Hi guys, having done a grand total of 65 miles from new in 1998, my £1,000 Trek 8000 SL has to go. It's had a service recently and is basically pristine.

The full spec is here:
http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/Bike ... model=8000

Including: aluminium frame, Rock Shox Judy T2, Deore LX V-brakes with Avid SD-1.9 L levers, LX shifters, Deore XT front and rear mech, Deore LX crankset, plus ICON bars, seat post, stem and 'Fatty' bar-ends that still look great.

Catalogue is here: (see page 9)

I also added a couple of upgrades when I bought it - including the XT front mech and LX SPDs.

So if you fancy a very light hardtail from back in the day - here you are! I also have the manuals.

Hope it can go to a good home. Btw, am in Surrey and obviously collection would be easiest but happy to agree something if you're miles away. Cheers.

Hello. The 16.5" is that to the top of the seat tube? And does it have 1"1/8 headset?
Thx Byron

Thanks Byron, yes, it's 16.5" as per the methodology here:

And yes, it does - a 1"1/8 threadless Aheadset Kontak SA-2
Full spec is here:

actually, scratch that! Sorry, just checked and in fact it's 16.5" directly along the seat tube - i.e. from the top, to the mid-point of the bottom bracket.

Hi there, I'm 5"7 and obviously it's spot-on for me, but anything from 5"4 to 5"10 would be fine. The saddle has plenty of space to go up or down and the top tube itself is pretty low.

Cheers

Hi

I'm 5'7" and live in Surrey. So far, so good... :wink:

How much does the bike weigh? I can't see it in the stuff you've linked to but I may just have missed it.. :roll:

Out of interest, I see you're selling to get another bike. What bike are you looking to replace it with and why?

Cheers

Hi there, good height! And good to know you're close by (am in Dorking btw).

You're right, the weight's not there. I tried to find a published weight so I could show off just how light it is - I was really obsessive about it when I bought the bike! - but no joy. But from memory, I'm 95% sure it was 23lbs (hence the £1k price-tag).

I'm looking at a hybrid, more suitable for the roads - hopefully a Whyte if I can afford it.

cheers
