    Trek 660

    First, sorry for the lack of pics.. yet.

    I bought a 1984 Trek 660 a few months back, and have slowly been piecing it together (non-original). I finally realized yesterday that I have pretty much everything, in a kind of mismatch way. It's mostly 8 speed 105 with down tube shifters. This is my first bike with downtube shifters, as STI was the requirement for my first road bike 10 years ago.

    I have to say WOW! Downtube shifters shift so quickly, with such light action, I'm amazed that I've waited this long. I love the ride of this bike, though my rear is quite used to a Selle italia SLR, so I'm not sure how the B17 is going to work out in the long run.

    Pics to follow soon!

    Sweet bike. I like the stem and saddle.

    I have an '87 560 Pro Series which I love. A 660 is on my wishlist. That's a real beauty. FWIW, I recently had to upgrade my wheelset and had Velocity Fusions built for it on the original hubs. It got better.

    I've got an old steel Trek as well. Love the way it rides.

    Most of the group is 1055(ish) 8 speed, so not period correct. Still casually looking for a matching crank. It's an awesome ride.
