Trek 7300 hybrid

Profile Design Air Wing bullhorns. Kore stem has been replaced with a 85mm that is way more comfortable.

SL1 Carbon

DT Swiss RR 1.1, Shimano low-end hub, laced with DT spokes

Mavic CPX 22 on a no-name hub, laced with DT spokes

I don't know. They look nice, but It'll soon have a new set that can take a big ring. BB is a Shimano regular thing.

Selle San Marco SKN — quite comfortable! Generic aluminum post.

46:12 at the high end. Rear derailleur only, 8 speeds.

The stem is really nice, but too long. At 140mm, I'm stretched way out. I've since replaced it with an 85. The rear wheel is dished a touch to the left, which seems beyond the capabilities of these spokes to rectify. Ah, well. I haven't had a roadie since I was 19 (that's 15 years ago) and am really enjoying the quick pickup and the carbon fork. So much better than my old Peugeot.

This bike was built using used parts wherever I could. It cost 350 bucks and a few weekends.

It weighs 21.5 lbs. Sweet!

Whoa! I am currently in the process of turning my Trek 7300 into an 8-speed. Thanks for the extra inspiration to finish the job.

Any progress?
