Trek 8000 2011 Mountain Bike

Trek 8000 Overview

The Trek 8000 is a mountain bike that is ready for competitive racing or for recreation. It will handle any surface or slope with vigour and give a good account of itself if you want to test your mettle in competitive circumstances. It is a hardtail bike with a rigid set up and responsive handling. With a good selection of components from major names in the business, it definitely lives up to its price point and whilst it is ostensibly an enthusiast’s choice, it will not be so specialised as to put off those who are just getting serious about cycling.

Trek has endowed the 8000 with an aluminium frame, which has hydroformed tubing. This means that it is rigid and lightweight. The manufacturer has chosen to avoid the bulk, big-tube presence insisted upon by some of its rivals in favour of a slimmer yet equally reassuring design that will definitely meet expectations. The fork gives you 100mm of travel to compensate for the bumps and bruises that would otherwise shoot through you when you take the bike off road. Avid Elixir R hydraulic disc brakes give you fingertip precision when it comes to slowing down and Shimano components add experience to the package.

The Trek 8000 is a suitably seductive bike on the outside, with red lettering overlaying the white and black frame. The workmanship is also of a high class, which means you can put confidence in this cycle at every turn.
