Well, here she is! The Actual thing this time.

I caught crap for using the factory picture and not the actual thing so here it is. I know, I know, flip it right? The pedals will do for now but I look forward to going clipless in the next two weeks.

I took it for a quick ride earlier and DAMN!! This beats the hell out of my previous bike (comfort bike). The TREK is 12 lbs lighter and soooo much faster. It handles like a dream, it will take a little getting used to but it is a lot of fun!

Yeah, I went to Bike Beat. They were great to deal with, in fact I think you were the one that told me about them.
Thanks for the info.

Nice. My first roadie was a Trek 1000. Same setup but all alloy. Other than getting a rear wheel handbuilt, it was a solid bike & never gave me trouble. I just recently sold it to a 14year old kid who just fell in love with riding. I was glad to see it go to someone who could enjoy it.

It looks great. It makes me miss my old Trek 1100.
