Having some issues with the fit on the black Trek. I think I simply need a shorter stem. I have been waiting for the Salsa CroMoto quill stem to come off of recall. I may just have to go another route....
Surly hub laced into the original Rigida rim with 27 x 1 1/4 Conty Ultra Sport tires.
I wanted to keep it looking like a classic-looking road bike, so I stripped all drivetrain, except for the cranks (170mm) and the brakes and replaced the hub and front chainring. I added the Bontrager Select lightweight fenders for spring riding.
She's a wee bit dirty right now, but really shines up nice!!!
First "ride" of the season....very short and very slow. I need to work the winter out of my bones. Plus I haven't really spent much time on the trainer - most of the exercise has been running and strength training.
Needless to say, the 520 is finished and in commuting mode...LOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT YEAR!!!!
Rode to the Y and back to work....a lot of clothes to carry along...changed 4 times in about an hour.
I need to get the new bars, brake levers and tires on the 520. It is going to be my spring bike this year. I may have to get some full fenders for extra protection. The Bontrager Satellites just won't cut it in the large puddles and horrible amounts of leftover sand and salt from the winter...
