Product Details

2013 Trek 3500

Trek's 3500 is a quality mountain bike ready for every adventure. Trek's Silver aluminum frame is light for nimble handling, easy acceleration and quick climbing. It's also built tough so it's fully capable of handing serious trail riding. Plus, the 3500's suspension fork dispatches bumps, rough trails, rocks and roots with ease, grace and confidence. This ripper delivers in the components department too, with a quick-shifting 21-speed Shimano drivetrain that makes easy work of the hills, powerful linear-pull brakes and a nice set of Bontrager wheels with fat, knobby tires.

        I have this bike-and it is a 2012 also-when I got this bike the shocks were so hard-they were not compressing -I guess because the bike was made in 2012 something happened to the grease inside the shocks that the shocks were not responding- I took it back to the shop- they fix the problem for $ 15.00(they out grease inside again) good luck $$$

          Comments:

          I have just recently turned over 200 miles on this bike. Only have had to replace front inner tube twice. Stock tires are not so great, very thin and poor tread life. Seat is comfy. Gearing from mega range to next gear seems like a big jump for a beginner rider when climbing.

          Comments:

          I ride this bike on my commute to school everyday, and never have any serious problems with the bike, but during my weekend sessions out on the trails the bike preforms great in slow controlled environments, and poorly in the more technical trails. Its a good beginner level bike, but if your looking for a great everyday trail bike this isn't the one for you.

          Have had this bike for 8 months now and it has stood up to the reputation of the Trek name. Great bike, quality parts. The only thing I've had to replace is the axle bearings and pedals. Overall would recommend to any beginner.

            Comments:

            The description says that the fork has 80mm of travel. That is incorrect. It's actually only 63mm (check the Trek website directly). Decent bike but seems a bit pricey for what you get.
