First delivered Second Spin project

Well, I've had my first completed sale.  This weekend I built a 94/95 Trek 8900 Composite mountain bike.  I originally purchased this bike on eBay to part out for a really nice Shimano M900 gruppo.  The bike wasn't used much and was in excellent condition and definitely worth rebuilding for another owner.

The new owner wanted a good city bike and this fit the size and weight requirements.

Aside from the M900 gruppo that I removed the bike remains pretty much intact, with a very nice Answer Atac stem, matching Hyperlite handle bar and vintage Control Tech post.

We decided to build it as a 1x8 using some LX/XT drivetrain I had left over form a Klein Adroit I sold a while back. 

Tires are Bontrager Eco city tires which provide very low rolling resistance and very smooth ride.  All in all the project will bill out under $400 with the new tires and tubes, all other parts were recycled.

I hope the new owner enjoys many fun miles up in Park City!!!
