purple ano bolts taken off another klein bike i had a bunch of 3dv parts. stripped that bike a put the bits on the trek. rather have the bolts alu color but was just to lazy to deanodize them. may still do it
the ride is strictly a commuter to and from work. RT 6 miles
also rode around with kids around hood
ride is great but i need to get used to the rigid exotic fork. i havent ridden without suspension in a long time
Seems like the time money and effort it took to track down and build up your dream bike from decades past deserves better than commuter duty. But I guess that's why I ride a 99 hardrock to work (really ugly bike, but I don't worry about theft).
I still have a 95 Trek 9900 that gets regular trail duty. It was the most expensive bike I've ever purchased and probably ever will purchase since I'm a bit more frugal these days. It performs real nice with a modern 80mm fork on it.
