I had a 1990 Trek 520. Steel fork and frame. In addition to being a great touring bike, it was a perfect all-around bike. I brought it to England with me and it was my only means of transportation for 3.5 years. It was almost maintenance-free. I don't remember what all the components were, but they were all robust and worked really well. Why change a winning game?
