now be nice - this is an Easton very nicely put together frame, no glue. Just a couple of bolts for the rear cable stop/ bridge
Easton tubes, yes. Still bonded. Frame is constructed of aluminum investment cast lugs that internally sleave to the Easton tubes, and are glued in place. The lugged carbon tubed frames (pre-OCLV stuff) like the 8500 from the same era use the same frame construction process only with the carbon tubes instead of Easton aluminum tubes. Trek used the process for many many mountain and road bikes back in the late 80's and early 90's. I used to have a Trek 1500 road bike, made the same way. Pretty to look at, but not so nice to ride.
So yeah, you have lots of glue there.
Don't get me wrong, it's a neat old frame, but there are shortcomings that come with that old girl.
