That's the one. At the small end of my comfort range, so we will see if it sticks around. Putting some tubes and tires on this week and going for a test ride. I hope it is acceptable, it's really in nice shape.

Let me know if you find it unacceptable. My 85 needs a sibling.

I think that is what Trek called 22.5 inches and we call 56cm for some reason. It looks to be the same size as mine and I measured it to be 56cm. Anyhoo it's a fine bike, you did well.

Edit:
Yep, 56cm. http://www.vintage-trek.com/images/t...rekCatalog.pdf
I find it interesting that Trek used inches for the 560/760 and cm for the 770. Weird.

Pretty color. The Superbe Pro is a nice bonus.
2nd dibs after Chrome Molly.
I passed on a local 560 EX, regretted it ever since.

Also interesting is the fact that Trek had no problem specing Specialized components. Pretty sure that would not happen today....

Yeah I saw that too. Very strange, especially since Specialized wasn't even making those parts themselves to begin with. Weird.

Latest version of the 1982 613. Just got the Brooks B17 with the copper rivets, A Tanaka cage and some MKS BM-7s to match. In the process of doing the bar end conversion with some Rivendell Silvers but waiting on the correct size cable stop.

NICE! Looking forward to some outdoor pics though. I hate what that no flash low light exposure does to pictures. Gives it a pixelated fuzzy quality.,,,,BD

Yea, I really hate using my phone for taking pictures. Once the right size cable stop gets here and I will get some outdoor pictures in good lighting.

I suppose I should take the opportunity to show off the newly re-set up 1985 Trek 620.





I did a Nitto Dirt Drop stem and 44cm Noodle bars. I used the Jagwire "titanium" housing for the shifters, but there wasn't enough brake housing, so that was done with the Jagwire grey. Still with the 6sp Command Shifters. I love those things.








Replaced the XC Pro RD with an XC Comp (Shimano 6sp FW) and the stock Sachs/Huret FD.







This is just an unruly cool bicycle that I'm really happy about.

The Golden Boy....that Trek is the cat's a$$!! I love it, awesome build.

I am hoping to score one this summer for a build similar to this. I love the 600 series.

Thank you!

It's such a smooth bike. This has been my favorite bike- by a LONG shot. I would encourage everyone to check out the ride of a Trek tourer. Or a 'touring' bike in general. Maybe it's because I'm so used to this, or used to riding by myself, I don't feel "sluggish" or "stout" when I ride it. Even though it's a full on tourer, it's a perfect "all-arounder." For everything that I ride.

That is looking really cool! Now some copper colored toe cages!

The bike's color and the copper make that "steampunk" look.

Really cool.

Very nice bike! I have a similar one and I've been looking for a front rack. What is the rack, and could you post a closeup of it? Thanks, here's mine.

I thought that too- as it's not a straight shot in to the RD. I can't remember where I read it, the Accushift stuff is supposed to have between 28-30cm of housing. I was going by that- I realize that it's entirely dependent on where the cable stop (or exiting the chainstay) is on that particular bike.

I'll trim that up today.

Thanks for the mention!

I have Jim Blackburn front racks.

From what I know of, there's 2 basic styles that mount to the fork dropouts. There's the single, center strut that mounts straight on to the fork crown- it' would mount behind caliper brakes.








Then there's what I refer to as the 'wrap around' rack. That goes around either side and mounts to the back of the fork crown. The hole in my fork crown is actually threaded, so I have my rack mounted with a screw threaded into the fork- otherwise a regular bolt would go through and thread on.
