A very professional jersey with extra ventilation
A couple of pics from China Camp, really fun trails.
After an old stick-in-the-wheel-graceful-bail-out-just-before-total-wipe-out-instant-pinch-flatting, we spent the flat fixing time getting these pics of new/updated rigs. Here's Mark's modernized Ridgerunner with a new 7 speed 130 rear wheel, new Microshift rear der, new cockpit and Nitto Mark's front rack. The seat bag is a Heavy bag designed and made by Mark himself.
Heavy. We are trying to convince him to call this bag the "Dirt Owl."
Next up is Steven's big ol' Panasonic ATB. He thought it was an '85 but I'm gonna make an educated guess that it's an '84. See here. I'm not sure if this is a 23" or a 24" model, but one of the benefits of the early production mtbs is that they made very large frame sizes, rarely seen in later years.
Like may early mtbs this has the "wishbone" chainstays.
Cast long dropouts
wide lugged fork crown seems to be the same as used on the '84 Trek 830
Cast dropout with double eyelet
Lastly there's this little thing. I'm trying to learn how to braze and decided to make this little rack just to practice sticking things together, and cutting and filing. It's not a thing of beauty nor was it intended to be, just goofing around. The idea was a simple seat bag support, or really I suppose a place to stack other camping gear that would then serve as a seat bag support.
