comments and thoughts on an old Trek 8000
There's an old Trek 8000 frame in the shop right now that I'm thinking of building up as my first 'real' mountain bike. not sure what year, but it has a bonded alu frame. i'm wondering:
- how does it compare to a newer alu frame, like a recent kona cinder cone or an entry level rocky mtn frame? (the only thing i could think of is the lack of disc tabs on the trek)
- what would be the max travel fork i could install on it?
- is it worth building up?
thanks in advance.
