All the joys of cycling are yours with Trek's 8.4 DS. This go-anywhere machine is road-bike fast, hybrid-bike capable and fun everywhere. The DS sports a spry aluminum frame with 700c Bontrager wheels and multi-surface tires for a ride that is efficient on pavement and confident on dirt. Up front, you have a 63mm-travel suspension fork with an on-the-fly suspension lockout for when you switch terrain. You even have hydraulic disc brakes, so if you're commuting in the rain, or riding with a little mud in the mix, there's the confidence of all-conditions stopping power. Go everywhere and ride it all aboard your DS!
This bike is a work horse. I use it for fitness, light touring and commuting, it can sustain a lot of abuse and is comfortable enough to do century rides on. 3700 road/off-road miles on it so far and I haven't had to replace anything except inner tubes and tires. This bike will help you determine if you love cycling enough to pay thousands of dollars for other bikes.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
