mtbreview.com has just started to list all of the 2004 models, just not sure if
the particular model you are asking about has been reviewed yet.

Here's one:

Treks break when ridden regularly as a mountain bike. You see, trek,
like many other cookie cutter bike companies bank on their bikes not
being used much after initial purchase. Joe Consumer sees a mtn dew
commercial, goes out and buys a bike from them. Joe proceeds to ride
the bike and finds out it's real work and therefore is a drag. Bike
ends up being a car chamois drying rack in Joe's garage, on eBay, or
on a paved bike path two Saturdays a year when the weather is perfect.
The loss factor on those bikes that are actually used and are broken
is a given to them, especially since the high volume of chamois dryers
sold pays for the few that have to be warrantied.

I first shed a tear on this one... and then started bawling because it's SO
TRUE!
