Trek 820 Aluminum: Why only one year?
I just picked one of these up for use as a winter beater. I got a great deal on it, it has an aluminum frame so I'm not worried about it rusting and all the components are bottom-end so I can fix it cheep if something breaks. According to Bikepedia it was ONLY made in 1999. Does any one know why Trek only produced this bike for one year? My concern is that there was some sort of maunufaturing defect in the frames or something.
