Miscellany: Trek 4900
I suppose I should post about my bike, a 2003 Trek 4900, proudly assembled in America from foreign and domestic parts (whatever the heck that means). It comes with Shimano Deore rear derailleur, Bontrager handlebars and stem, and RockShox Pilot C front suspension. I've since acquired Shimano Deore front derailleur, Kenda Kross Plus combo tires, Shimano HG chain, etc.
I like my bike. It's a great entry-level mountain bike, good for knocking around and abusing. It cost $450 new at Bikes and Bargains in Lake Worth, but that was a special deal. I am looking into getting a road bike for commuting, but I can't imagine not riding this thing into the ground.
