    bike opinion Trek 1000

    bike opinion Trek 1000

    I found a Trek 1000 for a good price. The picture shows an original fork but it looks more vertical than many other bikes I've seen. Is this bike known for being twitchy? or is the picture just misleading, or perhaps angle of fork isn't really a concern. I'm hoping this bike will be good for general road fun, 60 miles or less, and my commuting next year. I plan to add a rear rack to it.

    Good basic bike, no worries.

    If anything, the 1000 geometry will be more mellow than a race bike. If it's a good deal, buy it.

    EXCELLENT thanks. That's very useful. Makes me want it all the more. Turns out the seller has another buyer interested ... the race is one ... agh.
