    1989 Trek 970

    18" 1989 Trek 970. Mix of vintage, newer, and newish components.

    Still dialing things in, but so far so fun.

    Frameset, along with many of the parts were a gift from a friend. Thanks C!



    Breaking it in on the Taconic Crest trail this weekend up here in the NE, and then off to Colorado next week to ride Kokopelli Trail!

    Very nice! Great looking bike.

    We experienced beautiful days and cold nights on the Kokopelli this past March and again on White Rim this past weekend, so prepare accordingly.
