    Trek 750

    A friend of mine has this bike for sale and he would like to know approx. how much to ask for it. It's in very good shape.

    If I were in the market for such a ride, I'd be willing to pay $60-$80 dollars for it.

    Seeing what similar items sell for on sites like eBay is a good way of establishing a number.

    I've seen them advertised for $250 to $200. It's a high-quality double-butted cromoly frame made in the USA. Trek 750 was top of the line with good components and it should have nice eyeletted wheels. The lower quality models were 720 and 700, which had frames made in taiwan from cheep steel. A Trek 720 might be worth $100 - $80 (I sold one for $80), but this is better. This would make a nice touring conversion - see the pannier mounts on the fork legs. Measure the chainstays and compare to a Trek 520 of the same frame size.

    I bought just the frame for a 1991 750 recently doesn't look quite as nice as this for $150, and there were 17 bidders - and 35 dollars shipping. What size is this ?
    The slopping of the top tube look different than mine - send me the serial number and I'll tell you how old. I'd be interested before you list. mw

    Could anyone give me a comparison between an older 800 and 850 as far as suitability for touring.
    The 850 has Rock shox, the 800 is rigid. Thanks.

    The difference between the 800 and 850 is about the difference between the 700 and 750. The 850 has got a better frame with much better components. 850 should be double-butted and made in the USA, while the 800 will be made in Taiwan from cheaper tubing. I'd swap the fork on the 850 for a rigid one since early rock shox elastomers were very flexy. The 850 has a threaded 1'' steerer.

    As a 6' person, could I make this bike fit me? I saw this exact bike on craiglist and I may be interested in buying it.

    Actually, the 790 was top of the line for the 1990-1991 years and it was later supplanted by the 7900.

    I was not aware of the 790. I do know that 7900 was made with cool carbon tubes bonded to aluminium lugs.

    As far as I know

    The 750 was the top steel multi track bike built in 1991 - there were a couple different versions. It had investment cast lugs, True Temper AT ATB tubeset and was spread 135 in the back. In the multi track category there was a Trek 7900, Easton Alum with Shimano Dx cpmponents - in the same category, but very different bikes.

    The following site has a much expanded list from when I last checked a few years back:
