      I have had this bike a few months now. It has been a great bike. Its a smooth riding bike and easy to ride. I have not been on a bike in 15 years and this bike has been a great step to get me back in the saddle. I do not like the seat, but I suspect that has less to do with the bike and more to do with me not being on a bike for so long. I have been on some trails but mostly ride it around town. It rides well on the road. Very happy with this bike

        I use this bike for local paths and trails and it has performed flawlessly. Very simple construction without a lot of bells and whistles that cost more money. Smooth shifting, smooth ride and a great upright feel when riding. Go to a bike shop and get fitted and it will be an extremely enjoyable experience.

        I bought this bike to replace a secondhand Trek 800 that I gave to a friend. I mostly used it for trail riding and foul weather riding until I converted it to a longtail cargo bike with an Xtracycle Free Radical conversion. I also replaced the horrible seat, pedals, and handlebars. But that was several months into ownership. I trail rode with others who had newer full suspension and was able to keep up with them. I also replaced the Suntour 2025 front shocks with Nashbar solid forks as I am old school. Overall a great bike.

        I used to ride BMX and mtn bikes many years ago so I was looking to get back into cycling. The Trek 820 was the perfect "re-entry" bike for me. Great quality and value. As long as you're not looking to go extreme, this is a solid product.

        I have beaten this bike hard and it keeps asking for more! Great bike! I got it on sale and at first I I didn't like it, as soon as I got comfortable with it I couldn't put it down. I need to replace a lot of parts on the bike but after the amount of abuse I have put it through that's expected. It's a great bike, If you find it on sale don't hesitate.

          The 820 was the very first bike I bought many years ago when I decided to go from biking around the neighborhood to real hard-core mountain biking. This bike totally filled and surpassed my expectations. The 820 had superior quality than even the next Trek I bought, the 3600, now discontinued but resembling the new 3 Series, that even had disc brakes and other stuff. I would definitely get another 820.

          I bought this bike for my girlfriend. A year later she loved it so much she bought me one for x-mas. 17 years thousands of miles and several sets of tires later I'm still in love with this bike. For the past few years I have been pulling my two grandchildren in a trailer. It NEVER wears out. I just bought my 35 year old daughter one to keep her from stealing mine all of the time. I'm basically a rails to trails flatlander so it fits my needs perfectly. I highly recommend this to anyone.

          Purchased this to start out mountain biking. It is slightly heavier than other steel frame designs that I have looked out but not too heavy to lift in and out of the bed of a pick-up truck. The only problem that I have had is a flat tire the second time using it, but I think that had more to do with the location we were riding (construction traffic). The tire was easily removed and the inner-tube patched within seconds so no big deal. So far so good with this one. I am 6'3" 260# and am riding a 19.5" frame 820 which is a little smaller than I probably need, but I am sharing this with someone and it is working out fine for both of us.
