Update 1
Now down further to £400
Nice hybrid bike from Trek for £435 click & collect only at Evans Cycles. The Trek Dual Sport 3 from 2019 can be used on- or off-road, with adaptable hydraulic suspension on the front forks. When riding on trails, simply unlock the suspension to absorb the shocks of the rougher terrain. Then lock it again when back on smooth road surfaces.

It's a good looking bike too, with nice features like in-built cables so not to spoil the aesthetic, hydraulic brakes, and black stainless spokes. Add mud guards and pannier rack and you've got the ideal city bike too.

"Dual Sport 3 is a high-performance hybrid bike with upgraded components that stand up to long rides on a variety of surfaces, from city streets to gravel trails and more! The lightweight frame is easy to accessorise for your style of riding with racks, mudguards, a fitness tracker, lights and more. Plus, front suspension, Tubeless Ready rims, and puncture-resistant tyres give you the confidence to take on bigger adventures."

Looks very nice and some decent components only the front suspension spoils it for me, adds a lot of weight and complexity and really don't see the point of it on such a model. Makes it more of a slow comfort model. It has 700x38 tyres anyway so they should provide sufficient comfort on their own.
Not as good as rutlandcycling.com/bik…071 with code 50OFF = £474, which I already posted and got about -60 heat lol

The specs like drivetrain superior on the Giant

Here's your deal- the code still works. Maybe we can at least get it above 0 heat!

You would be right if you'd actually ride only on the road. Riding on crappy sidewalks the suspension helps with the phone mount on the handlebar if nothing else. Usually i keep the fork locked, but if you like doing easy trails or longish gravel roads that suspension is really helpful, for me at least.

I had to chose between this 2 models about 2 months ago.
Went for the trek and don't regret it, The drive train might be a tiny bot better on giant, I prefer the range given by the 3 chainrings.

I'm glad you're happy with your purchase.
Bit riding on sidewalks sounds a bit dangerous not to mention illegal.
With 40c tyres I think you'd find this bike reasonably comfortable even without the front suspension.
But for some reason manufacturers seem to insist on installing heavy coil sprung forks on hybrid bikes.
This bike is now £400, not £435.
I've got the older model DS1 which is very similair to this. I use it for my commute to work which is around a 16 mile round trip on a mix of road, path and track. Suspension makes it a more comfortable ride in my opinion but it does add a bit of weight.

If you spend time getting the tyre inflation just right so that the sidewalls of the tyre only deflect under impacts like dropping off pavements etc they can provide a suspension effect without a weight penalty. Many inflate to the maximum pressure written on the sidewall but you should tune your tyres to your weight. 700x38 tyres have enough volume to provide a decent suspension effect. In my opinion you only really need suspension for proper off-road use. Gravel bikes don't have suspension and they can go pretty much the same areas as this Trek Dual Sport. It's just a basic Suntour NEX fork on this bike which we see on bikes sometimes less than £200 a very basic spring fork with fairly small stanchions, for off road use strong rigid steel forks would be better with regards safety. Suntour NEX weigh about 2.5kg or more so probably cost you about 1.5-1.8kg over normal rigid forks. I just feel for riding dynamics, easy riding up hill and lower maintenance rigid forks are a better option for most people for hybrid bikes. I would certainly suggest that people try both types of bike before purchase.

Saying that sometimes the most heavily discounted bikes are the bikes where the spec isn't quite right for you so if you end up with a bike with one component you don't want and it may be cheaper to swop that component and sell on the original component.
I rode one of these (hired) on a week's tour in Portugal and it performed admirably. It's a little heavy for just road use but it also handled steep hills, rough terrain and some quite tough off road sections. The suspension lock out is a definite plus. If you are using it as road/commuter bike you can lock it out but if you also want to try some more demanding terrain unlock it for increased capability. This is a decent bike at a decent price I'd say.
I'm seriously tempted.
This is now down to £400 in Evans Black Friday deals. Op might want to change price.
Evans now £400 Black Fri deal
