the current bike

This is my current bike, a Trek 8000 on more or less indefinite loan from my best friend. From what I've been able to determine, it was a high-end mountain bike at the time of its purchase, back in the early- or mid-1990's.

It's still a very good bike, with Shimano Deore components, internal cable routing, etc.

However, it's a bit small for me, as the picture shows.

I've got a Magellan SporTrak GPS receiver mounted on the handlebar, which I find handy in a variety of ways.

This bike is great for off-road, and even on-road it holds its own nicely.
