Trek 4500 Disc

When it is time to leave the tarmac behind and kick up hunks of mud on off road trails, then a mountain bike is the only choice. You can spend very little to get a very basic bike but the Trek 4500 Disc is a far cry from the generic options. It offers excellent handling, hydraulic disc brakes for speed control and a long lasting design, which will not fall apart after a few gruelling trips into the wild. Of course you need to learn a little more about a bike before you commit to a sale, so let us look closely at what this model has to offer.

This bike uses a hardtail set up so its aluminium frame is rigid at the rear but has suspension on the front fork from Suntour with 100mm of travel. This is a great compromise, as it will not sap your speed when you want to accelerate but it will soften the impacts that are inevitable if you go off the beaten path. Shimano components provide a nine speed gear set up and Bontrager contributes with good, gripping tyres and sturdy rims.

You can pick between either a red or grey version of the Trek 4500 Disc, with the former looking bright and alluring whilst the latter is more classically and subtly styled. Both perform and behave in the same way so use your own taste to make a decision.
