Bike Diary 5-6-2011

16th ride in to the office, 2729km total

This was my first distance ride on my new-old Trek 770.  This 1984 model bike I picked up on craigslist and parted out most of the Campy Super Record bits to finance setting it up somewhat more modern.  The bike did quite well.  The low-light was the left Suntour retrofriction shifter couldn't hold the Suntour front derailleur in place.  Out of the saddle in the big ring, the front der would begin to rub on the high side.  I'll need to try a different washer configuration to get that taken care of.  Otherwise, I think that's going to be a good bike for me.
