Trek 7000 or Trek 930? (1995)

I picked up a 1995 Trek 7000 a few days ago and have been going through it. It has frustrated me some, as I have had difficulty getting everything adjusted well. I now see that I may need to put more money into it than I expected.

I bought it for $200 and could probably sell it for $250.

I see now that there is a Trek 930 for sale, same year, in much better condition. I'm wondering whether I should get it and sell the 7000.

Any opinions?

It's always a bit of a lottery when buying any used bike, old or new-ish. Just because it looks good doesn't mean it won't require futher $ expenditure. In fact it's a given there will be futher cost involved more so if the bike is older than newer. A good intial inspection and asking the seller alot of questions about the condition can only get you so far...a test ride will get you a little bit futher. But at the end of the day, it's when you get it home and on to the work stand, only then can you really satisfy yourself that you haven't bought a donkey instead of a race horse

But the saying goes, "Conditon is everything". So why not part with the 7000 and get the 930. But remember this latin phrase, caveat emptor, "let the buyer beware."
