Did Trek do away with the front fork suspension?

I bought the Verve 3 about a month ago and it's beating me to death on bumps. I noticed other Verve 3 bikes have a shock front fork, mine does not. Is it supposed to?

Comfort and performance

About Me

Comments:

I'm a 58 year old and picked this bike because I was looking for a highbred bike. I generally ride 20 miles or less, and like the handling and comfort of this bike. It's a little slow at the top end, but it is a good balance of speed/comfort. I think it's good for someone who is not a super serious biker but wants a good bike. The quality is there.

    Nice suspension, after years of not riding a bike I took to it like a fish to water. Comfortable riding position & hydraulics. The new bikes have much better shifters and brakes.

      Tomorrow (7/8/16) marks the second week since I first rode my new Trek Verve 3. I intended to wait until I put 500 miles on it before a review but I'm so happy with this bike I decided to go ahead after only 215 miles. I'm a 64 year old 250 lb. (hoping to weigh much less soon) man. I've been riding for a few years and try to do at least 20 miles a rides mostly roads and paved/gravel trails. I try to keep a 13 to 15 mph pace. I also use it for trips to the store etc. if practical. I actually picked this bike during a visit to TX when a relative & I went to a bike shop. He also bought a Trek. Returning to SC I immediately went to the Trek of Charleston West Ashley Store and ordered the Verve 3. The ride is better than I could have imagined. A very smooth and comfortable. To date I haven't had any problems with shifting or chain rubbing others have mentioned. As far as the seat is concerned it is very comfortable, although right now not quite as comfy my last seat. With that said it is a nice design and comfortable enough for me to give it a try for a while. For the record this is the first bike I recall where I didn't toss and replace the saddle within a few days. I like the seat design and think my back side will adjust. Everyone has different preferences. Now for the store, service was amazing. The folks at the Trek store of Charleston were great From Ben Gruber Who Advised me about fit and my bike needs. To "OZ" the bike mechanic who assembled and inspected the bike and patiently installed all the add-ons such as fenders, bike computers, and racks all while cheerfully answering my endless questions. And KC (Kevin I think) who made sure I didn't forget anything. All these people were true professionals, informative with absolutely no pressure to buy. I strongly recommend this store for anyone shopping for a bike. Finely I always thought a good Trek was out of my league, unless you spent big $$ you wouldn't get a really good bike. I was surprised to find a really good quality Trek well within my price range.

      Comments:

      I'm 66, weigh 290 and have ridden it 4500 miles in 3 years with no real problems. Original tires wore out in 1500 miles and I had to have rear wheel re-spoked with heavier duty spokes. I've gone thru 2 chains, one cassette, 3 tires and brake shoes. Occasionally I wish it had a lower gear, but not often. I love the front and seat suspension and slightly wider tires than road bikes. I estimate I've shifted over 40,000 times and it still shifts like a charm. Best bike I've ever owned by far.

        Comments:

        First bike I have purchased in over 25 years. Wanted to get back into biking in order to get back in shape. I also wanted to get more active and be outside in the great outdoors. This bike was just what the Dr. ordered. The Verve 3 is such a well built, well equipped, well engineered bike. It is a beautiful bike to say the least. I purchased this bike primarily due to the Front Shocks and Seat Shock. This thing is extremely comfortable. It also shifts as smooth as butter and is extremely quiet. It is no slouch thanks to its large 700c wheels in addition to the Bontrager H5 tires. This thing hauls. First day on the road and I got it up to 22mph. My friends were giving me the business about purchasing a bike. Once they saw it in person, and went for a ride, they opinions instantly changed. I think the Trek store in Naperville, IL. will have additional customers very soon.

        Nice bike; terrible seat

        Best Uses

        Comments:

        Bike is used to get exercise on an every other day basis. Bought this because it is the replacement for Trek 7300 which I love but have taken to my cabin for the summer. Everything is great except the seat which is extremely uncomfortable after about 15 nminutes of riding. My older Trek has a very comfortable seat. i had to spend $50 to get a replacement seat. This should never happen with a Trek bike and is a big negative.
