Trek 3500 (2014)

This is my first mountain bike, and it has been fully upgraded with better components than what it was sold with. Only the Bontrager SSR seatpost, the crankset and the fork are original. The 48/38/28 chainring / crankset puts this bike in hybrid bike territory, making it able to climb cat 1 mountains and ride flat terrain fairly fast. I have ridden over 1000km and did my only Strava KOM on it. The Bontrager 26" wheelset and seatpost clamp, Shimano hydraulic brakes, Alivio gear levers, rear derailleur and Profile Design handlebars come all from my 2013 Trek 4500 bicycle which I purchased used after i had this bike.

Thank you, Yes, the geometry of this frame is very relaxed. It took me a while to get accustomed to my current bike (2013 Trek 4500), which is slightly bigger and has a longer top tube.
