Updating an earlier pic. New bar tape, new brake hoods, new seat, new chain, new freewheel, new tires, new tubes, new Reynolds decals. Spent a lot of time, effort, and dollars over the last 6 months on it.

This is an early 90's (believe 1993) Trek 2100 composite frame I built up for my wife over the summer. Literally rescued it. Look like someone had decapitated it at the stem... handlebars missing & all cables cut off. The frame was in very good shape (with no scratches or signs of separation at the joints or cracking. Was dirty has hell though. Converted from down tube shifting to STI. I was in the local bike co-op dropping off some parts and found a matching set of 105 calipers (had RX100 and the drive train was all 105) so I took them home and put them on the bike. However it ended up being too small for her so we traded it in where it still sits at the LBS waiting for someone shorter to take it home and enjoy it.

This is the Trek 640 I bought in 1983 from the Ridgewood Cycle Shop in Ridgewood, NJ. I use it every other day for workouts using Trainer Road and Sufferfest. 27 x 1 inch tires were changed recently to 1.25 inch and pedals are Shimano Clip ins. The large/small sproket changer was also recently changed at Joe's Fix it in Goshen, NY. To everyone else, nice bikes. I'm
heading over to the over 50 forum now..

Here is my dropbar conversion early 90's (not sure of the exact year, guessing 94) Trek 800.

ST-2300 brifters, still running the Biopace gears, 26" tires, and some other odds and ends.

Picture is before the brifters and new tires.

just a friendly tip, it's not the camera's fault. it's because you put your bike in a dark area, with a very bright background. it would've looked like crap on just about any camera without a lot of tweaking.

understanding light is the one thing to learn to take simple, nice photographs.

I've been considering a CX setup some time in the future and this just might be a good way to go. I like it.

There are some truly stunning vintage Treks on these pages!!! It gives me renewed appreciation for my lowly '88 TruTemper 560. I recently gave it an upgrade from its stock 105 group to full Dura Ace 74xx. It rides wonderfully and I love the precise feel and solid performance of the DA-74xx group.

Here is the '83 Trek 620 I picked up a couple months ago for free. I did a few upgrades: Barcons, Rando Bars, 700c wheels, Brooks saddle, aero brake levers. I kept all the original components in case I want to return it to it's stock condition.

I was once getting ready for a ride on pavement and a troupe of CX'rs passed me. The last guy slowed and asked what I was riding, when I explained it to him I got a nice bike. A few seconds later I could hear him yelling to his fellow riders about the guy with the CX bike on roids.

It handles well on the few short trips I have taken off the paved path, just haven't gone fully offroad, but the tires it currently has would be my only concern since they don't have a lot of knobby treads. But I did save one of the old tires that would work well on the back.

Here's an '82 614 I fixed up for my son to use on our C & O Canal Towpath trip last spring. We had a great time and the bike did real well. Upgraded with NOS Gran Compe centerpulls, Silver shifters, Sachs Quarz derailleurs, Nitto stem and bars, and a used 700C wheelset. I also changed out the original middle chainring. Although I'm a big fan, I didn't feel like he was quite ready for the factory supplied half-step gearing.

Well, I'm a songwriter, not a photo-grapher. Thanks for the advice.

Oddly enough, I love the picture. That's why I posted it. Thought it looked cool.

Cheers.

I've gone back to a quill stem on this since the pic but here is my 1987 400 Elance with a 531 frame. I've also put a set of Mavic Aksium wheels and Conti 4000 S tires on it since then which really pepped up an already sweet ride. I cold set the rear to fit a 9 speed 105 drive train.

Time to bump this thread. I finally got all my Dura-Ace installed on my 1987 Trek 560. Cranks, derailleurs, skewers, cassette, brifters, brakes, and headset are all 9s DA. I have the pedals and seatpost but neither work for me on this bike. I love the carbon bontrager seat post and mavic titanium pedals (which I'll be selling as soon as I can get them off).
