  • Very nice, welcome to the 6700 club. Just crying out for a white saddle tho :wink:

    Noticed yours had a white saddle and grips, did they come with or purchased after?

  • I managed to convince my lbs to change the saddle to white FOC, the grips came from my old bike. The lbs also changed my riser bars for a straight bar, I wanted to be in an aggresive riding position, they do the job...

    Same with my lbs they only had the 6500 and below, they were quoting late may for any deliveries in my size.

    Charge spoon is nice, see plenty of people on here, have one or recommend it, will have to see how things go with this one, back end is getting use to it slowly!

    Very nice mate, I would almost say sexy :?

    I love Trek's white and black paint scheme, same as my 8500.

    I commute on the older style 6700 disk and find it realy efficient.

    Love the 6700!! Is there really a huge difference between full
    suspension and hardtail? I'd love to get the Fuel
    Ex 7 or 8 but dont think there is $700 in value with the full
    suspension...especially considering I'll be doing quite
    a bit of road riding.

    What do you think gang?

    very nice :) i love treks :)
  • Never ridden one myself, but that's nevertheless a cool looking bike. Trek really have got very striking paint schemes :)

    selling the bike?
  • Had mine almost a year now. Still chuffed with it, raced it, taken it to Afan, Cwmcarn, Surrey Hills. Changed the stock tyres to Panaracer fire xc's and gone for a flat bar, other than that it's still standard.
