Description

Trek's Verve 3 is a super-plush ride no matter where you choose to roam thanks to an easy-pedaling aluminum frame and a suspension fork that smooths any road or path. Sublime comfort comes in the form of a relaxed, easy-on-the-back riding position and adjustable stem with wide handlebars. Plus, you'll love the cushy Bontrager seat and suspension seatpost that makes the bumps disappear. In addition to being comfortable, the 24 gears provide easy pedaling and climbing, too. If you forgot how much fun riding is, one ride on the Verve, and you'll never forget.

Nice bike; terrible seat

Pros:
Ride Brakes Shifting
Cons:
Seat Very Uncomfortable
Best Uses:
Commuting/City
Bike is used to get exercise on an every other day basis. Bought this because it is the replacement for Trek 7300 which I love but have taken to my cabin for the summer. Everything is great except the seat which is extremely uncomfortable after about 15 nminutes of riding. My older Trek has a very comfortable seat. i had to spend $50 to get a replacement seat. This should never happen with a Trek bike and is a big negative.
