Trek’s cheapest entry level mountain bicycle. Built on a sturdy custom steel frame, this bike will be able to take a beating and keep rolling.
This is Trek’s lowest priced adult bicycle in 2017. It is marketed as an entry level mountain bike, but is also at home cruising around town or to campus. It has a few features not normally found on a mountain bike – like rear rack mounts. It doesn’t come with any advanced features and is more akin to a bike from the early 2000s with linear pull brakes and entry level Shimano derailleurs. That said, this bicycle should be able to take quite a pounding on the trails, and also feel comfortable commuting around town.
