    Thought I was done mountain biking after all the bad crashes I’ve had. That was until yesterday...

    Been debating getting back into it and demoed a few hard tails over the last momth. Finally decided on a Trek Stache 9.7. Haven’t ridden a hard tail in 20 years, and have never been a huge Trek fan until I rode this one. Went out this morning on an easy test run, and the 29+ tires are like cheating on climbs. Super fun bike, let the games begin...again.

    It's not just the 29er tires, it's the WIDE rims and tires as well that help hugely with traction.

    I just looked at a blue ‘05 today up in Erie. If all goes well I hope to do the deal tomorrow. It has a new frame, 180k miles, new suspension, aftermarket front bumper, tonneau cover. Hopefully I get up to the mountains enough to justify it as a second vehicle.

    Does $13k sound reasonable for that truck in good shape? I drove it and there were no problems that I could see.

    So, worth the cost? Seriously considering making the investment.

    I would say it is probably the best bang for your buck performance and driveability wise. The lower gears have totally come alive. I havent driven it on the interstate yet, and wont for a while, but I can say that for the first time in well over a year I can put the truck in D as opposed to S4. I think my transmission had forgotten that it had any overdrive gears.

    6th gear feels awesome when you can finally use it!
    Just be sure to get some good heat cycles and swap fluid.

    Yep. Im pumped. My work is 14 miles one way so that will be several heating and cooling cycles. A couple weeks of that and a few short weekend trips mixed in and I think I can knock out the 500 miles safely, efficiently and quickly. I cant wait to feel how it it after they are good to give hell on!

    And in the midst of this break in period I hear people are wanting to make a Moab run :annoyed:
