2012 Trek 3700

Trek's 3700 is a comfortable, versatile ride that's at home on trails and tarmac. It sports Trek's nimble Silver Series aluminum frame and a plush 100mm-travel SunTour suspension fork for a light, lively ride and confidence over rocks, roots, potholes—you name it. You'll enjoy easy pedaling and complete control thanks to the quick-shifting 21-speed drivetrain, big, knobby tires and grippy mechanical-disc brakes. Plus, you'll love the comfy Bontrager seat.

    Supplied tires subject to many flats. Too many by my estimation for paved trail riding. Upgrade to Bontranger H2-Ultimate. Seat is uncomfortable after 15 miles. Other than these two points bike is good shifting, breaking, and looking! Fun to ride too!

    I have put in about 50 miles in the last two months and so far the bike is great, I had a flat tire from a verysmall thorn so that was dissapointing but since then I upgraded the tubes and haven't had a problem. Overall greatbike but tires are not whatI was expecting.

      The 3700 is great . I use it just about every day going about 50 to 60 miles a week. It is good in the city to were I sometimes use it to get around. I use on the trails though a lot more than in the city. I like the suspension a lot while going over rocks and roots and other obstacles. The finish is nice to. Overall I recommend it.

      Comments:

      I have the old 3700 (about 8 years old) so I don't know how much it compares to the new one, but if the new one is anything like my old one, this would be no doubt be on my shortlist when its time to replace my bike. Mine would not be too good for full mountain biking, but its been perfectly adequate for light trail and road use. A few years back, I put road tires and it made my bike such a good durable city commuter. Even after 8 years, it still feels strong, minus a creek in the main sprocket. It also drives better than any other bike I've been on, can't really put my finger on it but it just feels so much better (maybe because I've gotten used to it).

      Comments:

      This is my "spare" mountainbike. It is a good bike, but the website advertised it as a mountain bike and it clearly isn't. The geometry is not right for good fast trail riding. The tires on it sucked, so I bought new ones for it. The brakes were very weak as well. Now 1 year in, the fork is just about to break. However, it handles great because of the 26" wheels. The 3700 Disk is clearly not the bike for me, or anyone I ride with.

      Fantastic bike! Little uncomfortable seat but soon getting used to it. Great for wood trailing and tracks with the dog. Really good front suspension for bumps and jumps.

      I just got this bike and it was worth every penny.I use the bike for getting around my city and for trail riding,great bike. The front breaks are starting to sound loud when pressure is applied,the seat is very uncomfortable,I would suggest a gel seat,i intend to upgrade the breaks. I would have to rate this bike at 4.5 only because of the breaks and seat,otherwise a perfect 5 star bike.

      Trek 3700 is a pretty good bike. Good gear shifting, ok breaking. I found the seat to be uncomfortable while the handle bars are alittle too high (they couldve been alittle lower. My usage of the bike is asphat roads, slighty bumpy trails, hopping off the curbs and found its a great bike for me. The reveiws you find on the net are mainly on downhill expert trails. No one has really given a good reveiw on regular use, which most of us use any bike within a ten mile radius around home. Anyway a great bike!!
