Trek's Verve series reaches its pinnacle with the Verve 3.
With lighter overall weight than previous versions, the Verve 3 adds a dash of performance to a bike that is all about being comfortable. Built from strong and lightweight Alpha Gold series aluminum, the Verve 3's frame provides a stable chassis for trips to the park or dinner on the town. An upright frame fit gets a boost with an adjustable-angle stem, helping to put the handlebars in just the right place. With an adjustable suspension seatpost and padded Bontrager cruiser-style saddle, the Verve 3 delivers in the comfort department! With 700c alloy wheels and 45mm-wide Bontrager H5 semi-treaded tires, the Verve 3 handles bumpy pavement and gravel easily. Trek chose Shimano 9-speed shifters and derailleurs for fingertip operation, and a wide-range Shimano 46/30T alloy crankset for hilly days. A 9-speed 11-36T Shimano cassette provides small and easy jumps between each gear for precise shifting.
The Verve 3 features Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, delivering confident stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. Tubeless-ready alloy wheels are wrapped with Bontrager's durable H5 Hard-Case Ultimate tires in a plush 700x45c size. The low-profile tread is easy to roll down trails and lanes, while still offering excellent grip on unpaved surfaces.
With rack and fender mounts, the Verve 3 is an excellent choice for commutes and trips to the farmer's market. There's even a mount on the stem for lights for nighttime riding!
