Lightweight carbon frameset is 100% handmade in Waterloo, WI, the last few ones to be completely made here in America
#AmericaFirst

*All Original Parts--as far as I can tell--except for the wheels and the pedals (Trek really didn't include pedals during its production run, see images)

Fresh 700c Bontrager Wheels (find pics of separate wheels posted with USA flag, newer, tires are 8.5/10, and a much cleaner, smoother cassette)

52cm Frame (too small for bikers 6-foot high or taller and too big for those below 5' in height)

A likewise suitable ride for female cyclists: like men, you can literally have the bike wrapped around your finger (on the part of the bike frame where the whole bike's center of gravity lies) and be able to carry it.

Bright Silver/Titanite Black with blue and white trim

Weighs less than 20 pounds even with all the accessories on

OCLV Carbon 120 -- the good sh*t

Comes with all the bells and whistles:
Cateye Astrale 8 #Bicycle Computer (pre-mounted),
Front and Rear #Safety Lights (batteries included) plus side reflectors,
2 Frame-Mounted Bottle Cages,
Frame-mounted U-Lock (with 2 keys),
and a partially-used mini-size spray can of everybody's favorite multi-purpose lubricant product, WD-40

This must be one of the best full carbon race bikes out there that you can buy used for less than a grand. The one for sale here is in impressive working condition save for a few cosmetic wear and tear (see photos). Those scuffs, scratches, and tears on the frame are from being scratched in the garage or by the rider, but absolutely not from crashes.


I'm selling this bike because, over the past few weeks, it has been left merely to gather dust and, perhaps with further neglect, rust while being u-locked for days on end without seeing much action. And since I don’t see myself back on the drops any time in the near future, the bike is better off sold on the marketplace for another cyclist to snag and make great use of himself or herself.

Trek 5000 must be one of the best used full carbon race bikes you can buy out there for less than $1,000. This one right here is in impressive working condition save for some cosmetic imperfection (see photos). The few scuffs, dings, scrapes, and wear are due to being scratched against the bike rack, chafing with bike cables, U-lock, friction with natural elements, loose rocks, by the rider himself (not deliberately, of course) and, quite possibly, by poor hornets/fireflies/little floating aliens with exoskeleton colliding at high speed onto the speeding bike--could have been any of those things, but absolutely not from crashes or lack of care.

Complementing the bike’s top-of-the-line frame material is an equally respectable set of mechanical components. The Trek 5000 comes with a groupset that is of the Ultegra / Shimano 105 variety, the Cadillac of bike componentry. It has a compact chainset which gives the bike an impressive range of gears, ideal for steep climbs without compromising weight and handling.

Given the frame material and groupset, this bike is incredibly light. And in spite of it being so lightweight, the bike still effortlessly manages to absorb all those otherwise ball-busting bumps you get on the road. I don’t know how it does it--it just does, every single time. No need to fear those potholes and ramps with this one!

This model is the predecessor to the Trek #Madone series (they're pretty much the same bike, if you ask me, except for the astounding difference in price), adding even more value to this particular Trek 5000. And it was released on the very year that Lance Armstrong “won” his 7th and final #Tour de France championship. This is also the last year that Trek made a carbon frame with conventional road geometry right here in the #USA. Not to mention, the OCLV is the highest quality, handmade #American carbon fibre material. Many of the concurrent Trek releases were made with TCT carbon but this one right here was crafted with the more stable, much superior OCLV carbon material. Just sayin' tho. #NoBikeShade
