Picked up this bike last Sunday.
It was advertised as a TREK but as you know it is not

Bought some Paint stripper so I have some things to do the coming few weeks

yes, I used it Monday and I was surprised by the way it rides.
I have never liked full suspension, I am more of a rigid kinda guy but this is not that bad.

Actually Yellow is a MC color but not on this 1st gen.
I took the Trek decals off and it already looks way better

I wonder if the "Trek" decals were intended as a sort of camouflage to ward off potential thieves. Nice find.
