Bike Of The Week - Pete

“I own a base model Trek “mountain” bike that I got for my 14th birthday back in the early 1990s. At almost 30 years old, only the frame, front derailleur, and shifter are original. In 2018, I replaced the original fork with a Crust Clydesdale.”

Bike Of The Week - Pete

“I use this bike for errands and grocery store trips. Before the pandemic, I used the bike to take my oldest to school in a WeeHoo trailer on my way to work. In 2019, we used it to complete the 2019 Disaster Relief Trials. Good times!”
