Snow again….

Together…. using nothing but parts from my used parts box, the Trek 930 I bought in 1994 is back on the road. As Jeremy Clarkson said on Top Gear, “I am genuinely pleased with it.”

Lots of mixing to make it work. All I had was a tapered square bottom bracket so I had to use an old Ultegra  600 crank, the gearing is too tall for real mountain biking, but bombing around is fun. Set up as 1×9.

I even got to use the Coda brakes that a former riding partner gave me in 1995. I must say, cantilever brakes still suck. I might take the V brakes from Deb’s bike and give her the crappy brakes… she will never notice….
