I'm wondering how these bikes are regarded. I'm looking at a '98 Trek 8500. It's listed as having a RaceFace crank, XTR-SGS rear derailleur, XT front der, and XT brakes/levers. Looking up specs online it looks like it has a Manitou SX-R fork, and Bontrager rims. From the pics online it looks a little beat up but it's listed as being in good condition. If the frame is a good size for me and I can snag a good deal on it, I may look at picking it up.
