She is fast and light at only 24+ pounds
Trek had Harley Davidson Design do the artwork for the Y Five-0, The Y Five-0 was Treks top model sold in 1997
This Y Five-0 comes to you with a Full Shimano XTR drive-train, and all of Treks best & lightest offerings went into this iconic Y Five-0
The Y Five-0 is loaded for action you will love the way this bike rides: The IRC Mytho / Searac XC tires on the Mavic Crossmax Ceramic wheels with Mavic hubs are fast and light, point and go. She flies over jumps with ease she tracks straight, she shifts like a fine watch, & when you hit the Remote lockout she shreds hills like a Charging Mountain Goat, the Shimano XTR brakes stops so quickly your eyeballs will pop out
This “Y Five-0 is nearly mint
Here is your chance to acquire a ultimate & rare iconic mountain bike you rarely see. Hang on your office wall or ride like the wind as you and you’re cycling friends will be pleasantly surprised when you take your first ride and you leave them eating your dust!
Riding the Y Five 0
“On my initial ride it was immediately obvious how different this bike was to anything I’d ever ridden before. The lightness really made it feel like there was nothing beneath me. And the acceleration was unlike anything else.
it was perfect. It was truly effortless pedaling up the hills coming out, and one thing becoming obvious was I was always in the higher gears.
With the hollow carbon frame, the sound it makes is amplified and would be quite unusual to anyone who’s not heard it before. The rear Strata air shock is interesting. The lockout is just magic! Not only can you lock the shock entirely, but you can vary the softness of the shock. Flying downhill is when you have the shock fully active, and for climbing it’s locked out so the bike performs like a hardtail.”
She weighs in at only 24.78 pounds!
This model of Trek Y bike was top of the range for 1997. Although the frame looks like that used on the other Y11, Y22, and Y33 of the same period, the Y Five-0 is lighter, stronger. It’s meant to be a high performance racing bike, so the lightest of components are fitted. The handlebars and seat post are of carbon fiber lite type. The fork and shock are of the air type which eliminates heavy springs. The Crossmax Ceramic Wheels-Hubs are the lite French made Mavic, even the Quick Release Levers are Mavic while individual component weights might seem insignificant, and when you add it all up it makes a huge difference.
Trek Y-series History
During 1995 Trek released a bike design that would revolutionize the design of mountain bikes for several years. It was called the Y series and was made from what Trek called OCLV, or Optimum Compaction Low Void. In plain English, that’s Carbon Fiber. It would have been one of the most expensive top of the range mountain bikes then available. The revolutionary thing was the Y frame with a URT (Unified Rear Triangle) which was really the ultimate in simplicity for a full suspension design.
It won an industrial design award.
It wasn’t long before everyone else was copying it, though usually with only a two piece “Y” or variants thereof and differing pivot points for the URT. There was some mention of Trek attempting to seek compensation from GT for infringing their patent. But that is another story So, next time you see a Y frame bike, remember it came from Trek’s Y-11
Here are 2 questions we get often:
How can you tell if a bike has LOW Miles or use?
First look at the Crank arms, brake, shift levers, and see if the original brand name are still there , grips ,saddle are good to check too , but the often get changed out by a owners personal preference.
When someone tell you this bike has had only 2 -3 short rides in its lifetime, it better not have any major scuffs on the crank arms and brand name should still be clearly on the shifters/brake levers.
We go out of our way to acquire mint bicycles and pay top dollar for them.
What is the green plastic film stuff on the grips, & saddle?
After new grips, saddle are installed we wrap them in a protective stretch wrap so they don’t get dirty from road testing or while performing service, so as to make sure they arrive at your door looking new.
No dents, No cracks but she has a few scrapes scratches, from storage and while being transported. they are consistence with its age and lite use. Please see all the pictures.
