Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

2010 Trek 1.5

I'm going to look at a 2010 Trek 1.5 first thing in the morning, any thoughts on this bike? I really hope this bike is as the seller described as I'm getting tired of chashing bikes.

Yep, and they all turn out being nothing like described.

The Trek 1.5 is a fine bicycle. Not perfect but at $400 it would be a great buy. The bike I leave in Europe is one on these.

My first road bike was a trek 1.5. It did the job.

I have one, good bike. The 2010 frame isn't as nice as the previous year's (straight gauge tubing instead of butted and whatnot) but the improvement in components is worth it. If it's in good condition $500 doesn't sound too bad to me.
