BUILDING THE TREK 400

I did not build the Trek 400.  I inspected the bicycle carefully, lubricated the easy to get at stuff, and tuned the bike up.  Tuning was a non event, since the darn thing was in very good condition and had not been used enough to go out of tune.  I pressurized the completely flat tires, removed the toe straps for the test ride, and away the two of us went.

Commenting on the Trek's ride qualities is something that I really cannot do, since the bicycle was way too small for me.  Everything worked, exactly as it was intended to, but I still could not get a feel for the ride.  I couldn't even get a reasonable leg extension, when pedaling.  All that said, when I consider the apparent quality of construction, coupled with the quality materials and a user friendly component grouppo, I cannot help but believe that the lady who owns the bicycle now, really appreciates the ride, this lovely old American bicycle offers.
