Trek 4900 - Solid mountain bike, especially for the price!
Feb 27, 2009
I own a Trek 4900 mountain bike and couldn't be more pleased. I was fortunate enough to grab it on sale a few years ago, and it's been one heck of a ride. I've owned several other brands (GT, Diamond Back to name two) and this Trek blows them away.
The component set is solid for a casual rider, and definitely good enough for a more experienced rider.
The frame is solid, yet nice and lightweight. I can get crankin' real good on this bad boy!
That said, it's tough to find the 4900 right now, as it's a few years old and I'm pretty certain that those that own them won't be wanting to let go of them. However, you can find Trek mountain bikes in the $500 range that are definitely comparable.
