Having seen SYN-CROSSIS` 91 6000 Aluminium on here a few months back I knew I wanted one. I have had my eyes out on e bay etc for a while until JJDegaris posted a for sale link on here. After a bit of negotiation and a trip to Kent I collected this last weekend. The condition is far better than the sale pictures suggested, the paint is bright and unmarked and the spec is virtually 100% original inc saddle.

I have a few plans for it -

- Pair of Black Mavic ceramic SUP wheels on XT hubs
- Panaracer Smoke 2.1 rear
- Panaracer smoke Dart 2.1 front (NOS)
- Flite Ti saddle - need to source
- Atac or Syncros stem in neon yellow or black - need to source
- Suntour thumbies.

After a very quick clean here it is -

Very VERY nice bike that. I've never been a massive fan of Trek..... except for the '91 range. Perfectly proportioned bike and LOUD colour 8)

The perfect RetroBike.

Great color! With slicks perhaps you are using it to commute? Super safety style :)

The slicks are going ASAP mate. As per the spec at the top I have a nice pair of black rims and some tan wall smoke/darts to go on. Looking forward to having a tinker around and will update thread when complete.
