    09 Trek 6000 for $600 or 02 6700 Disc for $400?

    Both appear to be in great condition. 6700 is older but Shimano hydraulics are reviewed much more favorable then Avid mechanical B55s. Both being same condition would you buy the 6700 and buffer $200 for upgrades/fixes or bank on the new 6000?

    I actually found an 09 Trek 4300 disc for $250 that I haven't seen pics of yet either... So that's:

    09 Trek 6000 - $600
    02 Trek 6700 - $400
    09 Trek 4300 Disc - $250 (this one sounds too cheap but we'll see)

    New 6000. Discs from 2002 typically suck. And if they're hydros they probably need to be bled, which is gonna be a PITA.

    What's your opinion of the Avid BB5s? Do they need adjusted after each ride or does it depend on how much thrashing occurs in any given ride? I've never had disc brakes on a bike b4.

    New is better than old, in the case of bikes
