Rigid 26er

Hello,

I have rigid trek singletrack 920 (1994). What are some things I can upgrade on it? I bought WTB Trail Boss' for it thus far.

Thanks.

Decent grips and pedals. Unless this is your preferred style of bike and more money would be better spent on another bike.

To echo what was already said, unless a mid-90s era mtb experience is what you are specifically shooting for, I would not throw a lot of $ at this.

If you are commited to this frame/fork, I would consider the following:

Update the bar/stem setup. If this bike is sporting the typical mid-90s 120mm stem and 580mm wide bar, try a shorter stem and wider bar. IMO that is one of the best things to change in MTB bikes since 1994.

Otherwise, other than contact points (pedals, saddle, grips - all things that can be moved to another bike later on) and good cables, housing, and pads, I would not bother doing much to it.

Thanks. I pretty much decided the same. However, that one bit on the steering system is a good note. The only thing I need to get ASAP are new grips. Damn things are shot.

Cheers.
