    New to me bike-Trek

    Removed the reflectors (4) and a few add ons to make it a more comfortable ride. A few vintage parts. Bar ends, longer Ritchey Pro 150mm stem, flat pedals, rear V-brake booster. Need to find another brake booster for the front.

    New to me bike-Trek

    To save my GT STS, I picked up a cheap rider that I can thrash on and not worry about damage, $40. I think I did well. I can replace/upgrade as needed. 2008 Trek Series 3 3700 Alpha. All original, unmolested.

    Diamond Back Ascent 1994

    Yeah, I was thinking it was a 1987 with the chainstay U-brake. Unfortunately, the seller tried to jack the price up to $75 after saying we had a deal for $50. He said someone else offered $75 and I could have it at that price....sorry/ No can do for a 30+ year back -up bike. On the hunt again

    Looks like I'm gonna grab this one for $50. Gonna change the saddle, maybe flat handlebars and bar ends(?), and slap some new(er) flat pedals on.

    GT STS Formula Disc Brake Swap?

    What are my options for different disc brakes on a GT STS DH? What would I be looking for? I can't seem to get any brake pressure in the factory Formula brakes. No major downhill riding. I see a few sets on ebay by Zoom? I believe they would suffice for my type of riding? I've bled and 99%...

    Motiv Pioneer?

    Looking at an inexpensive rider to,...well....ride, while I finish getting my GT ride ready. It would be a street rider. I'm liking the thumb shifters and whitewall tires. Bar ends and toe clips would be perfect. I'm guessing very early 80's? Any info? I can't find anything. I'm pretty sure...

    My GT STS DH project

    Hello...Anyone have a link to anyone manufacturing the travel chips for STS/LTS trunnion mounts? Seems like someone could machine these from Delrin or brass? Could these be 3 d printed? I'm looking for spares..just in case.
