    Is it worth it?

    hey my friend has decided to sell his 2002 model Trek 4300. its in good condition,but sumtimes the gears switch when not asked, and its rusted at the fork and strached. he wants 50 dollars. should i buy it? or is it not worth it? the fork is fine too.

    thanks!

    @ 349.99 new, $50 don't seem much. I don't like much about the components or the bike though myself.... The RST fork only has 2" of travel too.

    i have a hardrock sport ( specialized) and i want the trek as my back-up bike. it does NOT have an RST fork, but an "insync" which is alittle better. he bought it new for like 300-350. i'm guna look at it again before i buy.I dunno, it might be a 2003 model? all i know is that its either a 2002 or 2003 model. i really think since we are best friends, that i am getting a deal, but i'll leave it up to you guys....

    $50 is worth it.

    Heck, for that little money, I strip the shifters and derailleurs off of it, turn it into a SS and ride the heck out of it. I'd even, swap the crap fork for a rigid (probably $30 from a shop) and go full retro, SS Rigid (maybe we should have a new designation SSR).

    I'd go for it, regardless of the condition.
