I bought this bike with last years tax refund to replace my 2008 Trek 4300(non-disc) that got stolen from me. Nice bike and its pretty quick for being on the lower end of the lineup. Its rides wonderfully too. The fork on it is blah though. I h ad to do some adjusting on the bottom bracket and the cables about a month after getting it. Its been ducky for me ever since. Its a nice off road bike too, but sometimes on steep climbs it likes to pull the front wheel up on me(and thats with me trying to get all of myself over the handlebars too). Overall worth the price and it is a very nice entry level bike. Oh, yeah, best part of the ordeal is about 2 months after i got it my old Trek 4300 was recovered.
