Trek 6000

Does anyone know if the Trek 6000 comes with Shrader or presta valves?

95% sure that they're presta. Trek's been putting presta on alot of bikes, even 4300 disc. Which is stupid IMO cause someone buying a 500 dollar bike would want the schrader.

well, I can say from experience that most folks looking at 500 dollar bikes don't even know what the hell a presta valve is.

Exactly. Not that there's anything wrong with schrader valves. All my bikes run them and I'd rather have them than say Woods valves any day.
