View Full Version : FS: Trek 6000 mountain bike CHEAP

07-06-2005, 11:57 AM
1999 TREK 6000 hardtail mountain bike for sale. color: red. Front suspension (Rock Shox Indy S). Has Grateful Dead dancing bear stickers on front fork (easily removed with WD-40).

Excellent condition. I rode this bike to university for 1 year, then moved to Canada and it sat in my parents garage in Minnesota until December when I brought it to Calgary. I have all of the original documentation, etc.

Tuned up last January. The bike needs a new freehub (this is the thing that lets you pedal backwards). I had it into a shop to replace the freehub but they couldn't unstick it, and said it would be easiest to get a new back wheel (about $80).

Make an offer. I paid $900 USD in 1999.

not sure how many speeds (lots) I can check tonight and get back to you. It does ride forward but you would want to replace the freehub right away

Sorry man, but that's too much for that bike, especially if I have to put more $ in to fix it. You got ripped off when you bought it if you paid $900US for it.
