Yup, a 620, appears to be an '84 based on the graphics. Also appears someone switched out the seat post. Not in the best nick; probably hasn't seen fresh grease this century. I picked up an '83 4?? with a couple minor upgrades for about this price. He could expect to fetch a lot more if he cleaned it up and knew how to market it. Has "attention flippers" written all over it.

Paint was close to perfect with just two chips and a dab of white touch up in one area near the BB. Groupset looked new. I ditched the saddle and replaced with a Brooks I had lying around. Blackburn rack hiding under the bags. Other than that, all the bike and bags needed was a bath and cleaner wax.

Glad to help, I'm always looking, even when I'm not buying. The touring gear alone was worth the $80. Congrats!

Not sure of the quality, but probably adequate to clean/chase existing threads, and the starting price is certainly reasonable. Probably prudent to check the thread spec with the seller:

^^^^^^^^ The description (BC24R + BC24L) suggests that it's RH + LH thread. Besides, if it were just RH thread, wouldn't you need only one?

Good catch; I missed that. Posted before the caffeine hit.

Besides, if it were just RH thread, wouldn't you need only one?
For a piloted tap set like this, it's good to have a tap on both sides to ensure that both sides are coaxial.

I can't make heads or tails of this item description:

Brent


"DescriptionMaterial: steelWeight: approx 2kgUses: Due to the damage of the threaded rod caused by the middle shaft set, the five-way thread has its own burr, the thread is too shallow, the thread is not concentric, and the paint residue is trimmed.Dental knife: The dental knife is made of titanium on the outer layer and is durable. The handle is equipped with a concentric rod to ensure the concentricity of the five-pass tooth. When used in combination with the cutting oil, it can not only protect the dental knife, but also smooth the tapped teeth and achieve good results.E17L: Five-way shaft cutter. Inch ( 1.37" BC24R), the right tooth is mounted on one side with a concentric column.E17R: Five-way shaft cutter. Inch ( 1.37" BC24L ), the left tooth is installed on the side without the concentric column."

Very nice Trek; belongs to a forum member. I checked it out yesterday and would have bought it, but itís way too big for me and parting it out felt all sorts of wrong. Looks better in person btw.
Sorry but I guess I donít know how to grab a CL pic on my phone and insert in a post.

How to post photos with a phone: Use your phone to find the nearest library or coffee joint that has a real computer.

Yeah, that's a tall cool one. Alas, my 6'4" friend has a total blind spot for C&V; he's bitten by the black carbon bug. He's even given up on maintaining his 20-ish-year-old Cannondale hybrid, just as it's "coming of age".

So the divergent prices are starting to converge. The $325 Tempo is down to $290, and the $100 one is UP to $200. (Links above still apply.)

I think they mean the taps themselves when they say "Dental Knife". They have teeth ("dental"), and they cut ("knife"). It seems they were listing common uses for the bottom bracket tap: 1)Damage from the bottom bracket itself, 2)Threads have burrs, 3) Threads aren't deep enough, 4)Threads are mis-aligned, 5)Threads are full of paint residue.

The giveaway was them talking about the "dental knife" having titanium on the outside -- That's the gold color to the taps -- a thin layer of Titanium Nitride, a very hard ceramic coating that improves wear and cutter life.
