Trek 760

Help me make up my mind.


I currently have a 1984 Trek 560. On craigslist I found a 1985 Trek 760. The seller was asking $200 for the 760, but agreed to take $175. The bike is listed in 'very...

I see in the catalogue page that you linked that the mixte bike had no hoods. So I guess they were optional ?

Saw a Fuji Royale on CL, cheap. Appears may be a 1981, blue.

The old post I found says the bike had Weinmann brakes and a little googling I found that Weinmann did have suicide levers so maybe they are original.

Also I just noticed that there are suicide brake levers- my understanding is that high quality bikes did not have such? Maybe the brake levers were changed?
