Trek 6700

The Trek 6700 is a particularly capable mountain bike that sits comfortably alongside much more expensive alternatives in terms of performance. You get hydraulic disc brakes, a Rock Shox front fork, Shimano components and Bontrager tyres. This is all pulled together by the aluminium frame, which is built to be light and sturdy. There is a lot of competition in this segment of the market and given that this is a bike designed for serious riders, it has a lot to prove. So, let us take a tour of its features and discern whether or not it might be worth a look.

The hardtail set up, which has a fork that provides 100mm of travel and a stiff rear end, gives you a good balance between straight line speed and handling whilst also making sure that bumps and jumps do not disrupt your flow in competitive situations. The Trek 6700 is a mountain bike that will appeal to enthusiasts as well as those who are looking for a fun runaround, although its price may put off the more casual consumers. The money is well spent, with Avid Elixir brakes helping to give you extra control over the bike when you head off road.

The Trek 6700 looks good on any terrain with its white, grey and black frame. Big black tyres and black rims work well together to give it a purposeful look and it will not be mistaken for any other type of bike when you are out and about.
