2014 Trek Shift 2

Trek's Shift 2 lets you enjoy scenic streets and fun trails in luxurious comfort. The Shift is perfect for people just getting back into riding: it's incredibly stable, easy to pilot and can handle most any rider. Its relaxed frame design and adjustable stem put you in a back-friendly, upright riding position. The suspension fork, shock-absorbing seatpost and comfort saddle soak up the bumps for a velvety-smooth ride. Plus, the Shift's durable wheels, Bontrager tires and quick-shifting Shimano/SRAM drivetrain guarantee easy, fun and efficient riding every time.

      Comments:

      I have always loved riding bike, 20 years ago I suffered a wrist injury which cause servere pain riding a road bike. With the Shift 2, I set up straighter, which places less pressure on the wrists, and I have almost no pain.

          Knee problems & tibia bone tumor pain had stopped me from bicycling. The hybrid, due to its design allowed me to ride again without the pain. Very pleased with bicycle. This was a passion of mine earlier in life which I thought I would have to forever give up. Thanks Trek!

                This is my first bike since living in a very unsafe area with narrow, high-pitched, busy roads. Great to be back in the saddle feeling confident and adventurous.

                from a Harley to attract great move

                Comments:

                I'm 66 was riding a Harley for the last 20 years recently moved to Florida which has numerous wonderful bike trails. I started on an old used huffy went to the Trek dealer who allowed me toride several types and I was hoping to not notice a big difference to the Huffy that I had..Well there was a huge difference the adage you get what you pay for. The Trek bike is all quality. I started down 1 mile then 5 miles then 10.now I'm up to 25 but I know for real bikers that's nothing but for me it's been huge. you end up going places you would normally not, see things you normally would not see so it's been a blast and I recommended highly

                I have only been able to ride a few times since I bought the bike but have put on about 20 miles. The bike is great for my purpose and I can't wait gor warmer weather so I can ride more.
