I built this Trek up about 18 months ago, as at that point I’d been riding for 30 years and wanted a bike to celebrate this. I’m actually only the second owner, and met the seller in person to collect it. There’s a couple of paint chips, but it’s in excellent condition for a 20 odd year old carbon frame. The Easton EC90 fork he fitted makes the handling really sharp, but stable at the same time.
My first carbon bike was a Trek OCLV, about 15 years ago. i thought it was amazing, but I’m older and less flexible now so this geometry no longer suits me, hence the sale.
That said, I’d quite like to keep some of the parts, so I’m planning to list it complete for a couple of weeks, then sell the frame, wheels, groupset etc separately if there’s no interest. Plenty more pics and info available on request, just message me about it.
Uk sale only, local pick up only, any questions just ask. Owing to the cost of this item please message me before making an offer, or i will have to reject it
