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 […]

Olivia’s Touring Bike, 1991 Trek Singletrack 990…

so this is one of my latest “un-published” projects, well, the only one, haha, this one being for my girlfriend Olivia. all of these shots were done on my new Sony A7R, so cut me some slack 😉 it’s going to take a bit to learn all of the functions (as I just got the […]

mixte became a Kogswell P/R…

sooo, that whole Soma Buena Vista mixte thing? um… yeah… just kinda shifted 😉 it became a much cooler Kogswell P/R (Porteur/Randonneur), thankfully all of the parts (excluding brakes) were a straight swap. right now it’s kitted out as such (front to back): Minoura King Carrier Front Basket/Rack Large, 2x Schmidt E6 dynamo headlights, Velo […]

racks for the Trek 750 Multitrack…

this time around with the touring build i decided to go the Tubus route, with a Logo for the rear and Duo for the front (both imported from the UK in Silver). the logo in the rear is going to a bit to get used to, as it has a MUCH smaller top platform than […]

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 […]

planning out a mixte…

so it seems that i have a mixte build-up in the works, someday i’ll get back to the pre-war schwinn i swear! anyhow, back to the subject at hand, a mixte build, what’s a mixte you ask? well the late Sheldon Brown explains it as such, A style of lady’s frame in which the “top tube” consists […]

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 […]

the Univega’s new path…

so after a lot of thought on the Univega it was decided that i simply had to do something with the frameset, as i got it for far too cheap just to sell it. but what to do with it? well… since the original plan was to build a bike that could do more than […]

the ’38 schwinns progression…

(a photoshop job using one 650b wheel, sorry joseph 😉 ) so i’ve been bouncing from idea to idea about what i want to do with my ’38 Schwinn Straightbar 26″ guys bike, and i think i’ve finally settled on one. it’s going to end up something fairly close to what it originally was, an […]
