    Hi David:

    The Trek is a good looking bike, but I've seen vintage carbon go for much less. The price might be fair but I would pass. I bought a Giant Cadex 980c for $150. It was a very nice bike and rode well. If you are patient, you can find one at a better price. I sold mine because the right buyer came along. This was one of my more profitable flips (I still have the carbon seatpost and saddle). This was mine after I rehabbed it:

    +1 $450 is dreamland. Lugged carbons have lowish value around here. DT shifter bike, 20 years old, pass, pass, pass.

    Original MSRP is a joke too. The 1993 Trek 2300 had an MSRP of $1400, and it had a much more desirable Shimano 600 STI 8 speed drivetrain.

    +2 Price is too high. I paid $240 for a Specialized Epic (similar bike) with DT shifters. I'd say $350 max on the Trek, and that's if it's in perfect working order.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    THANK YOU all, gentlemen! i'm not in the market for CF just yet, but you have saved me a goodly amount of money anyway. Now I have different expectations from the market. I appreciate the opinions of every one of you.

    My son's 2100 (same f/f, w/105 STI) set me back $300. I wouldn't pay that much more for (downtube) 600.
