Opinions on Trek 4000 series frame
Hello all. I have a Trek 4300 that I have had for the last couple of years. 2006 model I think. Now that I had to replace the rear wheel I am getting the upgrade bug (I have the same problem with cars).
I was curious if the 4000 series frame was a nice enough starting point. I was looking at some Shimano XT-ish stuff, but I don't want to slap a bunch of parts on if this frame won't hold up.
I ride mostly back and forth to work, but I do take occasional forays onto trails. I am a newbie, but I would like to start doing more off-road riding.
I searched, but didn't come up with anything.
In these conditions the frame will hold up. At the same time, under these conditions, major upgrades would be mostly pointless...

Under what conditions would you say the frame would not hold up? What is your definition of "not hold up?" Do you mean break, or merely not be appropriate for the application?
