    Any reports on the Trek Navigator?

    Been thinking of selling my hybrid, which is more like a road bike (Trek Soho) to get a Navigator. Sure, it's heavier, but I think it would be better on my back, and would be better for curb hopping, grass shortcuts, etc.

    I ride on bike paths mostly, and the majority are smooth, but some are rutted from tree roots, etc.

    So, can anyone give me a review on the Trek Navigator?

    Thanks
    I'm two-tired to ride today.

    I ride one, occasionally.

    It's OK as a neighborhood bike. Or, a liesurely roll down the MUP with the grandkids.

    Butttttt, slow and heavy if you are trying to travel far or fast.

    I also find that the more upright seating position bothers my bad back much more than carrying some of my weight on my hands, and being able to arch my back some.

    I much prefer my hybrid Specialized Crosstrail.

    Ditto this for me, except that in my case the preferred bike is a Trek 7.5 fx.

    I've had one for 3 or 4 years now. It was my starter bike. I now lowered the bars as far as they will go and use it for my gravel, grass and errands bike. It works for all that but it's not great at any one thing. It's slow, heavy and inefficient but tough and that's good enough for me till I have a bunch of money to buy more bikes.
