2014 Trek 8.4 DS (Gary Fisher Collection)

Streets and paths, suburbs and woods; return to the simple joys of cycling with Trek's 8.4 DS. This go-anywhere machine is road-bike fast, trail-bike capable and fun everywhere. The DS sports a spry aluminum frame with 700c Bontrager wheels and multi-surface tires for a ride that is efficient on pavement and confident on trails. Up front, you have a 63mm-travel suspension fork with an on-the-fly suspension lockout for when you switch terrain. You even have hydraulic Hayes disc brakes, so if you're commuting in the rain, or riding with a little mud in the mix, you've got the confidence of all-conditions stopping power. Go everywhere and ride it all aboard your DS!

    Great for going from pavement to trail and gravel. Shift great when you need it. Squeaky pedal was disappointing, as well as loose hand grip. Overall great bike. Big speed difference coming from a mountain bike with street tires to this, love it.

      Comments:

      Strengths: Although it looks more like a mountain bike with skinny knobby tires, don't be fooled. The bike is FAST. It will pretty much take anything the road has to offer and doing it smoothly. Other than the knobbies on the road, the bike gets 4.5 outta 5 in my book. Traction was surprisingly very good uphill as well. I don't think I slipped once, unlike my Rigid with the Kenda the SB8's, if I stood up at all to climb, I'd lose traction. I also think the non slippage is due to the larger 700x38 tires. More surface to contact to the ground. Weaknesses: The Suntur fork with 63mm of travel is fine for most mild trail applications. For rock gardens and fast 30+mph down hills, this fork can be pretty uncomfortable. The 63mm of travel bottoms out on really hard hits and with just sitting on the bike, it sags about 30mm so in reality, you are getting only 33mm of travel. The only other weakness is that you are limited to going only a 29x2.0 rear tire and nothing wider or it will have no clearance for the front derailer. That is if you wanna go more hardcore MTBing, then i would recommend get a MTB. Bottom Line: Overall, the 8.4 did its job. Most riders told me I should have just gotten a mountain bike since I ride the mountain at least twice a week, get a purpose-built bike, etc., etc. I think that is just what I have done. Its purpose WAS to do BOTH Road and Mountain. And to test the 8.4 on the Loop is a great indicator of how the DS 8.4 can handle the abuse. The tires held up, but would definitely change them to wider tires if you plan on going mountain biking a lot. Same thing with on-road, if you plan on going faster, more on the road, go with the skinnier slicks. So to conclude my review and thoughts, the Trek DualSport 8.4 delivered. Those Trek Engineers along with Mr. Fisher himself did a great job!

      Comments:

      I wanted a bike for commuting and weekend fitness. This fits the bill! Fast on pavement and paved bike paths, yet handles dirt roads and gravel without fuss. Hated the stock seat, so switched it out for a Brooks B17. Now biking is fun again. I can keep up with friends on road bikes and not worry about wiping out if we hit some chat. The gearing is excellent, with 27 gears climbing hills is no problem, and the disc brakes are great for the downhill side. My only complaint is they didn't have the snazzy white and black paint job. Guess I'm going to be grey until I wear this one out, which I hope is many miles down the road.

          Really like the handle bars on this bike. The palm rest is so nice. I also like being able to adjust whether or not the front shocks are on/off or somewhere in between.
