Strengths:    Frame

Weaknesses:    Wheels
Rear Derailleur
Fork (no lock out)


Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike as my first MTN bike ever. It lasted me about 4 rides before I broke the rear wheel half a mile into a trail ride. After that was replaced I did crash once and my rear derailleur hanger bent. I would suggest this bike to someone who is entry level mtn biking and doing easier, less-rocky trails, or even someone who is commuting. I got this bike for around $350 on sale and it was OK. I immediately got the MTN bike bug and got a better bike. However, I'm not done with the trek 3700. I know the frame has more to offer so I plan to ditch the crappy wheels, take off the crappy components and make it a SS.

Strengths:    Durable, light weight, gears shift smoothly, disc brakes are awesome, good stock components, great bike for the price point.

Weaknesses:    The front shock cannot be locked. It has an adjuster, but unless you turn it to its firmest setting you will feel the bike bounce when you climb.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great buy! Very good stock components. I am new to the sport and wanted to get a good beginner to intermediate bike that I could grow into without overspending. So far, I have been impressed with the overall quality of the bike. The components are great. The disc brakes work great, gears shift smoothly, it climbs well, and can be used on the road as well as the trails. I use the bike primarily for mountain biking, but I also strap on a baby seat and take my 2 year old daughter with me on rides.

I ride the trails with guys that have spent 4 to 5 times more on their bikes and have way more experience than I do, but I feel the 3700 disc allows me to keep up with them without a problem.

2013 Trek 3700 Disc - Some pictures

I called my local dealer when I had my eyes set on a Trek 3500 Disc, but after talking to him for a little I ended up going up a model because they had extended a sale for $50 off. I'm happy I did, the guy told me I'd be happier with the few step-up components found in the 3700 over the 3500. Anywa ... Read More »
