Re-furbing 1998 Trek 7000

Hey Folks,

I don't know if this should go into the classic/vintage area or not. If so, let me know and I'll ask the mods to move it.

I have a 1998 Trek 7000 that I haven't ridden in about 6 years and I'd like to refurb it a bit. Basically, it needs a new wheel set, new drivetrain and possibly a new fork. Otherwise, the frame is in fine shape as are the brakes.

That said, would it be worth it to replace at least the wheel set and drivetrain? If so, any ideas? I've been out of MTBing for so long that I'm pretty clueless about what's possible.

I really just need something comparable to what came with the bike (listed below), which I believe were middle-of-the-line at the time.

--------------------------------------------------
Fork: Rock Shox Indy XC

Components: Group Mountain Mix
Brakeset: Avid 1D-10 brakes, Avid AD-1.0 L levers
Shift Levers: Shimano STX-RC RapidFire SL
Front Derailleur: Shimano STX top-swing, top-pull
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore LX SGS
Crankset: Shimano STX-RC, 24/34/42 teeth
Bottom Bracket: Shimano BB-UN52, 113mm spindle

Wheels: Hubs, Shimano STX-RC
Rims: Matrix Swami, 32-hole
--------------------------------------------------

Here it is on BikePedia.

Thanks a ton for any feedback.

If it helps, one of my wife's bikes is a 98 Gary Fisher Aquila. It is still Org except for the seat, tires and shifters/brake levers. She loves it down to the old out dated, Indy fork. She will not let me replace it. That frame you have, if its still in good shape is a really nice frame. I personally would only replace what is broke, and keep it vintage for as long as you can, unless you are looking to do some real hard core riding.

As far as posting here, most, not all, of the people in this section, do not think past 2005. So you would do better in the vintage section.
