      I bought this after multiple back and neck injuries believing that it would be good for fitness. (I am 35 a veteran and former athlete) This is my first bike so I didn't fully understand what I was getting in to. The bike shop was fairly misleading as well. I outgrew this bike within 3 months but promised myself that I would put 1000 miles on it before trading up. (300 to go!) It is only relatively decent at casual strolls through the park. Its not quite comfy enough or upright enough to really enjoy a true recreational ride. The gearing is great for climbing hills and very slow rides. It will get you going on the street for fitness, though it is not quite set up for efficiency. Seat and pedal placement was tricky. And it is not very stable as the front fork is not raked out very far. So, hands on the bars at all times. I do appreciate the oversized tires as they absorb a lot of shock from the road. The seat and post also help with this. The geometry is perfectly(frustratingly) in-between recreation and road. In my case I guess it is a "glass half empty" scenerio. When I want it to be a fitness bike it comes close but misses by a mile. When I want to cruise with my daughter and wife through the park it is close but not enough for me to enjoy the ride. But here is where this bike shines.... Commuting! This is an ideal commuter bike for runs up to 20 miles on relatively flat ground. See, there is a silver lining here! If you need a strong commuter, this is perfect in any generation. The Verve 2 has better equipment, but you can pick up a Verve 1 for $200 less and it is a well made bike. Great for COMMUTERS Frustrating for FITNESS Decent for RECREATION

          Gearing seems to be more to the LOW side. Seems like I have 100 low gears that could pull a train but only one high gear for speed (could be its just the type of bike I bought).

              I got my Trek Versa 1 for my 50th birthday. I had just gotten back into cycling after 20 years "rest". I had been riding a 16 year old Wal-Mart mountain bike, but the wife rewarded my new vitality with the Trek. In the 2 1/2 weeks since, I have ridden about 250 miles on the Versa 1 and love it. I even did a 72 mile day on the Katy Trail in Missouri!

              I just turned 50 and had been out of cycling for several years. This past summer, I tried to get back into riding for health reasons. My previous bike was a Mongoose mountain bike, full suspension. I never knew how heavy and slow that bike was until I rode my new Trek Versa 1. My wife got it for my birthday last week and I've already put about 100 miles on it, including a 42 mile ride the first day. It really does make a difference to have a real, well-made bike! I look forward to many, many miles of healthy enjoyment from my new Trek. See you on the paths and trails! PS, the con on my rating, is according to my wife and daughter, I like the brown seat!
