Strengths:    ZR9000 Frame
Carbon forks and seat stays
105 group


Weaknesses:    Bontrager Race Wheels
Bontrager Crank (truvative gxp actually)


Bottom Line:   
Stock the bike came with 105 group except the Bonty standard double crank. I bought it used for a very good price. It was in excellent condition. I've spent $400 upgrading it and find it a great riding bike, though I have limited experience. I feel like I lucked into a real sweet bike.

If you have a chance to pick up a Trek 2100 used for under $700 I'd say go for it. You won't be sorry.

Strengths:    good all around ride as far as I can tell

Weaknesses:    dunno of any

Bottom Line:   
Nice smoothe ride.
I am a reacreational rider and do not know too much about bikes or components. I knew what I was willing to spend, and went to a bike shop, test rode 5 or 6 models. The 2100 felt the best, so I bought it, and have been happy with it.
Although I don't know much about bikes, I am athletic, former college b-ball player, and push it pretty hard. The 2100 responds to my demands- I won a small, local sprint triathlon with it, setting a course record (albeit the field was not too fast, I'm sure a dedicated triathlete would kick my butt).

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I first owned a Cannondale Cadd3 frame with Sora Group and a Tiagra rear Derailluer as my first true road bike. I had my eye on a Trek 2100 for a while. I called around for this paticular Bike in 63CM. The Trek Store owner told me he had one and that becuase of its large size no one wanted to buy it so he sold it to me for $1200.00. It retailed for $1699.00 brand new so I new it was a bargain. The ZR9000 alluminum frame is exceptionally light. The carbon forks and the carbon mainstays pick up a lot of vibration from the road and give a nice smooth ride. With the extra money I saved I replaced everything with Ultegra group 6500 lock stock and barrel. I got rid of the triple crankset what an eye sore. I replaced the seat with a Specialized Avatar Gel racing seat feels much better. The Bike rides beautifully. The gearing changes with precise accuracy and precision. There is no chain rub or any creaking coming from the bottom bracket. The Ultegra crankset is as stiff as I have ever felt on a crank. Im 6'3" and way 240lbs and I can put some hurtin on cranksets and so far the Ultegra crankset is worth its weight in gold. Im very happy with this Bike. I would recommend this bike to a friend. Ebay is the place to order 9speed parts and for a good price. If your looking for an entry level racing bike look no further. If you can purchase this bike used and in really good shape under $800.00 I would not pass it up. Ride like the wind and have fun!

Strengths:    Component group, comfort, speed and agility-bike tracks very well!

Weaknesses:    Wheels

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike to upgrade from my trek 1000. My requirements were an aluminum/carbon combo, and a compact 10 speed drivetrain. I wanted a trek 2.1, but my dealer could'nt get one, but he had this leftover 2100 which was essentially the same bike, for alot less money.
The bike has been a dream. I could'nt be more pleased. The only fly in the ointment was that the rear bontrager select wheel has developed some cracks in it, and my shop is working on getting me a new wheel from trek.
Other than that, alot of bike for not alot of cash!

105 Brakes


Weaknesses:    Saddle
Wheels (spokes)


Bottom Line:   
This is the price performance leader. Mine came with 105 brakes with Ultegra levers and Ultegra derailleurs. The 105 brakes are Brembo beasts and pull the bike down quickly without complaint. I swapped out the Bontrager triple with a compact and love it. Off came the saddle, and on went a Douglas Carbon from Colo. Cyclist which is very comfy.

I'll add Bontrager's carbon Race X Lite Blade bars for better feel and comfort. I'd also change to tougher DT Swiss wheels with Ultegra hubs but definitely keep the Bontrager Race X Lite hardcase tires. Otherwise, this has been a wonderful ride.

Early 90's Trek 2100 Composite (carbon fiber) or 99' Cannondale R300 triple road bike

This will be my first road bike purchase and need some assistance. Both bike are around the same price 350-400. I've heard that the R300 is really stiff, will the carbon fiber make a big difference in weight and ride quality? I was leaning towards the Cannondale because it's newer and IMO it looks c ...
