            My first ride on this bike was a twenty-five mile ride on the streets and hills of Pittsburgh. It was made so easy by this bike, I finally found my favorite bike and look forward to riding for years to come! (I'm 67 yrs. young)

            Being on the north side of 65 my doctor advised more exercise to stem the increase in weight since retirement. I don't care for mall walking and jogging kills the knees. I decided to do the bike riding thing. WOW was I surprized at how much fun exercise could be. The Vere 2 fit my needs perfectly. It handles great, shifts are both quick and smooth. My rides are a combination of paved roads and gravel tracks and I have had no problems in negotiating them on the Vere's stock tires. I look forward to my rides every day and hope to keep rideing for years to come.

              Comments:

              After deciding to start riding again after several years to get back into shape, I pulled my old " big box store" mountain bike out. At 52 I quickly decided this wasn't the bike for me. I did some research and went to the local Trek dealer. I explained what I was looking for in a bike and he pointed me to the Verve. He was right on the money. This bike is well built, good looking, very comfortable, fit my budget and is just plain fun to ride. I now ride about 8 miles every day.

                    I ride my Trek almost everyday after coming home from work for fun and exercise. I often ride with my girlfriend who bought the bike for me because she already had a Trek Pure and she felt it would be fun for us to ride together, she was right. The only thing I can find that isnt perfect about my Verve 2 is the front sprocket change is a bit clunky and not as precise as the rear gear changes, but not enough to be a problem. I call my Trek the Grey Ghost because of its color and its quiet operation.
