    The Treks are pretty solid but I've seen some like yours (carbon tubes, Al lugs) with failed joints due to corrosion. As long as the frame is kept relatively clean and dry you shouldn't have an...

    MSRP was $2200 new but this bike is in a strange no-mans land between classic and modern. Not old enough for any classic enthusiasts (carbon, STI, etc.) but too outdated for most people looking for a...

    +1 It's older than you think, with what's probably a very early suspension fork. That's actually a bad thing because most of those forks weren't that great when new (compared to modern forks) and...

    If you want it I wouldn't feel bad about paying $300. Whether that's a "fair" price or not, how often to you see SL Peugeots? I'd pay it, that's a sweet frame.

    Broken RD hanger would be a deal breaker for me unless I was planning to use it for fixed gear/SS use only.

    But I think it should bring $150 easy. In Chicago, $200 is probably possible.

    Without looking it up based on the decals this looks like an early-mid 1990s bike.

    The 520 is well known and goes for more money relative to lesser known touring frames. Despite the paint issues...

    While tread patterns like this are stupid and useless, I will still ride tires like this if I have to because it probably doesn't hurt much. Usually on tubulars. Slick tubulars are hard to find for...

    I'm not sure what your options are in Korea but over here there are still plenty of options for a good 8-speed chain. I can pick up a nice KMC or SRAM chain on ebay with a replaceable master link for...

    It is definitely a lot of compromise with tires. I put light-weight racing tires on my commuter for a while in search of more speed. All I got were more flats. After about three flats I said the hell...

    What about large diameter BB threads is a PITA? I never have a problem removing my square taper or external/Hollowtech II bottom brackets.

    But if I got a frame with a press fit bottom bracket now...

    No pictures = no appraisal. Especially when it's titanium! I'd like to see this one.

    It looks like a funny bike to me too. Can we see a picture with the wheels on?

    The only way to fix BB30 is to throw away your frame and buy one with a standard English threaded BB. Any design that takes a simple threaded interface and replaces it with a press fit is a step in...

    You can adjust it now and put the 12-30 on later. Keep in mind you will almost certainly need a longer chain for the new cassette (it's good to use a new chain on a new cassette anyway.) Check the...

    Look up what the "b-tension" screw is and what it does. Basically you need to take the RD off, remove the screw and thread it in from the opposite side, effectively making it "longer."

    Might I...

    +1 The only possible compatibility issue is the FD going low enough for a compact crank. The wheels, brakes, RD, crank, shifters, etc have not changed their method of mounting since the Y-foil.

    These are tough. They're super cool but you might have to be patient to find a buyer, unless you go the ebay route. If I needed to move them I'd ask $150/bike but I agree $300/bike is very fair....

    I don't think so, and I have no idea how they would work anyway. Like you said, just get the FD to match the shifter. That's all there is to it.

    As pointed out above, different indexed front...

    They've worked really well for lots of people for the last 25 years or so. They are a unique shape, not just a simple elliptical shape.

    Also, lots of people think they're stupid. I suppose it...

    Campy derailers are fine too provided you're using a Campy shifter. As far as cranks go you can pretty much mix and match them on any drivetrain you want. But for indexed shifting (generally) the...

    No no no. Putting a 1" headtube on so you could run 1" threaded would be WAY backwards. Just get a threadless fork. There are probably a million out there that would suit you, and if you don't cut...

    Wow what a rip off. Is this a bike shop or a pawn shop? This is the sort of nonsense I'd expect to see at a pawn shop. A bike shop should at least clean the darn thing, not to mention ask a sane...

    Seller was probably just trying to get rid of it. My advice (for next time) is that you need to JUMP at a great deal like this. Go look at the bike ASAP, if there's something wrong with it then...
