Mid 90's Trek 8700 Carbon Composite

I have a vintage Trek 8700 hard tail MTB. Carbon composite frame that is pretty light. Phil hubs that have very little rolling resistance. Been in the garage for years but all the parts are there. I found a Vintage road bike that I'd like to buy but need to see this one first to save up for it. Any guess on it's value? I can add pics later after a proper bath, lube and air.

Depends on your area, condition of the bike, whether it's ride able, etc...

If it's original components (except wheels), the sum of the parts is likely more valuable than the complete bike. The Phil hub wheels would be more valuable than the original Deore XT.

We need more info and hopefully some pictures. You won't be able to post photos until you have 10 posts, but you can upload photos to your own album and others can post those pics for you.

For reference, this type of bike has been discussed somewhat recently:

1992 Trek 8700 Composite, 95% Original, Awesome Condition

I picked up an 8900 with XT & XTR components & good wheels in about 8.5-9/10 condition last fall for $400. As was mentioned..condition, a major factor.

I have one of those, might as well be cast iron its boat anchor in the garage. IMO not trending, the tube and glue carbon 3 tube alloy stays. Mine is mostly XT with LX cranks twist shifter, XT Parallax hubs. I bought this for my boys, they grew out of it I've been trying to sell a couple of seasons. I've only had one perspective, it's really fresh, great shape. I've been thinking of putting a hard nose, the rockshox I think is what's holding it back from being wanted.

Most bikes from this time/style I would say run maybe $300, but this is no Homegrown in popularity. $225 I don't think you can get a good value of the Phil hubs in the sale of the 8700
