    2009 Trek 6700 D

    Well after a long summer of working at my local bike shop, I bought a 09 Trek 6700D. I wanted to get an 09 GF Tassajara until I saw the new color, light blue and the 6700 has better components anyways. The bike shop I worked at is a Trek/Gary Fisher concept store, so we get all the new stuff before everyone else.

    If you did not know, here are some of the components:
    Avid Juicy 3 160mm
    X-9 rear derailler
    X-7 trigger shifters

    I took it out for a ride today to break it in and it is a great bike but the seat needs to be changed asap. Here are some pictures I took before riding, just in case you have not seen the 2009 6700D

    Niiice!!! MBA mag Sept 2008 issue test report lists the price as $1150. Is this right? 2008 model list for the 6700 was $1320.

    Sweet ride! My wife gave me permission last night to replace my 2006 Trek 6500 whenever I want. I've been debating over that 6700 or some kind of Gary Fisher.

    Are you having any issues with the Juicy 3's? I've got a 2008 Trek Fuel EX8 with Juicy 5 brakes and they have been nothing but problem since day one.

    not really any problems. They rear has been making some weird sounds, but I never use the rear, so it might take some time to break them in. The shifting is really nice, all around great bike. I was going to get a Fisher since that is what I have always had but most the 09's come out in late October/November. So this is my first Trek and love it.

    I have to agree with steveo, I got my 6700 two weeks ago, with three rides on the bike and I dream about riding it every night. This is a kick ass bike.

    Hello boys,

    I'm french speaking but I will try to make as few mistakes as possible.

    I want to buy a Trek 6700 (2009 version). Your bike is it in its original condition? The configuration in Belgium stores looks different from yours. For example, front and rear derailleurs are Shimano SLX and not SRAM. Similarly, the brakes are from SLX Shimano range and not Avid.

    All belgian specifications : http://www.trekbikes.com/be/fr/bikes..._series/6700e/

    Kinds regards.

    Seb

    Yes, it is in original condition. There are a few differences between the USA version and the Belgium version.

    The shocks are slightly different.
    I have SRAM X-7 shifters, SRAM X-9 rear derailer, and Shimano Deore front derailer.
    Different chain and different cassette.
    My 6700 came with Avid Juicy 3 both 160mm rotors and yours has Shimano SLX 160mm,180mm which is also a hydraulic brake system like the Juicy.

    I did not realize there were so many differences, what is the price where you are at?

    Steve you seem to be pretty hooked with Trek. Any info when the 2009 Trek Top Fuel will start shipping to dealers? I'm interested in purchasing the 09 Top Fuel ex8 which is similar in color scheme to yours. Thanks. Paul T.

    Yea I love Trek and Gary Fisher. I am at college, so I do not have access to the exact shipping dates but I think I remember those will be out around October-November. Fuel EX you can order now but Fuel later. Late October-November is when GF will start sending out full suspension and 29ers.

    I'm confused by your question. The "Top Fuel" bikes and the "EX" bikes are different. The 2009 Top Fuel 8 should be available to dealers in mid to late December.

    Whats the weight on the 6700?

    I'm struggling to decide weather to go with a hardtail (6700 or 8000) around $1300-1800 or go full suspesion. Full sussers at that price range are the gary fisher hifi base model, specialized fsr xc expert, and giant anthem.

    I ride mostly singletracks, alot of roots, uphills and more singletracks.

    Any recommendations?

    about 27 lbs and hifi is a nice bike I would have got one but the new 2009 have a different frame and IMO that frame is weird.

    Full suspension is good if you will be biking over big rocks, big roots, and drops. And on full suspension it is hard to go fast like on pavement or packed dirt because the rear suspension absorbs all your power even if you lock it out.

    It is typically a forum faux-pas to respond to a thread which died so long ago. You wouldn't start up a conversation with a friend you were having 10 months ago would you?

    Anyway, welcome to the forum, and yes, you'd love the 6700!!

    not at all entry level, entry level is around $500. This bike was $1300 but yea you would like it and it would give you room to grow your skills on.

    Oh and just like ScaryJerry said, try and not post on old threads.

    Trek vs GF

    Steveo,
    I was originally looking at the GF Tass 09 but the paint scheme isn't to my liking either. I thought about the Trek 6500 but the Trek 6700 dazzles with it's paint job. It is similar in color to the bike I am replacing (1999 GF Big Sur). Question - how do you compare the Trek and GF on fit? I love the GF Genesis geometry on my 1999 but haven't tried the 2.0 version enough to feel good about it. I do have a 2006 Stumpjumper and the difference between my GF hardtail and Stumpy is almost like black and white (at least in fit). Any thoughts? Thanks, Paul
