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>) TIA! -- Regards, Jesper Replace invalid with dk if replying by email!
