i'm not much of a trek guy, mainly because i don't like their logo for some reason, but that is an amazing build. cheers to your hard work.

thanks guys for the positive feedback.

I had Onza Titaniums BITD, so thats what I needed...but NOS ones are over $100, and hard to find...so I put 2 and 2 together..

-beat up Onza titaniums: $15
-NOS Onza Steel...$15..

total$30!

now thats putting your thinking cap on. Bravo. The spindles, no doubt, shave the most weight off.

great work!
what you did with those pedals is a great example of high end low cost building! I like this way better than just spending the 100 dollar on nos Ti versions!
