      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.

              I had stopped riding bicycles for almost 18 years and decided that it would be a good idea to start over again. A friend had said that TREK were very good bike and I should have a look at it. The bike was exactly what I was looking for. After a winter to think it over I finally committed to buying the TREK bike. What a wonderful surprise to see that I and the bike fit each other. In no time I was back 18 years as if I had never left the bike world. Thank you TREK for such a wonderful bike. Keep up the good work.

              Comments:

              I've had this bike for about a year, and use it daily as my commuting bike for a 16 mile round trip commute in Washington DC. I also use it for 30-50 mile rides on the weekends. The pros: This is a very comfortable bike with a smooth ride. Accessories mount easily--I have a back rack, rear and front lights, water bottle holder, kickstand and a small front bag attached to mine. The bike is easy to handle and maneuver, and is stable--a big plus in city traffic. The tires are also good in rainy weather, and are durable. There's also a wide range of gears, which helps for hills. The suspension fork also allows for some fun riding off of the pavement that a road bike couldn't handle, such as crushed limestone or dirt trails. The cons: This bike is heavy and slow (my road biking friend called it a "tank"). Don't expect to average much above 13-14 MPH, even on an empty trail. This is partly because the upright position of this bike makes you a giant wind balloon, and also due to the weight of the bike. The shocks do not have a lockout feature, which can make hilly city riding less enjoyable, even with the wide range of gears. Overall I like this bike for commuting and weekend rides, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone who likes to ride fast.

              I never have owned a nice quality bike like a Trek I did my research and saved my money and bought my Verve2 and absolutely love it. Other than the tires being a little weak in the tread category, this bike has performed flawlessly. I get excited each and every time I jump on the seat and start a new riding adventure.

                        I've been on 4 rides in my first week and haven't had any problems. Shifting is easy and makes the ride so enjoyable.
