Product Details

2014 Trek Verve 3

Trek's Verve 3 is a super-plush ride no matter where you choose to roam thanks to an easy-pedaling aluminum frame and a suspension fork that smooths any road or path. Sublime comfort comes in the form of a relaxed, easy-on-the-back riding position and adjustable stem with wide handlebars. Plus, you'll love the cushy Bontrager seat and suspension seatpost that makes the bumps disappear. In addition to being comfortable, the 24 gears provide easy pedaling and climbing, too. If you forgot how much fun riding is, one ride on the Verve, and you'll never forget.

    Just love this bike. Perfect size and fit for a good workout ride. Getting excited for mor warmer weather so we can ride more. I recommend this bike for the biker who wants comfort, light weight, and durability. The store fitted us with the right size and style for what we do.

      Comments:

      I am a recreational rider and I sometimes use it for commuting. The gear system is very smooth swiitching from gear to gear. The seat has a shock system that really provides a really smooth and comfortable ride. There is lots of room for all sorts of assorcories. The handlebars are adjustable for a customized fit for ultimate comfort and the grips are ergonomically designed for extreme comfort and safety. Since the front fork has shock aborbers, the rider can ride on off road tails, but I would not recommend go mountain biking with this bicycle. I do not believe that the system/s can handle the stresses. The Verve 3 is an excellent "all around" bicycle and worth every penny.

      Comments:

      I've put over 4000 miles in a year of riding in Michigan and Florida. I had to have the rear wheel respoked with heaver duty spokes (I weigh 280 lbs) and I've replaced the chain & cassette. At 65 it took a while but I now ride 20 to 40 miles a day 3 to 4 times a week. I've probably shifter 40,000 times and it still shifts every time I click it up or down. My average ride is about 12 MPH so I'm more concerned with comfort than speed. I like the stability of the wider tires & love the wider handgrips.

        Comments:

        This is my second Verve model purchased within three weeks. I originally bought a Verve 2 and liked everything about it except for the effort and detent feel of the twist-grip shifters. My dealer offered to exchange it for a Verve 3 with trigger style Shimano shifters. The shifters are fast, low-effort, and very precise, engaging all 24 gear combinations perfectly. Compared to the Verve 2, this model also has an upgraded drivetrain, seat, and rims. My wife has also ridden the bike and I think we'll probably be getting one for her soon. We're in our mid-60's and are making the switch from traditional mountain bikes to the much more comfortable and age-appropriate Verve hybrids.

          Comments:

          Rode a dual suspension mountain bike for 15 years. After back surgery last year my surgeon told me to get back on my bike. Had to dump the mountain bike because of the geometry. The riding position on the Verve 3 is perfect for getting a great ride without stressing neck, lower back and wrists. Did I mention, the bike if beautiful, too!

            At age 64 (wife 63), we decided to make a lifestyle choice for retirement years and bought two Verve 3's. In two weeks, we've done over 80 miles of trail riding. Can't believe how smooth and easy the bike is to ride! Looked briefly at bikes at a few large retailers, but decided you get what you pay for. We considered the Verve 2, but felt the ergonomic handles, harder tires and better gear set was worth the extra bucks. They're better than we expected, and we plan to rde these beauties for many years. We love our Verve 3's!

            I am going to be 60 but I feel like a kid again. I love coming home from a day at work to get on my bike and enjoy mother nature. It relaxes me and I get good exercise. My blood pressure has actually gone down. I can't say enough good things about my Verve 3. I feel like I could ride all day.
