    Post your Trek/Fisher/Klein

    I know there has been some posts in the past like "Post your Sugar or Fuel" but I wanted to start a thread to post my 8500. Even if you have posted your bike in the past I'd like to see it and get to know some of the people.

    Here is my Trek 8500 stock right after I got it from the shop. I'll post some more later when I change some things out and scratch it up.

    Hey Jman,

    I love your bike; I used to have a Trek Hard Tail 8900SL? I just sold it but I always loved that bike and it wasnt spec'd half as nice as yours. Must be a blast to ride, enjoy.

    I just got the ride earlier this week. I haven't got to do anything but road riding on it, and I had the fork on lockout, so I haven't got familiar with anything but the shifting. I plan to be out all day tomorrow and Sunday on the trails riding this beauty. I can't imagine how much of a difference it is going to be from my 02 4500.

    This is also stock right now. I have been pinching pennies for a year to get this bike so I haven't got much of accessories. I am about about to order a Hydrapak (far past tired of using my water bottles), Lizardskins chainstay protector, and possibly some Fire XCs (never had them). I thought about being different and a little wild by putting a red tire on the front, and a blue one on the back lol. Hey, that combo would still match my bike right?

    Again, like Spaz said not as hot as NJFUELGUY's, but I love it!!

    One more.


    P.S. NJFUELGUY, you do not have too much red. I would not change it. Too cool!!

    Have a great weekend my fellow mtnbikers.

    Thank you. Not bad for a newbie. This is all I have. Unfortunately I do not own a digital camera. I had to borrow the one I used to take these. Maybe some day. Here is a like with all the pics I have. How about you? Any more pics of yours?

    My Fuel 80

    Here are a few of my Fuel 80. So far, I've changed out the pedals for Crank Bros. Candies, the saddle for a WTB Speed V Race, and the fork for a Duke SL U-Turn. and sime Panaracer Fire XC Pro tires. This week, my new wheels with disc hubs and my Avid mech disc brakes arrive.

    The poor baby is bored and raring to go...


    Now, she's in her element, getting some fresh air!!!

    update

    Well - Here is my Fuel 98 after a few months of modifications. I put a pair of Formula B4s (couple with AMclassic/Velocity wheels) on it, got rid of the little nub of a stem I had, and fit the bike with a set of Nokian tires. Honestly- they all made a perfect bike a little better. Funny thing is my epic doesn't even compare (and is subsequently for sale). Once you have the opportunity to ride both, the epic feels sluggish. Another mechanic at work picked up a 98 and feels the exact same way-and wants me to list his epic on Ebay!! Hopefully- Trek won't change the Fuel too much.

    My first bike. Logged hundreds of miles on it. I fell in love with mt biking because of it. I upgraded to FS a month ago, but will always keep it. Hey--it's my old friend, how could I get rid of it??
