Trek X500 bike review

Trek produced the X500 bike in 2005 and can be classified as a Touring bicycle.
X500 bike is available in many sizes such as 50cm (centimeters), 55cm (centimeters) and 60cm (centimeters).
Trek Touring X500 can be found in one single color which is Blue.
This bike is equiped with 700 x 35c Bontrager Satelite tires and Stainless steel spoke wheel while the rims are manufactured by Bontrager Superstock disc. Trek equiped this exact model with Shimano BR-M495 brakes, aluminum levers braking system and Bontrager Superstock Disc hubs.
To guarantee the comfiest ride Trek used Aluminum material for the frame. Bontrager Select high strength material is used on the handlebar of this X500 to ensure the perfect handling while the stems are made of Aluminum adjustable.
For the smoothest biking experience Shimano M460 is used on this bicycle linked to 1/2 x 3/32" chain that is easily replaceable as stated by Trek, the whole system is connected to a high reliability Shimano Deore RapidFire gear shift levers.
