Why did you change a handlebar. Don`t you like the classic shape?

I wasn't aware that a DA 7800 SS rear derailleur could handle a 28 tooth cog--does it rub the top pulley?

It did, but my frined put on a nut on that srew that distances the rear deraileur from the frame.
I hope my words are understandable. I can make a pic for better understanding :)

The older Treks look so much better than the modern ones with the high head tube and sloping compact top tube. Great looking bike.

I agree. Nice touch with the silver seatpost clamp as well...

Agree. I never liked them much until Daddy-yoyo posted his on here. This is up there IMO. Reminds me of Lance's Trek when he had the LW's with tan sidewalls although that one was silver as opposed to blue. Very nice build indeed.

Thanks for the nice comments guys!
It also looks good because you helped me to decide while building it together ;)

That's a great side shot. I'm actually about to go from compact bars to traditional.
