Super cool find, Smokinapankake. Thirty dollars? I love the high spoke count, triple rings and fenders.

Man, I'd make the front tube presta, add dual purpose pedals, a frame bag, and go for a long, long ride.

Nice find!

check out my cockpit ...






the gopro is attached to a blendr base piece without the $20 blendr gopro mount due to some smart thinking from the people working at Village Cycle Center. i could remove that cygolite, move the reflector a bit to the left, and use an blendr mounter headlight. would clean things up a bit, but that's a lot of money to spend. i'll wait until the cygolite stops working or we'll see which bikes get which lights when autumn roles around and i use my road bike for exercise again. that tiny light on camera right is the front of the glo/ember set. that's gonna go on my road bike because it has a blink mode that's not too bright, so i can have a normal headlight on low but a light blinking so pedestrians actually see me but don't complain about a too bright flashing light. because none of the headlights i've ever bought have a dim blink mode. right now it's on my commuter as life preserver in case my headlight goes out and i'm not home yet. i got three taillights -- the ember, a standard mounted on my seat stem or whatever that's called, and a the coolest light on my back fender (bontrager flare 1). only gotta run outta batteries riding home in the dark once before you make sure it doesn't happen again.

i have to contact gopro tomorrow. i got it today through facebook marketplace using paypal/usps. there's no serial number on it (they put it on the stupidest sticker). the exif data doesn't contain it. so i don't know what else i'm supposed to do except contact gopro and see if they have any way of checking if it's stolen. if it isn't or they say it's impossible to know, i hope they give me a new serial number

i like that blue 1x, @BoozyMcliverRot.

edit:
gopro said that the camera was not stolen to the best of their knowledge. the gopro rep said the serial number was on a plain sticker that was not flush with the surface, so a previous owner probably removed it in idle fidgeting or because they didn't like it there. they don't issue new serial numbers anymore -- i got that idea because on the gopro support forum that's how this situation always used to end -- because serial numbers are no longer needed for updates.

Thank you,I've since swapped the 11-42 wide range for a 11-27 for closer gearing.

2019 Trek FX3, taken last spring when I got her. I love the color, didnít think until after I purchased it but I have a pair of nikes shoes and a sweatshirt that match this color almost perfectly 😂! I have a clip on phone case so I can mount my phone on the handlebars.

Finally found a bike that I felt fits me well. My medium sized Crosstrail, while I enjoyed the bike, I had to make too many changes to come close to fit me. Found a close bike shop in PA that sells Scott Bikes. Originally was going for a Scott Sub Cross 20. But found that no one will receive those shipments in until late April. Then the shop owner showed me some bikes he bought from other stores whom were unable to sell them. He was offering these bikes at a significant discount. So, I'm now an owner of a Scott Sub Cross 30 size large. Strange how Scott's large size, fit me better than Specialized, Cannondale and Trek's large sizes, was too stretched out on those bikes. It was why I originally went with the medium Crosstrail. Only bummer is....it's black...once again, I bought a black and red bike. But had first ride today, 15 miles on C&O and it was so much more nice.

I have added since taking these pictures, my Selle Italia SMP saddle. The original saddle on the Sub Cross was actually comfy, until numbness started occurring. On Order, is a new Rockshox Paragon. My prior Rockshox, will be sold since it won't fit this larger bike. Steer tube was cut too short for this bike. Also since my ride today, switched the cassette to a better Shimano HG400. The original HG200 is geared weird and has these large jumps that I didn't like at all. Finally, put on my new Ergon GP-5's and am really happy with them. ....oh yea, I did buy some Topeak Mountain Bike fenders. But will install those another day.

Here's a picture of my 2018 Elite Roll and then my buddy rode it and like it so much he was able to find a 2018 Elite Roll but in a medium size so now we have twin Rolls. Funny we even have the matching Roll rack and the Rock Bros bag on them. He did change his pedals to the blue ones and I switched mine to the Shimano PD-MT50 Click R pedals.
Twin 2018 Elite Rolls. 1 Large and 1 medium.

Thanks for the complements Dave! Iíve got some changes in mind; just need to round up some hardware, but your suggestion is taken to heart. I plan to add some low rider racks to the front, a mini platform rack above the front wheel, and start doing some overnight camping trips. To that end Iíve added a much lower geared crankset to the front - a mid 90ís Sugino Impel crank with 20/32/44 teeth from the local bike co-op for touring duty. As someone here said somewhere: ďyou can never have too low of gears on a touring bike. The downhills will take care of themselves, but climbing can be a b!tch with a full loadĒ...

This bike is certainly growing on me!

1990 Trek 750

I own three of these. This is the latest acquisition, just built up and handed over to my adult daughter who outgrew the other 1990 17' bike (Intense Blue/White).

Picked this up yesterday and I'm so excited to take her out on the road. Looking to change out the tires to something wider (38 mm).

Had this one for a few years now; just never got around to taking any pics!
A 1994 Nishiki Optima XRS. Iíd never heard of this model and havenít found much in the interwebs... Anyway, only original parts left are the frame, fork, headset, seatpost, and wheels. But the rear has had an 8 speed free hub body swapped on for modern gearing options. Originally came with a mix of Shimano 400 & 700 CX components which I still have should I ever decide to go back...

So I saw a picture of a Scott Metrix 10 in this thread, and fell in love with it. I knew I had to have one so I set search, and was able to find a new one on the opposite coast. It just arrived so I am getting everything set up for her first ride!
