Trek 4300 w/disc brakes. I havn't had a bike in 10 years. This one rocks.

Go ride it, you got a lot of catching up to do.

Very nice

That's a nice bike. It's not quite as cool as mine though.

2004 Del Sol Shoreliner.

Sorry, no pic of the mountain bike.

I broke down and bought a Fuel 80 last year, great bike, I should have gotten one size larger though. I'm on a 17.5, should have gotten a 19.5".

I bought it on sale at the begining of this year for about $229 I believe. The normal price was about $270. This was cool, right after I bought it I stupidly let some teenager ride it around the block and somehow the jackass popped the chain off, it kind of jacked the chainguard and rear fender. I talked to someone from Del Sol, actually they're made by Haro, to get a price and they sent me new ones for free.

It really is a nice cruiser, my brother has a cheap Huffy cruiser and it doesn't ride anywhere near as nice, his squeakes and stuff too.

That's a good trade, the Y-22 design is outdated.

A good 1911 never gets outdated.

If it's got disc brakes then it's not a 'bike'.


It's a damn leg-powered motorcycle.

Does anyone have any links to some good bike sites? Specifically one that lists trails and stuff like that.

I just rode it across town and I'm liking it..a lot. I'm a little sore but not like when I was jogging earlier this year.

Heres a couple forums. A lot of good info but NOT gun friendly!

Heres my Tassajara,new in June. I'v since upgraded the front to an Avvid mech disc,changed tires and swapped out the prison gang rape simulation of a seat for a WTB. Just like ARs,you can buy all kinds of way cool and way expensive **** for em.

Nice bikes. I ride a Cannondale F1000.

Nice bikes in this thread. I have been riding my bike to work when possible due to the outrageous gas prices. It is a nice 12-13 mile trip. Up hill most of the way home though which blows. Nothing like working in a tire shop for 8.5hrs. and then riding your bike 13 miles up hill.

So for you roadies, how are those minimalist seats? They look cool, but uncomfortable. How do they compare on long rides? Certain butt shapes only? Padded shorts only? I have a Sella Italia, but it has real padding. Took me so long to find a seat that feels good that I am scared to try anything else. obviously lighter, but ?? Trade offs?

Nice bikes guys. A good bike will change your life. And, kind of like the BRD, they will start to multiply. I've had about 10 decent bikes come and go and the trek's have always been solid performers. Right now I've got three of them (6700, Y-22, 9.9) and an old GT w/o suspension. The trail dictates which bike I'll ride that day, the 6700 is a good XC (cross country) and technical bike much like your 4300. I like the feather-light 9.9 for hillclimbs and the full-suspension Y-22 for downhills. Ironically, the plain "oldschool" GT is my favorite for occassional commuting when distance and weather permit. How do you like the disc brake setup?

Editted b/c I can't spell.

I just got a novara big buzz at REI... pretty cool so far. haven't had time to get out on it too much yet.

RE: So for you roadies, how are those minimalist seats?
Super light, ergonomic and efficient

RE: They look cool, but uncomfortable.
Well proper seat height and angle is critical in order to achieve optimal comfort, aerodynamic position, and power efficiency.

RE: How do they compare on long rides?
This depends on how fast the long ride is. The more force being applied by the rider to the cranks the more comfy minimalist seats are. If you’re just a recreational rider minimalist seats are probably not for you.

RE: Padded shorts only?
true

RE: I have a Sella Italia, but it has real padding.
Yeah I have a selle Italia flight and san marco and have tried several other brands. I personally prefer the models with carbon suspension systems (as opposed to massive padding) and center hole pressure relief. This combination produces the best combination of optimal comfort and power efficiency.

RE: obviously lighter, but ?? Trade offs?
Personally I think that the saddle is a bad place to shave grams of weight from your bike. I would sacrifice weight for ergonomics any day. I choose my saddles based on maximum power output and comfort achieved in the most aerodynamic position.

Thats a nice bike. I have been look'in at alot of bikes, I need one too. There are so many bikes MB to choose from I'm going fookin nutz looking at them all.
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 7:20:07 AM EDT
I'm looking at getting a bike too. My son's been wanting me to go riding with him, but I have a cruiser and I want a mountain bike instead.

I need something really heavy duty though. Super strong suspension, hubs, and crank set.

Time to start looking.

Is that the 4300 or the 6700??

On Treks website the 6700 was the color of your bike. The 4300 was blue and black.



Disregard, I was not on Treks website, it was some bike store website, they must have the colors screwed up.

Worse if you'v ever caught the end of a kickstand on a log,stump,root vine ect. Its REALLY funny to see happen though.

I thought about it. I know it wasn't cool to have that stuff on there when I was younger...but I ride a lot at night (I work 2nd shift) so the reflectors might stay on. Kickstand I havn't decided yet, it'll probably come off some time.
