    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.

    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.

    I have to chime in here.....

    ViperZ's 5000 is one of the nicest, most well balanced bikes I've ever seen IMHO. I also want to publicly acknowledge that his work on this particular bike was a huge inspiration in my recent adventure with a Trek OCLV restoration project.

    Thanks again ViperZ.

    Thanks Rad, I'm glad and honored that my 5000 lead to such beautiful works or art that you have been turning out lately

    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.

    Nice

    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.

    Thanks!

    Many of my bike club members could not believe it was 17 years old as well.

    Nice to hear you bought a new 5000, congrats.

    Me neither


    Thanks, I took it out for a ride yesterday, it still rides and handles like a dream I would like to get a set of carbon wheels for it, it looks really good with them on.

    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?
