    What year is this Trek 4900 Alpha?

    What's up fellas? I am new to the forums here, and I have been biking on and off for quite some time now. I'm currently riding a Specialized Stumpjumper Comp M4 decked out with a full Fox suspension front to back.


    Anyways, I have a question about a bike that my buddy is about to buy. It is a Trek 4-Series 4900 Alpha with disc brakes, and Deore wheels with 26s on them, and a few other aftermarket parts on it. The guy said its a 2009 model but I can't find anything online to confirm that and I want to make sure we aren't getting screwed over. I'm wondering if anyone on here can tell me what year it is and if its worth the $420 that the man is asking for it. He won't budge on it either. He is firm on the price but the bike is in immaculate condition. He said it has less dings/knicks on the frame than his 2012 model. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Thanks!

    It is NOT a 2009, as the logo on the frame was used from 2002-2005. As for the rest of the bike, it is hard to confirm what year it is due to the possibly aftermarket fork and brakes.

    My guess is '03.

    Not a 2009. I had a 2008 or 2009 and it had the ugly green frame. Not worth the $400+ IMO. You can get a new one for in that ballpark.
