    Comments:

    I bought this model back in around 2004. I have used it almost exclusively on dirt/packed/gravel trails along the C&O canal in MD. This bike is perfect for this type of riding. I do not jump or hop fallen trees with this bike but it has proven reliable and extremely durable. I have worn out 2 sets of stock tires and now have Uniroyal Town and Country which make it even better. The seat was extremely uncomfortable, but was easily fixed by adding a good gel type seat over the top of original. As to durable, this bike survived a fall from a broken car carrier at 75 MPH on interstate 70! I saw it fall, bounce up about 10 feet and then tumble about 50 feet. When I was able to stop, I expected to back up and see a crushed pile of metal and I was going to remove it from roadway in pieces. When I got to it, I noticed the chain was off, a chunk was taken out of my seat, and the trip computer and water bottle were nowhere to be found! The rest of the bike was completely intact, NO bent pedals or other parts!! After fixing the carrier and putting bike back on rack, we continued to the trail. I placed chain back on bike and actually rode it for 22 miles, noticing just a very slight shimmy from front wheel! I have since put another 400 miles or so on it and not a glitch. My friend also saw the event and could not believe it but I do have a witness!

    Comments:

    Bought this bike for a two mile commute and riding the local bike paths. Rode it for two weeks and loved it overall. Seems like a solid machine and it handles very well. Minor faults: the Bontrager fenders I had installed on it are plastic, and my foot hits them if I pedal while turning at a certain angle. Love the rack I had installed, which allows me to carry heavy books across town like nothing. Biggest problem so far: after hauling my kids a few miles in a trailer, I suffered significant pain and bruising in my "soft tissue." Did not notice the problem while riding, but now it is clear that the hardness of the seat combined with its shape led to significant body damage while pedaling. Still working on a modification/replacement that will solve this, but probably will not be able to ride at all for a week or more in any case. A disappointment for me as, though this is on the low end of pricing for Trek bikes, it is much more expensive than any bike I've ever purchased, and I've never had this problem with any other bike.

      I have had this bike a few months now. It has been a great bike. Its a smooth riding bike and easy to ride. I have not been on a bike in 15 years and this bike has been a great step to get me back in the saddle. I do not like the seat, but I suspect that has less to do with the bike and more to do with me not being on a bike for so long. I have been on some trails but mostly ride it around town. It rides well on the road. Very happy with this bike

        Comments:

        I ride a lot, everyday, all kind of trails, all four seasons,so I can tell how this bike works in all conditions.I got it as a gift two years ago and use it to the maximum without changing anything on it so I can say it is really durable. I ride it on trails, in the woods, on bike paved paths, climbing and descending.It seems to be great on singletracks, offroad paths and better for descending than for climbing. Tires have relatively good adherence except for rocks,ice and steep climbing.On frozen icy paths it's not good. Also on asphalt because of the tires it is a little bit too slow.You have to push those pedals really hard to get some speed.A big minus- too heavy,made of metal. It gave me terrible electric shocks under power lines because of that so I had to wrap the saddle in electrical tape .

            I have always ridden hand-me-down, garage-sale type bikes. Got my son a Trek so he could commute to football practice all summer and once I test-drove his I loved it. When my garage-sale special was stolen, I decided to treat myself. The only way I can describe it is that it's like driving a Cadillac! =)

            Comments:

            Our 8 and 10 year old children just leaned to ride 2 wheeler bikes during the past year or two. My 1988 Schwinn Caliente skinny tires were shot and I wanted to participate in family rides around the neighborhood. Visited big box stores and two shops. Did not like quality in big box stores. A friend spoke highly about Trek quality. When I climbed onboard, it "felt right". Gears shift seamlessly. We look forward to getting a bike rack so we can go to some off road trails.

              I am using it to increase my physical activity to counteract the sedentary job I have along with my growing belly and decreased cardiovascular health. I need to shed some weight and the excess weight and poor back conditions prevents running effectively soft far the biking has proven satisfactory.
