I don't know the MSRP but I'd guess around $1200 (I'm sure I'll get corrected if I'm wrong). Two notches up from the Trek 1000 on the component food chain, the 2200 is mostly Shimano 105. You save a little weight and get smoother shifting. You'll also save some weight with the wheels and hubs, upgraded significantly from the 1000.

If the Trek geometry fits, go for it!

Check the geometry charts at www.trekbikes.com. My catalogue shows a difference between the 1000 and other trek alumimum models. Make sure you try before you buy. Difference appears to be a shorter TT in the 1000.

With very careful shopping, I have purchased two new Trek 2300 bikes. Both were 1999 models bought early 2000. Got one for $1100 and the other for $1400. With the ultegra components, I thought these were excellent buys. I just had to shop for about 6 months to find the deals.

Last time I looked, the 2200 had a normal retail of $1,299 and the 2300 was $1,599.

The 2300 has Ultegra components and uses a higher grade of tubing. If you are going to upgrade I would go with the 2300.

Now is a good time to look, you may be able to get a closeout 2300 for about $1,200.
