    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.

    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.
    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
