If the 600 Ultegra is original, no earlier than 1988

I had one just like it that was a 1989 (color showed up in 1985, 1988, and 1989). Just look up the serial number and the color combo on vintage Trek site. Note the internal cable routing on mine as well.


Components on mine were not original, bought it as a frankenbike: mix of Campy, Superbe Pro, Shimano 600, tri bars, etc., rebuilt it with all 105 and moved it on to a new home.

My guess was an '88 as well, at least until I noticed the fork sticker. Is that a TrueTemper sticker? The tubing changed from year to year. The frame I had, pretty sure an '88, had 6061-T6 tubing. The other years used something else.

So if that's TT sticker, I'm changing to '89, if the paint/decal scheme remained the same.

I've only seen one other 2000, which was red, and it came with 9-sp DA, so I'm sure that was later.
At that time, I believe the 2000 frame was the same as the 1400 frame, just different components.

Those earlier years may be different, but the 2000 was one of their top consumer frames at the time, was it not?

I believe that the 1989 Trek 2000 was only available as a frameset. Im still riding mine. It was the high-end aluminum frame but they had the same frame available with carbon main tubes by then as the 2300 / 2500 and the full-carbon 5000 came out that year, too.
