    Used Bike Question

    I am looking to buy a used Trek Navigator 2.0 or 3.0. I currently ride a Trek 6700 and have two herniated dics that can't handle my bike anymore. I rode the Navigator 2.0 last weekend on a 35 mile ride and my back didn't bother me once. When I ride tht same trip on my bike now, I start to feel pain in my lower back about 10 minutes into the ride. My question is does anyone know where I can look to buy a decent used Navigator and even trade in my bike for one? Thanks everyone.

    Why do you think the Navigator 2.0 is better for your back problem?

    In all honesty I really don't know why, it was just a very comfortable ride. I was more upright and it handles the bumps along the path a lot better than my hardtail 6700. I am certainly open to suggestions but having rode the Navigator, my back didn't seem to bother me. I'm not sure the difference between the 2.0 and the 3.0 but I think it may have to do with the components.

    New Navigator 2.0 aren't too terribly expensive, come with a warranty, free shop adjustments, and a fitting to the size for you.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
