1981 Trek 610 25 inch



Alex Rims r450 no name hub

Alex Rims r450 no name flip flop hub

Andel Crankset - Black - 165mm - 46t

Stock or used - to be replaced soon

New track pedals and 1/8'' chain

Surly 16T for 46/16 fixed and 46/17 for freewheel

Big old lugged Trek frame with Reynolds tubing. Bike was built locally by my friend Bobby Scott. Custom rattle can black paint job, new wheels, crankset, cog, etc. Stock bars and stem that I hope to replace with a longer stem as the bike feels a little short currently. Also considering a Brooks saddle to replace the current one which is just some used junker so I can ride the bike. I've been riding this to work everyday since I got it with no brakes but I'm considering a front brake soon since the route has some hills and the local drivers can't seem to see my all black ride. Probably go with a simple Tektro front brake. I have not tried the freewheel side yet and probably never will but its there if I want it. I love this bike and its a blast to ride.

The bike was riding a little odd and after posting the pictures it became clear that the front fork was bent - see the picture. I've been hunting for while now for a threaded fork with a long enough steerer tube to replace. I finally found one and will post a new picture once the fork is installed.


a real clean an nice bike

Thanks, not quite as clean

Thanks, not quite as clean now as I modified it a bit for my daily commute. See the new pictures - 0 is original build and the rest are as it stands now.

Added some rubber wrapping on the top tube so I can lean the bike on the bike rack and lock up without scratching the hell out of it.
Added a used front brake
Added rear brake lever on the right side (no brake) just for the hand position - cut off brake lever.
Added toe clips
Nitto stem with more length
