    I'll only get one if I'm suddenly given a cash windfall. So, nope. I'd like one but it doesn't mean I'll get one or have to have one. So, nope once again.

    My '04 5500

    Sorry for the poor backdrop and otherwise poor pic, but the wife refused to hang up a white sheet as a backdrop. I just added the Bonti Aeros three weeks ago, and as an aside - these are one great set of wheels. After demoing a set and before buying, I rode a new Madone for a weekend. Nice, but I will take mine, with the Aeros. I have also put a FSA K-Wing bar on, and a FSA setback post. Love it, but then I might not be totally objective.

    Here is my 2004 Project 1 5900 Triple. This thing climbs like a goat and with the Rolf Prima Elans is speedy on the flats. (Well, as speedy as I can be)

    I was thinking about lowering the stem or inverting it. That saddles is quite beefy. I agree. I think i will use it until my lower end gets use to riding then swap out for a selle or somthing.

    If i lower the stem i have no idea how to cut the fork tube to the right length.

    i think you CAN lower your stem WITHOUT cutting your fork tube. so just lower it bit and bit until you're real comfortable with ( once you're ready just go to your LBS and have them cut for you. it'll be quick and may be $ 20. or you can let it be and not cut it even when the stem is down. that way you can raise your stem later on ) about saddle, that's a personal thing since everyone is different. for me Selle Italia SLR, 135 grams work for me even for those 50+ miles.

    Here's how, but do you need to?

    For right now if you are experimenting with your position you can simply remove the top cap, loosen the stem, remove a spacer or two from under the stem and then replace the stem, adding the spacers on top of the stem, and then readjusting your headset. Or you can just flip the stem as you mentioned. This would let you keep more of your steer tube, which helps with the resale value...

    However, your position (and how low you want to go with your stem) depends entirely on how flexible your hamstrings are, how strong your core muscles are, and what your riding style is. Don't be bullied into dropping into an uncomfortably low position before your body is ready for it.

    If you can afford it, I would recommend getting fit by a qualified specialist (be prepared to pay $75-$200). This could be the most important investment for comfort as it can prevent neck/lower back pain by putting your body in its correct spot.

    As to your bars, a good ballpark adjustment is to position the flat section at the end of the ergo bars so it's parallel to the ground or pointing slightly down. Tweak as needed from there.

    Good luck, and have fun with your new bike!

    Trek 5000

    Heres mine. About 10 weeks old. 07 5000. Have 800 plus miles on it allready and am haveing alot of good rides. The ride quality is good and responsive and accelerates well, my only problem is the Bontrager race light crank set. The black chrome is starting to peel off and from sweating the chrome is starting to pit and bubble. I have waxed the crank about 15 times and no matter what after every ride the fowllowing day you see a new bubble in the chrome. I do have to take it to the shop and see what will happen. hopefully a new 105 crank set. Would be nice. But other than that no other issues except for cutting the rear tire and haveing to replace it from a piece of glass. The owner of the shop were I purchased the bike did tell me of trek warranting out the cranks due to the chrome pealing so I should be ok with that but hopefully not another race lite crank set but maybe a 105 instead as others have posted, Anyways enjoy the pic for I am enjoying the bike after 15 years of mountain biking.
