Trek Mountain Track 800

Just was able to get a used one of these at a great price. It was dirty, the chain was rusty (surface), and it needs a new seat, but otherwise appears in good condition. The rear der is Shimano SIS (six speed). BTW I love the trigger shifters compared to the "twisters" on my new Trek Nav 200. Anyone have the Mtn Track 800? Any thoughts/comments.

Me too! I just bought a new Marin Larkspur this week for commuting and general riding (lovely bike!), but wanted a "newer older" utility bike to replace my in-need-of-major-overhaul 30-year old Motobecane for groceries and nearby errands and anytime I don't want to worry about locking the new bike up in a questionable place.

I went out to a block sale in my neighborhood yesterday morning and happened on a Trek 800 Mountain Track. The price? $12.

No rust at all, just in need of a new seat and some new grips; I brought it home, pumped up the tires, wrapped over the old grips with some foam handlebar tape I had, put on an extra seat I had laying around, and took it for a spin. It works flawlessly, is rock-solid, and appears to need nothing more than a clean-and-lube.

I don't know much about the bike--trying to find out when it was made--but it seems perfect for what I need and I'm delighted with it. The best $12 I've spent recently, for sure.
