12 year old, and so much can have changed from the original spec, as #cobba
Bikepedia is great, but for stock bikes. and it's a US centric site, specs may have been different in other countries.
We had a Trek 6000 in the shop recently, originally, it it was 8 speed, but the time we got it to service, it was 7, and that was a mid 1999 model.
For the 4900 in question, first, does it fit? if not, is it worth working on, then, does it matter what it was spec'd with? You can still get parts to fit, you need to work out if it is cost viable, if you have the parts great, but a new crank, rear wheel (probably cheaper than replacing just the rim) etc add up, the fork isn't one of Rock Shox's best, would be looking at how much you are going to need to put into it, before it becomes a money pit (seen far to many of those to recently)
