so i am in the market for a decent (light) touring bike that i can also use for commuting (about 20 miles/day)
i have seen a few of trek's that are from the early/mid 80s and would like some feed back about how fun/reliable they tend to be
i am also curious as to the worth of these bikes
1984 Trek 620 touring bicycle
they said the wheelset has been upgraded from the original Helicomatic to a set of 700c clincher wheels with Specialized hubs and the rear derailleur is a Shimano XT.
but im not sure if i like where the shifters are located,
i was wondering if anyone has found the shifters being located at that particular area of the frame is at all cumbersome while mashing through the streets?
is this bike really worth $500?
if i can find a cheaper one, is there any notable issues with a 30 year old trek?
