    Trek Mt. Bike?? Good bike to buy?

    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.


    thanks,

    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.
    I only pedal uphill.

    Ahhh, the old Trek Something-Or-Other.

    Don't buy it, I never liked Trek.

    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.

    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.
