Road Bike Commuter Project 2

I’ve got the old Trek 420 completely stripped of all its components. The last part that needed removing was one of the rack bolts. It was seized into the frame. I tried everything and had to take the last resort of drilling it out and chasing the threads. That took care of the problem.

As you all may be aware, my wife has been raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training to run the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco.

Road Bike Commuter Project

I picked up an old Trek 420 road bike from the Bike Shop recently with the goal of turning it into a better commuter than the one I’ve been using. My old commuter is just an old mountain bike with some lights, reflective tape, and a horn. Not especially fast on the road.
