    Great bike! Already have a Diamondback Topanga, but the Trek Ske caught my eye. So I bought the Trek. Love love love the Skye. Trek has the best warranty in the industry. I did my homework before purchasing. No regrets. I ride on the street and its such a pleasure. Riding is fun on the Trek. The shop was knowledgeable and never pushy. The size 19.5 is perfect, I am 5'6" and the shop adjusted the seat for the perfect fit. Comfortable, fun ride!

      I haven't ridden in 10 years and found it lightweight, easy, good control, good posture for a mature female rider, comfortable seat, love the colour! Recommend it to other ladies wanting to get in shape and enjoy riding on and off road.

        This is my first bike after many year of not having one and I have to say this is one of the best bikes! I had used my friends bikes before, but my new Trek this one doesn't compare to any cheap bikes out there. Money well spent.

            We bought the 13" for our 9 year old daughter. She is taller for her age so we had to go to a bigger bike. This is an amazing bike. She absolutley loves it. It is easy for her to shift gears and handle. Recommend to anyone!

            Loves this bike! Great ride, very smooth. The water bottle holder did pose a problem. However, overall it is a terrific bike. Would recommend to other.

              This is just what I am looking for. I purchased a 1994 Boulder and it was removed from my property unfortunately. I enjoyed riding the Boulder very much. Used the bike on three 100-mile NBW rides. I really miss it.

                I have been riding this bike between 10 - 15 miles per day and it is a dream. Easy to handle and even pulled my 45 & 32 lb. boys in a bike trailer behind me with no problem. Would highly recommend!

                About Trek Bicycle Store: I would like to thank the Trek bicycle store for their help. They are nice and very helpful people.. I enjoyed my experience with them and will definitely buy my next bike from them again. About the bike: I bought this bike for my wife so that we can go ride together. The first time I saw this bike, I could not believe the price tag was that low considering all the features and components quality this bike has. This bike is not only beautiful and light, but it is very strong and well built as well ! Bottomline, I will not repeat all the features/components this bike has as it is very well described on this website, but I will end this review telling you that this bike is worth every penny ! I will definitely recommend this bike to anyone wanting to enjoy a smooth ride on a sturdy bike that has it all !
