Rider questions

Q: what is retail new for this bike
A: This bike isn't made anymore. The closest thing today would be the Marlin line which retails between $490 and $710, depending on component spec. If you're considering this bike, also have a look at our budget hardtail buyer's guide: http://www.singletracks.com/blog/mtb-gear/buyers-guide-budget-hardtail-mountain-bikes/ Trek does still produce the 820 which is their entry-level bike, priced at $370. Trek claims their 3-series mountain bikes are (were?) the world's best selling mountain bike. Surprising to see they don't sell them anymore in the USA. http://www.trekbikes.com/int/en/bikes/mountain/sport/3_series/

Q: Wheel size is irrelevent. Google "Trek Bicycle Sizing" and it will prob say a Med/ 15-17inch frame is what you want.

    Great bike for the money, easy to thrash and not worry about breaking it and costing a bunch of money in repairs

    Pros
    Bang for the buck, price

    Cons
    Entry level equipment

    - This bike is worth putting money into for upgrades.

    Pros
    - This is a lightweight bike
    - A decent component group for the price
    - A few small upgrades can turn this mid level bike into a sweet whip!

    This bike is an amazing deal especially now that it comes with discs (which i dont) have i have the 08 model and its still holding up going to upgrade soon because freeriding and dirt jumps are murdering it but if you were to actually use it for what its made for (light trail riding) you will have a very good time

    Pros
    Frame durability and ver versatile

    Cons
    Brake pads melt fork travel is only 50mm (100mm on the current model) and the drivetrain isnt too great also you will have many a bent QR if you like dirt jumps

    Great first bike, only problems are that I stripped the rear gear cassette off the rim and it needs a tune up every 3 months or so cause I ride it hard

    Pros
    Solid frame, brakes,

    Cons
    Rear derailer, wheels

    I bought the disk brake model for 498 and i feel the upgrade is worth it if you can afford it. I totally recomnend this bike i ride it hard and I have not problems with it. great bike

    Pros
    Good solid frame and gear change. Disk brakes stop it easly and quickly.

    Cons
    Paint on rear bar under chain is chipping a little but not from chashes

    Pros
    one tough bike, very solid construction, all 7 gears work great, break are good

    Cons
    Stem is to high, needs more gears. rear derailleur looses tune fast.

    I have the '05 3700. This was my first MTN Bike. I have taken it all over Colorado. I'm a light rider and this bike is more than capable for my needs. Its not a jumper, but it can handle some fairly technical trails. I have since replaced the drive train and fork. For the money, its an awesome bike.
    Happy Trails

    Pros
    Good all around. Modest fork, Solid frame.

    This is my first bike and am very excited. Before I went out and spent the big bucks I wanted to make sure this is what I wanted to do. Yes there are a lot of better and much more expensive bikes than this but for the money it does the job. Took it on my first trail yesterday and had a blast. Breaks and gears worked great and the handling was awesome. Highly recommend for the weekend warrior or someone just starting out.

    Cons
    N/A
