Awesome score. That bike deserves better, glad you “rescued” it!So what I did today is fine this Trek Mountain Track on a dog walk today out at the curb at someone’s house a few blocks over. After debating to go back for it during dinner i decided to go grab it after I sent the 14 year old to go ride his current bike and check it out. Brought it home for a better assessment.
Filled the tires and put it up on the stand to see how it looked. Tubes hold air and wheels are true. Tires seem ok not rotted and lots of life left. Front tire even has some new tire nubs still on it. Front der works fine. Rear derailleur won’t shift the shifter may be busted since I can tighten and loosen the cable tension and the rear will
Shift up and down one cog. Chain is rusty needs to be replaced but wasn’t frozen solid. Seems like this bike sat in an external garage or decent shed it’s not a complete mess.
Took it for a quick test ride and it seems to roll ok. Will keep it for now and tinker with it alongside youngest son who told me this retro bike is totally cool. Pretty sure it’s a 1995 model.
Off to google to see how to adjust/fix the shifter or might need to replace it.

How much Stans do you think you may need?Wound up with an extra 180 rotor and adaptor so went a little bigger on the fattie.
Snake bite on the rear of the tracer and I’d just ordered new tires, so on it went. Ran to REI for Stans and they were out. Dunno if anyone else has found shortages but looks like I can ship to store, or maybe stop by a shop over the weekend.
