Congratulations on the new acquisition. What I love about old Trek is their versatility, you can go modern, leave it vintage; either way you'll love the ride. At least I do!

way cool. with what appears to be massive tire clearance and the full 531 frame, it's basically a unisex Competition. Imagine putting 650b's on it and turning it into a adventure mixte.
