2011 Trek 4300 Disc

Trek's 4300 Disc is perfect for getting into mountain biking, cruising around town, commuting, running errands and everything else! 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 saddle and super-versatile tires on dependable rims. Plus, to really keep your speed in check, you've got powerful ProMax disc brakes too.

  • Poor Tires
  • Uncomfortable Seat

Best Uses

  • Single Track

Comments:

Ride cross country and single track 1-2 times a week. The tires are a weak spot unless you are doing urban riding. They are useless if you ride in loose conditions. The preload on the fork doesn't seem to actually adjust anything and is too high for most riders. The seat is terrible. I replace the tires with some aggressive Kendas, the seat, and found a Fox Float 32 on clearance and it's a new bike. Comfortable, capable, and smooth.

I use this bike for everyday use it is the best bike I have ever had.it handels very well,it's very responsive and is light weight.the only bad thing about it is when it gets cold the wheels don't like to spin easley at all,and the rims that come standard are not so great for rough city use.I recommend replaceing them with a more ruggid set of rims

    I bought this bike in 2009, I love it. I was just getting into cycling again after a number of years off. I wanted a "cheap" bike so I bought it from the local box store. What a mistake, after returning it a number of times, I got my money back and bought this bad boy. I havn't looked back since. I ride this bike like it was stolen, I have went over the bars a few times, flipped backwards a few times, Nothing was damaged on the bike, just me. I would say to any rider, buy a TREK, great brand, great bikes. My only compliant was the seat. Very uncomfortable, and the glue started to leat the leather seperate from the plastic seat. I brought it back to my local shop, no questions asked, They pulled a brand new one off the self, ripped it out of the package and put it on my bike. It is great experience when you ave a great shop, and bike. Thanks Trek Thanks Northern Cycle.

      I bought mine on the first weekend of Jun 2010. As of 25 Mar 2011, I have 1560 miles on the bike. I rode right through a Chicago winter with Nokian Extreme 294's and have never had a problem. I got used to the seat and it is not a problem. I have to mention that I ride with Castelli Legrezza winter bibtights with chamios taht are comfortable. I am still new to MTB although I am now at a level where I yearn for premium components. I will use this ride as my commuter/winter bike and will invest the serious cash into an Elite 9.9 ssl. My goal is to get involved in XC racing. I am not worried that someone is going to start to lift components off the 4300 disc when it is locked up and this is the greatest benefit to me. Great support from the staff over at Village Cycle Sport in Elk Grove Village, IL.

        I ride at least five miles a day commuting to work on desert trails and asphalt. Handles great and transitions surfaces like a champ. I also hit trails in the desert hills and the bike never falters. Great for beginners!
