    i didnt have my glasses on and from pic 2 i can see it crystal clear lol

    ^^ sad that all he has done is troll away , been proven wrong on every point and ended up trawling ebay for a bike, what a joker.

    Op the bike looks brand new and if you are happy with it then who cares. 'I've bought something what do you think' threads always get blasted on here

    you've linked to the 2010 model, this one must be about 8 years old..hardly the same comparison.

    The one you've got is probably worth what you paid for it.
    Edited by: "souljacker" 6th Nov 2010

    Agreed, it can't be very new. Its a long time since fork-seals were improved to get rid of the silly rubber covers you have on the forks on that bike...

    2001 model I reckon.

    Still a decently made bike so if its in very good nick I guess you've done okay, but its not really a good comparison to a 2010 model...

    Yea, I wasn't saying it is the same as the 2010 model. Souljacker sounded suprised that a basic trek with v brakes would cost £400 and I was just showing him it almost does.

    I think my bike is maybe 2001 model. I am not sure. It's about 8 or 9 years old. It cost about £350 new I think. It's in mint condition.

    Any way to tell exactly what year my bike is from? From any of the markings on the bike?

    That site doesn't show far back enough to see mine.
