Plan now hatched for this. Will get free-hub changed to 9-speed(and wheel trued),fit Sora mechs taken off other halfs Liv and get some Sora trigger shifters. Chainset will be the s/h FSA one which I've just taken off the other Trek with some fresh chainrings(in silver hopefully) and a new 9-speed cassette and chain. Actually rode it today and even with the nasty grip shifters it was fun to ride.

Bought a 7300 in 2000 to train for and ride on an Arthritis run in Oct. 2001 from San Francisco to San Diego. Training put 2500 miles on it with no problem. I still own it and after some R&R am giving it to my son.

I made it to just north of Malibu, cruising about 15 mph when the bolt holding the seat to the mounting sheared off and I went down like a ton of bricks. Luckily I bailed to the right into gravel rather than into traffic. We had an emergency vehicle for adjustments and hauling and they got my machine working again (with only 8 gears) enough to finish what was mostly flat road. I dont know if the bolt was defective or not proper grade, but it was original. I do remember at end of the first days ride, my knee was hurting so bad I was wondering if I could finish this. I spoke to someone about it and advised me to see about a seat adjustment, which I did and my problems were solved. After so long I just realized this could have been the cause....overtightened??

Never encountered trouble for 3 years of using this. I love the high-pressure thinner wheels the coasting ability is insane. Masonry Contractor

Nothing to complain about.

Very durable bike on trails with comfort along city streets. I've had the bike since 2004 and very pleased.

Heavy bike due to the aluminum frame and the twist shifters need replacing over the years. The front shock absorbers have limited distance vs. mountain bikes but do the job on bike trails.

Durability, comfort, ease of maintenance. I have this bike since 1998, ride it to work on weekdays (about 25 miles/day) and some easy road rides on weekends all year. Also sometimes i use it to pull a trailer (when travelling). Though through the years I had changed many parts, some original ones are still on (front derailer, brake levers, SRAM twist shifter and of course the lifetime warranty bikeframe). The endurance is pleasing.

Not as good as specialized bikes for their respective roles, and a bit on the heavy side.

This bike is like a Timex watch I have hanging on my handlebar, It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I’ve had a couple specialized good bikes of course but this one just has something special. I used it as my commuter bike in Fort Lauderdale for two years in the city and recreational riding in the evening because I hate driving in heavy traffic in cars. They just don’t quit I have beaten this bike to death and I can get on it and ride 20 miles without blinking. I’m sure there are other bikes out there that are better quality and may handle better blah blah blah but for commuting and traveling and using it as your main source of transportation I couldn’t imagine a better bike. And I love the high-pressure thinner wheels the coasting ability is insane.

It’s hard to give this point that I’m going to speak of as a weakness because it’s kind of like asking for your cake and eating it too. But my last wonderful point was the fender high pressure tires and that’s the only thing that has a drawback in certain areas because when I hit construction zones or have to jump off the sidewalk or jump off the highway and run through some dirt or hit rough terrain I do have an issue and hop off and walk it across sometimes, BUT If I did have the larger knobby tires then of course I couldn’t write the raving review in reference to the coasting and speed!

I’ve had this bike for years. I needed a bike that could do it all and this is it. I put a basket on it to cruise to the beach on the boardwalk and strip it down for 30 mile road runs. I can’t say enough about it’s versatility. I love the height and upright seating it affords Stem, bars etc have great adjustment potential. Suspension is not bad. I beat this thing up and it comes back season after season.

Maybe a little heavy but maybe not for all it can do.

An excellent commuter bike. Suitable as a hybrid, I’ve taken it on bike trails here in Austin, and it’s held up well. It has a rather unique (in my experience) shock absorbing set of forks, where the top piece of the forks has a pneumatic shock absorber. I’m overweight, 5’8” & 195 lbs., so it fully compresses when I mount it.

I am not sure but I don’t think the shock-absorbing forks are adjustable.

Handles uneven road surfaces well. Comfortable to ride. Corners well at high speed. Three front sprockets gives you plenty of peddling space.

Can't compete with performance of a true road bike.

I had this bike since 1997. The cables and front derailleur did rust out but I attributed that to wear and tear. If you can work the gears effectively and it's an easy ride on rolling hills. I am keeping this bike but I want to upgrade to an Emonda for more precision performance on the road given the peddling effort.

