Just thought I'd join up...lovely to see all these beautiful older machines.
Still enjoying this one...
Used as a commuter/ fitness bike these days.
This is a '93 Trekker Hydrotech Competition model that I've had since new and still ride and enjoy almost daily.
Just gave it a thorough wash and brush-up and thought. "Blimey, that looks alright after all these years"
I have never seen another example, either in the flesh or on the net.
Anyway, comments appreciated.

Dear lord, how long is that stem. I loved them the first time round and I'm even more drawn to it now!

I remember the ads for those bikes comparing themselves to BMW motorbikes (both with magura brakes and maz forks, and bizarre frames)

That's looking great mate..never a real fan of the e-stay myself, but always had a soft spot for Saracens...

How do you find the maguras work after all this time? Have you had to do anything to them?

Maguras have been absolutely trouble-free for 14 years. Still strong enough to flip me over.
Have only ever replaced the pads.

I actually wrote to them to say how reliable they'd been...but the b***ers never answered.

Anyway..thanks for the replies. Appreciated.

Looks really nice, very retro and very classy, if it was mine i'd ride it every day too :P
