The old Treks were really cool. A great brand I think. Well made and nice to ride.
Im talking early 1990 era ones. We NEVER see them on here. Again - maybe a thing for 2009, to see some of these get restored again.
I'd love to get an early hardtail carbon one - with the fluo paintjobs and splatter lugs etc.
I have a 1993 9800 in Ice Green, still with some of the original parts on it
I'll get it cleaned and stick it up.
I did have a bare carbon pro issue with the yellow transfers, but cracked the bottom bracket shell, so it was replaced under warranty with a 97 9900 Pro Issue in the blue and white VW colours. Its still one of the best XC frames available, despite the lack of disc mount at the rear.
I was considering replacing with something new and shiney, but looking around, I cant find a frame that is lighter for a decent price, so I'll just retain the frame and upgrade all the parts.
