Trek 4900 - Solid mountain bike, especially for the price!

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.

You're right, John. Trek's products are solid from their bottom up to the top. I've competed on my 4900... just a local, supremely amateur event, but it rode as good as the bikes I once rode which were much more expensive. My 4900 came with the basic Deore component set, something I've considered upgrading but at this point, it's been fine as-is. I've never been a fan of disc brakes; guess I'm just super old-school and not heavy into competition anymore... I don't think I'll be in a situation where disc brakes are all too necessary. Thanks for your reply!
