    Don't know if I fit your criteria, but 1000$ (never did a full tally on everything), not really stock trek 4300.

    I just checked from memory, my bike costed me about 789$(without accounting for shipping+tax) not including the pedals, bb, and crankset, which I already had.

    stock except accessories and I'm on the 2nd cassette/chain and the 3rd set of tires.. Found it on a huge sale $350. this is how I got hooked on biking. I was going to upgrade to a new $1000+ bike this year, but can't find one that I really like, I think I'm too used to this one.

    I currently do not have one. However, I am in the market for a bike. I have been looking at $2,000 bikes, but I realized I am having just as much fun on my dad's budget hardtail. (hence the inspirational thread I decided to make). His ride is a 2005 Trek 4500. It may not have the best components, but I like it. My previous bike was a Specialized Epic, but it didn't have enough travel for me and didn't suit me well. I don't like the laid over xc style of riding.

    Do used ones count?

    I just bought it, but don't have it yet(my guess it is on a truck somewhere near St. Louis at the moment).

    Ride a bike. It makes your legs stringy, and less tasty to our Kanamit friends.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    I haven't even brought it home yet. Will do that this Friday. I'll be adding a Thudbuster and Eggbeaters and possibly Fire XC tires, all from my rigid Trek 970.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Mhh DX's How you liking them, mine have pleased me quite well so far. The only thing I reccomend is pulling out the spindle and loc-titing the threads or else they will probably start creaking after a while

    Haha, I don't really have much use for it now that I have the Trek. I was a little rough on it, so whatever isn't broken, I'm keeping as spare parts or possibly selling in the future. It was a very nice bike though. *tear*

    I like the color, looks fast!

    Your seat is looking a little droopy though.

    That TASS looks really nice. I want to pick up the 2006 TASS Disc because it has an air fork and I don't think the 2007 has one?
