Trek 560 Pro Series

4 Dec

This is an ’83 Trek 560 Series 56cm, she was built in Waterloo, WI using 501 Reynolds steel and is all black with silver and red graphics. She has been rebuilt to her former glory using period appropriate components that are listed below.

  • Wheelset is a pair of 32h Sansin sealed and freshly packed silver hubs laced with stainless spokes to a pair of Matrix Titan S black anodized 700c box rims wrapped with new rim tape, tubes and Specialized all condition 700×28 tires, with new black skewers, very smooth and sexy.
  • Front and rear derailleurs are vintage Suntour Cyclone M-II with Suntour Barcon barend shifters, with new cables, rear cassette is Shimano with 6 cogs 13-24and a brand new Z chain, shifts like a dream.
  • Crankset is a Sakae CR double 52-42 Sakae rings with a new Shimano BB UN-54 68×122.5.
  • Brakes are a pair of black anodized Dia Compe AC500 GX with new pads, cables and housing. The pulls are matching Dia Compe AC500 GX.
  • Sakae drop bars and stem that have been wrapped with new black bar wrap.
  • Freshly packed black Tange Levin headset, black Truvativ seat post with a WTB saddle.

This black beauty has been fully lubed and overhauled and is ready for the next adventure, this is the bike that was part of my main stable during the 2010 summer, she sold at the beginning of the 2011 summer and has been adventuring in Montana, California, Colorado and now back in Oregon.
