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

Image

700c Bontrager Wheels (either tires might need replacing after a hundred or so miles of riding, no biggie, costs about 5 tall mocha fraps)

#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 with men, you can literally have the bike wrapped around your finger (tip: 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

Image
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

It should be one of the best full carbon race bikes out there that you can buy used for less than a grand. This one right here is in impressive working condition but with cosmetic wear (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 bought this bike from my cousin's classmate who just finished his MA and elected to return to Mexico to pursue his teaching career there (awesome guy, not a lot of people would voluntarily do that). So he did not want to spend a lot on shipping the bike and my cousin convinced him to just sell it to me instead (a thundering high-five ensued). I've always wanna have this bike ever since Trek first launched it; I just wasn't able to afford its more than $2,000 initial price tag since I was still a ramen-eating college student back then.

So I'm selling right now because the bike has been left merely to gather dust and, perhaps with further neglect, rust while being u-locked for days on end in the garage. Owing to a busy schedule, a recent inclination to the sedentary lifestyle, and a recent injury, I don't see myself on the drops any time in the near future. And, perhaps after having overheard all the exciting TV commentary during this recently concluded Tour de France and after knowing for a fact that a Latino cyclist finally won the entire thing (note: this bike was originally based in Monterrey, Mexico--see images), the still u-locked Trek 5000 might not put up with my no-road-bike-rides-sh*t anymore. Over the past few days, the bike been clamoring for 100-mile-or-more rides and those perfectly paved open roads rarely seen within LA County limits. I mean, who am I to deny its call?

The efficient chainset makes gear shifting smooth and precise. The entire groupset is of the Ultegra 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.

With the frame material and groupset in play, this bike is incredibly light! In spite of that, it 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.

This model is the predecessor to the Trek #Madone series, which makes this bike pretty rare! 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
