I have a Trek 4300 and wanted something that I could use that was lighter and so I could ride longer distances. I started riding it 5 mi/day, then extended it to 10mi/day and about 15 mi/day over the weekends, in all about 75 - 90 mi/week on paved trails. I think the bike feels good overall, but the gears are terrible. I've taken it to have it adjusted and it did not improve one bit, I had to adapt to make it work. Good buy if you want to ride it for short/intermediate distances (10 - 40 miles), I did get a Selle Royal Respiro Soft Athletic saddle and that makes a huge difference.
