    Back in 1983 through 85, the 700 series bikes were the top of the Trek line followed closely by the 600 line. They all had double butted Reynolds 531C frames and forks. The X20s were touring bikes and the X60s were most race oriented. The X00 and X30's had intermediate components. In 1983, it seems that all 600 models shared the same frame, and were differentiated by components. All had Diacompe sidepull brakes (even the "touring" model), Sugino cranksets and Suntour shifting components. The 630, I believe had a "convertible" double/triple crankset. I have a '84 620 and love it. In '84 and especially '85, the touring models became more differentiated from the other models, with longer chainstays and cantilever brakes. All had 27" wheels, but I found that conversion to 700s is trivial. The bike likely has 126mm rear spacing, and, being steel, should take 130mm wheels without issue.

    The bike at Phoenix has a triple crankset (I think) and the rear derailleur was replace with newer Shimano model. I don't know if the wheels are original.

    Someone should adopt this classic tandem, whose owners have been trying to sell it for weeks. For less than $450, U.S.-made steel frame, 27" 48h wheels, Arai drum brake, and, wait for it, 3x5 half step gearing!

    There's a guy doing a Kickstarter to convert a Food Truck into a Mobile Bike Repair Truck. backing can get you a pretty good deal on tune-ups.

    $40 for a regular tune-up, you go to him.
    $60 for a regular tune-up, he comes to you.
    $85 for an advanced tune-up, you go to him.
    $100 for an advanced tune-up, he comes to you.

    Would one of you shorter people that can use a 56 cm frame buy this bike to keep it from taunting me much longer?

    It's a 1978 Raleigh Super Course with 531 tubing, Cyclone derailleur and Suntour barcon shifters for $200.

    The fact that this is apparently for shorter people and yet is like 3 sizes too big for me either amuses me or makes me feel bad.

    If you ask Dismal, you should be riding a bike that is three sizes too big for you. So it makes perfect sense.
