So I went to the bike shop today to buy a new freewheel for my trek mountain bike. lol I ended up leaving with a new Trek 6000 series hardtail mountain bike they had on closeout for $700. Not a bad deal since it regularly goes for around $900. I was planning on getting a new bike in the spring but couldn't pass up this deal. Too bad its 30 something degrees today, I just rode it around the neighborhood and it's COLD! Its suppose to be warmer tomorrow so i'm gonna go hit the trails.
I got into mountain biking about a year and a half ago and bought a cheap trek 3700 for $300 new and I have beat that bike to death. I have been riding the advanced trails and that bike really isn't designed to take that sort of abuse.
This new one should last me a few more years until its time to upgrade again.
