    Mid to late 90's Trek 9xx series (930,950,970,990).............-img_1033.jpg
    I'm having problems uploading pictures, but this is the finished product.
    Disk brakes, 1st gen XTR crankset, 29'r conversion by removing the seat stay and chain stay bridges, Salsa fork, Biopace chainring. I had everything for this build just sitting around in my garage except for the Kenda Small Block 8 tires and the riser bar. I love that there are folks out there that appreciate these old Trek Singletrack bikes. I would like to think of this as sort of a restomod, combining old and new, for a one of a kind ride.

    I can't imagine those rack eyelets are strong enough to anchor a disc brake for very long but I am not an engineer. Removing both the seat and chainstay bridges is equally impressive.

    Please give us a ride report. Good on you for doing something outside the box.

    Always interested to see something different.

    Looking forward to ride report.

    Hope you have small feet...looks like a bit of toe overlap.

    The dropouts/eyelets are one piece forged steel beauties, so I'm not too worried about their strength. I was more worried about removing the bridges, but after some research, most custom frame builders leave them off unless they need a fender or brake mount (or kick stand :-)

    The toe overlap looks a lot worse in the photos than it really is. Shouldn't be a problem.

    Won't get too many miles on it till it warms up. Thats why i'm in the garage! Will post some ride impressions later.

    Thanks for the replies!

    That is a beautiful bike. I'm getting a 930 frame in 18" tonight - do you think the geometry is the same on both frames so I can do the same to mine? Have you ridden it yet? I'm wondering about long-term stability with the bridges removed.

    My Wife is still running her 95 970, nothing left on its original, sram x0 1x9 with a 48 chainring, and road tyres. It's a little over 10kg and just spins along. You can ride this thing all day. It's fun to watch her go past youngsters on their road bikes. Still trying to convince her to let me have the frame stripped and resprayed

    Hi guys,

    I built this 930 up recently to an SS cruiser, with nice components -
    Schwalbe Fat Franks, Azonic bar, matching tan grips and saddle, Specialized Stout hub, Singleator tensioner, Avid brakeset, etc. - but I do need to sell since have way too many bikes.

    I'd like to get $375 shipped cont. US if anybody is interested. It will go on eBay soon otherwise.

    Thanks for looking.

    Trying to get my 950 back up to moving after a newish 9 speed SLX shifter died. I'm not running the original wheelset as the axles were toast (I still have them though - DX hubs and matrix rims), but man even 9 speed gear is getting hard to find. I can't imagine how hard it is to keep a 7 speed drive train going. Going to go back to 3 rings up front too as I found the 1 ring to suck when trying to pull a kid trailer. Pics soon.

    Me, my wife, and my two kids all ride vintage MTBs with 3x7 Shimano drivetrains. I also have a '90s road bike with a 3x7 drivetrain.

    While you may not find them in stock at your LBS, 7-speed cassettes and chains aren't any more difficult to order than anything else at your favorite bicycle parts website.

    Here are twenty-nine different 7-speed cassettes at one site, for example:

    Figure this should be posted here.

    Early 90's Trek Singletrack action! Totally rad.

    Get out of the gutter and onto the mountain top.

    That was thoroughly enjoyable! Brings back fond memories of college and cracked Cannondales. Iíd have better off if Iíd started on the Bridgestones or Treks.

    It's BACK! The purpose here isn't any kind of restoration, but a usable steed made from parts I mostly had laying around, so sorry if that bothers any purists. As posted previously this was my first mtb and was bought new from Octopus Bicycles in Walnut Creek CA around '91 I think. It has seen lots of miles around the bay and in Chico during college. At one point one of the rear brake bosses was broken off due to very long mud ride down from the Mt. Diablo summit and the frame was sent back to Trek for repairs. I still have many of the original parts but they are toast - deore LX hubs laced to matrix rims with destroyed spindles, deore DX shifter combos that don't work at all, and the brakes too. I've tried several times to do something interesting with it over the last 10 years but it's never worked very well: single speed (dear god why - I drink way too much beer for that to ever be fun) and most recently a 1x9 due to lack of parts/lazyness. Current parts are no name wheels off a 2000 Trek 7500, new deore rear derailleur and shifters, old xt front derailleur. Still working on dialing the shifting in as the front derailleur seems like it is probably bent funny or something, or the newer rear hub is just wide enough that it fit but has screwed up the chainline. Itís workable for now though.

    Rode my 930SHX today. Over the years I have moved to FS, and rode the same park with my 930. I must have been an animal back in the day!
    It was an SHX, but I swapped out the fork for rigid, but I am looking for a Quadra 10 to make things right.

    Trek 950

    This is my "shopping" bike, a trek 950 singletrack from early 90's I believe

    It's converted to a single speed to do some small trips here in Amsterdam.
