    I am reading Craigslist ads and looking at pics.


    I think Trek 850 and 950 have the best components of the 8xx 9xx, respectively.
    I have the Trek files, and can sometimes guess the model, working back from paint.

    Non-Trek brands: I do not have a clue; I guess I should download files for them.

    I know that components might have been changed on any of these old bikes.
    Sometimes ads do not have model numbers, but have a reasonable picture;
    so, as an example, would a black rear derailer indicate plastic crap??

    I am trying for steel framed bike, if this matters.

    Moderator: I just realized that this might belong in the mtb forum or the general forum.
    I do not think I can move it, though I could put a posting in mtb forum with just a link to here.
