Weaknesses:    Stock Tires

Bottom Line:   
Got back into mountain biking after too many years of boring road riding. Started with a Specialized Rock Hopper 29er Comp. Thinking the trails I ride aren't all that rough. Well I soon found out that I was missing the ride of my old GT LTS. Guess the trails were rougher than I thought! Long story short, Upgraded the wheels, tires fork and even got a Thud Buster. Guess it all helped but still longed for the old days!
Started shopping around. Looked at all the cheap internet bikes and resisted the temptation to cheep out. Checked out What Specialized and Trek had to offer. Have to admit I suffered a little sticker shock so backed down but the idea was in my head and couldn't get it out. That was this Summer. Fast forward to a month ago and low and behold Trek advertises clearance prices on their 2013 models. Well that's all it took. Bought one the next day. Originally looking at the Elite, never really excited me all that much but when I saw the Pro and read the specs I had to have one and I'm glad I waited.
I Really like the bike. The ride is a good but you still know it's a mountain bike. First thing I noticed was how much better it went around the corners. and how I don't avoid every little root and rock that comes along. Have to say that Fox fork rides a lot better than the Reba I put on my Rock Hopper, even with enough pressure to keep it from bottoming out. One of the main reason I opted for the Pro was the full XT kit,15mm thru front axle and 12 x 142 rear axle along with the 2 x 10.
Shifting is spot on and crisp. Can't say enough about the brakes, flawless! Feel more secure with the modern axles.
Guess the tires are better for areas without rocks because the rear sidewall was cut within the first two weeks. They worked well just not very durable. Not a big issue for me since I had already planned on changing them out. Moved to a Maxxis Ardent in the front and a Ignightor in the rear. Oh yeah, went tubeless too. Got to say, the old GT has been surpassed as my favorite bike.
I think anyone who likes to ride and not get beat to death would benefit from this bike. The price on sale was good but still pricey if it's going to be a coat rack so if you're not going to ride it.........like that's going to happen once you have ridden it.

2013 Trek Superfly 100 AL Pro headset question

Ok... I have owned the subject bike for about 6 months. I really like the way it climbs... but the front end has never seemed to be just right for me. I have come to the conclusion that the 71 degree head angle is too steep. The bike steers to quickly, it's twitchy, and it is not as stable as oth ... Read More »
