Beautiful bike man, love me a Trek, I still have a few nice ones. In fact the nicest Mountain bikes I have ever owned have been Treks,... and I've had a bunch of them.

8) very nice

Looks in good condition and the components you have added have made a positive difference :)

Curious to know what size/dimensions the frame is as i have a 2001 Trek, 17.5 which has a sloping top tube, low and long, and is a very smooth ride also :)

Bloody lovely! 8) 8)


Been looking for something like that myself. Found an 8900, but too small, alas

Did they have issues with bonding at all?

nice one - old Treks are totally underrated.


I'll second that! My first mtb was a Trek Singletrack, with Indy C forks. Great bike to ride.

Goddam! I'm going to look for one now! :lol: :lol:

Looks ace, really like the bare carbon/aluminium lug look. Didn't realise they came like that, thought the alloy bits were always painted. Have to agree with the positive Trek comments, I've had a fair few, and they've all been fantastic. Have two skinny tyred Treks at the moment, and both are brilliant.

Regards

Great bike and inspiration to get on with mine :lol:
Mine is the model below with painted joints but the paint is terrible and plenty of corrosion so I'm going to strip and polish it .
Be interested to know how they ride ?
