TREK 400 - INTRODUCTION

Three Trek bicycles have come my way in the time I have been collecting vintage lightweight road bicycles.  This Trek 400, an even nicer Trek 1000 and the nicest of all, the Trek 1200.  My first thought, when I came across this small framed Trek 400, was that I had, at last, found a bicycle that might interest my wife.  The bicycle was in great shape, just the right size and pretty to boot.

As it turned out, she showed about as much interest in riding the Trek 400 as she did in joining me for a jaunt on an early nineties Motobecane tandem  that I brought home a year or so earlier.

The Trek 400 as found had seen little use if component condition is any indication.  And no wonder.  The bicycle must have been a nightmare to ride with the saddle tilted forward as much as it was.  I might add, that I frequently come across old road bicycles that are obviously set up improperly to impart any sort of ride comfort.  Knowing how to adjust a vintage road bicycle to fit you is a very important consideration!
