Dear Cyclofiend,

Here re some pics of my rebuilt and "enlightened" mid-eighties Trek 1000. I was given this bike by my best friend who received a new Fuji roadie as a gift and no longer needed this one. It is a really fun bike to ride, very smooth, comfortable and quick once I get going. The front chainring is a 52 biopace, rear is 18. The bike cruises but I have to avoid long or steep hills. I'll probably change the front chainring to a 48 tooth soon, and I would also like to paint the frame sunflour yellow, if I can find someone who'll do it affordably. I converted the original threaded fork and stem to a threadless system. All together it cost about 150 bucks to convert this into what it is now. It weighs about 19lbs or so.
