As you are all aware i am looking for a new bike, i came across this bike for an insane price.
Its an 02 Trek STP400
Heres the specs.
Frame - OCLV Carbon softail
Shock - RS Race SID
Fork - RS Race SID
Wheelset - Bontrager racelite tubeless
Tyres - Bontrager revolt super-x
Saddle/Seatpost/handlebar/stem - Bontrager racelite
Headset - Cane creek
Front derailer - Shimano XTR
Rear derailer - Shimano XTR SGS
Shifters - Shimano XTR
Brakes - AVID SD/XTR levers.
The big exciting fact is, i can get this for five hundred pounds off the retail price, making it well within my range.
Should i snap this up, its a last minunte deal, and i have the money.
Are there any downfalls to Carbon fibre i should know about? I read that it can erode easily with chain grease is this true, please tell me all you know about this bike and its components, i have read all of the info available online, and it looks like the perfect peice.
Thanks very much, and i hope you can help me with this.
