Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Trek 930 Single Track - Gets Another Face Lift.

First it was a Free Bike, I converted to a Poor Mans Single Speed. Then I stripped it and powder coated it black. Then I swapped out somethings like the crank, and added and Eno in the rear.

Then the SS Trek 930 became my favorite bike to ride. So simple, one gear, no frills and no techie things to break. I even started leaving the bike computer at home and just ride to enjoy the outdoors.

My Full Suspension Trek Fuel Ex was replaced fully and for months all I'd ride was my SS Trek 930. The 930 fit me so perfect and I was seemingly content. Content for a little while until I decided I want to turn the 930 into a 1 x 9. Well I fidgeted with it to work with my Eno SS Cranks and couldn't get it to work so I decided to piece it together with parts from my Trek Fuel Ex. Right now, its a 1 X 9 but I may just make it a 3 X 9 and race it this November.

I absolutely love this bike. I bought a Trek 930 about six weeks ago and now it's my main means of transportation because I just love riding it. Mine is also converted to a single speed. I hope to follow in your footsteps by giving my bike face lifts as I go along as well.

Gorgeous bike my friend!

Hey brother, I've got a trek 920 I'm building up and have a couple of questions if you'd be so kind. What type of fork are you using and what size and cassette?

Thanks for you time.

As a single speed it was a 34t. As a geared its 22 x 32 x 42. I love this bike and I've raced it five times so far.
