Product Details

2014 Trek 3500 Disc

Trek's 3500 Disc is a quality mountain bike ready for any and every adventure. Trek's aluminum frame is light for nimble handling, easy acceleration, and quick climbing. It's also built tough so it's fully capable of handing real trail riding. The 3500's 75mm-travel suspension fork dispatches bumps, rough trails, and roots with ease, grace, and confidence. This trail-tamer delivers in the specs department too, with quick-shifting 21-speed Shimano gearing that makes easy work of the hills, a nice set of Bontrager wheels with fat, knobby tires, and disc brakes that are powerful and controllable in all conditions.

    Great bike!

    By Trail wrecker

    from Toronto, ON

    About Me Avid Cyclist

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Controllable
    • Durable

    Cons

    • Poor Gear Shifting
    • Loud Breaks When Wet

    Best Uses

    • Mountain Biking
    • Cold Weather
    • Commuting

    Comments:

    I use the product as an everyday commute, and a single-track bike on the weekends. It's easy to control in traffic, stops well in the snow and rain, and handles jumps, rocks, tree stumps etc... Very nicely. The only problem with this bike is the occasional gear skip. Other than that it's a great bike for the price.

      Hidden problems

      By Mike with the Bike

      from NJ

      About Me Avid Cyclist

      Pros

      • Decent Shifting
      • Cheap

      Cons

      • Tires Popped

      Best Uses

      • Commuting

      Comments:

      This bike was great. The bike was a huge upgrade from my other trek 24 inch. But there is one main drawback. While i rode the bike often the tiers popped. In 2 weeks i popped 4 inner tubes. Now, i never changed my riding style from my old bike and i only popped those tubes once (with hard beating). I think this is because the geometry. So if you are looking for a bike that can get you to school or work the bike is fine. But once you start doing jumps and drops the bike dose not hold up well. I also did not like the grips but i changed those easily so that is not the deciding factor.
