I'm a little worried because the frame seems too small for me (almost 6'2") but I hate to get rid of it. Love the old Trek steelies. Here's the skinny:

-Old Rockshox fork is stuck
-Frame is straight and crack-free
-No wheel set
-Brand new Nexave crankset

So, any suggestions?

If you get a Singleator, you can run pretty much whatever wheelset you want. Start looking at Craigslist and ebay and I'll betcha you can find whatcha want for not a lot. If yer looking for new parts, start with Nashbar. Then look at Pricepoint and some of the other low-cost spots.

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
