My work on the Univega Mixte is on hold till next payday, new size 13 shoes for my enormous 14 year old son took up most of my extra cash (I get paid once a month). I had nearly forgotten the Trek 930 mountain bike hanging on a rack in the garage. I bought this bike from the original owner back in 1999 when I was living in Abilene, Texas. It was for my oldest kid but we never got to do much riding together. I then gave this bike to my brother-in-law a couple of years later. He was living in Kansas at the time and was having financial difficulties. This bike ended up being his main form of transportation. He and his family moved to Fort Worth about a year ago, I ended up with the bike once again. I replaced the tubes and rode it around the front yard a few times. That was the extent of my riding this weekend.
It was tough finding photos of a 1995 Trek 930. I figured I'd throw these photos up here as a public service.
Excuse the grime, this bike is in need of some serious cleaning.
7spd cassette, STX cranks, STX derailleurs, Alivio hubs, and lots of Trek's Matrix stuff
The bike was originally equipped with cantilever brakes. I switched them out soon after I bought the bike. I'm debating whether I should restore the cantilever brakes.
I'm not 100 per cent sure what I'm going to do with this bike but I've got the urge to replace the grip shift stuff with thumb shifters. I've got a pair gathering dust in a box somewhere.
