    I love the Trek Marlin color scheme. I need a trailer hitch bike rack like that...simple.
    Wonder what the good brands are and how much I'll need to spend?

Really love this bike.




    What Trek is that one? Is the frame from a 4300? I'm just wondering. Good job by the way. It looks awesome.

    Where do you go riding in Florida? I see you have a Florida license plate on your car. I'm in the Miami area.

    Thanks, I'll check the florida forum. I had gone to Oleta Park and Virginia key mountain bike trails. Love both of them. I get on the intermediate and some of the advance trails.
    I have been getting back into mountain biking since few weeks ago and ride every Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully,

    Cheers!

    They are BlackLabels. Got them from the LHS. I love them!!! The stockers sucked!!

    BlackLabel has them in different colors, clear, white, blue, red, black.

    I live in St. Augustine Fl, so I ride in Jacksonville Fl currently. Only started riding this year so working on endurance so I can travel and ride some of the other places in Fl.

    They might be made for BMX. I had 2 MTBer's recommend them. They are plastic, but grip great!!

    I was riding in the rain today and had not issues with my feet gripping. Nice price also.

    This is a Trek 820 rebuild I just finished last week. Below are the before and after photos.

    This is what I started with:

    <a href="http://s690.photobucket.com/albums/vv267/getagrip7/Trek%20820%20Rebuild/?action=view&amp;current=NewTrek.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i690.photobucket.com/albums/vv267/getagrip7/Trek%20820%20Rebuild/NewTrek.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    This is what I ended up with:

    <a href="http://s690.photobucket.com/albums/vv267/getagrip7/Trek%20820%20Rebuild/?action=view&amp;current=bikerebuild009.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i690.photobucket.com/albums/vv267/getagrip7/Trek%20820%20Rebuild/bikerebuild009.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    You can also see the thread I created on it here which tells the story of the rebuild:

    Just bought a Trek PDX to get me to and from work. I had the shop switch out the goofy stock bars for some flat bars, it was much better after that!

    Yeah that thing looks sweet. I just got a 7.3fx and love it but I think this one looks cooler. Plus the disc brakes are nice.

    Awesome amigo.

    I can finally post pics!

    The refit:





    Ended up swapping the tires and the seat post. The tires had like 4 seasons on them, and the Performance Forte seatpost started acting like a reclining chair.

    Sweet bike. Love the color. Wish my EX 9 had that color. But why a bike rack? If you needed a commuter i think you got the wrong _X. The FX series is a much better place to put a rack =P

    wow that seatpost support is massive. That's pretty cool, it could be useful for a small narrow bag to hold food, a phone, etc for races or epics.

    My new 2011 Remedy 9. Just picked it up today, went and put 10 miles on it. Not bad after being off a bike for 15 years. I do now see why people hate the Bontrager seat though, its not kind to the hind.

    Yeah, I sat on a $10 Serfas saddle yesterday and it felt like Temurpedic mattress. Maybe not the lightest, and won't win top marks with the cool kids but I'm at least going to be happy where it counts.

    I'm only about 6'3" it was a tad high in that picture I think I've lowered it a cm or so. The bottle is one I got for free at a race! The other side has the us mountain bike cup logo on it. I'm super pleased with the bike considering I got the fork and frame for less than 1k, 2010 top fuel 8 frame and a 2010 sid team, and was able to swap over my existing parts from my too-small hardtail.

    yea, white doesn't seem to be a popular choice, all I can figure is mud shows up easier on it.

    1995 Trek 830

    Trek 830 Mountain Track bike from Craigslist for $30; the criteria was a cross-country-style, small steel frame--this one is 14.5 inches--and this Trek fit the bill. Besides the frame, the only thing I used was the seatpost binder. The fork is a 1" modified Kona P2. After the front and rear brake bracket fabrication--all TIG welded--I had the frame sandblasted, then followed up with primer and BASF paint. Features SRAM and FSA drivetrain, Avid disc brakes and Mavic wheels.

Here is the current collection in the garage; The '11 Fuel EX 9.7 and the '05 6500 are for sale, by the way

    Here is my trek. I'm new to mountain biking so it doesn't look as cool as the other bikes here, but it gets the job done!

    Howdy. I just got a new bike and joined this forum. There's a ton of good info here. Thanks. This is my new Trek 4300. I mostly ride dirt and gravel roads and some light trail riding. So far, I am very pleased with the bike.

    Here's a picture of my new steed. I've had it for just under a week and I'm loving it. Still trying to get the suspension dialed in just right but the thing rides nice.

    I feel like I'm cheating a lot of the time. Coming from a hardtail where I had to watch my lines I know just plow up and over.

    Love seeing the RF pics. I've had mine for 5 months now and I've put it through some serious grinding. I am amazed every day how well it's holding up. Back in my old biking days, it seems my bikes would literally fall apart on me within a year. First to go would be the smooth gear shifting, then the hubs would get woobly, followed by wheel/rim issues, and eventually frame cracks, and the list goes on. I love the new FS bike technology and engineering. Built tough.

    Hey. This is my first post on these forums ! I just bought a Trek 4300 too (well, a smaller one ). Can't wait to get it and go try it. It's my first "real" mtb. I'll mainly use it on road, but I wanted to be able to ride on some trails with friends of mine.

    According to what I've read, it's a nice beginner's bike !

    I was about to buy a 2012, but the local Trek dealer was clearing out the 2011 Remedy 9.8 at a price I couldn't pass up. Already swapped the triple crank for my XTR 970 36-26+bash setup, and put some wider Easton Haven bars on.

    Holy crap, I just rode this trail last weekend (on my EX9). Awesome place to ride out there on the Plains of Abraham!

    Thanks even thought i wiped out climbing out of the saddle on my first ride haha.

    Took some time today....swapped out some parts....put on a X9 RD, X7 shifters, XT brakes, Easton Monkey lite 635mm, plus my trustworthy ESI chunky grips. Dropped a fair amount of weight.

    NICE! Good choice over the '12 if you got a great price. How do you like that 36/26 setup with all of that long climbing and descending it looks like you do? Where is that anyway?

    The 36/26 works pretty good for all the riding I do. I've never spun out the 36 on anything that wasn't a fireroad, and I can get up anything with the 26 ring that I could with any other gear combo. The one downside is I have to do more front derailleur shifts than with a 42-32-22 triple. With the triple I could ride in the 32 ring 95% of the time, with the double it's more like 70% in the 36 ring and 30% in the 26 ring.
    The picture is at Mt. St Helens in Washington, at the top of Ape Canyon trail.

    i'm thinking about taking the spacers off between the top of my head tube and my stem and moving them between the fork and the bottom of the top tube on my 4300 to make the frame feel bigger. anyone try this before? thoughts?

    DO you mean the spacers? People do that all the time...

    You can look a few posts up and see Straders pic, you can see there are some spacers on top of the stem. If you use a carbon fork, you have to have 5mm spacer on top of the stem before you lock it down, or you can crack the carbon at the top of the tube.
