hey! been using a target(w/o discs) 4 around 9 months (used it every single day even durin the monsoons...hmm.. you can maybe take out at the most 10 days
well.. to begin off... i find it very light compared to many other bikes i've seen(i've lifted a 3700 once and found it to be a little heavier than the target... i was surprised!!)
... but i guess the not-so-often-mentioned-componentry (like the handlebar and the cranks and seatpost and the pedals etc. etc.) onboard the trek 3700 does make the target feel WEAK!
as for the ride experience... i've had no big issues( other than some untrue wheels twice due to excessive stunting!
).... i have 18.5" version,, im 5'9"-5'10" and weigh around 55kgs! and hence no broken pedals yet (but i guess the pedals have worn out sooooooo much that i feel like i can slip off netime!
(and like someone else mentioned, i too found the seatpost a tad bit short)
1) i hate the stock kenda kobra tyres that come with the target! i've had a really bad fall once mainly cause of it!! i already replace the back tire with a maxxis crossmark(though these are way fatter... they roll much faster than the kenda kobras and wayyyyyyy more puncture resistant)
2) the front shock ups suck!! (the bike would have been better off without it) and btw... this view is my personal view... cause my friend loves the suntour shocks on my target!
3)the seat really uncomfortable!!( i've been trying to live with it all this time... my bums have become as strong as steel now!!)
4) the grips arent very good either...i actually wore them out after 7 months!!! ( i mean they literally wore out like my shoes soles)
the GOOD stuff!!
well... nothing much!!!! i just love my cycle !!! i love the lightness and paintjob a lot!!!
but if anybodys purchasing it for a purpose(commuting, trails, road rage!! etc) then they should seriously look at giant/scwinn/trek/khs/cannondale/merida/RR etc...
PS- im totally in love with the giant revel series!! just love their paintjob and frames!.. my next bikes definitely a giant!!
