Nothing fancy. Trek 830 (’91) Been sitting in the garage for 4 years. Stripped the gears, shifters off and now a ss rig. Need to get smaller chain ring bolts so I can take off the big ring off. New saddle and a 36 tooth ring is in its future. From garage dust to trail dust.
My Bike is a 2003 Trek Liquid 10. I’d hardly call it a 10 version since a lot of the parts have been replaced. Rims, Grips, Tires, Handlebars, Front Forks, Pedals, Seat, etc. Graphics are custom – I was surprised Trek went cheap and just did vinyl graphics rather then painting their brand on the bike. Fine by me I pulled off all the boring art and slapped my own on. I guess a lot of bike mfgs are probably going this route if Trek started doing this in 03. I’d like to dump that LX rear derailer next it works poorly.
How do you like the Crankbrothers wheels? Doing a build of my own.
They have been on my Nomad for 2.5 seasons now. They are a stiff wheel with very decent engagement and hold their trueness very well. No problems with the bearings or rear hub (as others have had in the past with their Cobalt model). Only damage so far are 2 smallish dents in the rear rim (even with the dents I’m still having no problem running tubeless) and one broken spoke after my hanger broken and my mech went into the spokes.
I have the same bike and love it but it needs some upgrades (fork,pedals,…). What upgrades did you make?
Manitou Tower Pro fork
Dmr V12 Mag Pedals (though I also have a set of crank brothers candy 2 pedals)
Giant Connect SL seatpost
upgraded bottom bracket
WTB Pure V saddle
Stans Tubless setup
Odi / Troy Lee Designs Lock On Grips
Geax Saguaro TNT tires
Easton EA70 Monkeybar Handlebar
swapped out the Giant Sport stem for a more aggressive one. Not sure on the model, but the colors sure do match!
I really want to swap out the shitty Sram X4 setup and at least get a 3×9 or 2×10, then probably replace the disc brakes. Pretty much waiting on it to totally go. I would definitely swap out that fork! Taking off that boat anchor SR Suntour fork shaved 2 pounds off. Its a great bike to upgrade the geometry is almost identical to the XTC 29ers, but yahhh really shitty components. Just upgrade as they break, that’s what I did.
Hi, newbie here looks like a great forum . I’ve been into mountain biking for some time , mainly riding on the road bike trail to help me train for moto-cross. I’m going off road this year so I picked up this GT LTS in ok condition and did a total restoration . I’m loving this old school Badass GT . enjoy pics D Hill
