OK, got my old Trek 8300 back up and running.
I use it for geocaching so its dedicated to pavement, sidewalks, biketrails and occasional dirt path along canals. Its days of XC use and abuse are over, mostly 'cause the clear coat is bubbling off the carbon fiber. I checked the frame over carefully and cannot find any damage to the carbon, but decided not to take any chances. (I also weigh a good 80lbs more then in my heyday).
