    Trek 7000 questions

    Hey all -

    I am considering this bike as a beginner mountain bike:

    Trek 7000 with a E9 aluminum frame. It It has a 17" frame with a 28" standover height. It's 21 speed Shamano equip. and is in like new condition. Could be ridden by a woman or a man.

    Don't have the year and can't tell from the pic what the front shocks are as I am not yet a bike person - can any of you figure out any more details from the pic? Please let me know.

    Thanks!

    It looks like it has a rigid fork. Some people like rigid forks and some don't. I think it's safe to say that most beginners prefer suspension. I'm not sure I would pay more than $60 for that bike. If you're on a really tight budget it would do the job, but go check out a 4300 or a 4500 or any new bike and I promise you'll feel a world of difference. If this is a commuter bike it will do fine. If you really want to do trail riding, look elsewhere before you make up your mind.

    Having said all of this, I own a 7000 and love it - although it is a later model with some upgrades and...oh yeah...suspension....
