I owned a 1993 Trek 1100 which was about the same bike with a triple. It's an aluminum frame with a chrome-moly fork. The ride was very harsh. The quill stem did break after many, many miles of riding. Other than that, it was a very good bike. I think I paid around $700 for it.

I like Retro Grouch's idea with the $50 bills, but I'd only bring 4 of them.
