damn, that bike is hot

Design is a good idea
Just remember if you switch to a fork like Easton, you're looking at going threadless which means switching the stem and headset. I like the way it looks now(like being an understatement), only change out if you think you'll gain comfort.
Thanks and I feel the same as you... As much as I would like to keep upgrading, there is a certain pont where it may lose it's character. I have decided to just leave it as is and start on a new bike.Originally Posted by Triguy
About the only change I have done is swapping to Continental Force and AttacK tires.
Hey Cyde, I'm liking them ok and can't complain. I have only 1500km (light I know) however they are still true. They were great wheels for the price, and look awesome in person. The funny thing is many riders (most always) have asked or commented on our rides "How do you like the Carbon Rims?" I guess they think they are Carbon rims because of the color and the deep Aero section
At the time I was looking to buy the Mavics, and I still may at some point for my new bike, but for the price of these, I would recommend them. I bought these due to the great reviews I have read on them and because I really liked the look of them the most (sans decals of course ).
I am interested in how the seatpost stays in place.
I do not see a clamp anywhere?
that part of the bike looks so clean.
I believe the seatpost was covered earlier in the thread. It works the same way as a qill stem does with an expander bolt in the end. Allen key at the top next to the seat clamp.

Thanks Rad, I'm glad and honored that my 5000 lead to such beautiful works or art that you have been turning out latelyOriginally Posted by 55/Rad
I have to say your MJ Lemond inspired me as well to build a solid, no nonsense bike that is based on traditional cues. One that is chiefly designed to be ridden day in and day out.
That is a beautiful bike. I just bought a 2006 Trek 5000 and your updated picture looks like a bike that could be on a showroom today. I like the paint color, and the tubes are shaped a little differently on yours. Amazing how little the composite frame has changed in 17 years. Very sweet indeed. Enjoy.
OMG OMG OMG This baby is STUNNING ! ! !
REALLY Nice bike...
an absolute classic, even though i dislike treks... Shame they dont make them like that anymore even if it is old. Put simply this is beautiful and you are a very lucky man... I THINK IM IN LOVE...
this is gorgeous
-something I don't usually find myself saying about Treks
Very, very nice. Great choice of kit too, who doesn't love Assos.
ViperZ, where are you?
Time to Ride...
Heh this is an old thread, but the bike is even older. I really like how sharp that bike looks. How much does the ancient thing weigh?
