    IIRC, mine had a 20.5" frame which fit me perfectly at 5'10.5". I'd prolly pass if I couldn't source a correct replacement fork ahead of time.

    Any pics? Had a '91 MB-5 that I overhauled a few years ago. Overall performance was way better than I expected. Sold it because I didn't like the paint scheme and graphics--and kicked myself...
  3. Trying to match Trek Beaujolais paint for touch ups

    I'm finding this dark metallic red a challenge to match. Prefer to use paint rather than nail polish. Ford Dark Toredor looks like it might be pretty close. Has anyone here found a paint color...

    Early '80s Treks could be special ordered from Waterloo with upgrades. Check the hubs on your bike for date codes. If the dates tally with the model year, check the '82 & '83 Trek catalogs for...

    The SN appears to have been deliberately ground down just enough to obscure the bike's identity. You may be able to read most but not all of it--which was probably the intent. If the SN was...

    My 412 had a few paint scrapes that I touched up with Duplicolor Scratch-Fix. After using polishing compound over the touched up areas the new paint was only noticeable at certain light angles. ...

    Please don't repaint that frame! The color combo would make it a '81 710 or possibly an early '82 715.

    Components could be mixed and matched back then, so date codes might help with confirming...

    Good advice. Buying used parts when possible will lower the overall cost of your upgrades quite a bit.
    I'd much rather have your 620 than a LHT.

    I knew what you meant. :) Sometimes the crown race from one fork won't fit on another (been there). Wouldn't expect a problem using a Logic headset with a Ritchey fork, but it could be different...

    Thanks guys. After a fairly thorough web search, I was only able to locate three 1-1/8" cantilever-compatible 700c carbon forks with curved blades from Nashbar, Redline, and Ritchey.

    Looks great. I dunno about it being pretty rough to start with; very few discriminating scars or marks that I can see. Are you gonna try to find a correct RD for it?

    A LBS should have dozens of used quill stems for less than $5 each. Might even find another Ritchey Force stem like the bike had originally.

    I'm pretty sure you've got a '92 model. Check the date codes on those OEM derailleurs to be sure.
    That blue stem is just too ugly; please make it go away.
