PM me and I will send you my 3 photos...
Just open a SmugMug account. You can setup a trial account and see how it goes.

Here's my '09 Trek 7.2 on a commute home from an overnight shift. It's on a local bikepath that runs through some marshes. I'd like to toss some Trekking handlebars on it sometime, as soon as I can figure what the clamp size is...

Fun fact: Shortly after this, I realized my water was tasting funny because the way that orange water bottle is constructed allows mold and gunk to accumulate on the inside lid with no way of cleaning it. Needless to say, I don't think i'll be buying a Nathan water bottle again. Learned my lesson there.lol

Considering it's my only way of being on two wheels at the moment, it's my baby. If you can guess the nick name of the bike, you win an e-cookie.

It was like, under the foam mouthpiece thing. As far as I know, they don't sell replacements for it and no matter what I did, I couldn't get in there well enough to clean it. I suppose pipe cleaners would've worked, but come on, who wants to break out the cleaning kit to wash out a water bottle... lol Just seems a little too complicated.

Anyway, keep the awesome bike pictures coming.

Not sure exactly how the bottle/top is configured, but a little bleach in water will take care of mold. Add a little bleach, fill with water, let soak, rinse well and dry if possible.

Yes, great bike photos, thanks everyone.

Me too! I was bummed when the size just wasn't going to work out... but that's when the RockCombo came along

Selling the 720 if anyone is interested...

New Nicolai Argon FR thanks to James Renazco.


I'm running old school 8speed for dependability.


Note: I realize how silly it sound to run 8speed's this days so I update the whole drive train to 9speed XTR, still dependable plus I gain two teeth in the back (34T)

I always protect the chainstay, is just cheap insurance, usually use a "tuffy" (tire liner) but i'm out of them, so i'm been using "vulcanize" tape that self bond making it a solid tube, plus it adapts to the contour of the tube much better as you can see.

I know I'm showing my age but all this talk of Old School 8 speed raises a wry smile. The Condor Italia 531 that was built for me back in 1977 is, I guess, firmly "Old School" and is 10 speed - 2 front and 5 rear!! I sourced bits of it new from all over the place Cinelli Bars, Campag rear, Suntour front, Dura-ace C/set, Laprade seat pillar, Campag LF hubs, Mavic rims, Pro-Ace pedals. etc etc. Its quite the franken-branded bike!

Inaugural trail ride on the 29er, man this kind of bikes are amazing, even in really muddy conditions I have traction to spare even running "Skinny" tires, really fun and so supple.
