Product Details

2013 Trek 820

Trek's 820 is a great all-around mountain bike with in-town utility at a sweet price. It rolls on a great-riding steel frame with a relaxed, upright position you'll love. Up front, a bump-busting suspension fork smooths the road and trail. Plus, it sports a quick-shifting, easy-pedaling 21-speed Shimano drivetrain, powerful linear-pull brakes and quality Bontrager components.

      SHOCKLESS REAR SUSPENSION

      from Chandler AZ

      About Me Casual/ Recreational

      Pros

      • Durable
      • Lightweight

      • Poor Tires
      • Uncomfortable Seat

      Best Uses

      • Urban Riding

      Comments:

      For the money I paid it lacks springing action in rear wheel travel and since I use it for cardiovascular exercise and conditioning it lacks suspension travel in the rear wheel which makes it uncomfortable when sitting and hitting road or path irregularities. Much easier to maintain speed against head against light to medium head winds.

      Take the seat off and all the trash on the handle bars and add a simple breaking device, and you have a decent bike. like the tires and rims, bent the rear rim TWICE and was able too true it alll by my-self. joey

        Comments:

        I bought this bike for my 9yo son to transition from a kids 24" boxstore MTB bike to his first 26" MTB. We got him a 13" frame. We ride single track together and he's loving it! He loves the 26" wheels and the feel of the 13" frame! He's faster and more confident on the trails! It shifts smoothly and handles well! I can't think of a better bike for him to transition to!! He's riding with the big boys now!

          I love this bike. Great smooth ride. I need to get it in to get it adjusted. The chain keeps coming off when switching to the larger sprocket. Other than that it's an awesome bike. Comfortable seat and position. Would definitely recommend it.

          THIS IS A GREAT BIKE FOR BEGINNER RIDERS. THE SEAT IS UNCOMFORTABLE AT FIRST, TAKES SOME GETTING USED TO. CAN ALWAYS BUY A NEW SEAT OR BIKER SHORTS :)
