    Its light and the brakes are good. Very unhappy that Tyres got lots of puntures, so needed to change. Saddle was very hard and not easy on the bum. Lower Bracket went after five months and I don't cycle lots of miles.

      Comments:

      I mostly mountain bike on my Gary Fisher Marlin and had been also using that bike to commute to/from work (9.5 miles each way). While the Marlin wasn't developed as a commuter bike, it got the job done. Since I can't always get out to single track ride, I was wanting to start putting some distance in during the week, which isn't exactly comfortable on the Marlin. I was looking for a perfect bike for my commute ride, that would allow me to do extended trail/road rides of 40-60 miles, and be able to handle some easier single track rides. The Trek 8.6 DS has been the perfect bike in that regard. I just purchased it last week and took it out this weekend on a 45 mile ride that consisted of paved trails, crushed rock trails, and some simple single track. The bike performed wonderful. One pavement and crushed rock, the ride was buttery smooth with the suspension locked down. I unlocked the suspension for the single track rides and this bike handled those beautifully. I'd be comfortable taking it on a medium course, but nothing further than that. The suspension is great, the shifting is extremely smooth, the ability to lock out the suspension from your shifting position is awesome! I was worried about the saddle for a longer ride, but it actually was fairly comfortable. Also, the grips and great on this bike. I didn't bring my gloves with me and didn't suffer from hand numbness once. With most hybrids, you get a jack of all trades, master of none, but I don't feel like you're really making a sacrifice with this bike. I would highly recommend!
