A hybrid bicycle like the Verve should make every mile easy and comfortable. Part of making the ride "easy" is knowing that your brakes will work exactly the way you want. That's where disc brakes come in. Not only are disc brakes brilliant in wet weather, they also make every stop confident and predictable. That's what gives you the peace of mind that lets you enjoy every ride even more.
Disc brakes aren't the only thing going for the Verve 2 Disc. The frame of the bike is built with Trek's own Alpha Gold aluminum, keeping weight low and soaking up fatiguing vibration. The bike's upright fit and long wheelbase add comfort and stability during long rides on pavement both rough and smooth. The alloy stem is also also adjustable, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable. Four sizes make for easy fitting, too. Plans for commuting or rides to the famer's market? The Verve 2 Disc is ready to be practical, thanks to rack and fender mounts.
Shimano provides the 8-speed shifters and derailleurs, making every gear change swift and precise. An alloy 48/38/28T triple crankset and Shimano 11-32T cassette boasts a huge gearing range for steep hills and heavy loads. The Verve 2 Disc is fitted with alloy Bontrager Connection wheels, bringing easy acceleration and light weight. 700x45c Bontrager H5 semi-treaded tires soak up crumbling trails and gravel surfaces with aplomb. A comfy Bontrager Boulevard saddle and adjustable suspension seatpost make potholes almost unnnoticeable.
If the roads are rough or smooth, or the weather is sunny or wet, the Verve 2 Disc is always the right choice!
