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.

I'm 66, weigh 290 and have ridden it 4500 miles in 3 years with no real problems. Original tires wore out in 1500 miles and I had to have rear wheel re-spoked with heavier duty spokes. I've gone thru 2 chains, one cassette, 3 tires and brake shoes. Occasionally I wish it had a lower gear, but not often. I love the front and seat suspension and slightly wider tires than road bikes. I estimate I've shifted over 40,000 times and it still shifts like a charm. Best bike I've ever owned by far.
Have had the bike for 3 years and 3900 miles, Original tires only lasted 1000 miles brakes about 1500 Michelin tires on now way lighter and more durable probably another 1000 left, Not one problem with bike ever, I am 61 and it is a awesome road bike for me, not the fastest bike but the suspension and comfort make up for that
First bike I have purchased in over 25 years. Wanted to get back into biking in order to get back in shape. I also wanted to get more active and be outside in the great outdoors. This bike was just what the Dr. ordered. The Verve 3 is such a well built, well equipped, well engineered bike. It is a beautiful bike to say the least. I purchased this bike primarily due to the Front Shocks and Seat Shock. This thing is extremely comfortable. It also shifts as smooth as butter and is extremely quiet. It is no slouch thanks to its large 700c wheels in addition to the Bontrager H5 tires. This thing hauls. First day on the road and I got it up to 22mph. My friends were giving me the business about purchasing a bike. Once they saw it in person, and went for a ride, they opinions instantly changed. I think the Trek store in Naperville, IL. will have additional customers very soon.
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.
