I can't believe I've only just found this forum! Going to plunder this for info for my upcoming LEJOG.

I've only ever ridden entry-level MTBs before and never had a road bike. For better or worse I've just bought a second hand Trek 1.2 (good buy? good for LEJOG) which I pick up on Thurs.

I haven't seen it in the flesh yet. Just wondering what I should check for before handing over my hard earned cash? :? Ie the classic tell-tale white stuff under the oil cap if you were buying a car!

Haven't really got a clue where to start. Many thanks.
