The Trek Bicycle Series 4 is a solid bike with light weight frame, 21 speed , easy shifting , and nice shocks.
Trek’s 4300 is perfect for riders just starting out in mountain biking and for cruising around town, commuting and running errands. Its Trek Black Series aluminum frame feels light enough to float yet is built plenty tough to hold its own in the durability department. Plus, this sweet ride boasts a 100mm-travel Spinner suspension fork for comfort and control, an easy-pedaling 24-speed Shimano drivetrain, a plush seat and super-versatile tires on dependable rims.
It’s a good bike for the most part. We recommend this bike for anyone starting out in the sport who are unsure of whether or not they want to continue it. This bike will get you out on the trail, but if you like it enough to ride it several times a week, the components will not withstand the abuse.
