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

an updated Gunnar Sport…

so i felt that the Gunnar Sport was falling a bit behind on component quality so i decided to boost it’s confidence a little 😉 new on the bike are the Paul Components Racer M brakes, the Paul Funky Monkey hangers (1″ up front and 30mm in rear). i also decided to swap saddles with […]

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 […]

more fun with the Trek 950…

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 950 update…

parts are starting to add up, finally it’s staring to resemble a bike! waiting on an XT M770 11-34 cassette, an XTR M791 GS rear derailleur, the Chris King 1 1/8 2Nut Conversion, and the Thomson 110mm x 10? X4 stem. next on the list, building the wheelset… mmm, sexy 650b’s…. -peter

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 […]

a new project for me…

yup, a new project, an NOS ’92 Trek 950 Singletrack!!! yes, that’s right, a brand spanking new, never built up 1992 Trek 950 Single track, a sexy black with logo’ed lugged True Temper OX Comp II frame with the Tange triple butted Cro-Moly Big Fork, droool!!! more to come, but it’s going to be my […]
