I've dug my worthless piece of crap Trek 8000 out of the depths of the garage £12 on ebay
(if this bonded Ali frame was built by Klein it would be worth a small fortune)

Nick,
am glad for you but I think it will not make you much rich :lol: ...but they are very nice frame.

Anyway mine has all the bits fitted that yours lacks,
1. Cable stop for a Top Pull front Mech
2. Cable stop for Rear Canti brake

has someone removed yours ?

No one has removed these bits, there were different models of TREK 8000, and mine lacks these important bits.
Maybe they wanted to save weight :lol: ...so mine is definitely much lighter than yours :wink:

I had the same problem with the front mech on my 7000 and found the problem solver in the pic below. Cant remember where I got it from but I think CRC may do them.

solving the problems can sometimes be very simple :D

Fortunately this TREK has many holes :lol:

(I think the fork down should also be red and will not turn green (it's too much :? ))
