Trek 4500 (2013) (Sold)

This was my main mountain / city bicycle. The frame geometry of this bike, allowed it to be upgraded to 27.5" rims / wheels, as long as the tires were kept small. This is what i did for v.2 of this bike. I rode 2436.5 km on this bike before it was upgraded to v.2. This bike was sold on 2021.04.15
