An update on Olivia’s Trek Singletrack 990 Tourer…

OK, so I know it’s been awhile since I’ve either posted or talked about bikes. Think of it as a mild hiatus, a short rest stop to catch my breathe, lots has happened in-between and I’ll update over the next couple of weeks accordingly. Right now let’s focus on what’s in front of us, Olivia’s […]

nearly a year later, Trek 750 Multitrack…

so after nearly a year the here’ the Trek 750 Multitrack again, yes, one more iteration πŸ˜‰ I was never super keen on the wheelset I’d build previously, namely because it wasn’t really wide enough in the rear hub arena, so that had to change. the new wheelset is a combination of an SP PV-8 […]

finally! a Trek 750 Multitrack update…

so finally! haha, well, it’s still being built, i promise! πŸ˜‰ so what’s new? probably a lot, the Farfarer Touring front mini rack hasn’t been installed on a photo up on the blog so far, the crankset, the lack of a front derailleur (see crankset haha). the brakes are back on, i had removed them […]

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. […]

the Volpe all fender’ed up…

just some snaps of the Bianchi Volpe with some Velo Orange (VO) 45mm Stainless fenders, finally starting to look like a tourer πŸ˜‰ i have to say how enthused i am by the VO fenders, i’ve purchased them before and they’ve never ceased to impress me. the kit that comes with them has pretty much […]

planning out the pre-war Schwinn…

as you all may know i have a ’38 Schwinn straight bar that i am starting to modify and make into my town bike. so far the conversion has been very slow going, as i always seem to have another project that manages to creep in front of the poor old Schwinn. but now as […]
