:welcome: Welcome to the forum! A very nice collection of bicycles. I keep looking for an old steel bike with down tube shifters for a "Sunday" bike. I've owned some fine ones and should have never sold them.
RESIDENT GRUMPY OLD MAN.

Thanks. I'm currently looking for some old lugged trek frames to build a custom bike. Thinking 10 speed with down tube shifters and 50-60 mm carbon tubulars. I'm also looking for a Look 595 frame a Trek 5.9 ssl frame and a cannondale system six frame all in a 56 if anyone has any. Just let me know. Thanks.

You should put those spinergy wheels on the conquest with a set of the green Michelin Mud tires and get a whole bunch of bright anodized parts to make a 90's MTB aesthetic SSCX racer. :up:

The thing on the seat post of the R600 is one of those seat post water bottle holders with the bottle holders taken off and 2 super bright led lights that flash in their place. The bike is my "to work" bike and seeing how I live in Oklahoma City, one of the most bike unfriendly areas in the US, I want as many lights on my bike as I can get since my morning commute is at 5:30 in the morning!!!

That is seriously cool. Give us the details of the battery pack, switching, and LED strip.

It's still in the testing phase. The lights are just the led strips for your car that your local auto zone store carries. The batteries and switch are part of the "press to test" that is in the packaging so you can play with them in the store. I figure the batteries will last for some time since it's just leds. As far as the switch goes, well I haven't got on that is a press on/off switch. The switch that is has has to be held down to operate. So.... like I said still in the works.

BTW, the front tire is mounted backwards. Assuming they are 4000's, they are directional. Don't really know if that makes a difference.

Butcher, it makes no difference at all. Continental put an arrow on them because they kept getting questions about which way to mount them. In reality there is absolutely no difference except the visual effect.
