I was looking for a bicycle for my wife & came across a used one advertised as a "Trek Single Track". The seller tells me that "Single Track" is the model although I can't seem to find it anywhere (Trek catalog, web site or here at mtb review). Does anyone out there know if there is such a Trek model & if so, does it go by any other name? Appreciatively, Scott

Trek 930 SingleTrack

I don't think they make it any longer, but my hardtail mountain bike is a Trek 930 SHK Single Track, Have had mine for 5 years and would love to buy another one just like it. Which is why I am here right now. Tough to find current models with Chro-Moly in that price range.

As another reference point, I bought my daughter an used 2003 Trek 830 -- when I looked at Trek site, it was also called a ST 830 or Single Track 830. I own a Trek 930, too, and it has Single Track in the name on the bike.

Trek

made a lot of models called single track for a long time. Had an early one that was a 970 singletrack, it was pretty far up the line up as it was tripple butted cromo, and i believe it was the last of the fully lugged frames. It was my first serious mt bike. Jim

times were (1993-98?) that the 900 numbered models (930-950-970-990) were "singletracks" with the 930 probly the most popular. all pretty good, usa built, cromo bikes tho not all models shared the same tubing. 800 series models were "mountain tracks" and of somewhat lesser quality cromo frames. hope this helps.

It depends on the amount of travel the shock has. If I remember correctly, the travel on the shock that came with my 930 only had 30mm or 40mm of travel. I ran a shock with 75mm of travel and it did well enough--it was a little 'twitchy' on the climbs but not too bad.
