Im from Corona, CA just bought an older 10 speed TREK 1400 trying to get into the sport dont know much hopefully i can learn what i neeed to know here so bear with me and my many many questions to come haha

Welcome to the fold, sloane. You'll find a wealth of information here - and nice folks who will help you with whatever you need to know about bikes and your Trek in specific. It's quite the knowledge base here - I just joined the other day and I am quite impressed.

Do check out the Search The Forums link on the tabs above of where you're reading. It works! Have fun and happy trails from Vermont.

That's not a 10 speed (which would date from the 1970s), but a nice early-1990s 14 or 16 speed. I like the frame pump. It would be prettier without the clip-on aero bars, and with the drops tilted up to make the top almost horizontal, but that is purely personal opinion. I hope you have bought as nice a bike for your gf.

she didnt have much money to spend but she got an older miyata 100 it needs work but the frame and wheelset are pretty much perfect just needs some drivetrain work
