2014 Trek Verve 3

Trek's Verve 3 is a super-plush ride no matter where you choose to roam thanks to an easy-pedaling aluminum frame and a suspension fork that smooths any road or path. Sublime comfort comes in the form of a relaxed, easy-on-the-back riding position and adjustable stem with wide handlebars. Plus, you'll love the cushy Bontrager seat and suspension seatpost that makes the bumps disappear. In addition to being comfortable, the 24 gears provide easy pedaling and climbing, too. If you forgot how much fun riding is, one ride on the Verve, and you'll never forget.

    I replaced 20+ year old Trek 820---generally the same bike with addition of the shock pistons in the saddle and the fork. So far, so good for this gentleman rider who values comfort over speed. jss

    Nice bike; terrible seat

    Pros

    • Ride Brakes Shifting

    Cons

    • Seat Very Uncomfortable

    Best Uses

    Comments:

    Bike is used to get exercise on an every other day basis. Bought this because it is the replacement for Trek 7300 which I love but have taken to my cabin for the summer. Everything is great except the seat which is extremely uncomfortable after about 15 nminutes of riding. My older Trek has a very comfortable seat. i had to spend $50 to get a replacement seat. This should never happen with a Trek bike and is a big negative.

    Comments:

    The only flaw is, and I read in a previous review, in a certain gear sounds link a brake rubbing but it is not. Will have checked at first tune-up. Will be buying a second Verve for wife. Most comfortable grip ever.

      I bought my first road bike 35years ago. My first Trek in 2004 great bike never had any problems loved to ride that bike. Now years later I'm looking for more of an upright ride. I rode another brand hybrid. The trek hybrid, and "I can't explain why "the trek felt better to me than any other bike. Still something was missing. After riding the Versa AHAAA. the dual sport is what I'm enjoying. Hitting the trails 4days week and loving it!

        I find the bike very comfortable and solid. I was worried because I weigh over 300 lbs and the bike is so light, I figured I might have some problems. It's been great.
