  1. Hi.

    I thinking of buying a used '01 Trek OCLV 9.9 Pro. The seller says he's been using the bike for
    offroad winter training and have driven app. 6000 km (3750 miles) on it! According to him the frame
    is in good condition with only the scratches and marks offroad-racing always gives.

    My question is: Does a OCLV-frame last as long as a, say, Alu-frame or does it deteriorate (much)
    with time and (ab)use? Should I have any second thoughts about buying this bike (i.e. frame) or is
    it a safe buy?

    PS: What would be a fair price for a stock '01 bike considering the use? (components more or less
    identical to the new Elite 9.8: <http://www.trekbikes.com/bikes/2003/mountain/elite98.jsp>)
