Hello from Detroit


Hello,
I’m building a few different bikes at the moment, are they ever really finished? I have a hardtail, a couple hybrids, a cruiser, a road bike, and a touring rig. I’m probably forgetting one or two.
The one I’m most excited about at the moment is my ‘85 Trek 620 Cirrus. It’s got character for days, but I want to take it from 27’ and 28mm to something wider like a 35+mm range. I love the Phil hubs so I’m thinking new Sapim spokes and some rhinolite hoops. Also needs some love in the cockpit, maybe a stem and handlebars, one step at a time.
I’ll share some pictures of my projects after my newbie status is lifted.
Thanks.
Jason

No doubt about it!
I love riding through Detroit, my family has been here since 1858. It is an outstanding place when you know where to go, and when you get there the right people know you.
What a beautiful shot, your bike is awesome.
Thanks MRV
