Review of "Trek 5200"
I bought the 2003 model so after 4 years of riding it I thought why not write a review!The bike is very easy to live with, I have had no mechanical problems to speak of. In fact i did not have any punctures for the first 2 years, and was beginning to think the bike was "blessed" in some way.
Ride quality is silky smooth. Obviously it is a stiff bike but the carbon frame and design geometry take the harshness out of the bumps. In fact in some bizzar way, I actually enjoy going over bumps and feeling how the frame soaks them up (!?). It's true - honest!The bike handles like a dream. It does not have the kind of sharp handling you might desire of a criterium bike, but this has been designed for race tours. Consequently it goes into corners smoothly and then corners like it's on rails. Power transfer is excellent also - better than my previous aluminium Canondale.
