    Ok, up until now I have been saving money to (i will have $1200 in December) get a new bike to replace my used rigid 90's Specialized Hardrock sport.
    I just found a 99' Trek 8900 (http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/Bike_har...ct_19640.shtml) on a police auction site, here are the details...

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Frame Size: 18"
    Frame Material: carbon fiber
    Number of Speeds: 21
    Gears: suntour
    Corrosion severity/location: none visible
    Additional Features: 2 water bottle holders, front shocks ,3 piece cranks , bar ends,
    Description of Physical Condition: frame,forks and handle bars have nicks and scratches, both derailleurs do not shift, seat torn, wheels are slightly bent
    Condition: Fair
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Do ya guys think I should try for it, I was thinking of maby putting like 5 or 6 hundred for my bid, and if I win a few more to fix it.
    I know that you take a risk buying CF used, but its it is a nice XC bike and nice light XC bikes don't come cheep. Thanks, X-ZEN
