    My First New (to me) Mountain Bike

    Hey all, just wanted to post a pic of my new Craigslist mountain bike. I've been riding road bikes for about 2 years now and wanted to pick up a mountain bike to try out some of the trails around here as well as riding on the bike path w/ a baby trailer, etc. Hopefully it will dry out around here next week so I can get out and try it out a little more than I have.

    Here's a link to a larger picture than the thumbnail below.

    might want to tip that seat back a bit if you want your 1st off road steps to be enjoyable ones

    the 8900's were the first bike i really had a massive ***** over, those rolf wheels looked sweet, and they had hydro's!!!

    i would still love to find a 8900 frame in good condition and build it up.

    Thanks to all for the compliments and I'll definitely take a look at lowering that seat angle.

    trek has the 8900 for 2007 too. frame only option. look to be the similar decals as that picture too. black on red with even dark grey decals of parts of the drivetrain- chain rings, chain, fr derailleur- marked out on the drive side of the frame. i saw one built up and of course you cannot see the chain ring decals then. sorta weird but all in all it looked pretty nice. lemme find a picture
