    98/99 Trek Pro Issue DH

    Just managed to finally after all these years get hold of one of these beasts!


    Apparently only 100 ever made.

    Does anyone have any information on these frames at all ?

    Sizes ?
    Geometry ?
    Weight ?
    Travel ?
    and any other information you would like to share or know of.

    I've contacted Trek just waiting on a reply hopefully.

    The shop I work at has one of these, not frameset but a complete. I'm almost positive there were more than 100 made. I remember seeing tons of them at races in the Mid-Atlantic, New England area back in the late 90's. It was one of the 1st full production dh bikes you could buy, I know GT had their LTS DH around the same time.SHARPLES!

    I'll be building it up as close to the original Scott Sharples world cup dh bike as i can, so the budget could get high but its an ongoing project.

    $10000 is what I heard too for the white and blue one same as what this review mentions

    I have see the pic of the yellow Trek you linked me to but i have never seen one in a mag from then till now or in the flesh and i have never seen a pair of the boxxers floating around either.
