    Welcome to the fold, sloane. You'll find a wealth of information here - and nice folks who will help you with whatever you need to know about bikes and your Trek in specific. It's quite the knowledge base here - I just joined the other day and I am quite impressed.

    Do check out the Search The Forums link on the tabs above of where you're reading. It works! Have fun and happy trails from Vermont.

    That's not a 10 speed (which would date from the 1970s), but a nice early-1990s 14 or 16 speed. I like the frame pump. It would be prettier without the clip-on aero bars, and with the drops tilted up to make the top almost horizontal, but that is purely personal opinion. I hope you have bought as nice a bike for your gf.
