Green Trek 1200, Aluminum|
This bike is a 56cm Green Trek. It has a 7 speed casette with Shimano 105 components. The bike is a few years old, and the shifters are on the down tube.
I have 2 sets of Wheels I will include with this bike, and the tires with them. The 1st set of wheels are the stock wheels. They are Matrix Titan Tech 700 CC wheels with Performance GT2 Tires. The 2nd set of wheels are Alex Rims DA-16's, which are also a 700cc wheel. Tires on this set are Specialized Turbos.
The saddle is a Serfas Gel saddle, which is very comfortable, especially doing century plus rides.
This bike has brought me about 2200 miles of dependability and I have used it on Century rides, 1/2 centuries, Crits, Time Trials and Triathlons. It has been an awsome starter bike, getting to know the basics of the sport. I have moved up bikes, and don't want to just leave this one sit around collecting dust.
I will take $300 for this bike, to include the wheel sets. Buyer will also be responsible for the shipping.
