So should i buy that put about $200 into it and save myself $100 or is it better just to have a new stock 4300?
Why would you need/want to put $200 into the '04 Trek 4100?
If there is something amiss and you need to do it, then go with the 4300.
If there isn't anything wrong with it and you want to upgrade $200 worth of stuff, then still go with the 4300.
If there is nothing wrong with the '04 and it works fine, I would say go with whichever one is sold from an LBS. I wouldn't buy a used bike from anyone that isn't a respected member of the cycling community. If the seller is something of that stature, by all means, save yourself $300. But, of you are just saving $100, go the the 4300.
