Better bikes make every ride -every mile- more enjoyable! Trek does this with the latest version of the FX 2 now featuring hydraulic disc brakes.
The FX 2 has been a long-running success for us at Machinery Row. Everyone likes the light weight, great handling, long service life and overall versatility of this fan favorite. Trek didn't mess with a good thing for 2020. They kept the lightweight frame, excellent fit and posture, user-friendly features and durability. They added something that has been trickling down from mountain bikes for awhile: Flat-mount disc brakes!
By building the FX 2 Disc around a strong, light Alpha Gold aluminum frame, Trek kept the FX 2 Disc a nimble machine for urban errands, fitness rides, bike path adventures and whatever else crosses your mind. Internal cable routing keeps the FX 2 Disc looking clean and sleek. Mounts for fenders, racks and water bottle cages opens up all sorts of possibilities! For the fitness rider wanting to keep track of ride details, there's an aperture in the left chainstay for an ANT+/Bluetooth DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) that can connect with your smartphone or handlebar computer. Need a place for your Bontrager headlight or RideTime computer? The alloy Bontrager Blendr stem boasts a front-and-center mount for exactly those items! The overall fit of the FX 2 Disc offers a more upright posture, and a cushy Bontrager sport saddle and long-tail Satellite grips make for comfortable touchpoints.
Shimano provides the 8-speed shifters, Acera rear derailleur and Tourney front derailleur, giving the FX 2 Disc precise shifting and long service life. An alloy 48/38/28T crankset and 11-32T Shimano cassette adds a massive gearing range to the FX 2 Disc for steep climbs and long rides. 32-spoke alloy Bontrager Connection wheels are shod with 700x35c Bontrager H2 semi-treaded tires for easy speed and assuring grip. Those aforementioned Tektro disc brakes are hydraulic and add plenty of stopping power in wet or dry conditions. Commute confidently!
Trek's FX 2 for women is better than ever! Looking for a lighter, quicker way around town? Finally replacing that old boat-anchor of a bike? Look no further.
The FX 2 has been improved on since last year's version. A lighter frame built with Trek's exclusive Alpha Gold aluminum gives the FX 2 a quicker feel, and makes steep hills easier. Mounts for a rear rack, fenders and bottle cages make the FX 2 a smart choice for commuting and trips to the farmer's market. There's even an aperture for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) in the left chainstay.
Steep hills with bags of groceries aboard the FX 2 become less challenging with the wide gearing range provided by a 48/38/28T triple crankset and Shimano 11-32T cassette. Shifting is at your fingertips with Shimano 8-speed shifters and derailleurs, while hydraulic Tektro disc brakes help reign in speed in all conditions, rain or shine. Alloy Bontrager Connection wheels are shod with semi-treaded 700x35c Bontrager H2 tires, making every path smoother. A comfy Bontrager Sport Women's saddle, accessory-ready alloy Blendr stem, alloy seatpost, alloy handlebar and long-tail Satellite grips complete this city-ready machine.
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!
