    New to the forum, but not new to Trek...

    Finally was able to activate my account. Anyway, I've been riding Trek bikes since 1995, when I got my first '94 930. Rode it fairly frequently for that year, but then moved from Mercer Island, WA, which is fairly bike-friendly, to Duvall, WA, which isn't so friendly, at least on the roads. I'd also bought a bike that was a little on the large side for me. Purchased an 18" frame. Needed a 16.5" frame instead. So, until recently, the bike had been sitting in our garage, collecting dust. Last year, I picked up a '98 920 for $25. Flipped it for $50 about 8 months later. Sold my original '94 930 in June to Recycled Cycles in Seattle.

    Was bikeless until about 2 weeks ago, when another '94 930 popped up on Craigslist for $60. This one is a 16.5" frame model, so it actually fits correctly. Been upgrading it over the past week. Upgraded it from a rigid fork to a Rock Shox Judy TT that had been rebuilt, replaced the city tire and front rim with a Mavic 217 rim that has an offroad tire on it, added a Cateye Mity 3 computer to it, and had the fortune of coming across the saddle bag that I sold with my old 930. Have a Selle Italia Max Flite saddle on the way, to replace the Trek saddle that came off my sister's '95 830 (gave her the Serfas gel saddle that came with my current 930). Probably have about $125 into the bike currently, including purchase price.

    Anyway, there's my history with respect to Trek.

    I will. :-) It'll just be a little while - still analog, photography-wise. Probably will have'em up early next week.

    Well, decided to just use the crappy cameraphone pix I have. They'll suffice until I can drag out the Nikon F4s and take some pix with that. I've included a somewhat blurry pic of my sister's 830 as well.

    Welcome. I too am a long-time Trek rider. My first Trek was a 1989 model 1200 road bike that I bought used from one of our customers at the Trek dealership I worked at (worked there from 1991-1994).

    My next Trek was a 1992 model 2100 (composite main tubes) that I raced for a couple of seasons, then in 1995 I picked up the brand new Y-22 OCLV mountain bike (I wish I had never sold her!). I just sold my 2006 Fuel EX 6 and picked up a 2008 Top Fuel 8.

    Trek for life!

    Dan,

    Thanks. Nice on the Y22... There's got to be another out there, or maybe a Y33, if you wanted to go with the TOTL for 1995...
