Description

Frame

The Trek 8500 is based on an Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with a semi-integrated head tube, hydroformed tubing and forged race dropouts. This is one of Trek’s best alloy frames, with a lower weight than its rivals and the same kind of stiffness and rigidity that is vital for straight line speed and uphill momentum.

Fork

The Fox Evolution Series 32 Float RL air spring shock is found at the front of the Trek 8500, with lockout and rebound adjust and a maximum travel distance of 100mm. This is a fork arrangement which benefits from utilising components from a respected manufacturer, so you can be sure that the suspension will continue to soak up hits consistently time after time without starting to show the effects of its use too quickly. In addition the lockout is a nice feature which makes tackling climbs that little bit easier, since you will not be expending energy unnecessarily and can enjoy performance similar to that of a fixed fork bike.

The while bike was bought new for £1500 in 2012. it has seen a handful of rides and meticulously kept. This is a great way to buy a high end classic at a fraction of the cost and build it in the way you have dreamed.

Condition: B+

After this bike was bought new, it was stored in a dry area for 10 or so years. It has maybe seen a handful of rides. So it's in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. 

There is one mark on the frame due to storage.
