This Space for Rent

The Trek in profile

The Trek in profile after going shopping for pumpkins and school lunch food for this week.

Yes, there’s massive toe overlap on this frame :-( If I ever get enough money (but not too much; if I got a bunch of money, I’d just buy a torch and braze up a one-piece longtail,) I’m going to shop around for some 160 or 165mm cranks (I’d love to get a 130/74 bcd crankset, but there aren’t many of them and they’re hideously expensive) and replace the urban double (42,40) I’ve got on the thing with a alpine double (42,34) or traditional compact double (50,34).

The horrible image quality is courtesy of the economy optics on my cellphone camera.
