[VIDEO REVIEW] 2014 Trek Dual Sport 8.3

The Bike That Does It All!



Lloyd from Bumstead's Bicycles in Ontario, CA brings you a review of one of Trek's most versatile bikes: the 2014 Dual Sport 8.3.

This model has a lightweight aluminum frame. One of the things you will notice is that Trek has spent a lot of time doing hydroformed tubing. The tubes are not round, they are custom shaped in order to be as light and strong as possible. They also have designed the tubes to give you the best strength to weight ratio.

Because it is a dual sport bike, it has front suspension for the possible light trails you may encounter on weekends with your buddies, as well as the potholes and broken sidewalks you will definitely see in the city. If you are on nicely paved roads and don't need the suspension, there is a very simple lockout lever located on the fork. Trek also put disc brakes on the Dual Sport bikes this year, which are much better in wet or muddy conditions.

Shimano Acera 8-speed rear derailleur, with rapid fire shifters which are going to last and are just right for most riders. Shimano's crank also includes a slight chain-guard to protect your clothing or legs from chain grease.

If you're looking for a bike to do a little bit of everything, this is the best one you could possibly get.

Come in to Bumstead's Bicycles today to take a test ride! We'll be seeing you!
