Trek - Reynolds 531 - Ripping Fast City Bike Conversion
Coco’s Fast Baguette Inventory Update: arrived as a super cool #baguetteslayer from Albert 👋 and we built onto what he had done. As a cyclist, he was cool with the original down tube shifters, a long stem and a low rise bar, but we know many would prefer a shorter, taller stem and a bar with more rise. And when you get your hands higher, it is a longer reach to the downtube shifters so we swapped to Sunrace thumbies with Sunrace downtube stops. We swapped the rear wheel as the eyelets were pretty crusty and the front and rear are now mismatched but not annoyingly so. Trek 560, made in the USA, Reynolds 531. A terrific riding, very fast baguette procurement machine. 49 ST 53 TT $475
Size, seat tube: 49
We call these bikes baguette slayers, as they are the perfect city bike for casual errands, farmer's market runs, riding to work or bar hopping. Unlike the burrito slayer, which is based on a MTB chassis, the baguette slayer is based on a drop bar road bike. Has a straight back, heads-up, see over cars riding position but is going to be faster, more nimble, more twitchy and less forgiving of potholes.
Where the burrito slayer mountain bike conversions are burly, take anything thrown at them, the baguette slayers are more delicate and refined. Lighter weight too.
