    I'd say get a frame you like with horizontal dropouts and build a coaster wheel to fit it. It'd be so much cheaper than $600. See if there's a local co-op to help you...

    $100 is probably a fair price, assuming it's in good condition. You might squeeze $150 out of it, if you're willing to wait for someone who cares about he Trek name. But, be prepared to deal with...

    That's what I was thinking. I might try to crack it open, but I fear I'll do more harm than good. The 2 that work now are definitely "enough"; if I break the whole unit, I'll be SOL, but then I'll...
