    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!

      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.

          This bike was a 70th birthday gift. I wanted to upgrade from my Edgewood Diamondback( a retirement gift to myself) I went to a regular bike store and got properly fitted, told salesperson how I rode and where. I could hardly wait to try it and I was not disappointed. everything works so well on it. A wonderful upgrade for me, love it.

            Comments:

            I bought this bike a month ago primarily for exercise. Used it this weekend on a "pub pedal" with friends, riding approx. ten miles. This is a great value for the money! Steep hills are no problem, on or off paved surfaces. Handles very well under all situations. Very efficient gearing will give you maximum drive for very little effort. During our pub pedal, I started off lollygagging in the back, chatting with newbies like myself. Very easy to ride and pedal. As the day progressed, I started to "push" the bike more to see what I could get out of it. It did not disappoint. I was able to ride with the big boys with little effort on my part. On one long stretch "I opened it up" and pushed it as hard as I could...this bike can cruise! Later, I followed a buddy briefly off-road, up and down some grassy hills. Again this bike did not fail. I haven't really tried any serious off-road stuff yet...can't really claim how it will compare to a true mountain bike for long periods of time over rough terrain. I certainly would not be afraid to try it, though! I just love this bike! Versatile...very efficient gears...handles great. When I stop riding, I can't wait to get back on it.
