Trek 2200 SL Year 2001 @ asking price $200


I am considering the above Trek 2200 SL, advertised at $200. Curious about people's experiences with it and potential issues I should look for. BBV link below (please comment on the price if you feel so inclined). I am in the process of searching for the corresponding catalog, so if you have the link already, please send it along. Thanks in advance, Dan

When our round tube aluminum Treks were stolen way back when, we replaced with 2200 series Trek as above.

It didn't take me long to figure out I'm a bigger fan of the previous gen.

Round tube aluminum Treks have a nice, compliant ride.

The triangular downtube Alpha SL series, not so much. Stiffer, harsher and overall not as enjoyable for me.

I limited myself to shorter rides on the 2200 for this reason. Eventually I tired of the ride and sold it. So did the missus.

I have bought a Trek 2300 in Alpha SL Aluminium frame for a very reasonable price , I bought one because it was stiff and light and I wanted an US made Trek frame, it will be fitted Dura Ace 7800 and with Zipp 404 wheels. A friend of mine had also a yellow 2300 equipped with 7900 and Zipp 808 clincher wheels , very fast and stable bike.

it will be a fun ride... if you're 5'1" or shorter... !

looks to be in nice condition... $200 is a fair price. Check to make sure the Brake Tracks aren't worn out, and that the Wheel Bearings aren't WAY too loose to cover up bad axle cones...
if either are bad, then the price should drop by $50 or so, Quickly.

what parts group/Brifters? Working Ultegra brifters are worth $100 a pair and up....
those bars are so big they make the 50cm frame look even smaller... odd... i bet someone was trying to resize a Way Too Tiny bike to fit them...

Aluminum frames can be deceiving for sizing by eyeball. With that head tube length plus the horizontal top tube, the frame size might be 52 cm, which could fit someone who is 5'8" or so pretty well.

Great price, great bike. Hand-built in the USA! I'll bet you'll have a lot of fun with it.

the decal on the frame claims a 54cm size... that would be from the center of the BB to the top of the seat tube, i'd guess... the true measure is to measure from the center of the seat tube to the center of the steering head tube in a level horizontal line...

and those crazy bars stretch things for a longer reach... a longer reach makes for more room to tuck on downhills.

hey.. if it fits, ride it.

Bicyclebluebook is a ridiculous site. The owners are hoping they can make a business out of it but a lot of the pricing is highly questionable. Heck two used bikes of the same make/model/year are never the same, condition-condition-condition, but they expertly tell you that this bike is $201, plus or minus $3 pesos.

In my mind, $200 for that Trek is a more than fair price. That said...

This thread could not be more timely for me. I jus finished this Velosport, which is ready for it "brake lever fit" test ride. Pretty sure that I am on the money now, but gotta be sure before I blow $2.00 US on cushion bar tape (only got three sets left)...


And my next project is either a Cambio Rino 400...


or my recently acquired Trek 2200SL. And, for what it is worth, I put the Trek in the Park Tool stand about ten minutes ago....


But there is a problem - very narrow Rolf wheels. Looks like I gotta go with 700c x 23 or, with luck, 25s...
