I currently own a Trek 1500 that is just a little too long in the top tube for me. I recently bought a Specialized Tricross Triple (The base model). I seriously, only need one on-the-road type bike that does NOT need to be a "Road Bike". I have had the 1500 on Craigslist for a month or 6 weeks or so with very little interest. So I am weighing my options:
- Get a Shoter Stem / Make the 1500 fit better and have two bikes
- Cannibalize the 1500 for the 105s and have a set of "road" wheels for the TriX
- Keep Trying to sell the 1500 and then buy nicer Brifters and extra wheels for the TriX if I really need them.
- Sell the 1500, leave the components alone for now and take the wife on vacation
I guess that the button-side brifters that came with the TriX work well enough but I really miss the ability to shift in the drops that the 105s have, even if I do so very rarely. In the long run though, is it even really worth it?
