Manufactured with Pride by Trek Warranty Repair Department?

Hello,

I came across this frame for sale. The guy claimed to be a Trek Racer who won it in a race. It is a Trek Elite 9.8 Mountain Bike Frame. My concern is that there is a sticker on it that reads: Manufactured with Pride by the Trek Warranty Repair Department.

What does this mean? How much should offer for it?

I measured it with a Frame Gauge, and it is straight.

Thank you

Shih Fa

My guess is it's the Trek equivalent of a refurbished computer(used/damaged but repaired by certified techs).

You can always call Trek headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin, 920-478-2191, and ask them.

It could be a new frame built to replace a frame that needed to be replaced by Warranty. But calling is your best option.

My guess is new since it says manufactured.
