Picked this up off CL for $300. Will need a new front shock by the winter time at which point I'll also powder coat it and upgrade to hydraulic brakes as well, but not a bad rig on the cheap. Should be a fun build and a great bike for getting back on the trails.

The mechanical disc aren't all that bad. They're a lot easier to deal with than hydro, and arguably better than bad hydros. Looks like Avid BB5's?

Yep BB5's, they just got refurbished with new pads and rotors when the previous owner had the bike tuned up so that's good as well. They're not immediately getting replaced unless I come across a screaming deal, but I may upgrade to BB7's just for the hell of it. I had them on my Rockhopper and enjoyed them. Really the only pressing thing is to locate a new front fork.

Cool bike! - I recently purchased a new Trek X Caliber with all the goodies and already changed the grips and pedals lol. Mountain biking is a blast!

That is a good vacuum. Be careful not to get the switch wet though, I have had mine shock me a few times when wet.
