my Trek 620...awaiting only Cascadia fenders...and a couple of other
is a mid-'80s ('85?) Trek 620 that a previous owner had powdercoated
orange. I added the Resurrectio decals. Two things that stand out
about this bike are the 1963 Sturmey-Archer hub (the rear wheel
was given to me by Kent Peterson) and the Soma "Sparrow" handlebars.
The latter are surprisingly comfortable...and the former, combined
with a 20t cog and 50t chainring, works quite well, thank you very
had the original Jim Blackburn rack for the bike (also powdercoated
orange) but found that it interfered with the canti straddle cable,
so I replaced it with a brake-mount Jim Blackburn from the same
period. Doesn't look as integrated, but works better. I had hoped
to outfit the bike with a Velo Orange chainguard, but Chris tells
me that those max out with 48t rings, and, obviously, this one is
a little bigger. I may yet have to make something.
bike is currently wearing 32mm Kenda Kwick cross tires, but come
winter it will be outfitted with 35mm studded cheapies from Nashbar.
other thing that will be going on shortly is a B&M sidewall generator
and home-brew LED headlight.
I could afford another dynohub, but noo...
is my "other" bike--it goes the same places as my Kogswell D58,
but it has more tire clearance, so come ice, this will be the main
