Product Details

2013 Trek X-Caliber (Gary Fisher Collection)

Trek's X-Caliber rules the trails with its light, stiff Trek Gold aluminum frame with Gary Fisher G2 Geometry. It's quick and capable, and offers excellent climbing, descending and handling so you ride your favorite trails faster with the same effort. Leading the charge is a custom 100mm-travel RockShox Reba fork that soaks up the rough stuff. And, a SRAM/Shimano 3x10 drivetrain lets you steamroll over, across and down pretty much whatever Mother Nature puts in front of you. Plus, the X-Caliber boasts Bontrager's great tubeless-ready 29-inch wheels with meaty 2.2-inch tires, sure-stopping Avid discs and a host of legit Bontrager components

      Comments:

      I use this bike for urban patrol. I added some Toughy Liners to the stock tires and set the TP at 60 lbs. I ride through all the nastiest alleys Baltimore has to offer plus all the hills and parks. I honestly feel like I'm riding a Cadillac after riding the other police bicycles given to us.

          I ride this bike nearly every day (except in the winter time and rain) for multiple miles and it's AWESOME!! I live in Queens, NY and I'm all over the place: up/down sidewalks, over rivers (puddles) and through woods (parks) and to Grandmother's house too. I'm a lean, mean, bike-riding machine and I totally recommend this bike. By the way I'm 6'4 tall and this bike fits perfect.

          Brakes are good, frame is excellent. The position your in has you ready for racing. Acceleration on this bike is awesome and will be better once you shed those grams. The crankset, and cassette however are junk!!! Get rid of that three ring crank and you'll shed lots of weight. Also why are they mismatching components such as a shimano casette with a sram x7 derailluer? I've had nothing but issues with tuning the derailluers until I found out why. This bike needs new crankset, and a casette if you want smooth crisp shifting. Not to mention the casette they use is well over 450 grams!!! By going down to a single speed in the front, and getting a new casette and moding it with a 42 tooth wolftooth or OneUP you will shed somewhere around 3.5 lbs.

          First 29er. Intermediate experience. Commute to work 3/5 days per week (60% dirt, 40% street) totaling 30 miles per week. Durable, light feel, fast, remote lockout is useful when constantly changing between street/dirt during my commute. Brakes are a little noisy, the rear especially, but this is a fairly simple fix. Overall fantastic bike. Cant beat Trek quality, air fork, and awesome gearing.

          I was skeptical about the hype around the G3 geometry. But I am thoroughly impressed the superfly 6 handles and corners every bit as well as my stumpjumper. But it does it with comfort.

            This is a great bike with really good components, I had first bought a carve comp but took it back because the brakes were a joke and the lbs could not get them to work right so I exchanged it for a new 2014 superfly 6 and I am so glad I did this bike is flawless.

              Comments:

              I've owned several bikes over the years but never one of this quality. I purchased a Trek Marlin a few months ago but quickly discovered that it was way too clunky for me. When I set out searching for a new bike, I had lightweight and good components in mind. I found exactly what I was looking for in this bike. The first time I took it out last weekend, I was shocked at how easily it was to maneuver around corners, up hills and down descents. I actually almost spilled going over a root because I didn't realize how light the bike was and ended up getting more air than I had intended to. The air shock is like riding on a cloud, even down rock gardens and over roots. The derailers shift without hesitation and the brakes stop when you want them to. Overall I would recommend this bike to anyone who is looking for a great quality bike for a relatively affordable price.
