This is my beater bike. It's a Trek 720 frame that I rode across the US. It's gotten pretty scratched up over the years. I touched it up with this really ugly blue paint and the bar has black and white tape. I figured I'd uglify it some before using it as a lock up bike. It has a Dura Ace crank with a Sugino 75 chain ring, Lyotard rat trap pedals, surly hubs laced onto campy omega rims, SR stem and bars, Avocet II saddle, modolo cantis and Suntour cyclone levers, and a stronglight headset (still good after many, many years of riding)
