Strengths:    This is a hybrid bike, so the frame is very light. My father bought this when i was born, about 15 years ago. The bike is still working fine though, except for the purple bling tyres that came with. Pretty tyres they were. Goes with the paintjob. All's well except that its fully rigid, considering getting a new fork though.

Weaknesses:    Fully rigid

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the great value (considering its lasted 15 years of madman abuse.) Simply too good to be true.

Strengths:    Great frame. I bought this new in 1993 with the assurance that it was a full-on race frame with bargain components that could be upgraded as needed. Turns out I never raced it, but the components (STX) were pretty good except for the cranks. There was some weird chainsuck issue and Trek replaced the cranks with XT Deore components; problem solved. This bike is light, it's been extremely durable through the dozen or so spills I've had on it. I use this as a commuter and it's been great.

Weaknesses:    It's aluminum, it's light, and it transmit road bumps straight up your spine. I feel beat up at times after a ride to and from work.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike. Don't know if I'll ever buy another new bike again, but I've been extremely happy with this. I'm looking at picking up a road bike to make the commute a bit faster, but that's on down the line.

Strengths:    The frame has lasted almost 10 years! Also, the "Silver Bullet" paint job hides all the scratches that have made it past the paint. The factory Matrix wheels made it a long way before they gave out, so they were ok.

Weaknesses:    The rear dropout is not replaceable..they fixed that problem the next year. The STX shifters broke on my kneecaps(thankfully not vice-versa)in the first year of use, and the rest of the STX group went out with wear. The factory pedals had plastic webs, which I imagine a heavier rider would have broken long before I did. SPDs are a welcome improvement. The factory Mogul fork is heavy but solid, and easy to rebuild and tune. It is an air-oil setup which I am told was built by Showa...could be a myth. Stiction is a pain with this fork, and you have to run the air pressure up high(stiff) or even the lightest rider can bottom the shock out. Bottom-out on steep down grades leads to easy endos due to the lowered front end- took me a while to figure that one out.

Bottom Line:   
If you find one of these bikes at a pawn shop... or down some dark alley.. if the price is right and the frame fits, it is a builder's bike, one that takes new components as well as old. I haven't checked to see how well an 8 or 9 speed rear hub fits, though. You have to appreciate the fact that everything on the thing, save maybe the wheels and the truck-like front fork, will be junk. Excellent frame, that bike...

Bottom Line:   
For the money, it is a very good bike that is light and fits me fine.

Strengths:    The lightweight aluminum frame is a real plus for those super technical trails and areas where you have to hike carrying your bike. The components have far outlasted what I would have expected.

Weaknesses:    A bike in this pricerange should have been equipped with a front suspension fork

Bottom Line:   
Great Bike, I plan to keep riding it for a good while.. look to replace some components before long, but still no problems with it. A great bike for any rider in my opinion.
The first trail out I had a minor mishap on some wet leaves covering a patch of slate rock.. warping the front wheel terribly.. a quick trip to the bike shop where I purchased it and the guy straightened it out in no time.. still going on that rim

Strengths:    Longevity

Weaknesses:    Wieght (Modern Day)

Bottom Line:   
The fork sucked since day one. Trek Mogul. STX componets have never failed. Trek wheels hardly ever needed to be straighted. Overall this bikes has more than paid for it's self. I hope my new bike (FOES FXC) turns out to be such a great bike.
