    the PO of the CR-7 broke off the fork droppout when the bike was new, sat for 12 years unused. Added the Answer fork, still didn't ride it.

    I know what everyone here thinks of Treks (and for the most part I agree) but I always thought those carbon tubed/aluminum stayed bikes were sharp.

    Every party has its pooper.

    And those look like metal stays on that Trek.

    Yep, they made a lot of them that way, on the road side too. They did 3 tube carbon, and 7 if you wanted to pay extra, and just HAD to have as much carbon as possible. :D

    Great parts bikes the both, if you're planning on riding either make sure your life insurance is paid up. 8300 had similar lateral stiffness to a large bowl of jello and the tubes are glued into the lugs with hot French semen (possibly). the CR7's failings are detailed in another thread, but that looks like a nice fresh XT group on there.

    i had a 8700. hmmm... talk about a dead feeling bike.:eek:
    it just gave me an extra respect for steel.
    other than that i liked the paint, the tange ultra light fork and the trek rims.

    Hello mechagouki,

    this sounds interesting, so I registered and searched the forums. Couldn't find the thread you are speaking of, though :-(

    Do you remember where, or have a link for me? Thx, Andrs
