    I reaaly like the white pedals.. nice touch, they just integrate so well. Nice bike. :D
    Why tidy the house when you can clean your bike?
  • Stunning looking bike, much prefer the older Treks to this years models :D

    Beautiful paint scheme, but what's with the cables coming out of the side of the 105 shifters? I thought the cables were supposed to run under the grips on 105?
  • nah,that's ultegra I think (I may be wrong). That's how they were when I bought the bike brand new,really fancy getting the shifters that have the internal routing of the cables.

    that's only on the newer 7900/6700/5700.

    Really nice bike, but your bars and saddle are almost at the same height, which is not a great recipe for aerodynamics and hence speed.
  • Thanks.Yeah,going to eventually drop the bars as low as they can go,see how it feels and get used to the riding position. Regarding the fizik saddle I don't know,I got it from planet x last year,maybe you can check if they still have some.

    The old frames (your one) look so much nicer than the modern frames I think... lush bike!

    It's terrible. I should (and do) really not like treks - purely because of their assocaition of a rider I love to hate.

    That one does look very good, especially with the blue & white, and I've read/heard they ride veery nicely.

    There is one of those for sale in a 56 (I think) BNOS, for sale in Bike Zone in the centre of Oxford, 1400 queens I believe it is. Very very nice looking bike.

    I was going to ride it but I went for another one instead.

  • Really like it, but then I love the Treks from a year or two ago. Love it how the blu and grey Garmin 500 fits in with the colour scheme! Enjoy. Mark
