finalizing the Trek 950 Singletrack…

so here it is, all buttoned up, a few compromises, but with all the projects i have going on, that’s ok 😉 no headlight or taillight yet, but those will come eventually, dynamo front, probably battery rear to reduce all that wiring. let me know what you think! -peter

dueling treks, an update on both…

got a few more parts in the mail as well as installing fenders on the 750, more pictures of that in the next week or so, as well as some changes from the Bianchi’s kit. the 950 however is all ready to ride, minus a bottle cage, Chain Keeper, rim tape, tubes, tires, and grips. […]

getting ready for wheel building…

just setting up, should be getting my spokes today and that’s the last link in the chain as far as building up the wheelset… c’mon USPS!!! 😉 -peter

as always, parts in the mail…

so, it seems like this is a constant in my life, something to complain about right? 😉 but the majority of the components for the Trek 950’s wheelset are in the mail: some Velo Orange Diagonale 650b rims (36h as usual), Sapim double butted (14[2.0]/15[1.8]/14) spokes from Lee Kilpatrick (a great guy and always cuts […]

Brooks Swallow for the Trek 950…

well i finally broke down and bought the saddle i’ve always lusted after, a slick Black Brooks Swallow, and it looks damn fine on the Trek 950 Singletrack if i do say so myself 😉 other parts are starting to trickle in, with the snow pounding us this week the delivery’s have been sketchy at […]

got my 110mm 10? Thomson X4 stem, the Chris King 1 1/8 2Nut Conversion, and my M770 XT 11-34 cassette. it’s finally starting to look like a bike! figured i’d get a little more progress up, since i’ll be heading off to PA again come tuesday, wheelset ordering / building when i get back! 😀 […]

Trek parts coming together…

so the parts for the Trek 950 Singletrack build are slowly coming together: a 1 1/8″ Chris King Black Sotto Voce headset that i picked up used (still need the 2Nut conversion for it), those Paul Neo-Retro brakes for the rear that I’ve posted about before, a Thomson 29.8 Elite Black seatpost, some DT Swiss […]

Trek 950 rear brakes and Lily…

the Trek project is slowly progressing, some winter trip plans haven’t helped it’s forward momentum, but i’m excited for them none-the-less. what we have here though is a set of Paul Components Neo-Retro cantilever brakes. Eventually the Trek will follow in the footsteps of the Volpe Build with a pair of Paul Brake Boosters, one […]
