Comments:

This is a good all-round bike for me. The lockout on the forks are useful for only using on the road; it really sitffens the bike up. The only thing I don't like are the brakes. When I pull the front lever, I want to stop, not slowly come to a stop.

    I've had this bike for a little over a year. I bought it to commute to work and it has worked out very well. The tires are not the best quality and get very unstable when cornering fast or on slightly loose trails.

      Overall, I love this bike. This is my first Trek bike and I absolutely love it! For being a dual sport, it is fast, light weight (for being a hybrid), agile and durable. I currently ride approximately 20 miles a day on a combination of paved road and packed dirt trails. This bike handles exceptionally well. If you are in the market for a hybrid, I would HIGHLY recommend the 8.3DS!

          bought this bike from local dealer who supports many ride/run events in our area was pleasantly suprised at how much fun it was to return to cycling and give my feet a rest from the pounding of running as my main means of fitness.I havent had this much fun since racing bmx as a kid some 35 years ago. Thanx trek for an awesome machine my wife will soon be sporting a matching DS as soon as i can get her fitted on one.

          Comments:

          I bought this bike for my first cross country tour. I bought it new in Washington D.C and rode it down to Jacksonville, FL and then to Los Angeles, CA, between 4300 - 4500 miles in 45 days and weather ranging from winter with snow - rain - desert and painful uphills. The bike itself is still in good condition. Just a few scratches! Although, I did have to change the pedals and the entire back wheel. I did carry some weight on the back and eventually broke 6 spokes + the rest were bent outwards. I do realise that this bike is not built for touring, so can't really blame the company! I did not use bike pants during my whole trip and was suprised of how comfortable the seat was! Would definently recommend this bike, but if you are touring, get a new chain and wheels from the start to avoid flats and breakdowns! Thank you TREK for making this awesome bike!

            Comments:

            Mongoose Vanish gears not shifting right, end result bought a new 8.3 DS. The Trek 8.3 Dual Sport is a very nice upgrade from a Mongoose Vanish. The Trek 8.3 Dual Sport feels lighter than and glides much better than my mountain bike. The mountain bike just had more drag and resistance to rolling. The mountain bike is a more road adsorbing ride; but the glide I get from the Dual sport is worth the feeling the road more, by far. I will always ride my bike off the pavement, over broken sidewalks and exposed roots, on dirt trails and through water and mud puddles. Mountain bike is better; but the Dual sport does this just fine for the amount and magnitude I brutalize bikes. Some live in a binary world, yes-no, right-wrong, roadbike-mountain-bike. For the analog people there are point in between and a nice Trek Dual Sport bike.
