This was my first mass produced bike since I was a teenager. I saw the Sawyer in a catalog and I felt that even though it was mass produced, it would be a very special bike. It has adjustable dropouts so it can run as a single speed, and the frame is also compatible with belt drive! Wild! Trek had these on mega closeout a few months ago, I picked up the absolute last 17.5" at an absurd discount.

I love to ride this thing, around town it is the most badass beach cruiser. On the trail, it is a hoss. I don't even mind that it lacks front suspension.

Eventually, I would love to customize it, upgrade some components here and there, maybe add a suspension fork just to see what it is like. I'm also tempted to give belt drive a try. Trek really did a great job with this bike and I am so thrilled to own one!

The chromoly frame is a work of art reminicient of the very first mountain bikes. Although mass produced, this is a higher end bike that had to be special ordered. Score!

.

If I had the money I would totally buy one of these. Although the front end looks insanely high.. What did you pay for it?

Well

MSRP was about 1500. I paid a little less than a third after all was said and done. Regarding the front end, it was designed with idea that some buyers may want to add a suspension fork down the road. I forget the exact specs, but it is for either 80 or 100mm of travel.
