    I need info on the specs and changes in the subject model years. Drive train, components, frame
    geometry, frame composition, wheels, etc. I am particularly interested in the differences in the
    model years. Trek was unable (or unwilling) to provide this info for 1999-2002 years. I appreciate
    all input. Thanks a bunch.

    Ask your LBS if they have Bike-a-Log. This would make your task quite easy.

    I bought a 1998 TREK 2300 in year 2000. I considered buying a 2000 model when I got my 1998. Let's see, the TREK 2300 has always been a 100% ultegra bicycle with an ICON carbon fork in 1998, and TREK carbon fork in later years. In 1999-2002, it was alpha aluminum, in 2003, it became 100% ZR9000 Aluminum, substantially lighter.

    In 1999, I believe it had the same generic wheels as my 2300, e.g. Shimano Ultegra hubs with Mavic CXP22 rims. Starting in 2000, it had bontrager low-spoke exotic wheels. Stem is ICON. Headset on mine was a Tange. Otherwise, the Ultegra gruppo was complete. Seat was TREK / Selle San Marco or Bontrager (Trek house brand atop probably selle san marco). Handlebars are ICON. That covers about 90% of the components. The bike didn't change much from 2000-2002. The alpha aluminum frameset, with its triangular downtube, sure was ugly, though.
