..appreciate your efforts & Trek's input as well. Will the recovered website be the same as in the past or will it be a different version?

Same (total) content or will it have to be reassembled as best you/we can?

VintageTrek If this is Mark- you might want to kind of announce who you are (or your position as to why Trek reached out to you) so you're not confusing people that you're Skip or something.

hi this Mark, I have been in this forum much longer under a different name. I run Vintage Trek Bicycles on Facebook with about 4500 members since 2009. My goal is to initially get my domain up and running (vintagetrekbicycles.com) with Information provided by Skips page. Then add a community board with regional threads where locals can meet and set up rides, tech threads, classifieds etc much like like this fantastic forum. It will be a work in progress for a while. Obviously we will give Skip credit for all his hard work setting up his site. He was my inspiration for setting up my Facebook page. Any suggestions please chime in. Thanks for your feedback

I didn't want to exactly "out" you, but I thought knowing that Trek reached out because you're the FB group owner and clearing up that you're not Skip would be a plus.

Fascinating. Are they giving you editorial control or is this going to be hagiography? If the latter are you getting access? Are you going past the steel era? Dealing with racing history or just helping people with their bike-store bikes? Doing other social media?

Is this, in other words, a job? Because it seems like it could be

it is paid up thru 2027 I believe

Thanks for your efforts in straightening things out. 👍 And especially, thanks for acknowledging Skip's previous work. A lot of folks these days might not even bother with that. 😒

Has anyone heard anything from or about him (Skip) yet? Still hoping he's OK, and maybe just on a weird vacation type thing. 🤔

letís pray he is ok but even his business site is down. I even tried reaching out to his immediate family but no bueno. Iím excited that Trek reached out. It appears they are proud of their legacy and like having a community for us Guys with their old bikes. 😁

I think we’re not alone in saying how important of a resource Skip’s page has been for us. I’ve ID’d dozens of Treks over the years using his website. If anything, we’ll be around to help you get your website up and running with accurate historical information. But it also goes to show how much Trek in Waterloo really cares about this too. We’re really looking forward to seeing what you’ll be doing on vintagetrekbicycles.com, and don’t hesitate to ask any of us for help. This is very cool news.

Shoot!🤔 I will certainly need to replace one or two of my ďmissingĒ TREKs so that I have a good excuse to go to the new Vintage Trek site.

Hi there. This is great news. I don't currently own a Trek but have had 3 throughout my cycling life. I always have liked them as a company and now to hear that they are supportive of keeping a old web site going about old bikes is great news. I think it really speaks good work ethos for the company. It is really good to see this when most companies want you to buy the latest and greatest and don't care about what was last year. You never know buy supporting this it may drive someone to buy a new Trek to go along with their C&V Trek.
Thank you for all your effort.

Thank you for all your effort.

i was pretty excited as well, Trek has an amazing heritage and itís hard to believe a little company that started in a barn in Wisconsin has become the large company today.

also Iíve seen I have a couple of messages waiting for me. I think I have to hit a certain number of posts to reply. So sorry not ignoring anyone. Thanks also for your patience, we are working build a quality site.

I only have one Trek in my collection and knew nothing about the Vintage Trek website until I stumbled on to the bike. I bought a car from a car lot (new) and one requirement was that I could fit a bike in it. After I chose the car that would best suit my needs, the salesman said “ so you have vintage road bikes, do you want my old Trek?”. It turns out he bought a new blue Trek 600 back in 1985 and got in a serious car accident days later with major back injury. The bike never got ridden, it was like NOS. After he gave it to me I looked up the serial # on the website and also cruised the original print ad. Unfortunately the bike is too small so my son in law rides it ( it is his as far as I’m concerned), but I store it with my collection. The website is very helpful and I learned a lot about the US Treks in the process.

Bumping back to top. I know that the holidays are a busy time for folks, but seeing as how I just picked up another vintage Trek the website will have many interested and appreciative parties.

Thanks for all the hard work!
