Trek 5500 w/ Campagnolo 58cm For Sale $1050
« on: November 17, 2015, 10:43:01 PM »
If anyone here is interested I'm selling my old steed. Lots of faithful miles but it was time for me to upgrade.
Here's the Craigslist ad.
I can ship the bike but shipping is extra. I'm guessing around $100 to ship based on what I've seen and what mine cost to ship. My new bike came in a box I can repurpose.

$1050

Don - how tall are you?  I'm 5'10 and ride a 56 in both my road bike and tri-bike.  I have been looking upgrade my old Trek to a full carbon bike but a 58 always seemed too big for me.

Yeah it's a great bike. There's nothing wrong with it. Was just time for an upgrade.  :)
I just built a Trek Emonda SL8 Red. (SRAM Red 22 Groupo) I would show pictures but I'm not quite done with it yet. Still waiting for the wheelset.

I'm 5'11"
I like the 58cm size. More options for expansion type of thing especially for tri setups. With the correct stem you can layout easier without having to lose your seat/pedal geometry. I fit well on this one. Was/is very fast also.
With the Campy Rapid Shift it was great for attacking hills in a group. I was able to shift much faster. (Kind of like paddle shifters on a car. LOL)

Don,

I would have loved that bike but I talked to the guy in the shop that does my fitting and he said that it would not be a good choice for me.  I have a 1" leg length discrepancy (car accident/broken femur when I was a teenager) that we have to accommodate and the 56 gives me enough wiggle room between between both sides to get a decent fit without having to go to different crank arm lengths on each side.  So, ... although I really like it I'll have to pass.  GLWS

Hey, no problem. I understand that. If you know someone interested in getting into road riding or racing and don't want to break the bank. Let them know about it. ;)
