After years of searching, I finally found and bought this US POSTAL spec 2002 Trek 5200 in 2020 with the intention of giving it a “freshen up” to use as a second bike / poor weather bike. Well, one thing led to another and I fell in love with the “Project Postal” build, throwing a little more money at it than I had originally planned.
I may be biased, but I think the results have been worth it! I really do love riding this classic machine. Below are a collection of posts detailing the build and of course the finished result. Enjoy!
