am looking at a used Teck bike. Here are some pictures.
It is a trek something or other hardtail with disc brakes.
They are asking $325. I'm going over this afternoon to inspect and test ride. Are there anything that I need to keep in mind when I inspect it.

Do it!!!! I've always loved Trek.

weird looking bars ... very worth 325 though ... what is it for dirt juming or something?
I'd make sure it's the right size, but for a bike like that it may not be a big point. looks nice.

Ahhh, the old Trek Something-Or-Other.
Don't buy it, I never liked Trek.

Junkyard everyone knows that the Something-Or-Other is a gary fisher model.. You may really be a poseur.

The Something-Or-Other is a GF, but the Something-Or-Other Hardtail With Disc Brakes is in fact a Trek.

Looks like a bruiser, well used from the look of it. I'd look it over very carefully.

The new Treks are actually pretty appealing :D, they finally waken up.
I went and looked at it and ended up being a 1 x 9 speed. They converted it to a 1 x 9. The chainring on the front was well used. The cassette was OK. But the wheels and rims looked really heavy. the tires were about 1/2 used. I really liked the disc brakes.
But, with the hills in UT, I really need the triple crank set. I think it would cost too much to buy a new crankset, bottom bracket?, derailurer and shifter. I think I could get a better bike for the $500 - $600 range.
Or, do you think it would be worth it to replace these. The forks were a bommer 2001. So, most of the bike is about 6 years old.

Here's an excellent value in that price range.
