Stuart is obsessed with anything that got to do with black. He stays just near to where we are located and is an extremely fierce looking neighbour but is a happy man with a beer.Stuart came by our place one day, stating that his uncle has an old bike for him. Having already own a Specialized Tarmac and loving it, he was keen to discover what old bike did his Uncle had in store for him.
Tucked away in an old bike box was this well maintained TREK 5500! The 5500 was considered as one of the lightest frameset around in the 1990s.
We gave this bike a good makeover, replacing the old cables and holders while making sure the bike was in sparking condition and here we are, with a very nice 5500 that is sure to get alot of attention on the road!
Did we mention that Stuart bakes awesome roast pork? Don't go eating alot of roast pork and break this 5500 Stuart!
