If It Can Be Reached on Two Wheels, It Can Be Reached On a 2014 Trek 8.2 DS

The 2014 Trek 8.2 Dual Sport Combines Everything You Need in a Bike in One Sleek Package.

Where can you go on a bike? With the 2014 Trek 8.2 DS, the answer is "anywhere". Shimano Altus 7 speed shifters combined with Shimano- model Tourney front derailleur and Altus rear derailleur makes this perfect for the uphill, downhill, stop and go obstacle course of city riding. Bontrager LT1 tires mounted on a Formula FM21 alloy hub in the front, FM31 in the back, keep up top performance long after the sidewalk ends. And with a Bontrager SS1 saddle and two available color schemes, wherever you go on your Trek 8.2 DS, you will go in comfort and style.

The 8.2 DS combines different elements from more specific bike types to give the rider a perfect hybrid bicycle. The sturdy yet lightweight frame gives it the appearance of a mountain bike, and indeed it handles off-road with the best of them. The fork and rear dropouts are both equipped with disc mounts, making for easy modification for someone who wants to get even more all terrain performance out of this bike. The thinner wheels however, resemble a road bike and make for smooth riding on street and sidewalk alike, which is sure to delight the commuter or casual rider, and offers no problems in terms of speed or durability on longer rides. Despite their thinner size, the tires provide plenty of traction, adding to the overall versatile nature of this bike. This combination of strengths makes it a great choice for someone who needs one bike to do it all, or a beginner who still isn't sure where their journey will take them.
