I was 15 in 1991 and my first bicycle with gears had a pair of SunTour X-Press. I can understand riders with more experience wouldn't appreciate how easy it was just punching on levers to shift, but it was of great help to me.

BTW, mine did also break, but that depended mainly on if you had the inferior SL-XM10 model with the whole downshifting lever made of plastica and riveted to the indexing mechanism, or the superior, more robust SL-XP10 with a hardened steel lever with a plastic cover. The latter would just scoff at any impact.

90's steel Trek mountain bikes are underrated gems. I currently have two and am always on the lookout for more.

The True Temper steel used in the Trek frames was very high end and the bikes were light and were very capable and high performance bikes

Me too!

I picked one of these up last year for the USA made butted steel frame. Thinking to put drop bars on it eventually. Mine has the suspension fork but Iíll probably swap it for a rigid fork. Cool to see the period review. Thanks.
