A few weeks back at a Saturday morning rally with about 500 riders, I won a raffle prize -- a Trek 1420. When they called I was estatic, but after driving 75 miles, saw that I won a "classic" bike, well used, and donated by someone who couldn't keep riding due to knee problems. I think Trek made the 1420 for a few years 1987-1990 or so? I have a 2001 Trek MultiTrak 800 hybrid for the road, and was going to buy a road bike shortly, so I'm wondering if it's worth keeping & servicing this bike. It has downtube shifters, which I'd want to have my LBS upgrade in a new brake/shifter combo, as I'm not adept at shifting down there with one had on the wheel going downhill at 30 mph. The existing tires have good tread but some bubbles in the sidewalls, so I assume they need replacing, it needs a new seat, and probably new BB bearings.. It's big (54cm) but fits me, and I'm 6'2" -- but I'm also over 50 and overweight. (I just started riding 2 years ago for fitness & to lose weight.) Would you fix it up for a couple of hundred bucks, or sell it as-is on eBay and use the ($200?) proceeds for a new bike later? I'm still OK with my MultiTrak. Thanks for your ideas.
