Show us the bike (kidding). Take it to a bicycle shop and ask them how to adapt it for a lack of pre-drileld holes.

Polish finish, may not be original finish. Serial #I17121105 on underside of bottom bracket on non drive side, also on drive side #TBI -0405

This is from the
Trek Aluminum Series 420 The model is TBI 0405.
Nice bicycle, but I wish they had included a chain guard as standard.
They were gray paint with a red TREK logo on the drop tube in the original finish.

I have a Trek F600 folding bike. Where can I find replacement parts?

Depends on what parts you need. Many parts on your bike, such as the shifters, derailleurs, etc. are standard. If you are looking for specific parts for the frame and such, you will have to go to a Trek dealer. That particular bike has been out of production, so parts may be scarce.

Hi, I owned a 2011 Trek 7.6FX. So far the bike has been good and in stock condition but I was wondering: 1. If I could use a fatter tires like LT2 or LT3 if I were to hit the track. The 700x28c...

"Track"??? Do you mean "trail", as in REAL off-road rocks-n-roots singletrack?

Ah, the 'compromise' bike dilemma. This is NOT a mountain bike frame nor are the wheels designed for hard hits. But you could try to make it work for light-duty trails.

1. They make all kinds of rubber for 29ers which use the same rim size. Search for 29er tires.

The frame and fork may limit how large a tire will have clearance. Being totally stiff (unsuspended) the off-road ride would be rough by today's MTB standards. Think: loose fillings and blurred vision, plus a lot of standing to survive the ride. That takes energy. But then there are those who have intentionally bought 'niners without suspension for some reason.

A REAL mountain bike would be a better choice, just as a REAL road bike might be for that activity if sustained speed is ever a going to be a goal.

2. Avid's make good brakes AND levers. Which end is the problem, I wonder. Pads also play a major part in stopping power.

What kind of headset do i need for a 2011 felt q520. Have a cane creek on an old trek and thought I would switch them over, but the felt head tube seems to be a little bit wider in diamater.

Your Felt q520 uses a Semi-Integrated 1 1/8 inch headset. These headsets are known under various names such as zero-stack and low-profile. The cane creek on your old trek is most likely a conventional threadless headset. The standards are not compatible.

Please purchase a semi-integrated 1 1/8 inch headset and have a bike shop install it for you as pressing the cups into and out of the frame requires special tools and if done improperly can destroy the frame.

Changing shifters on my Trek 1400

Of course it can be converted to anything you want - at a price and with some effort. I recently converted a vintage 1984 Cannondale road bike from 2x7 Suntour downtube to full Campi 2x9, carbon crank, yada yada. I like riding it as much as any of the other 3 road bikes I have.

I sourced most of the parts for my various bike projects on eBay. If you're looking for vintage or retro, that's where you go. Just avoid buying cassettes that have been 'slightly' used.

Assuming your bike is still an original 7- or 8-speed, and you want to keep it that way, you may have to hunt around for compatible shifters. Upgrading from 7- or 8-speed to 9 may be the way to go, but then you'd have to get a new cassette (minimum) or a new wheel, or it may not fit into your frame's rear dropouts as the axle spacing crept up over the years with the addition of cogs.

Consider all the individual steps conversion may require; and if each requires yet another modification or encounters a dead end, like frame spacing. At retail prices for parts these days it might be more economical to get a new bike. OTOH, there's no matching the satisfaction of keeping a favorite steed active and doing the work yourself.

Cannot fit to my Trek 820 due to

You have to use a different fork. There are three standard steering tube sizes: 1"; 1.125"; 1.5". The 1" is found on budget bikes, older bikes and some cruiser/hybrid bikes. 1.125" is the most common size and is also usable on 1.5" head tubed bikes using reducing headsets. 1.5" is found on heavy-duty mountain bikes and some carbon fiber road bikes, although its use is increasing in popularity.
The point is, you can sometimes convert down, but never up. You have to source a different fork.

Sorry, mate
