The House of Cogs is very pleased to present this modern classic Trek 5500 OCLV 120 frameset in size 58cm! This frameset comes from the collection of an aging, affluent rider and will arrive in the very good to excellent used condition seen in the included photographs. This frame was handcrafted in Waterloo, Wisconsin using Trek's own "OCLV 120" carbon fiber with Bontrager Race X Lite fork (carbon legs & crown, aluminum alloy steerer).
A classic Trek blue, gray, and white paint finish was then applied with understated but very "Pro" Shimano and Bontrager decals for the chain stays. Size 58cm (center of BB to top of seat tube) with a center-to-center horizontal top tube length of 57.2cm and head tube length of 14cm. The included and original Cane Creek S6 1-1/8 headset features cartridge bearings and still turns silky smooth.
The fork was left quite long and accommodates a standard threadless stem and the included 40mm spacer stack. A throwback to recent but truly simpler times, this OCLV frame will provide years of reliable and legendarily smooth high-performance with the added ease of external cable routing! Likewise, an English-threaded bottom bracket will provide the perfect foundation for creak-free use. Total module weight clocks in at 1840 grams. 100mm spaced fork and 130mm spaced rear dropouts mean that the possibilities are endless for your preferred build with anything from a period-correct Dura-Ace 9 or 10-speed groupset all the way up to the latest 11 or 12-speed offerings.
Overall condition is a conservative 6.5 out of 10 with typical signs of infrequent use these past many years such as the odd blemish from contact during use/travel/transport. Faint signs of use appear throughout, mostly from cable and tire rub and component installation. The only notable bit of damage to the paint finish is seen on the driveside "Trek" logo on the side of the top tube, as seen in the pics. I suspect this occurred on a bike rack during transport and is not more than "skin deep, " the deepest part of the scratch removed a very small amount of clear coat.I have just completed a thorough, multi-hour cleaning and polishing of the entire package and it came out beautifully. Bottom bracket threading is razor sharp and all the other threaded aspects such as the downtube cable stops, water bottle bosses, rear derailleur hanger, and seat post clamp have also checked out 100% ready to rock for the new owner. This frame simply needs your imagination and build kit to make for an heirloom-quality build. Please see the included pics of the actual frameset that you will receive.
