The TREK 6000 is an excellent hardtail mountain bike. Nearly a decade rolling since the day I bought her, she runs beautifully, shifts perfectly, and rides like a dream. She's got over 3000 miles on her and it doesn't show. Cosmetically, you can tell she's been around the block (or from New to Boston in a weekend) but, other then that she's flawless. I had originally bought her as an around-the-block beater. After two years of sitting in my garage gathering dust, I pulled her out for a trip to Boston from Bear Mountain, New York, and the training that that involved. Old TREK carried me along my many travels, we met some great friends along the way, and we became great friends ourselves in the process.

She far exceeded all of my expectations. Her aluminum frame is reasonably light for a mountain bike and at one point during the Northeast AIDS ride (see above), I remember jumping a set of railroad tracks at about 35MPH, the 6000 ate it up. We've ridden many a trail and she's never let me down or left me stranded. The only modifications I made to this bike were SPD clipless pedals and some slick road tires. Since then I've gone back to my knobbies and now reserve her exclusively for the trail. Better bikes have come out since then. Technology has come along a great deal but she'll never be replaced in my stable.
