Hi , and welcome
You are about the same weight as me but a bit shorter
. I love my trek 4300 but i will point out its weakness.
The drive train is nothing special, i often have to get mine checked and everything realigned/adjusted this could just be because i am rough but the components are on the lower end of the spectrum. The Disc breaks are great they stop well but to much rough riding can leave them needing adjustments.
Both of these problems would be easy to fix yourself if you are happy to spend a bit of time on the weekends maintaining the bike.
Now the biggest issue, the back wheel ... mine lasted about 6 months then i started get spoke problems . In the end i had it rebuilt with a new rim (chukker) and since then it has been fine.
I love mine i commute to work everyday with it , and it is sitting behind me atm begging me to go for a ride
The frame seems to take my abuse well, if i was smart i would put a panier and some fenders on it ...
What color are you looking at ? mine is black and orange gag worthy at first but it really starts to grow on you .
Oh mine is a 2011 Disc , i think . Purchased mine last year November.
Bike at night, it was pouring rain and my partner forgot her umbrella so i rode to meet her with is strapped to the side of the bike
the new back rim
