    I owned one back in 1995. (It came stock with DA components). Mine was a 58cm, I'm 5'11" with a 33½" inseam for what it's worth...

    It may have been a near top of the line bike 14 years ago if everythng is original. Stuff has changed alot in 14 years. buy it for what it's worth to you if it fits. That pants inseam or bicycle inseam??Makes a difference.I'm 6' with a 35+" bicycle inseam.

    Mine was 100% DURA ACE 8 speed, inlcuding a DURA ACE Stem with hidden handlebar clamp bolt.
    Very nice bicycle, but will not compare to today's TREK OCLV in ride, weight, or ability to handle wider/taller tires.

    Make sure it fits you!
    It sounds like it would be small for you.
    34" inseam usually means that your pubic bone is about 36".... but you need to know.

    Whoa!


    600 parts and DURA ACE hubs,,,... is it 7 or 8 speed?
    If it is 7 speed, it would likely have the very unique DURA ACE hub that is UG and has a unique freehub body.
    What is the Over Locknut Dimension of th rear drop-outs with no wheel mounted?
    Could you get a serial number and check with TREK to see more of this bicycle's history?

    The older bike is a better bike. ..especially if it is in excellent condition. Although stuff has changed alot...the older high end stuff is still much better than the low end stuff out there today.
