I did my first sprint tri last fall on a mountain bike with slicks. Finally, I am looking to upgrade. I've test ridden a few bikes at the LBS. I liked the fit of the Giant OCR1w and the Trek 2.1 Pilot. Specialized Dolce Elite was a little cramped. I was getting ready to buy a new Giant OCR1w this weekend, but then found a 2002 Trek 2000 wsd on Ebay for $400. This is more than half the price of what I would have paid for a new Giant OCR ($1000) or Trek 2.1 ($1100).
Are there any major differences in the geometry in the Trek WSD from 2002 to 2008? With regards to components, they seem pretty equal. Because of distance, I won't be able to ride the ebay bike ahead of time. However, if the geometry is almost the same, I might just go for it.
One other thing about the Ebay bike. It has some scrapes on the right front shifter and the rear deraileur on the right. Should I be concerned about major problems with that type of damage? You can check out the pictures below:
