Wasn't there a thread about this bike here- I seem to remember pix in front of a couch.

I guess there's other really nice green Trek TX900s out there in prime shape... but this kind of stands out in my memory.

Beautiful bike. Would be very happy to add it to the bike room. I'd have to change the tubing decal though. Wrong tubing decal. Just not right.

That was my first thought too! Geez, get the right sticker! Second thought was what happened to the other pedal... Broken?

Cool bike though. Thanks OP for posting. Blast from the past.
