What year is this Trek 1000?
 
https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...00f2690f2e.jpg
Thinking about this Trek 1000, it's quite cheap, and would be a good compliment to the 1991 Trek 7000 MTB I picked up a couple years ago. I can't find this color and decal combo at Trek Bike Models by Year and Color... Just a bit stumped is all.

Edit... I found a 1400, so I'm discussing that bike later in this thread...

Is that Suntour Blaze’?

Could be. Either that or Edge.

My 1989 Trek 1000 came with Edge.

This one is later, but only by a year or two, or perhaps 3. So my guess is somewhere between 1990 and 1992.

The dropout and decal on the top tube and seatstay put it as post-89 for sure.

Steamer 02-09-19 09:17 PM

After looking at old catalogs, it's got to be a 91.

As long as the paint is decent - those are the "can't go wrong" bikes around here

Sorry to Interrupt but does your Trek 7000 look similar to this?

My 1990 was white with red logo but I remember it had the “aluminum” on the TT and had Suntour Blaze.

Dannihilator 02-09-19 10:35 PM

It's a 1991.

Nope, This was a few days after I got the 7000. Only change I've made since was new chain, brake pads and new tires and tubes. Otherwise, exactly as it was in 1991.

zjrog 02-10-19 12:26 AM

Well then, I need to chase this bike down and get in touch with the seller. As I said, a perfect compliment to my 91 7000. The 7000 was a bike I desired right after having a MTB stolen in 91...

OldsCOOL 02-10-19 06:15 AM

As said, Trek’s are good. The 1000 is a more recent model series. I may be incorrect but if you dont see it listed at the vintage trek site may be a sign of a newer line.

zjrog 02-10-19 11:22 PM

Thanks, but the seller didn't get back to me, and it appears gone. Bummer...

RiddleOfSteel 02-15-19 12:27 AM

I was gonna say, there was that fine dust on the frame, but otherwise the paint and graphics underneath looked flawless! Too bad it appears gone. :(

After missing out on the 1000 above, and a 1200 recently, my patience was rewarded... 92 Trek 1400. I haven't looked at the components just yet, beyond being 105, and NINE speed cluster... Needs cleaning, tires and tubes and brake pads... Will dig into it later today...

jetboy 03-30-19 08:02 PM

nice! numbering even works with the 7000. at some point these started coming optional with 7 speed rsx brifters right? they are right in the turn of things

zjrog 03-30-19 09:03 PM

I believe if they got STI, it was 105.

Ok. I dug into some this afternoon. I cleaned it up a bit, needs fully disassembled. But I wanted to see what worked or didn't. Turns out, the 9 speed cassette is just there, probably spare wheels from something else. It would only shift the smaller 8. Even in friction. That 9 speed cassette is 12-25. I tried a 8 speed 12-32 cassette, and a small adjustment of the RD. And it handles the 8 speed and 32t. On the work stand at least. I did slip a spare front tire on it, and there is space for a 700x32 up front. Probably rear too...

I took it for a short spin in my neighborhood. I'm anxious to get it on the road...

Congrats on the pickup. I've had a few of the 1xxx series, they are great bikes. My only words of advice from my own experience are to be very gentle with the front derailleur shifter; the bosses are bonded on to the frame. It's a relatively well-known weak spot on these bikes. And unless there was a model redesign at some point I doubt you would get anything wider than a 25mm tire to fit in the rear. But like you said, the front is suprisingly roomy.

Enjoy!

Thanks! I had been reading about that issue and will heed such advice. I think I may see if 28s fit the rear. But anything bigger than 25s just might look out of place.

My commute is 50 miles over a mountain pass, so no bike commuting, meaning only recreational riding. 700x25 will be fine.

I do need to find a better set of wheels than the Alexrims that came with it. I had bought a couple pair of wheels a few weeks ago. One pair is 105 5600 hubs with Rigida rims. I was going to put them on my 5600 equipped KHS, to replace some Alexrims I got at the Collective. That may change. I also bout some Shimano WH561 wheels. But for looks or on my trainer. I am too heavy to consider 16 spoke front, 20 spoke rear... https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...f1a4745634.jpg
Purty. But the price was right. I doubt I ever get under 200 lbs... So these are just bling for the sake of bling...

sdn40 03-31-19 02:14 PM

The touch of red in that wheelset would set things off nicely. I know some purists frown upon such wheelsets, but I'm a big fan of wheel bling. The easiest way to give the bike a more modern look

Visually, I HAVE to agree. But as a 270 pound Clydesdale, they may be display only or show off the bike on the roof rack... Not a CHANCE I'm going to ride them. Well, I have the rear pn my trainer...

zjrog 03-31-19 09:56 PM

Guess I'm going to discuss this 1400 here, instead of starting a new thread.

I decided to ride this bike for a bit before making any plans with it. To that end, ordered a chain, and brake pads. I'm going to use the wheelset of my 98 Cannodale R200, until I get a a different set of wheels, or decide on shifters for the R200.

Before that, I fit a set of 28s in the rear of the 1400, and they do fit, but 32s in the rear might not...

Yep, not much room...

zjrog 04-01-19 09:08 AM

There is a possible problem. I'm going to have chase when I tear into the BB...
https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...d43e4bfb62.jpg
I was going to.look up the serial number. Looks like this was used as a winter beater and left dirty a lot.

zjrog 04-28-19 11:26 AM

Decided to not worry about the corrosion under the paint until next winter. Inside the bottom bracket looks just fine. I've had the bike out now a few times and I really like it, though my downtube shifting skills are as ancient as they are, but more rusty...

I decided to run the Rigida wheelset with 105 5600 series hubs and 700x25 tires. Swapped a new 7 speed cassette and spacer on the 8,9,10 speed hub.
https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...f984e18a38.gif

Shifts wonderfully. New chain, new brake pads and new bar tape...

Still has the wheelset off my Cannondale in this pic from 2 weeks ago...

This old bike sure makes me feel fast, but I really need to consider a compact crankset or just the chainrings... I have a difficult time pushing the 53t chaining right now...

zjrog 06-17-19 08:43 AM

As much as I like this bike, I'm more interested in getting another person riding. Passing it on...
https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...910e59b70.jpeg
To my son in law. Recently my daughter decided it was time to move up from her hybrid, so I helped her find a 1998 Schwinn Passage. Set up as a 3x7 Shimano RSX, much like my 98 Cannondale. The hybrid is a bit too short in reach for my son in law, and after letting borrow my 29er for a week, decided to see how he liked this old Trek...

While he figures out what he is wanting in a bicycle, it is on loan. But, could be a gift before long... I did pull my wheels off, and it rolls on the Alexrim wheelset with 700x28 I originally found for my KHS. These roll nice for him and he was able to roll out an easy 9.5 miles yesterday, will take some time to get used to the downtube shifters.

It's good to get someone interested in riding...
