Trek 850 Mountain Bike, Circa 1990
After finishing my professional training in 1990, I wanted to start bicycling again
after not doing any cycling for 12 years. At the time, mountain bikes were all the
rage and most small shops stocked mostly MTB's and few road bikes. I was seriously
ignorant about bicycles at the time and ended up buying a Trek 850 mountain bike
that I rode almost exclusively on paved roads. After a year, I learned more and
replaced it with
a road bike that I ordered from Performance.
Later on, I bought
a better mountain bike made by Cannondale and eventually scraped the Trek
850 for parts.
