Details

Trek's X-Caliber is the way to jump headlong into the world of mountain biking. It sports Trek's nimble Gold Series aluminum frame and a plush 75mm-travel Suntour suspension fork for a light, lively ride and confidence over rocks, roots, potholes—you name it. And that confidence is only helped by the big 29-inch wheels and knobby tires. You'll enjoy easy pedaling and complete control thanks to the quick-shifting 24-speed drivetrain and sure-stopping mechanical-disc brakes. Plus, you'll love the comfy Bontrager seat.

Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.

        my first trek bike was the 4300 really happy about it always wanted to own a trek bike since day one but it got stolen after having it for 3 years with close to 5000 km on it . this is my second trek bike so far I'm happy with the Excalibur with it's 29er wheels looking forward to hit the road and trails more often.

          I visited the Macomb AC&F (Trek store) a month before my purchase and a local bike store closer to me. I rode the Giant Revel (from the local bike store) and the Trek X-Caliber 4 29er. To be honest both bikes were very nice. Granted the test rides were short so it's hard to split hairs between the two bikes. I did my research and I came back to the Trek store because I felt I was able to get a better deal and the staff recognized me from my first visit. I have to admit the X-Caliber was more expensive but a slight upgrade and it was 2014 vs. 2012 or 2013. Either bike would be a big upgrade from my 1987 or so department store bike. The X-Caliber has a nice smooth ride, nice shifting and very light. The Viper red reminds me of a Dodge Viper or some cool sports car.The disc brakes are a nice touch. I'll be using this primarily on a bike path and maybe a beginner dirt trail. If you're a newbie(shopping for a premium bicycle) like me wanting to get back into riding a bike, I highly recommend American Cycle and Fitness-Lakeside or any Trek bicycle dealership.They answered all my questions/concerns and to me that was the deal breaker.

          I got this bike to replace a bike that had gotten stolen from me a week earlier. I was looking for something with disc breaks at the very least and saw this bike at my lbs on sale for 499.99, so I said why not after I heard about its warranty as well. For the price I think its great, and any upgrades I make I'll eventually put on a future frame once I've saved up.

          This is a great bike for the price. I looked around for a 29er but didn't have much to spend and luckily I found this one. it is better then I expected and defiantly would recommend this bike to anyone.
