    Trek Session 77??

    I'm 6' tall, but pretty light, and used to small bikes. (bmx cruiser, giant STP) Do you think the 15" frame will be too small? I could care less about the seat height, I just worry about the top tube length.... I might score an '05 in perfect shape for about $900. Should I seriously consider it, or should I keep looking? I just need a bike for whistler once a year, and falls city once in a while.

    I would sure like to get some opinions on this bike!! Has anyone ridden one? I think I can get it for around $900, which seems like a killer deal....

    Ok, I went and sat on one at the local Trek dealer and it felt good. I'm actually temped by the one they have, they custom built it, and it's setup sweet with a Jr. T, saint derailer, Deity chainguide, and some other nice parts. $2100 makes the $900 deal look pretty sweet though. I'm going see if I can snag the '05. Thanks for the replies fellas.

    2005 Session 77 stock set-up retail is 3409.99. You will have to do some tweaking to get it to fit you right though. I think it may be too small in my opinion but for $900.00...

    I'm used to small bikes, I ride a 24" BMX. The small Trek at the shop felt fine, so I think it will work. I can probably get my $$ back out of it if I decide later on that I don't like it. Payment of $900+75 for shipping sent, I should get it sometime late next week!

    They've had a price reduction.

    The '06 77 with the Travis fork and other excellent components should be priced around $2100-$2500 depending on the individual shop's markup policy. One of the other guys who works at our shop just bought one. The dealer cost price is phenomenal right now.

    True, I forgot about the excellent close out prices Trek is giving on the '06 models. I should have known better since I just picked up an '06 Fuel EX9 for $1700.00. Get 'em while you can.

    I'm still pretty damned stoked about getting one in new condition for $900.
    These things are somewhat under-rated from what I've read on them. They tend to get really excellent reviews, yet don't seem nearly as popular as some of the other freeride bikes out there. Maybe they are just not marketed as aggressively.

    I will try and get some good action shots as soon as I can... I plan to run up to Falls City when it dries up a little around here. Next week is going to suck, waiting for the bike to arrive.

    i snagged the same bike midway through last season, my first real big rig, i am 6ft 190 and i run the 15.5 in,
    I ride a little xc with it and its a bit cramped but for everything else its fine.
    Id say you may want to swap out the rear spring though if its stock depending on how much u weigh the 350 that it comes with is a bit mushy for my size.
    I think a 70mm stem and a setback seat post may also help your cause if your doing anything other than lift serviced
    Super efficient and a pretty good ride overall

    I am only 155 lbs, so hopefully it will be ok. I sat on a 15.5" bike at the local trek dealer and it seemed fine. I'll see if I can score another spring anyway, but first I will be needing a chainguide.

    good deal. i think the reason they seem under rated is bevause they are basically a stinky. nothing stands out about them, but they are really good bikes.
