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

    By Jim

    from Chandler AZ

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Lightweight
    • Handles Well

    Cons

    • Uncomfortable Seat
    • Poor Tires

    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.

      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.

          I really enjoy this bike, I do cross country trips between 25-30 miles on it. The seating position is upright which makes it more comfortable than the aggressive position a road bike provides.
