If you are looking for a bike that is a great combination between a road bike and an off-road bike, the Trek 7100 is a good choice. This hybrid bike is suited to absorbing impacts and enables performance at maximum velocity because of the Alpha aluminum frameset. It comes with a well-defined suspension fork to absorb all-terrain riding shocks. The braking system is also great, providing sufficient stopping power.

The light frame enables a biker to glide smoothly over road bumps and rough terrain at optimal acceleration. The lightweight frame responds swiftly to the body movements of the biker as the bodyweight is distributed well across the length of the bike. 

Wide all-terrain tires 

The Trek 7100 hybrid bike is rightfully so because of its wide, thick tires. The width and thickness of the tires help to keep a rider stable and maintain body balance. This is because they provide firm surface grip regardless of the terrain been encountered. To complement the tires, this hybrid bike comes with ergonomic handgrips and an adjustable handlebar to give the rider more control and great bike handling.
