    1992 Trek 9500 Full Suspension frame Risse Shock

    So, I have gotten the build bug. I am in the middle of three builds at the moment, a Surly Cross Check frame build, A Trek road build and an older Norco mountain bike.

    I saw this frame. a 1992 Trek 9500 Full Suspension frame Risse Shock, and was wondering if it is a good frame. Also, what should I expect to pay for it. The paint is in great condition with a couple of small scratches. I am getting a full older XT group that will be good on this frame, I think.

    Thanks for the info,
    Ian

    Wow. Even though the original elastomer 'shock' has been replaced with a Risse, it is most definitely an outdated dinosaur.

    Get it because it is a one-of-a-kind and you want to stand out from the crowd; but don't get it if you are expecting full suspension performance. It is a collector's item for sure.
