My three Treks.
Simple arithmetic, 400 + 400 = 800, right?
The 800 was bought from a druggie's widow; it has been brushed with house paint and retains its ratty saddle so it can be overlooked as a beater while occasionally locked up at the train station.
Great rides all.

Pretty sure they did. My '79 is wearing a lower quality repaint and the wrong seat tube graphic.

All that really matters is the old logo on the seat tube and on the seatstay caps as well as the screwed in head badge.

1984 Trek 620 that I found at a garage sale for $65. Finished it a couple weeks ago, and it's now my daily commuter until the snow comes. It is the nicest riding bike I have ever owned.

That is cool.


I can see that (aside from being a great tourer) being a perfect 'throw some lunches and beers in some bags and spend a full day riding all the Oak Leaf Trail trails.

I haven't gotten to any of the ones that I see north of the city- only thing I've ridden has been the Hank Aaron.

Thanks! I ride the Oak Leaf trail on the west side of the city everyday on my commute. The one north of the city that connect with the Ozaukee Interurban I've ridden quite a few times, the longest trip was all the way up to just south of Oostburg.

1985 Trek 620 and 600

The 620 is for commuting and long distance riding with the 600 for cruising. The 620 is in the middle of a wheel build with only the front done (Shutter Precision dynohub/Velocity Dyad). The 600 has a 650b conversion and float on its Compass Grand Bois Leirre tires. Both are wired so I can easily swap the Supernova headlight. The 600 has a Son dynamo.

This 85' 520 was a thrift store find. The seat post was hopelessly stuck, I had to use lye to remove it, ruining the paint in the process The original wheels were replaced with 7sp Tri color, with Matrix hoops. The stem was also changed to a tall Nitto. In the end I gave the frame set to my youngest brother, as I prefer a taller frame.

Cheers!

New arrival! 1987 USA made Trek 520 Cirrus frame and fork. Needs a little TLC but will leave the paint original. Missing a headbadge (anyone have an extra?).

Almost have enough spare parts to build as an older tour rig, early Blackburn rack, triple Sugino, 5 speed cog (half step) and all Suntour Cyclone, Schwinn branded bar-end shifters, wide 700c rim clincher. If possible to get the chain wrap I might play around with the cogs and go 6 speed Mega-range.

Will need a cantilever brake set and front lowrider rack.

'77 710 frameset built up with my ideal mix of new and old. Most recent addition is the Sugino triple double from Rivendell mated to a 12-25 9sp Ultegra cassette. With enough bottom end for long, steep climbs, I plan to spend the SoCal winter exploring Angeles National Forest roads.

Those with pewter Treks...WATCH THIS SPACE! You will be amazed when I post the color match available in Deborah Lippman's "Take The A Train" nail polish. Heaven is only a beauty supply store away.

Very nice. I have a couple pewter's so will be looking forward to see your nail polish touch up. Now if I could only find a perfect match metallic blue.

Umm.... its different. I favor my Cro-Mo bikes, but it is surprisingly lively and yet stiff. I need to put more miles on it.

I like it much more than my Trek 1400 Alu.

Not very helpful, sorry.

Took my 1984 Trek 610 out for a 30 mile recently; it handles great and I like the IRC 700 x 30c tires a lot.

I am not used to sitting so upright. Might try some moustache bars soon.

Next, a 1984 Trek 510 (19") that I picked up at a garage sale and overhauled for my sister who was looking for her first road bike. I'm kind of jealous: the Suntour Cyclone shifters/derailleurs shift better than any bike I have ever ridden.

whats the size has it hit the block yet?

It's a 22", roughly 55cm square. Sold it right away, but the guy who bought it is selling it now, says he only put about 100-150 miles on it or so.
Check the DC Craigslist: 1985 Trek 760 road bike, 56 cm

Based on his pictures, looks like he rode it very little and stored it indoors.

It sucks to have a bike that you can ALMOST be comfortable on.

You can try rationalizing it, you can ride it, but you're not enjoying it because you're just not comfortable on it.
