Details

Whether it’s for getting around town, recreation or pure pleasure, Trek's Skye S is the right choice when you want to cruise the pavement or dirt. It boasts a great-riding, lightweight aluminum frame with a ton of standover clearance and a relaxed, upright riding position you'll love, and a bump-busting suspension fork smooths the way. Plus, this versatile ride sports 24 easy-pedaling gears, powerful linear-pull brakes, quality Bontrager components and a comfy women's seat.

Trek's WSD bikes feature women's-specific frames, suspension and components for a wonderful, custom fit and amazing ride. For example, the frames sport short top tubes, tall head tubes, steeper seat-tube angles and decreased head angles. Plus, suspension forks are fine-tuned for light riders. These details ensure top-notch handling, comfort and pedaling efficiency. Complementing the great ride are proportional crankarms, anatomic saddles, narrow handlebars, short-reach controls and small-diameter grips. Take a test ride and experience the WSD difference!

I love cruising and flying through the forest preserves on this bike. Great for a mix of speed and comfort, with exceptional breaks that can stop on a dime. The bike itself is also is very tough and durable. I love it and I would recommend it to avid, mountain, and recreational cyclers.

    Comments:

    I had not been on a bike for several years (as a result of a bike accident when I was a teen). I thought it was about time I needed to get back to riding bikes and joining my husband and four kids on their bike road trips. I walked into the store looking for something that may be reasonable, and perhaps small. I didn't know bikes differ in size (leg length). I had thought it was all based on how high the seat. The salesperson took the time to educate me on correct sizes according to my leg length and height. I found out that the correct bike for me would be one that is actually taller than my husband's bike (I have longer legs even though I may be shorter). I also learned more about how gears work, and the proper way to get on and off. I tried out three different bikes. This one, the Trek Skye S, felt the most comfortable for me. I could sit upright. The handlebars felt good in my hands. It was also easy to maneuver while riding. The only thing that is disconcerting at first is the feel of the gears changing, but I've become used to it and now know what to expect when I shift the gears. In about a week of riding it daily and experimenting on different terrain and shifting the gears, I've become quite comfortable and ready to join my family on a road trip together! :) I'm very happy with my choice in picking this bike.

      I explained to the salesperson that I'm a novice. I asked for an entry level bike that's easy to handle, sturdy, and won't leave me horribly lurched/hunched over while riding. The salesperson showed me the Trek 7200, Trek Navigator 2.0 and the Trek Skye S. I test rode all three. The Skye S seemed more like exercise rather than simple play (a good thing). I could sit rather upright, and the bike seemed incredibly solid under me. It handled sensitively, the brakes were tight and responsive, and I could lift it easily. I've ridden it for hours now. The gears misfired once, but I'm absolutely chalking that up to user malfunction rather than bike malfunction. I am new to this, after all. I've ridden up hills, on gravel, on pavement, on dirt, etc. I really like this bike. I did change out the saddle, as the one it came with hurt a little. One MINOR drawback is that with the WSD, it's hard to install a bottle cage (you can do it, but it has to be a small bottle). Other than that, the salesperson did not steer me wrong on this bike. It's important to go to a reputable store (locally owned and operated is the best). If you're open, honest, and forthright with the salesperson they'll listen to your wants and recommend a bicycle that's best suited to your needs.
