Old Bike New Life

I’ve had this Trek Singletrack 930 from Craigslist for almost 2 years now but for the last 8 months it’s been sitting around gathering dust after switching all the parts to a Soma Saga. It’s really kind of a mis-mash of new and old parts, color-coordination, and just parts I had handy.

It was a great touring frame for the time, but now I want to breath new life into it as a Gravel Grinder slash Randonneur bike to complete the Velo Dirt rides.

I’m very eager to try the Oregon Outback trail. Although I waited too long to register for the 2014 “Race”, I still plan on riding the trail solo at some point in the year.

  • Trek Singletrack 930
  • 170mm Square Taper Crankset 26/46t
  • Kore Race+ Red Anodized Cantilever Brakes with 50mm Shoes
  • WTB All-Terrain Tires
  • Tektro Brake Levers
  • WTB Silverado Saddle
  • Clarks Red Cables & Housing (Fashion First!)

So far after several hundred miles of riding around town and along the Columbia River, the bike feels quite comfortable. Let’s see how it does on a Century.
