Trek Y33


Pete just sent me this photo of his broken carbon seat post, but his carbon framed 1997 Trek Y33 is still going strong. These frames have a lifetime warranty. If it broke I wonder what Trek would replace it with? Nothing as cool, that's for sure. I love looking at these old mountain bikes, when Unified Rear Triangle was considered hi-tech, now it's only for Walmart bikes.

I have one of these bikes hanging in my garage collecting dust..it has not seen any action in at LEAST 6 yrs (I've been busy having babies, lol!)
If anyone is interested in purchasing, name a price. It is complete. Nice bike...just do not need it! My husband & I got matching bikes & this style is more his then mine (shhhh, don't tell him!) so I really did not ride it much (or hard) It did turn a lot of heads though. That was fun! ;-)

What would you want to part with it? My daughter is looking for something different.

I should mention that I am in So Calif.
Are you around here?
To be honest I am not sure what price is fair. I paid $2000 for it about 9yrs ago(it was the top-of-the-line for it's time)...& it has basically sat in the garage most of that time.
I need to take it down from the rafters, dust it off & get some photos. Will list on Craigslist (or ebay, although their fees & rules are getting ridiculous!)
Let me know if you're still interested.

Meh, Y33 looks cool, but the suspension is crappy by today's standards. Trek would probably do you a favor and upgrade you to a Fuel EX.
