For 2012, Trek Bikes has introduced a bike especially designed for riders who are looking for a mountain bike that features pro geometry, shorter back end, and longer top tube. These features make this bike called 6000 ideal for those who are starting off on a mountain bike.
The beginner-friendly features of the 6000’s Alpha Gold aluminum frame include its semi-integrated head tube, formed top tube, and formed down tube with integrated gusset. The frame also has monostay seatstay, replaceable derailleur hanger, and forged dropouts with rack and fender mounts.
Very affordable, the 2012 Trek 6000 Mountain Bike is perfect for MTB beginners who are on a budget. Still, high quality is offered by its Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, lightweight and aggressive Bontrager XR1 tires, and 3×10 Shimano crankset and XT rear derailleur that offer 10-speed performance.
