    06 Trek Session?

    Hola everyone,

    Just wanted opinions on the 06 Session 7 + 77. Opinions on frame alone, I don't give a crap about the components. I'm still looking for a frame for my winter build for a shuttle+ski resort dualy. If anyone has ridden/owns one I want to hear form you!

    That's about all, let me know what ya think.

    Matt

    Define what you mean here. A bike to get you around a ski resort?

    If so, I wouldn't use that, I'd use a rigid aluminum frame, with nokian tires.

    In my opinion ( and don't trash me for this please, I hate forum arguments ) is that is a silly idea to use a good frame like that in harsh winter conditions.

    I think he means a bike to build up in the winter time, not to ride.

    But yeah i've never riden one...but they look cool

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I mean ski resorts during the summer As in lift aided downhills... Like Northstar at Tahoe, Kirkwood, and Mammoth Mountain.

    Didn't you just ask the EXACT same question about the transition which is virtually the same bike but didn't respond to the responses?

    Its a solid bike. Frame is solid, geometry is almost identical to the transition so the ride would be similar. Biggest difference is in the bearings which are huge...massive actually. I have had a chance to play on one, and it is great for ski resorts, but better for more frish than dh. The geometry is a little tall for dh race quality bike.

    What resort and you going to be playing at? Keep in mind, some of the "resorts" in the states are more catered to dh than fr so a shorter build frame might work out better. The transition and trek are both tall and really work well for climbing (as far as 7 in dually's go)

    Northstar at Tahoe, Kirkwood, Mammoth Mountain. Northstar is pretty rocky, w/ a lot of good runs ranging from beginner to double black diamonds. Kirkwood and Mammoth are not as rocky.

    He's referring to the guy who doesn't know what a lift assisted dh run is.
