This is my old Trek 2200 aluminum lugged carbon tubed campy equipped favorite road bike. The old 8 speed derailleur is impossible to find parts for, and the drop looks to be part of the aluminum forging of the rear frame. I feel like I'm putting down my favorite dog. I am finding at my age, there are things in my life that are hard to say good bye to. And not just people. Any sage wisdom out there?
I would repair it. That is a great frame and happens to be the same one that Iowa Rep Steve King rides!
Very cool.
