Trek's Neko S WSD is a go-anywhere bike! It's road-bike fast, bike-path capable and fun everywhere. The Neko S sports a spry aluminum frame modeled after 29-inch mountain bikes with 700c wheels and multi-surface tires for a ride that is efficient on pavement and confident on dirt. Got a shortcut on your commute? Wanna hit that trail around the lake? No problem, you've got a suspension fork up front to smooth the bumps. Big hills in your path? That's easy, charge on with 24 speeds of smooth Shimano shifting for the way up and Tektro linear-pull brakes for commanding power on the way down.

Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert in bikes.I just bought my Trek Neko S a couple days ago and I love it! My husband and I made the mistake of buying our first bikes from a mass retailer and when we realized we really enjoyed biking, we decided to get better bikes. I can definitely tell the difference between this bike and my 24" x-mart mountain bike. The Trek Neko S has larger diameter tires and really smooth gear shifters that make pedaling seem effortless. I can go on for miles and miles. This is in stark contrast to my other bike; 2 miles, and I'm exhausted!I usually bike on paved roads in our apartment complex and around the area where I work. I have not dared to take my bike to the mountain trails yet but I did do a little bit of off-roading and I did notice that the bike did struggle a bit over rocks so that is something to keep in mind.
I wanted a bike with speed on the road and also one that could handle a little off road riding. This bike has everything I wanted. I can keep up with road bikes and not have to change bikes when I want to get off the pavement.
I wanted a bike to ride around all the great bike trails and paths around town. Often I would see road bikers off their bikes, due to road conditions, and comfort bikes that seemed to take too much effort. I did some research and it seemed the Trek Neko S would be the perfect fit for me. I can go as fast as I need to and can ride over grass and dirt/rocks easily. It's a nice hybird and so far I have no complaints.