Similar Products Used:

Light weight. Durable. Shimano derailleur, good quality.

Narrow tires not good for transit streetcar tracks. Not good for heavy duty off road mountain biking.

Decent light weight, good quality. But only reasonably good for town and off road. Wary of street car tracks. And not equipped for back trails. Needs wider and heavy treads.

Durable bike, very comfortable to ride.

Original twist shifters

I have owned two of these 7300s. Four if you count the wife's bikes too. No real trouble out of any of them (the original two were donated to our daughter and son in law). All 4 are still in use today. I replaced the original twist shifters with SRAM paddle shifters and have never looked back. I am a road bike rider and I use this for training. I do this simply because, the bike is a bit heavier than a road bike and the ride position provides a bit for wind resistance than the posture on a road bike. That means, you have to push a bit harder. That said, the bike performs very well for the price paid and I could not be happier. It fits my needs better than anticipated. Overall, I think this is a great product at a great price.

Star Trek: What Does NCC Stand For?

USS Enterprise traveling through space

On "Star Trek," every Federation starship receives a name and a registry number, made up of a prefix and a numeral. The starship Enterprise , the show's most famous Constitution-class heavy cruiser, boldly goes where no man has gone before bearing the registry number NCC-1701. Although "NCC" is by far the most common Federation prefix, there's unfortunately no in-canon explanation for what it signifies.

Production designer Walter M. "Matt" Jefferies has said both that he came up with the prefix by combining the American civil aircraft prefix "NC" with the Soviet aircraft prefix "CCC" and that the second "C" was added for artistic flair. "Since the 1920's [sic], [']N['] has indicated the United States in Navy terms, and [']C['] means 'commercial' vessel. I added an extra [']C['] just for fun," Jefferies is quoted as saying in "Star Trek: The Original Series Sketchbook."

Meanwhile, "Star Trek" author and illustrator Franz Joseph claims in his 1975 reference book "Star Trek Blueprints" that "NCC" stands for "Naval Construction Contract." Now, Joseph's work isn't considered canonical, but since no creator officially attached to "Star Trek" has ever offered anything better, many Trekkies — and even some associated novelists — tend to accept this explanation.

Jefferies wasn't too bothered by its origin

In 2000, almost 40 years after he slapped those three befuddling letters on the hull of the USS Enterprise, Matt Jefferies spoke with "Star Trek: The Magazine" to clear up a rumor propagated by the Experimental Aircraft Association that the registry number NCC-1701 was inspired by his 1935 WACO Model YOC aircraft, which bears the registry NC-17740. In truth, he didn't buy the plane until 1968, so it couldn't have inspired the Enterprise, although he admitted that he never tried too hard to dispel the myth.

These are not the words, nor the timeliness, of a man who genuinely cared what Trekkies think. If Jefferies wanted to demystify "NCC," then he would have done so. By his own account, at least one of the three letters is present because he thought it was "fun," so it's possible that he never even applied words to them. There are a lot of questionable things we ignore in the "Star Trek" franchise , and maybe this too is okay to let pass by without further thought. Jefferies certainly did.

His most memorable TV role from the era came in 1967, when he was cast in the Season 2 “Journey to Babel” episode of Star Trek as Thelev, a duplicitous Orion agent disguised as an Andorian ambassador. His mission to destroy the Enterprise was unsuccessful, but he did manage to wound William Shatner’s Captain James T. Kirk with a poison knife.

On the big screen, O’Connell was most familiar for frequent, if occasionally small and often adversarial, roles in the 1960s and ’70s films of his friend Clint Eastwood, including Paint Your Wagon, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Every Which Way but Loose and its 1980 sequel Any Which Way You Can .

Born May 12, 1929 in Los Angeles, O’Connell served in the Korean War as a 1st LT in the 45th Infantry. He received many decorations including the Bronze Star.

    38 5 comments Best Add a Comment John_Valuk • 2 yr. ago I bought this 730 Multitrack new at a local bike shop in 1995.

    They usually list on Craigslist here in Colorado for $75-$125, depending on condition and components. EDIT: If you got new tires, new cables, a tune-up, wheels trued (wheels don't wobble) and replaced components, then you didn't come away too bad.
