TREK FX I 2020 HYBRID BIKE Review

Being a hybrid bike you are sure of getting the best of all kinds of bikesbikes in this beautiful piece of machinery. Whether you just want to go on a casual ride, burn some calories, or simply commute to your destination, the Trek FX I 2020 Hybrid Bike is a versatile bike that will serve you well. And that’s not just it: this bike is backed by a lifetime warranty and throws in some great specs to boot. It simply tells how much value and confidence the brand has placed on the rider and the design of this bike.

Great Alpha Gold Aluminium Frame

It’s lightweight Alpha Gold Aluminum frame and 21-speed shifting makes the bike handling so beautifully and confidently without the risk of nicking the bike in any form. Embedded into the end this frame is strong wheels built on double-walled rims that give the bike its agility.  Its mount also provides the opportunity to easily accessorize one’s ride with ride essentials like fenders, racks, fitness trackers, lights, a kickstand, etc 

DuoTrap S compatible

As a fitness bike, you may want to track your fitness progress every second of each ride. Trek FX I 2020 Hybrid bike has got DuoTrap S that integrates a Bluetooth/ANT+ sensor into the frame. No—you don’t need an external sensor to track your fitness progress or log routes on your smartphone or a bicycle computer. And it also doesn’t matter if you’re using Bontrager, Garmin, PowerTap or SRM ANT+ wireless player—it will work.

Bontrager H2 700 x 35c Tyres

The smooth Bontrager H2 700 X 35c tires allows you to have enough control and rollover different kinds of surfaces irrespective of the weather condition. It has great traction, efficiency, and threading that makes the tire almost puncture free.

High-tensile Steel Fork

By mere looking at this bike, you would think the fork blades in front are actually aluminum, but in fact, they are steel. They do run a flat mount disc connection as well as a ThruSkew that threads in and out. This gives a little more support to the end of the bike but, most importantly, it’s going to make it much easier to install and remove the wheels on this bike.
