    Bought this in 1991. Still have the frame.


    Is 1995 retro enough?


    Product of Wisconsin, by American craftsmen.


    My 1st Trek I bought in 1995, a carbon hybrid I converted to drop bars, Shimano 600EX brake/shifter combo, and able to take both 2.5inch knobbies and 38C street tires, pulled my Burley trailer while my kids were younger.

    Here's my collection of American craftsmanship. Also have a Gunnar Sport but no photo. I'll have to correct that.

    Great paramount build. If I ever owned a nice one like that I think it'd ride it exactly the same. Nice!

    1996 Klein Quantum Pro with 7800 Dura Ace and some mint condition Spinergy Rev X wheels.

    I also made a shim to allow 1 1/8th stems so I could put on a new short reach shallow drop set of bars.

    Current ride-- '90s filet-brazed Simonetti. Has the 'Brazed by Mike Howard" decal on the stay. I emailed him and he thought it was a later version based on S/N, and very likely Tange tubing.

    Masi begat Masi of California, which begat Confente, Wizard and Medici, and the last was renamed Simonetti after a dispute with another maker using the Medici name.

    Still feels Italian, though....

    Custom built Jonny Cycles (from Wisconsin, he's since retired). Phil hubs on Campy Lambda aero rims (hand polished as best as possible). Nitto bars, stem, post. Dura-ace crank/chainring. I don't actually use those pedals, I swap in Look when riding. But the cages look nice.

    You'll have to forgive the white electrical tape on the bars. I had a bit of a crash and prefer to keep bar tape as long as possible

    Made in north San Diego County by a British framebuilder (Dave Moulton) out of Italian (Columbus) tubing.

    So I guess it's "American."
