Here are some pics of the trek 700. The SN is: I180604776 This ten letter/number combination doesn't seem to correspond well to any of the info on the trek site, but judging by the color and components it appears to be a late 90s model.
Frame and Fork are very very good
Brakes are very good
FD and RD are very good
Shifters are very good
Front wheel is very good
Stem, handlebars, and headset all are good, but check out the cracks in the rubber seal on the stem; I wonder if it can be replaced?
Rear wheel--need new cones or maybe new wheel.
Brake levers--both are bent and need to be replaced
No saddle or seat post
BB seems okay (see pics) but seals need to be replaced and I am not sure where I can get them?
Crank set--see pics, but needs to be replaced
The wheel set is Weinmann 700c X 35 or maybe 38--the tire size seems to say 38, but all of the specs I can find indicate that 35s were the original sizes. Bikeparts sells a Weinmann for $28.00 plus shipping (here is the link: http://www.bikepartsusa.com/bikepart...gory=wheel-700
I am looking around for replacement cones, but for $28.00 it would be easier to buy the new wheel. Hows the experience with Weinmann wheels? The price seems almost too good for me to also expect that they are well made and will hold up for any length of time.
BB--can I get the seals and refurbish or can I replace? I assume the threading in standard and I wonder if a new BB cartridge will fit? if so, can I get the right axle length?
All ideas gladly accepted
