I was wondering when we were going to see more pics of our BOTM.

Very nice.

Good stuff!
That Trek is pure retro, love it.

You need to get your 'Dirt Disciple' changed to 'B.O.T.M Winner'! :wink:

Be patient, Mike. Got a new digicam but the pics are even blurry. I think the fluo paint is killing the camera :lol:

Hate that photo stuff. And btw I am a very bad photographer ... :oops:

My word of thumb, is never expect a good picture to come out that's taken inside. If you can get it so your camera takes it without the flash, then you're likely good to go. This is high school photo class talking here...

On another note. You must be the only person in the world to give a Trek 9000 some TLC. You did a very nice job with it. Wasn't it voted by MBA the worst suspension bike of all time? How does it ride?

Yep, you are right with the "worst susp bike of all time" :lol:

I changed the rear bump "stack of rubber donuts" from the 92 model to a 93 model which has some kind of oil damped dump truck cartridge in it. I am not really shure but it works. It feels good and eliminates the pogo a bit. The Showa forks is doing a great job as well!

In general I like the overall look of the bike and it is quite rare ...
