This one right here is in impressive working condition save for a few cosmetic imperfections (see photos). The scuffs, dings, and wear on the frame are from being scratched with the bike rack, U-lock, by natural elements, loose road pebbles, by the rider (not deliberately, of course) and, quite possibly, by poor hornets/fireflies/little floating aliens colliding at high speed onto the bikeframe, but absolutely not from crashes. I bought this bike from my cousin's classmate who just finished his MA and elected to return to Mexico to pursue his teaching career there (awesome guy!). So he did not want to spend a lot on shipping the bike and my cousin convinced him to just sell it to me instead. I've always wanna have this bike ever since Trek first launched it; I just wasn't able to afford its more than $2,000 initial price tag since I was still a ramen-eating college student back then. So I'm selling right now because the bike has been left merely to gather dust and, perhaps with further neglect, rust while being u-locked for days on end in the garage. Owing to a busy schedule, a recent inclination to the sedentary lifestyle, and a recent injury, I don't see myself on the drops any time in the near future. And, perhaps after having overheard all the exciting TV commentary during this recently concluded Tour de France and after knowing for a fact that a Latino cyclist finally won the entire thing (note: this bike was originally based in Monterrey, Mexico--see images), the still u-locked Trek 5000 might not put up with my no-road-bike-rides-sh*t anymore. Over the past few days, the bike been clamoring for 100-mile-or-more rides and those perfectly paved open roads rarely seen within LA County limits. I mean, who am I to deny its call? The efficient chainset makes gear shifting smooth and precise. The entire groupset is of the Ultegra / Shimano 105 variety, the Cadillac of bike componentry. It has a compact chainset which gives the bike an impressive range of gears, ideal for steep climbs without compromising weight. Given the frame material and groupset, this bike is incredibly light. And in spite of it being so lightweight, the bike still effortlessly manages to absorb all those otherwise ball-busting bumps you get on the road. I don’t know how it does it--it just does, every single time. No need to fear those potholes and ramps with this one! This model is the predecessor to the Trek #Madone series (they're pretty much the same bike, if you ask me, except for the astounding difference in price), that tidbit adds even more value to this particular Trek 5000. And it was released on the very year that Lance Armstrong “won” his 7th and final #Tour de France championship. This is also the last year that Trek made a carbon frame with conventional road geometry right here in the #USA. Not to mention, the OCLV is the highest quality, handmade #American carbon fibre material. Many of the concurrent Trek releases were made with TCT carbon but this one right here was crafted with the more stable, much superior OCLV carbon material.

As stated in the final part of the description:
"#RaceXlite seatpost Bontrager Hollow Race Lux bike seat Saddle adjusts accordingly to your riding position Equipped with Shimano #Ultegra Componentry"
Perhaps the saddle position looks like that is due to myself embarking from the bike. If that's your only criticism of the bike, then, by logic, there is nothing wrong about it.

Seat post height and saddle position looks very uncomfortable

It can be easily adjusted. Not a problem.
Although I understand what you mean. It's just that for this pictorial, I dunno how it turned out that way cos that's no way to ride any bike at all.
