I was browsing craigslist and came across this.

http://scranton.craigslist.org/bik/724528321.html

If link does not work it is a 99' Trek VRX 400. Below is description

"this BOMB-PROOF bike only rode 3 seasons in sandy trails in N. MI! was $1800 new Medium, 27 spd, Full ICON spec, Alluminum, fully independent rear link suspension, 5" travel front and rear - sedt rear for all terr, XC, or down hill! great for bigger riders (like me) as i never bottomed out even off 3-4'drops! new front XT derailleur
needs tune up, and possibly new chain and rear cassette"

He is asking $400

no not really
the bike is 10 years behind the times - 10 years of better suspension designs, better shocks, better forks, better frames.

i owned a vrx 400...great bike when i rode it....7 years ago...now i cant imagine going back to a suspension design that bobs so much when pedaling...in fact i bought a hardtail after owning this :). however..i think it depends on what you are using it for...if you plan on mainly shuttling or going downhill, its not a bad bike...the suspension works fine and the front shocks weren't all that bad
