Does anyone know anything about this bike? I'm thinking of buying one used but don't know anything about it. I don't think Trek makes them anymore. The bike has Campy Veloce, Mavic Reflex wheels, Speedplay X-2's, and a Trek ICON carbon fork. I thing it's a 1998. Thanks a lot.

I believe it might be a little older, maybe a 96/97. As far as I know the 2120's were only produced as a carbon frame with aluminum lugs. Fairly sweet lookin frames and they handled nicely. Veloce is a dependable group, nothing overly fancy or ultra light but dependable. If it fits and the price is right it's probably worth getting. Just double check the price and triple check the fit.

My first road bike was a 2120. It was a nice bike for the price, which I think was around $1000 new. I put a lot of miles on it, and still remember the subtle twang sound it made over bumps, due to the carbon/Aluminum mix.

I would say it would be a perfect bike for someone getting into road riding, or for someone who isn't a hard core rider. Pretty good century bike, too. If you are a hard core rider (MTB) but new to road riding, I think eventually you'll graduate from this bike to a higher end bike if you enjoy road riding. That was my progression. It took me about 18 months before I decided to upgrade to a Litespeed. My old bike has been handed down twice since.
