapter will be paired the Cannondale stem and handle bars from my Quick 1.
- New Shimano chain
- Still need BB and freewheel replaced. I might convert it to 3x8 since I have the parts.

My daughter had decided this is her bike after she outgrows her Quick 24.

Kind of reviving an older thread but hey - more pics of vintage MTB’s with slick tires is okay with me!

1991 Wicked Fat Chance:



1985 Fisher Montare:


Upgraded with trigger shifters and 8 speed cassette wheels


1985 Peugeot Canyon Express, now sporting the original fork converted to Threadless steer tube and fatter tires:



1996 Trek Singletrack 930:


I got rid of the crappy RockShox elastomer fork for this sweet Carver rigid with low rider mounts. It’s modeled after Kona’s legendary Project 2 fork and rides really nice.

As you can see, I really like swept back bars with a slight rise…

It's hard to beat an inkwell blue Trek from the mid '90s!

That looks like it could be a Specialized 650b Roll.

It's a 2012 Specialized Expedition, the predecessor to the Roll. I have more details of this build up on my blog.

Thank you for the clarification.





I have a 2021 I think it is Specialized Roll that looks somewhat similar.

I really enjoy riding my Roll.

Mine is heavily modified from its original configuration.

I've posted this in a few places so you may have seen my 1993 Mongoose IBOC Comp.
I did an almost-full resto-mod in 2020 during the pandemic. It's been a great urban cruiser/commuter.
