Trek 7000

The Trek 7000 is an affordable, versatile, aluminum frame bike. You can use it for commuting, exercising, trailing riding, or any type of cycling you choose.

The bike is lightweight, so you can easily carry it upstairs if you need to.

The paint job looks good.

The Trek 7000 has a suspension seatpost, which dulls the bumps on the road.

The saddle is uncomfortable. You can sort this problem by getting a better seat.

The Trek 7000 is sold with limited color options.

The Trek 7000 is a hybrid bike. A hybrid bike has the features of a road and mountain bike. These features make it possible for you to use the bike both on and off-road. But if you decide to use the Trek 7000 off-road stick to non-technical gravel roads and dirt paths. If you try technical terrain, you'll have difficulty controlling the bike.

Trek has been manufacturing this bicycle since 1993 and has been releasing a newer version of the bike almost every year since. All the Trek 7000 bikes have an aluminum frame. The last version of the bike released has an Alpha Silver aluminum frame, high-tensile steel fork, Tektro linear-pull brakes, Shimano drivetrain, Alloy adjustable suspension seatpost, and a Bontrager Boulevard saddle.

The bike is available in sizes 15", 17.5", 20", and 22.5".

  • The lightweight aluminum frame also makes it easier to ride this bike.
  • The gears on this bike shift easily and quickly, making riding up or downhill an absolute joy.
  • The bike's geometry is designed to keep you in a comfortable upright riding position. You, therefore, don't have to bend your back to reach the handlebar.

  • The Bontrager Boulevard saddle may give you a sore butt, consider changing this seat if you find it uncomfortable. The right saddle, together with the Alloy, adjustable suspension seatpost will make riding this bike so comfortable.
