        I'm a 60 year old woman who originally had a mountain bike for many years that I loved. Had to trade it in for something more upright. Bought a Trek Verve Hybrid but had problems with uncomfortable saddle. Tried everything and couldn't rememdy the situation. Finally bought the Trek 3 and it's perfect. I feel comfortable and secure (safe) because of the fatter tires but don't let that fool you. I'm a long-distance rider and although I don't do as many miles as before, this will still get you from point a to point b in comfort.

          Hey guys I found a solution to the problem with the innertube stems being torn...the rims are great, but they have a flaw right where the tube stem goes...the innertube opening needs to be smoothed out or covered by an xtra rubber spoke guard....thats the giant rubber thingy that goes on the inside of the rim...that little opening can have some really sharp edges...I solved the problem with my dremel tool...i just smoothed out the lil opening and put an xtra rubber ring on the rim...its quite an easy fix with or without the dremel tool...GREAT BIKE I'VE HAD NO PROBLEMS AFTER THE FIX..

              I have my navigator since 2004 and with more than 5000 miles, still in perfect shape. Only replace chain and front cranks. Best Choice. I had a 4900 mountain but zero confort, sold and replace by Navigator.

              • Got flats on pavement

              Comments:

              I had a flat after less than 2 miles my first time out.In a year I had this happen 8 times. Each time it was the stem cut on the rear tire.We put heavy duty tubes on the bike with stop leak.The bike Teck was great each time they fixed the tire with no charge.They tried reaming the stem hole out, they tried every tube available,they bought new rims and tires still within a couple miles my rear tire would cut into the stem and(BAM) my rear tire would blow.There is something faulty on some of these 3.0 Trek Navigaters and if the rear stem causes a flat tire you might as well hang it up and get another bike.I can't explain it scientifically but its a never ending battle that has no cure. My wife has a 2.0 Navigater that I rode most of the time while my bike was in the shop.I actually would lay my bike down and ride my wifes for weeks at a time while waiting to have a reason to hook my trailer up to take down to get my bike fixed.Her bike is over a year old with 100's of miles on it and not one flat ever.I just lost all faith in my bike and got tired of walking it home while my friends went ahead on the ride that I wanted to be on.I would rate my wifes 2.0 Trek Navigater a 5 out of 5 on marks and I imagine mine would score that high if I could have ever ridden it long enough to tell.After 8 times my dealer had me try out a trek pure navigater that I fell in love with. It sits lower and has a more comfortable seat and you can get it in 3, 7 or 21 speed.The tires are a little fatter than the Navigater this is one sweet bike.I would rate it at the highest ranking in all catagories.I hope Shawn at bike teck in Salina gets credit for all the extra work they did replacing eight tubes,two tires,two rims and lots of stop leak.Now they are replacing the bike itself at no extra cost to me.I would rate Shawn the owner of Salina Kansas Bike Teck 5 stars out of 5.

              This is a nice bike overall, it needs a few "Tweaks" right after the purchase. Though the seat looks comfortable, you'll soon find out it's a little stiff and it adds some weight to the overall bike(I changed it out for a better lighter seat). I had a tuff time finding this bike in a "21" frame let alone medium to soft front springs, and ended up with hard fork springs. Cables through the inter lower fame is a "NO-NO" in my opinion, very tough fix on the road if one snaps. The Frame is pretty light-weight, The handlebar style and adjustment range is a plus! dump the bulky seat, ditch the kickstand and buy better tires, be sure to get the soft-medium fork springs and this bike becomes a much nimbler and nice light-Trail/cruiser/commuter bike. I cannot recommend this bike as it needs another $100 in cash to get it ware it needs to be in this cash range.

                I had to write a review after seeing all the talk about flat tires.. I ride this bike 62 miles a day from Boynton Beach to Ft. Lauderdale never had a flat in over a year... Very comfortable bike up hills with ease... would like to refer this bike to anyone, lost over 110 pounds using this bike...

                  I use this bike for recreational activiites. Our bike paths are not well-maintained so a sturdy bike is needed. It was comfortable from the very first ride.

                    I was looking for a minimal impact workout and something more comfortable than my 20 year old mountain bike. After some research, I landed at the Trek store of Mount Pleasant and found all of the answers and bike I needed. I received a great selection and knowledgable staff, which allowed me to try out several sizes and types. The oversized tires, upright riding comfort, smooth components and shocks on the seat and front fork provide for a smooth yet benificial workout. Thanks to Taylor at the Mount Pleasant shop for all of the help. I will have my wife in soon.

                      Have been looking for a new bike, one that would be more comfortable. This one is great. Has a great seat, and many other features that make you want to get on it and go for a ride. I love this bike and will put my car away and ride my bike. Picked it up from a local bike shop in Spearfish, SD RMS. Great store and great staff.
